sounds different than usual. But its sounds like a real book, which usually only take place from one perspective, or from an outside narrator type. So, I think I might order this one! Thanks for the review!

Valhalla was pretty good. Barque of Heaven however was great! I loved the story line. I would recomend both.

@Christian – I’m not much of a fan of the Fandemonium books, I find them very amateurish and I suspect most are just fanfiction adapted from some shipper fansite, most of the main perpetrators are well known Sam/Jack ship fanficcers. That said, Barque of Heaven was definitely one of the better ones – much more polished and professional, like an episode or even a feature film could have been of they’d had the budget. It’s the only one by that author sadly but certainly a cracking read.

I just started reading the Fandemonium books on Kindle. I had considered myself too much of a reading snob to do that til recently. To my surprise, I’m finding them rather entertaining (so far just the SGA books). The quality varies quite a bit among the authors, but so far they have all proved to be worth a shot. It is pretty much satisfying my fix for Stargate now that the series are at an end. The trouble is, at the rate I’m going, I’ll need to start pacing myself. Hopefully, the market will be sufficient for more entries in… Read more »

I have read several of the books – SG1’s Roswell and Atlantis’s Exogenesis are really good – the former could have been a DVD movie (better than CONT for the time travel stuff) the latter easily a good two parter in Atlantis’s second season. That’s how good the storylines and characterisation are. Not all of them are great, but that’s true of the episodes of the series too. Personal taste I guess. Re Visual media – good luck. After the recent news, even if there is new visual Stargate in the future, chances are it will not feature the characters… Read more »

– good on you! I recognize that – I too considered myself a reading snob an sneaked into bookshops to get my fix of Star Trek books… I will start reading Stargate books too – I consider these kind of books like a good Star Trek/Stargate episode. You already have the characters in your mind which is a plus so in that sense these books are a bit different from other (scifi) books… Oh dear, I’m talking like a book snob again… :)

Im about half way through reading this book. As far as a book goes its pretty good. Nothing to really mention home about, the story is kind of generic but overall the writing is good. It has the Stargate feel to it!!! I can picture an episode (more like movie) as I read it, and the characters are right on point. I miss Jonas Quin too, and they nail is character in this book. I have only read 2 SG1 books… This one is entertaining, overall I would say its a good read. And it is an easy read. Its… Read more »

Now that I really think about it.. It must be after Anubis comes to Langara, because that was in the beginning of season 7, and Langara knows about the Stargate. Not just the Kelownians. Its been a while since I watched season 7, just trying to figure out the Time line. Any help would be much appreciated :)

I agree with the article about the part about Jack O’Neill, I wish he was more involved… Just cause he is and will always be my favorite character!!!! RDA ROCKS!!! <3 Stargate!!!

Barque and Valhalla are both excellent SG1 novels.
Some of the Atlantis novels are decent, but the titles are generic enough for most of them that I get confused about which is which.

Any news on possible SGU novels? The Air novelization was decent, though since that was based on a script, it might not be a good barometer for how Fandemonium would handle the series.
