Eighteen years ago...

It was eighteen years, almost to the day (it was early October 1987, that's all I remember) when I first started writing Voyage. Back then, though, it was just called Xanadu. The fundamental premise was very much the same: build a ship with some money and go colonize a distant world. It totaled about 20 or so handwritten pages on yellow legal pad. I still have all those pages minus the first six, so I have no clue how the story started now (not exactly anyway). But that's how Voyage got started. I did nothing to that "manuscript" until late 1989. That bit is for a later entry.
