“Research”

In writing these stories, I've found that "research" comes in two varieties.  First, there is the task of finding factual information about the time, place, events, and situations I'm writing about.  As time goes on, I will attempt to list some of the sources I've used in obtaining these facts.  On the other hand, as these are works of fiction, and as a lot of the stories take place in a completely different world, I get to make up a lot of it as well.  In doing so, I've found it convenient to make lists of characters, drawings of ships and vessels, maps, flags, and even uniforms.  I use them for consistency in my writing, and you may find them interesting as well.  Therefore, most, if not all of these items will eventually be included here.
