Mike Friedman doesn’t think small. He has envisioned worldafter world and one of his most ambitious projects was an alternate history.
Some years back, he wondered how mankind would have evolvedhad Pangaea, the super-continent, neve shattered into the seven continents weknow today. He did some research, did some wishful thinking, then invited hisfriends to come play in the sandbox.
I was along for the first two rides, creating some characters that Michael Burstein liked well enough to want to use them in his second contribution. That led to a three-way crossover of stories and characters that not only involved us but Lawrence Schoen as well.
And now he’s back for the third and final volume.
What will I be doing for the third one? Dunno yet. I have a vague idea and Mike will be helping me flesh things out. We’ll both be somewhat surprised when the third book debuts at Farpoint in February 2020. The backers will be receiving the book soon after.
Who else is involved? Here’s the lineup: Ilsa J. Bick.Michael A. Burstein. Russ Colchamiro. Peter David. Keith R.A. DeCandido. KevinDilmore. Mary Fan. Michael Jan Friedman. Robert Greenberger. Glenn Hauman. PaulKupperberg. Ron Marz. Aaron Rosenberg. Lawrence M. Schoen. Geoffrey Thorne.Tiffany Trent. Marie Vibbert. Dayton Ward.
The campaign launched on Monday and runs for the usual 30 days. By all means, consider coming along for the ride. If for no other reason, than to see what I wind up writing.
