So by now, you may have heard the news:
I am writing a SPIRIT OF THE CENTURY novel for Evil Hat games.
If it works out, I might be writing three of them, actually.
The first begins with –
All I’m saying is:
Get your head around that.
And once you have your head around it, I’ve some questions to ask you.
First up: if you’re a fan of the old pulps — and a fan of crazy adventure and pulp heroes and weird science and all that good stuff — then I gotta ask, what would you hope to see in a new pulp novel?
Second, if you’re a fan of SPIRIT OF THE CENTURY, what defines that game to you? What are the essential ingredients to any SotC adventure — both the adventure that unfolds with dice at your game table and the adventure that might unfold in, say, a novel? I’ve got a synopsis of the novel written down, but thus far I’ve got a lot of uncharted spaces. Which is why I’m here, looking to you to distill down what you feel — as a fan of the game — best embodies the awesomeness that is SPIRIT OF THE CENUTURY.
I’ll hang up and wait for your answer.
