Maps and Diagrams by Author
……….Here are the maps and diagrams that make up the story. There are sixty of them. In the books themselves, the maps are often too small to show the scope of what is happening. They were reduced for many reasons, but basically, the ebook formatting does not permit such large diagrams. Here we have the original large maps from which the others then were taken. The point here is to allow readers an opportunity to find their way through the story with original legible larger maps to help them.
……….The way they are organised is two fold:
……….First is the maps of the Galaxy. These are simply chronological. That way you can see the changes to map boundaries as they occur in relation to each story, one after the other.
……….Second was to have the rest of the diagrams as they happen in the story, with the last book at the end. For example, you can see the thirteen diagrams for the Battle of Sequetus 3, with all their legible text, which is not available in the ebook publications at the beginning here. You can see the Local Group of galaxies as the last map at the end.
……….While the author did these diagrams personally, he acknowledges that others could do them better. Originally they were done so that he could keep track of the story, but then he realised readers would likely enjoy them too. The below are produced not to show artistic flair, but to help the reader get a better reading experience.
