Sounds good. The section on Valerian will definitely help in understanding SC2.

Oohhh... awesome.

The novel is coming out next Tuesday. One bookstore near me already has 24 copies, so it shouldn't be late (like most novels). This is a big deal, as the next two days are holidays and I want to read I, Mengsk before work starts again

No, sorry, I mean the 30th. (I figured that's how the sentence would come out.)

I can drink to that. Nothing better than reading a new StarCraft book by the fireplace over the holidays.

GM: I knew a bit about the StarCraft universe, but not as much as I needed to. Before I put pen to paper, I read all the existing novels several times over and dug out everything I could find on the net about the plots of the games, the characters and the unit types.

GM: Working out the chronology was a pain at times, as some of the dates I found on the net for certain events conflicted with one another, and trying to figure out things like why Arcturus would join the Marines given his fatherís vehement anti-Confederate stance involved some clever thinking, which all worked to the betterment of the novel.
Good to know. I'm glad that he took the time to sit down and figure this stuff out. I'll see if I can find a few canon errors though.

Quote:
And thereís lots of things in the book that fans wonít know; like the identity of Valerianís motherÖ
She was brought up in the Dark Templar Saga, as she and Valerian were on the run, but yeah, we don't know her identity.

Quote:
but writing dialogue for Little Dot, Arcturusís baby sister was a hoot.
It's too bad that Little Dot ends up getting killed by those 3 ghosts sent to assassinate Angus.

and unless I'm misreading the manual, she also got beheaded. *insert dead baby joke

Quote:
GM: I, Mengsk is actually the second story I put together for a StarCraft novel. I had one all ready to go that was set in the StarCraft universe, but didnít deal with game characters or storylines.
I wonder how many more unreleased novels Blizzard has under their belt....I know Rosenburg is supposed to be working on a sequel to Queen of Blades.

Drat... I've not read any of McNeil's works yet. A former friend bought me a couple Warhammer books based on the Horus heresy a while back, but neither was written by McNeil. They were pretty poorly written, too. Never been a big fan of WH40K. But this interview is encouraging. I look forward to reading this.

Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow
Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
Or is the shaping a culling and excercise in taming?
The road's goal is the dark Origin of Being
But be wary through what thickets it winds.
-Excerpt from the Litany of Residuum;
As Translated by He Who Brings Order

I've read one of McNeill's Warhammer books (not 40K) and I liked it. I'm a big fan of scaven, so I'm biased. I'm thinking of getting his Ultramarines Omnibus, but I'm not a fan of WH 40K Marines (they're not marines, they're supermen!). However, it deals with the tyranids, which I can hardly resist

Some of the WH40K books are good. So far, out of 40K, I've only read Gaunt's Ghosts (they're scouts, not psionic commandos). Good ... but long. I've seen that series described as Sharpe in Space, but I don't agree with that. (Mind you, the Sharpe series is pretty good, if you don't mind them reusing the same plot over and over and over...)
