Edit: Oh, and is the different font in the above chapter intended? And by the way, LOVE this story !
I do mean other than that. I mean, Zero is a character who's appeared before. Maybe not a main one, but one of either Kester, Fabien or Barry has at least glimpsed him before.
Thank you for enjoying the story; that's the best thing that can happen for me as an author, really. It's funny: what started out as a tiny side-project has completely pushed all of my main writing stuff out of the way and taken over my authorial life completely.
The different font is a mystery. For some reason, the copy+paste process has left in all the formatting from MS Word this time, instead of reducing it to plain text. I've no idea why it's happened, but I'm not complaining - it means I don't have to go through and manually italicise everything.
