For this week’s Fan Spotlight we’ll be highlighting a few of our favorite wordsmiths out there. That’s right, this week’s spotlight is on Fan Fiction and we’ll be showing off a more dastardly side of the verse. So pull out your pirate hats, sing a hearty sea shanty, and let’s get started.
First up we have a recent entry from Rufus Sutuul called The Blackjack Gang. Rufus tells the story of a brother and sister that have joined a gang with cards of the deck carved on their helmets. While the story is short, it’s filled with excitement and I can’t wait for the next entry.
Next, Nova weaves a tale about a ragtag group of mercenaries hired to take down a Bengal carrier called The SuperNova Legacy. Needless to say, things don’t go quite as planned and leads to a perilous escape, and that’s just the first part of the tale! Though it was a year in the making, Nova has finally come out with part 2 and is worth the read.
Lastly we visit Blood-Red who has taken a more scholastic approach to his fiction. In his piece Bill Ladyman and Dr. Lee Chiang discuss the ecological impact our moon had on Earth and the UEE. This is a fun & different approach to our Fan Fiction and we enjoy it.
Thank you to everybody who writes fiction for our ‘verse. It’s always amazing to see what everybody comes up with. If you have a favorite piece that we haven’t talked about, let us know below. Thanks and we’ll see you next week!
