Shared Universe Project

Well the encouragement of the administrator indicated that some of you might be interested in this. I thought some of the would be authors on this list (or established ones) might want to possibly partake or overlook this concept.

Basically, Windstorm Creative (my publishers) is a large fan of universes with multiple authors. They want to create a large and interactive universe of fiction universes that aren't just restricted to one author's vision.

Personally, I'm the only 'origin' Author whose currently set up for having fiction written in his universe right now and you can check out the "Machine Goddess Sourcebook" and "Undying Machine Sourcebook" for information on the world (and hopefully the novels that they're companion pieces to), available at the site or Amazon.

There's also the newly created Yahoogroups for discussion afterwards.

If you're interested in writing in the world, please contact our publisher. Its just getting started and nows the time to make your mark.

Its a good idea. I had envisoned doing something similar in the late 1990s but instead got caught up in gaming worlds.

I might put my name down :)

Best of wishes then.

I think its a good idea honestly.

I just hope the world in whatever form it takes gets enough attention to be worthwhile.
