Writing this story, the fourth in the “Hypno-Talkers Of Zlar” series, has been a bear. In the first three stories in the series, I was just having fun. If I dropped story threads, who cared? I didn’t.

But now in HTOZ-4, I have to do two things at once:

1) Make the story fun, for both you and me.

2) Resolve all the story threads.

I started this story last December. Months passed in which I wrote nothing, while I figured out what to do. But now I’m back on track, and in a few weeks, “he says hopefully,” I’ll have the story ready for editing.

Now I have a title: “Nerd Saves Women.”

The story behind the title: Egbert, the Mechanical Engineering major who in HTOZ-1 was not a chick magnet, decides that he is going to rescue the nineteen Earth women (and one female alien) who in HTOZ-3 walked off a Zlarian spaceship, only to be taken captive by the US Army. But now in HTOZ-4, Egbert winds up doing much more than he originally figured on.

I haven’t finished Nerd Saves Women yet, but already I’m proud of it. And if you enjoyed the first three HTOZ stories, not to mention Three More Wishes and The Bimborg, I guaran-fricking-tee you’ll enjoy this last story as well.
