Perception Series:

 

I suppose practically every author in the world of TSFF has tried to deal with the aftermath of 'The Sentinel by Blair Sandburg' in their own unique way. The 'Perceptions' series began as my attempt to create a resolution to the episode that I could live with. The original three stories, 'A Matter of Perception', 'Vengeance is Mine' and 'You Can Run' were eventually joined by the others, all following the same storyline. The later stories draw on events in the original trilogy to different degrees, and it's certainly possible to read them without having read the original three stories. I've also written other stories that deal with TSBS in different ways because it's interesting to me to play with the idea of how Jim and Blair would deal with those life-altering events. I hope you'll enjoy the stories in the 'Perceptions' series.

 

The first two stories listed here are not directly connected to the series. Instead they show the story behind certain elements in the other stories.
