I haven't read Anthony's story, not because I dislike his writing, but for the more practical reason that i find it difficult to read it in its current format. I also avoid the Shado Library as much as possible.
I would prefer it if you did not review any of my fanfiction on this site. Reviews are more than welcome on my website and although comments are moderated there, i have only ever rejected one comment from a woman who complained that I was writing about her husband, Ed Straker, and it was wrong of me to do so. ;)
The general consensus among many male fans of UFO is that 'fanfiction' is the prerogative of hormonal women and I would prefer not to have my work - whether you regard it as readable or otherwise - subjected to ridicule. The Shepherd was written during a time of great personal stress and personally, even though it is hugely flawed, I will always cherish it for what it was. I would hate to see it mocked by people who openly state their contempt of fanfic writers.
Please remember, many of my stories are aimed at female fans of the series and are therefore primarily romance based, though several later ones - Green Man, Vodka, Wolf, Dies Canicularies etc have no romantic setting.
I respect the rights of readers to their opinion, but this forum is not, in my opinion. the right place to review stories unless an author has requested such - as on ffnet and AO3
Cheers, Ltcdr ;)
