This weekend is the Jet City Comic Show in Tacoma, Washington, and Foreworld will be there. Neal Stephenson and Mark Teppo will be participating on a panel at 12:00 PM where they’ll be doing a Q & A with Alex Carr, the Senior Editorial Lead at Jet City Comics (Amazon Publishing’s comic book arm). What they’re going to show off is the Graphic SideQuests line of Foreworld stories. Symposium is the first, but there are three others coming soon. Drop by and get an exclusive look at some of the art for The Dead God, Cimarronin, and Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons.
We have a forum. It’s been pretty quiet, and I’ve been waiting until Katabasis was turned in before posting the forum URL (which is, as you can probably guess: www.foreworld.com/forum). Now that the book has been sent to production, there’s no time like now to open the doors, especially since the mongoliad.com site has been shut down. There’s also a link in the menu bar so that you can find it readily in the future.
During the previous iteration of our grand transmedia adventure, we had a wiki and we had an open policy about fan fiction. We’d like to see that continue. Behind the scenes, we’re working on getting the wiki data from the previous site cleaned up and we’ll present a new wiki interface soon. As to fan fiction, well, there is this new initiative called Kindle Worlds . . .
