The Inevitable Connection
(from God is a Sadist)
As with many novels Iíve written over the years, this has a number versions. What is scanned here are two versions which includes an early 1980s attempt at a rewrite, and the original version written in the 1970s.
I halted the rewrite to eventually restructure the novel for a third rewrite Ė which I only have the outline for. So Iím including the second rewrite as the beginning of this which is concluded with the original manuscript.
In the rewrite, I use the fictional names that will later become standard for all the novels that include these characters. But in the original manuscript I use the real names since the stories are based on real events.
