    To read summaries of her stories, download the .doc file of Timetales, and do a search for the titles.

    The link to Timetales is in my signature.

    Alex Winger is a great character. I love the way that her history, as well as Dair Haslip's and Matt Turhaya's, are told across many years, all interconnected.

    You can find many of Charlene's stories in the old West End Games SW Adventure Journals.

    Perhaps this question sounds juvenile, but now that West End Games is "caput," where is the best online place to scrounge around for the AJ's? Ebay?

    I'd like to know that, too. I really need to find AJ's! Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!

    I just got four AJs in Ebay (for 2-10$). And I found Charlene's stories very enjoyable.
