This is the very first typed version of Eric Olafson's Story (from 1995) . I put it here out of reguest of my oldest and first fan and reader, who wanted to re-read the first Version that made him start reading "Galactic Chronicles".
I think it is also shows the progress of the story and is a neat way for me to keep the old stuff as a searchable reference.
The First Version 1995 - Chapter 1
My home world Nifleheim was the fourth planet in the Njorsk System. A cold Type III Garden world, with long harsh winters, 98% Water and only 2% Land. I was born to Isegrim Olafson, a rich patriarch and clan chief of the Olafson Clan. My mother died when I was just five. He had then chosen another wife and had 2 more sons with her, my half brothers. As the first born I would have been my duty to follow the lead of my father and become a Tyranno Fin hunter, pilot the family sub and fight with other Clan chiefs for the honor to be Chief of chiefs when my father died. It didn’t work out and my father almost killed me twice for what he felt where transgressions against honor and tradition. Everything was always a transgression against honor and tradition with him anyway. He disowned me when I was 15, declared me unfit to be his son and heir, making my second brother heir to it all. I had spent the last 2 years not living with my father but with my uncle in Harstad Fjord. There was not much of a future for me on Nifleheim and there weren’t many career options open to a disowned son of an old family, so the decision what to do with my life was an easy one. That is why I boarded a space bus 17 days ago, after seeing a Navy recruiter.
