An Improbable Journey

Yesterday concluded The Fast and the Dead, my first take on zombies. It was a lot of fun, I enjoyed writing it, and I think I’m going to enjoy editing it, but now it’s time for something different. I’m pulling the pieces of my next story together.

I have a concept, a character in mind, and a setting. Tomorrow begins the actual writing. So far I’m thinking of something along the lines of Robert Lynn Asprin’s Myth series, only science fiction. Not quite like the Phule’s Company stuff he also did though. The first thing that popped into my head was Space Quest. I’ve always been a huge fan of the old Sierra/Lucasarts adventure games, and Space Quest was such a favorite that I forgave it for not having been able to run some of the later games due to bugs.

I should dust some of those off and replay them…
