Passed 25,000 words in Silent Vector. I consider that to be the half-way mark. Juggling a couple of subplots while keeping the overall story moving is a fun challenge. I've introduced two new characters, and reintroduced an old friend from The Heraklion Gambit. Surprisingly, the research for some of the details of life in 1962 has been more difficult than researching the 1950s. It could be a function of the relatively remote location I've chosen. Much has been written about life in Europe during the 1950s, while there isn't a whole lot out there on St. Thomas circa 1962. What I have found is solid and fits right in with the action.
