Comment on the Two Kingdoms fanfic

Really enjoyed this beginning. Well enjoyed is hardly the word, but atmospheric and intriguing. I would love for there to be more.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

I tried to create a discussion topic link at the top of the story to link back to this comments thread, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to have worked, even though I followed the directions in my own tutorial.  Smacking the Fanfics System feature with a virtual mackerel in hopes that will help.  Maybe there's just some sort of an update delay and the new link will be visible eventually.

I must ask someone at the forum. I went through my files today but couldn't find my old Deryni Archives copies with my story "Season of the Sword" in them. So I am hoping all issues will be put on line! Or that someone can scan that story and email me the pdf. Is there a particular forum topic area you'd recommend as the place where I might best ask? Many thanks!

Hello Doctor M.
I looked in the Deryni Archives web pages   found at http://www.airsid.net/C/75.htm  I found the story Season of the Sword part 1 is in issue 7, and Season of the Sword part 2 is in issue 8.  I don't remember if I had read these a few years ago or not.  I will have to look them up and read them again-or for the first time. Wonderful to hear you were the writer.
Because the story was in a published fan magazine, is the author allowed to put it up on the forum? It would be wonderful if you could do so.  I don't know what agreements were made for the fan Magazine. Or do we have to wait for the whole set of fan magazines to be digitized and put up maybe as a purchasable PDF?

I know that @Bynw and @Marilyn were in discussion as Marilyn has hard copies of issues 1-14 of the fan zine, and I think she was going to ship them to him so that he could digitize them.

As to other zine conversations, we'd have to ask @JulianneTK because she was the editor-in-chief, so to speak, and the last I knew, the last set of submissions she had that she had intended to publish as another issue are stuck on a hard drive of a computer that is not being cooperative.

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

I'd love to post it! If I can get a copy (and I will go through the boxes I've accumulated over a lifetime of moving around!) I'll do a bit of editing and see about posting. I'll have to puzzle out if there are any copyright issues. I have a feeling that back thirty-odd years ago, no one was thinking about such things in fandom.

Julianne here---Evie thank you for mentioning my name so that I got notified...  As far as I recall, rights revert to author upon publication.

I still have copies of the zines for sale.... even though it seems to take me forever to get them to the post office...

I did go through a couple of storage boxes early this morning. Among all sorts of memorabilia from the Long Ago, I did find the two issues of Deryni Archives with 'Season of the Sword' in them. I think I will type up the story as a corrected manuscript and save it to a flash drive. I'm obsessive about correcting my grammar or spelling (I type with 1.5 fingers), and there are probably things I'd tighten up or word differently. I'll have the text in case it's deemed okay to post it...thirty-odd years after the first appearance.
