Links in x0

x0 is interactive in the sense that both online versions contain a few (one to five) links per chapter which take the reader to music, photo’s and the rare short news item or article to serve as enhancements to the story.  The links on the Amazon version all work on a Kindle Fire, and the links in the smashwords version will open when the book is read on a computer.
As explained to the reader in the introduction, if one is reading on a device without these capabilities, or one simply does not like the distraction of jumping around, then the book can be read just fine without going to any of the links. They are not essential to the plot.
The links are also given in order below so that they can be perused at any reader’s leisure.
