Wraith

A reader asks, "I read on Gateworld that there might be a Wraith book. Is that true? Are you doing a book about the Wraith?"

It's true that we've talked about it with Sally Malcolm at Fandemonium. It's not a done deal, and there is no approval yet for the idea from MGM. But yes, it's possible.

We've talked about a book tentatively called A Blade of Atlantis, beginning a few years in the future after the end of the Legacy series, and involving a time travel plot back to season one of SGA and other points. And yes, the book would be mostly about the Wraith.

I hope it works out too.

The Avengers is still at MGM and we're still waiting. As soon as we get final edits from them, we're good to go.

Ummm... probably not! But there will be some other interesting things!

This would be so cool! :D It'll certainly be interesting to see things from the Wraith perspective.

Although, I've been wondering something. Depending on how well the rest of the Legacy novels do, and the way Legacy ends, is there potential for maybe a "7th season" of novels?

It would be a lot of fun!

Yes, it's possible that there will be a "season seven." It depends on how Legacy sells, and of course on MGM. It also depends on the other work that Melissa, Amy and I have. The Stargate books are very time consuming, and depending on other contracts I may not be able to commit to another six books! That's a good solid two years of my time. One book or two is more likely, though it all depends at this point.

Hey I know we'll all be happy as long as novels keep being put out! :D I just know it'd be really neat to keep going forward with the "seasons." I know I'm not the only one who needs new stories about our favorite Milky Way and Atlantis teams. ;)

A '7th season' would be fun - to read or to write.
A time-travelling Wraith? 'A Blade of Atlantis'?
To quote George Takei: Oh my!
And to quote me: awesomeness on a stick!
I hope that one gets the go-ahead from MGM. I love when stories get to weave together with other stories. Mmmm, tasty.

It would be fun -- I hope we get to do the Wraith book.

No, not the time traveling Wraith! But definitely time travelers!

Ah, I see - sorry, misinterpreted your post.
But still, much awesomeness. *whispers* Don't need another writer, do you?

Time travel with Wraith rather than time travelling Wraith. Sorry to be confusing!

If you're interested in writing for the Stargate series, the thing to do is to submit a proposal to Sally Malcolm at Fandemonium. We don't pick the writers -- she does. So that's the way to do it!

So it is ;)
Thanks, I'll do that. Got to get me a piece of that chewy 7th season action!
Oh, meant to ask on the 'ask a question' thread, but forgot:
[slight Legacy spoiler]
whose idea was the Wraith translation of the human names - She Who Is A Strong Place for Weir, and She Who Carries Many Things for Carter? Not to mention Hairy for Woolsey (LMAO). C'mon, own up! Actually thought it worked really well to convey the language gap, and the two names express the characters of the two women rather well.

Those particular names were mine! :)

[more potential Legacy spoilers]
Which reminds me... was it intentional that the translation of Sheppard's name (Guide) is the same as 'Todd's' name?
jo_graham
Mar. 24th, 2012 12:40 pm (UTC)
Yes, that was intentional too. And also mine! :)
