With the posting of chapter 4 of "The Lad Who Poked the Devil in the Eye", I've restructured the first five chapters (1 - 4) of the story, as well as removing a couple sections (in the Prologue and the new chapter 1) and revised a bit of the first chapter.
The reason for this is that, because of its slow start, readers never realized the essential story conflicts until chapter 4. Now, everyone understands what Otis is facing upfront, even if they don't know the details, so the story flashes back to the beginning.
If you're curious, feel free to reread chapter 1, but otherwise, I wouldn't bother with the other chapters, as essentially nothing has changes other than the presentation.
If you haven't started the story yet, then don't worry about it. The story is now stronger than it was before.
