Official Magazine on the Web?

Following the sad announcement that the next issue of the Official Stargate Magazine will be it's last, there is perhaps hope that all is not lost...

Author Richard Dinnick has posted on his website that he has written an SGU short story for Titan's Official Stargate magazine website! The title of the story is Braking Point and has a 2010 release date.

I haven't had a chance to look into this yet but will post any news once I have it! Anyone heard anything?

'Hunt and Run' Discussion & Info Post



When the hunted become hunters…

Ronon Dex is a mystery. His past is a closed book and he likes it that way. But when the Atlantis team triggers a trap that leaves them stranded on a hostile world, only Ronon’s past can save them — if it doesn’t kill them first.

As the gripping tale unfolds, we return to Ronon’s earliest days as a Runner and meet the charismatic leader who transformed him into a hunter of Wraith. But grief and rage can change the best of men and it soon becomes clear that those who Ronon once considered brothers-in-arms are now on the hunt — and that the Atlantis team are their prey.

Unless Ronon can out hunt the hunters, Colonel Sheppard’s team will fall victim to the vengeance of the V’rdai.

'Dead End' Discussion & Info Post



Deep freeze

Trapped on a planet being consumed by a runaway ice age, Colonel Sheppard and his team discover a people — and a mystery — long disregarded by the Ancients.

With the Stargate inoperable and their Puddle Jumper damaged, there is no way for Sheppard’s team to escape the killing cold. Death seems inevitable until they are rescued by the Forgotten, a people abandoned by those who once protected them — and now condemned to witness the slow death of their world.

But something terrifying haunts their tunnel homes. When Teyla disappears and Ronon goes missing on the deadly ice plains, Sheppard and McKay risk losing their only chance of getting home in a desperate bid to find their friends and save the Forgotten from extinction...

Big Finish have announced a pair of new companion books to their audio ranges:

"Big Finish is delighted to announce The Big Finish Companion by Richard Dinnick, a hardback coffee table guide to every Big Finish audio title released. It’s the definitive episode guide and collectors’ check list - every cast member, all crew details, full synopses – including spoilers! It includes all production codes and story trivia along with recommendations for plays you may like and collections of behind-the-scenes photography.

In fact, The Big Finish Companion includes everything you’ve ever wanted to know about any of the audio ranges produced by the company.

Split into two volumes, the first part of the ultimate compendium of Big Finish plays will be published later this year, with a second to be published in 2011.

Written by Richard Dinnick, journalist and, himself, a writer of audio dramas for Big Finish (Sapphire & Steel, Bernice Summerfield, Stargate), The Big Finish Companion will provide introductions to all the ranges with new interviews conducted with the producers and scriptwriters. It also provides the reader with profiles of the companions that Big Finish created for the Doctor Who ranges.

If you are a fan of Big Finish, you cannot miss The Big Finish Companion.

Available at a special discount for pre-order now!"

A little novel news

See below for updates posted by Steven Savile @ the GateWorld Forum:

"Was just chatting with Aaron, about Stargate and stuff, and he let slip that Hunt and Run is currently *at the printers* so, be prepared to get excited... a new Atlantis novel any day now... just call me the bearer of good news."

and the latest on his own book:

"I believe, for Throne, I'll get my proofs next weekish, and then turn them around in a week or so... then off to the printer it'll go. So it's all gathering some pace now."

Tweets & Blogs for Thurs 20th May

Brandon Jerwa has been tweeting about his Stargate comic Vala Mal Doran...

@jaffalycosa Correct. That's literally all the information I have. Rest assured, there will be plenty of P.R. if/when that happens.
http://twitter.com/jerwa/status/14387912898

@jaffalycosa I figured out the mix-up, hence my deletion. As for SG-1, I hope we get to do that at some point.
http://twitter.com/jerwa/status/14387719056

@jaffalycosa Thanks for the kind words, sir! The Vala book is fun to write. ;)

This Stargate fan has qualms about my aliens, but highly approves of Vala's comic portrayal. http://tinyurl.com/2d38tyg

Jo Graham has blogged about the Legacy Series...

Sam and John?

Deleted scenes?

And Steven Saville has posted on the GateWorld Forum with a status update on the Iblis Trilogy...

"And word back from MGM, Throne has been approved, so is going into the printing stage now. Watch this space."

He also recently posted:

"Well Throne ends in such a way that there is every bit of space for a second, but no actual *need* for one, so if it doesn't happen, no worries, if it does, great. In terms of logistics, even if I want to do the second volume, I am contracted for 3 other novels at the moment, so it would be about 14 months before I could start it, then something like 12 plus months for edits and turn around to print given the way it seems to have worked this time out, so probably something in excess of 2 years from the pub of Throne, which is far from ideal... but given that there aren't cliffhangers etc still eminently doable. It's basically in Fandy's and you the fans hands. If Throne sells well enough I am sure they'll ask me to do Shapeshifter."
