The main forum link was down for a couple of days (no explanation from the host as to why) but the backup link was working. Trouble is not everyone knows the alternate link so I spent a few hours setting up a server status and link page on the web site in case the problem recurs

The Jackass Frigate by Alaric Bond

Just finished reading this excellent novel which deserves to be better known. It has a lot of well developed characters which gives good insight at all levels of the ships company and contains probably the best description of the Battle of Cape St. Vincent I’ve read in a fiction novel. It also seems to┬áhave a well developed back story for the characters as you get hints of their past on the ‘Proteus’ which leaves you wanting to know more. If you haven’t read it, I recommend it and I’m looking forward to the sequel.
