Where are those EVE Online novels?

Over the week-end I finished reading EON issue #008. Again, a great issue from the folks at MMMPublishing full of great articles, interviews, news items and short stories. Speaking of which, of the three stories that were in the issue, one caught my attention more than the others, Man-Eater by Ivan Thomas. It's a creepy Minmatar tale of man vs beast, that kept me reading till the very end at the edge of my seat. I could read tons of these. Which brings me to the subject of this post. A while back we got word that Tony Gonzales was writing an EVE Online, following the success of his two short stories, Ruthless and Theodicy.

Where is it?

And why do we have to wait for Tony's novel? Why not publish all the EVE Chronicles so far released in an anthology? Add to it all the chronicles published in EON, give it a dash of EVE artwork and you've got yourself a great Christmas gift! I sure would love to get my hands on such a piece by years end.

And then, maybe Tony's book would be out. Who knows.

So here's my question to you: would you purchase an EVE Online novel if it were published? And how about a graphic novel? Lore books?

Please let me know by comment!

I'm not normally one to buy books based on the sci-fi I'm into, but in this case I would be interested. I really enjoy the chronicles, and if I were any bit a good writer myself, I'd think about doing some fiction. I think anything EVE fiction related I'd have to purchase.

Tat makes two of us! As for writing some EVE fiction, I have to admit the thought has crossed my mind a few times. If you ever do decide to give it a go, I'm willing to review it all!

Great blog you've got there by the way, interesting topics and great photos.

ack, I feel crappy, I have let the blog slide... I do need to write more again. Thanks for the offer to read, I will definitely let you know if I write anything. Hey, I hung out in the shop@ppl channel for a while but no one was there... :)

I would definitely buy any novels if they were any for sale!
