New Stargate novels arriving in June
FRIDAY - MAY 14, 2004
A brand new series of novels based on Stargate SG-1 is now in production! Published by London-based Fandemonium Books, the new series of books will kick off in June with "Trial By Fire," with a new book expected about every two months thereafter.
Fandemonium has also launched a Web site dedicated to the novels, at StargateNovels.com. Fans can register at the site for e-mail updates straight from the publisher.
"We're huge fans of Stargate SG-1 and have been for years," Fandemonium director Sarah Malcolm told GateWorld. "What we love most about the Stargate universe is the characters who populate it, and above all we want to tell new stories about SG-1. They're the reason we're fans, and like most fans we just want their adventures to continue!"
"Beyond that, Stargate's is an incredibly rich universe," Malcolm said. "It gives us scope to not only play with traditional science fiction concepts, but also to tap into the fascinating ancient mythologies of our own world. And, perhaps because it's set in the here and now, it has a distinctive edge, humour and grittiness that is quite compelling."
Written by Sabine C. Bauer, "Trial By Fire" brings SG-1 to the planet Tyros, where they find an ancient society that is teetering on the brink of war. And when Colonel O'Neill is kidnapped, he soon discovers that his only chance of survival may be to join forces with a ruthless enemy. The novel carries a retail price of £5.99.
While the books will be available worldwide, don't look for them in U.S. bookstores any time soon. They will be available to order online, though, at Fandemonium's own site as well as Amazon.co.uk.
Four novels have been previously published in the U.S. by ROC Publishing (a division of Random House), the last of which was released in early 2001 (story). The books were not well received by many fans, in part because of some factual errors in the details of the Stargate universe.
The new series, the publisher promises, will be written "by authors who truly love and understand the show."
There is no word on the status of the U.S. novel license, or whether Fandemonium's Stargate novels will eventually make their way across the Atlantic.
