This is... interesting. Has anyone sampled FFG's original fiction?

Oh fuck yes, there are FINALLY commercial opportunities for my Ticket to Ride fanfic to reach a bigger audience.

There have been two waves of fiction from Fantasy Flight. Maybe five or so years ago they were doing paperback novels for Arkham Horror, Android and Tannhäuser(?). Now they’re doing hardback novellas with color inserts for Arkham, L5R and Android (maybe less so now after losing Netrunner) and packaging them with alt art cards.

Quality is variable. I prefer the Arkham novels as they had big ensembles and felt more like the game. The novellas are pretty. Norman Withers’ is probably the best as he actually has an arc in it.

Interesting that Marc Gascoigne is connected to it. He used to be heavily involved in Games Workshop and Fighting Fantasy back in the day. I think he used to head Black Industries too.

"Call me Red. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me in the sea, I thought I would ride about a little and see the railed part of the United States (plus expansion maps, of course). It is a way I have of accumulating points and completing routes."

Speaking personally, I enjoyed the hell outta your BangTrain Trilogy, as it is rare to find such rich characterization in my preferred segment of adult fanfic. I mean, having Lex Steele as the conductor of "The BBC Express" near the end of Volume 2 ("From Nashville To Raleigh") was nothing short of inspiring.
