Sometimes, things work out

I was struggling for a place name as I wrote Chapter 9. I left it blank in the first draft with just a ______________ to indicate where the name would go. Then, it just hit me, I can name the place 'Miranda,' which will nicely tie the Shakespearean reference ('The Tempest') to the Firefly reference.

It has come to this

When I started writing these things, I had no idea I would ever use the phrase 'Anal Annihilator' in any of these books, let alone nine times in a single chapter. But, there it is.

Re: Stargate-Universe

So, a handful of human survivors of a massive attack find themselves depending on a busted-up spaceship in a fight for survival. There are tensions between military and civilian personnel, there's a brilliant scientist who can't be trusted, and its all filmed in a stark and gritty style. Gee, where have I seen this before?

Book 10: Chapter One

I've been thinking of posting Chapter One of Book 10 as a teaser. Any interest?
