Hi all,
  I'm a bit surprised that no one has commented on the out of order chapters of this story.
I have written both to the author and to Tim.  Chapter 13 is called 'Skip' and should really follow
the current chapter - 15, as Z has just met Skip!
I also follow this story on another site and it seems to be in order, but IOMFATS updates more
often.  I like the story and the author and just noticed things out of sync with the continuity.
that's all - John

All I know, John is that it is in the same order as the source file Rick Beck sent to me

I noticed that too! I thought maybe I had a few too many adult beverages while reading previous chapters. Glad to see it's not just me...

If nothing else, one can always e-mail the author and ask.  (I don't think Rick Beck hangs out here on the forums - or at least he doesn't make comments if he does; I know I was a part of a discussion on one of his other stories a while back, and he never did comment on any of the things brought up in the thread).

Thanks Timmy, Mark and luvtwinks for replying.  I did contact Rick and he did send me a rather lenghty email that thanked me
for being observant,....but never really addressed the mix up in the later chapters.  He did say this was a rewrite and he added
a bit more to the beginning.
He also sent a follow up after I replied, that was mostly about his history of writing stories and the few sites there
were in the 90's to post them.
All seems to have worked out now as the chapters are in sync as we get near the end of the story.
