Version 2.0 of The Brigade, the fourth novel in the Northwest independence series, is now available for download at
This version is in 12 point type, a little over 334,000 words, and is 517 pages in length. It is paginated for printing. If you do print out a copy, you will need to make sure that you have plenty of ink cartridges, toner cartridges, or whatever your printer uses.
This is the first public version of the book for samisdat distribution, on the internet and in hard copy form. Version 3.0 will be the actual published book form, but that is some months away. This downloadable version has been copyrighted by me, which explains a lot of the holdup in getting it out.
