It’s been pretty heartening to have folks ask me about the further adventures of Thomas Weatherby, Shaila Jain and the rest of the Daedalus trilogy crew — there are fans, and they like the stories. This is truly awesome and humbling.
And while one never says never, I do feel that the story that wrapped up in The Venusian Gambit was a good end-point, which is why we announced last week that I’ve been working on a new series: MAJESTIC-12.
That doesn’t mean I won’t miss Weatherby and Shaila, though.
I had the privilege of posting at Locus Magazine’s Roundtable blog today about what it’s like to wrap one series and start another. It’s from a very writer-centric point of view, as you can imagine, and to my surprise, it reads a bit more wistful than I thought.
But that said, I’m excited about the first book in the MAJESTIC-12 series, MJ-12: Inception, which I handed in to my editors on Friday. (Woot!) And the Locus post drops a few more details on that series, so surf on over and check it out.
