 fun new sci fi FALLING TO DESTINY

Posted by Peter3053 (2nd Nov 2009, 09:24)

May I recommend to members my new novel FALLING TO DESTINY by Peter Fleming?

Hymoliga Eight (a mobile talking Martian plant), Kim Hawthorne (a space ethicist from the not so distant future) and the mysterious narrator who goes by the name of "Ishmael Starbuck" join together as fugitives through space and time, travelling to Titan, where all art has been banned, to renaissance Finland (where they encounter the alien race known as "sea monks") and to distant Tarsarsus, which is being ravaged by self-perfecting robots called the Pelagyans.

Adventure science fiction with a human touch a good dose of wit.

Check out the blurb at amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com.

Paperback. Great cover great title, fun blurb, great read. It'd look good on your shelf.

It's not every day that a piece of sci fi comes up from Down Under.

Gratefully,

Peter Fleming

 David Eddings Dead at 77

Posted by Kvetch (3rd Jun 2009, 20:15) - http://scifi.about.com

Whatever people think of David Eddings and his writing, his influence cannot be ignored.

I don't know about anyone else, but the Belgariad was a milestone in my introduction to SF&F. As he himself said: "I am here to teach a generation or two how to read. After they've finished with me and I don't challenge them any more, they can move on to somebody important like Homer or Milton."

Since the Belgariad all those years ago, I've read longer, more complex novels, and ones far more critically regarded, but Eddings and his books will always have a place in my heart.

 New Monkey Island game series

Posted by dormouse (2nd Jun 2009, 13:11) - http://www.telltalegames.com

A new Monkey Island game, finally! Actually, a series of 5 episodes... Telltale Games is releasing the first on Jul 7th, and it's available for preorder now.

Don't worry about the episodic thing... Telltale has already proved it can do it with 2 series of Sam & Max. They do lack the depth of a single longer game, and the puzzles aren't as hard, but the bite-size short stories do have their charm :)

WB has been discussing more low-budget B5 projects - but JMS has decided he does not want to work on any more half-hearted efforts (anything less than a "full-featured, big-budget feature film"). I think many of us were getting tired of this game too, which often led to disappointment. (read the rest of the article)

More on the upcoming new B5 stories. It's going down to 2 stories, but they will be correspondingly bigger and better and the 3rd will still be done but in the next DVD. He gives more details on the story, characters and on updating the CGI approach.

Looking forward to this :D

The concept art that JMS commissioned to help sell B5 to people is now being sold as a calendar - which means people not buying the script books can see small versions of it at least :) And a few have better pics on their own items at the bottom of this page: (www.cafepress.com).

 sf in 6 words

Posted by Sulkyblue (24th Oct 2006, 19:06) - http://www.wired.com

"Hemingway once wrote a story in just six words ("For sale: baby shoes, never worn.") and is said to have called it his best work. So we asked sci-fi, fantasy, and horror writers from the realms of books, TV, movies, and games to take a shot themselves."

By the Lost/MI3 people... weird.

Will apparently "focus on the early days of Captain James T Kirk and Mr Spock.

The as-yet-untitled feature will tell of their first meeting at Starfleet Academy and first outer space mission."

Posted by dormouse (18th Apr 2006, 18:18) - http://www.babylon5scripts.com

Getting into the really good stuff now - mid-season 3 :) This is the season where he says things went best, most according to plan - the network left them alone, they thought they were going to get 5 years... Also includes a tribute to Andreas Katsulas.

The commentaries are a handful of pages per episode, very entertaining and interesting to read. I might bring them along to the library some evening if there's interest?

For those of us following the series as it airs in the US we're in for a long summer. Rather than start the new series in July (like Stargates will) they're moving it to an October start date. The final episode of Season 2 is tomorrow, so that's a 7 month wait on what is likely to be a cliffhanger.

 "Interesting" new theory of hyperspace

Posted by Cristina (6th Jan 2006, 13:05) - http://www.newscientistspace.com

From the 'so crazy it might even be true' files: a scientist, crippled at a young age in a lab accident, published a paper about a 6-dimensional universe, and using spinning magnets and superconductors to generate gravitational forces and possibly enter alternate dimensions where the speed of light is higher.

According to Heim´s theories, with adequate propulsion systems, we could reach Mars in 3 days, and other star systems 11 light years away in 80 days.

And the scariest thing of all? The US government seems to think it´s a neat idea worth funding.

 Dr Who spin-off series

Posted by Sulkyblue (17th Oct 2005, 10:38) - http://news.independent.co.uk

"The BBC has commissioned the Doctor Who scriptwriter Russell T Davies to make an adult post-watershed spin-off of its most famous sci-fi show. The new programme will be called Torchwood (an anagram of Doctor Who) and will follow a crack team investigating alien activities and crime in modern-day Britain." Many people seem to be disturbed by this, but I think it sounds really rather cool.

Shrouded in secrecy, the picturesque hamlet is actually a community of scientific geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research.

 Firefly to come to the comic book?

Posted by Jakob (11th May 2005, 12:48) - http://www.comicbookresources.com

It looks like Joss Wheedon is writing a comic mini-series to bridge the gap between where Firefly finished and Serenity is due to pick up. Nifty.

Joss Whedon has announced on the official Serenity fansite that the trailer is to be released o the web on Tuesday, and will be played in cinemas from Friday.

Although he hasn't said in which theaters, or in front of which films, it's going to show, accepted wisdom seems to be that it'll run with The Hitchhiker's Guide. Hopefully it'll also be run before Return of the Sith; that should bring it to the attention of a LOT of people.

 Discworld "adult covers"

Posted by John Kirk (15th Nov 2004, 00:24) - http://www.amazon.co.uk

Something I noticed recently - the Discworld paperbacks are now available with "adult" covers - mostly plain black with a small picture in a corner. I think the fronts look quite classy (although quite a shift in tone from the busy Josh Kirby designs), although I wasn't so sure about the back cover for Mort - a picture of a skull with a gold tooth in it seemed to be aiming more for a horror feel, which doesn't suit the tone of the book. Still, it worked for Harry Potter, and I've seen similar things for "His Dark Materials", so I guess it's a new trend.

Exactly how they're going to deal with the more controversial religious elements in the books has not been revealed :-)

Steam users (Valve's online software distribution system) can now download encripted copies of Half Life 2, to be decrypted when they games goes live and they buy it. I should imagine it's just art assets atm but this does suggest the game is a lot closer to Gold than I'ld expected.

 Teaching physics through films

Posted by dormouse (26th Apr 2004, 09:28) - http://physicsweb.org

"What do films like Independence Day, Armageddon and X-Men have in common? The answer is that apart from costing millions of dollars to make, they all feature in a new course called Physics in Films that is being taught to students at the University of Central Florida. Costas Efthimiou, the mathematical physicist who teaches the course, believes that non-science students learn more about the fundamentals of physics by studying films and science fiction than they do from more traditional approaches."

Interesting TV advert I saw earlier, for "Star Trek Collector's Edition magazine". Basically, it comes out each month, and you get a DVD/video with each issue, starting with "First Contact" at 3.99. (read the rest of the article)

An interesting article about spoilers (without any actually in the article), highlighting Gateworld's (SG1 site) policy and why it's there. A little patronising in places, but a nicely well formed policy.

What can you do with 96K? Make an entire first person shooter game, with five weapons, multiple enemies, full lighting and bump mapping? Could you.. these people can..

I've seen some impressive 96K demos before but this one blows them all away. You'll need a decent spec windows PC (1.5 gig, Geforce 4Ti or better) to play it and it's obviously a beta but wow..

An interesting interview with Daniel Falconer, senior designer at Weta Workshop, on the work they've been doing designing art for the upcoming Lord of the Rings TCG Expansion. These include 'alternate' cards (imagine if somebody else had borne the ring for example) and 'book' cards which depict things not seen in the movies (Tom Bombadil for example).

Starting in August, there's a 5 issue comic series: "Rising Stars: Untouchable". This is a spin-off from the main series, featuring Laurel Darkhaven (the special who worked for the CIA - nothing to do with Laurel from "Midnight Nation"). It's written by Fiona Avery, who also wrote the "Rising Stars: Bright" spin-off, and co-wrote the most recent issue of "The Amazing Spider-Man" with JMS. (read the rest of the article)

In what is becoming a motif - JMS has fallen out with the networks and says he will not return for a 3rd season of Jeremiah if it happens. Also comment that if the B5 dvds continue to do well, Crusade shuold get a similar treatment.
