The full text from THE HONOUR OF THE KNIGHTS (THE BATTLE FOR THE SOLAR SYSTEM, BOOK ONE) (FIRST EDITION), in plain text, HTML, ePub, PDF and office formats. Those interested in translating the book will find the Open Office and the Word 97 documents useful. Essentially the same story, the First Edition is structurally different from the Second Edition, containing fewer chapters, less detail and a style that is somewhat inconsistent with the core trilogy. Those seeking a more fulfilling reading experience should favour the Second Edition. You can download these files for offline reading, as well as for use on eBook readers.
