comment Quality examples of 'in medias res' starting sequences in SF literature
@lau I wouldn't say so. TV is a really? bad example for this... And since it's going to be a serial, the 'ending-point' I've posted isn't preceding the climax; it's actually the first part of the cliffhanger after the climax. The rest of the story has its own plot with consequences that lead to a climax in chapter 43 (since I already mentioned that) and later what should be the second part of the serial... Still, I'm asking for quality examples for a hard SF novel; I can't say I saw anything on TV close to that.

"nothing's related, no context": solved in the revision. - "Too much info": That'll need some more work. - "switching between tenses erratically and inconsistently": I seriously can't see where this came from! Are you sure you're reading the revised version? Here: link

@lauren Could you take a look at the revised version (the above link) and message me somehow? See if you could start a chat since I can't yet...

That's very thorough! I had some questions, objections, etc… But I really need to go now and I could only upload another version I hope is better… Please read and comment again here; if I didn't add a comment with my questions, etc… before then! Thanks a lot.

Sorry, but I can't really find the guidelines for a 'critique request.' My impression was that if something was read, and people said their opinion of it, that's criticizing... Pretty much, those 1100 words should get the reader into the story, hopefully with line getting him to the next.
