Today it's the turn of the fourth in the series - Poisoned Rationality. The free digital version(s) may be accessed from my MediaFire folder. Currently I have ePub and PDF formats in there.
However, if it was merely a case of reformatting this story, as I have with all of the others so far, you would have been able to access it yesterday afternoon. I've gone a little bit further with this one.
Basically, I've remastered the whole thing. I began last night, then devoted the entire of today to it too. I didn't quite mean to do so, but things happen. I've read the story from start to finish, then tinkered with the wording. Insofar as I could find them, all typos are now gone, and all of the flashbacks, letters and EHC forum chats are properly formatted.
Then I edited the novel.
Part of me is cringing slightly in guilt at this. I know that readers haven't reacted well in the past to me suggesting that certain It Matters novels could do with a rewrite. I understand that there are those of you who can quote whole sections back to me, and who have read and re-read every tale a humbling amount of times. You don't want me to alter a single syllable. You even love the spelling mistakes.
But well, perfection.
I'm not saying that Poisoned Rationality is now perfect. No novel can ever be that (unless it's Wuthering Heights obviously). However, there are some chapters that have now been quite heavily reworded, and others which have received merely the lightest spit and polish. The story itself hasn't fundamentally changed, but bits of the presentation gleam a little harder. An emphasis might have shifted here and there (quite a lot of there in some places), so it might read like a slightly different novel.
I suppose that I should have given you all a choice - made an eBook of the original before I started tatting with it. But I didn't know that I'd eventually end up with over twenty-four hours of rewritten material. The original remains in the website library and on AFF too.
In addition, I've gone through the Poisoned Rationality section of the website. I've fixed all of the links; removed the dead ones; embedded new iframes where the originals had died; added in a store; and created a YouTube playlist to replace the old defunct one.
I hope you like the remastered version (and the die-hards aren't already writing my name in their black notebooks for doing it). Let me know what you think.
