The Cockatoo River Incident edited

Got most of my typos out today. I really need to buy a copy of Word.

Also added a few lines to explain why we did not come to the rescue will ALL guns blazing.

Carrying on from Out of the frying pan, we are still on the Agent Provocateur mission.

Not everyone gets a happy ending...


Now after Word has gotten most of the cock-ups, I'm going through line-by line looking for the rest.

For new and not so new viewers

A little history:

Meddlers in Time started life as two books- Meddlers in Time and Meddlers in Time- Culture Shock. There are five copys of each in print version- I had a small print done as a test run. At that time I thought the books migh never go any further than that.

But then I rolled the two together, as I planned to self-publish and it was more economical for me to produce one big book.

The next book was started- this was to be Meddlers in Time- Catspaw and covered mainly the adventures in the 35th century that happened before the first book(s)

But then came ebooks and I changed plans, deciding to release the parts of the book as short novels/novellas. This seems to be the way to go when targeting the ebook reader users and those reading on IPhones, Ipads and suchlike.

So I rolled out the first part of this tale as Meddlers in Time- Out of the frying pan, into the fire.

Next came Meddlers in Time- The Cockatoo River Incident and now I'm working on the next part, Meddlers in Time- Downward to Earth.
