Re: Mike Cropo (A Spartan's War Series) R.I.P.

According to SOL, his last update was made the day he died. (Updated: 11/9/2017, 5:22:18 PM) Lazeez the owner/operator of SOL was/is a member of Mike's website and he posted those chapters that were waiting for that batch to be approved. He did that and updated the notes to tell everyone Mike passed.

It did sound like it might make an interesting story, but as far as I can see, there are dozens of stories there and your quoted blurb is a general baseline on which all follow up stories a...

Re: Lost & Found

I've recently been reading about the history of golf and it reminded me of a story I read a while ago, probably on SOL from what I remember of it. Anyway, the boy becomes a pro golfer and eventually has back problems. It's the second book (I think) I'm interested in finding; where he sets up a golf...

I did it too. We need to vote it once every month. So someone needs to revive this thread every month so that people remember to vote again. The default setting for them is one week, you have to manually go in and change the length of how long your vote lasts. If you don't then you need to go back ...
