I've been very inattentive of late and I apologize for neglecting you all. I'm sure you know what that pesky real life is like!
We've talked in the past of adding a new top-level story to the site, and even had a few candidate first episodes written. It's time to do something about that, and I'd like to get all your input on an idea.
I've long been a fan of Jack Chalker's Well World books. Sure they're cheesy in places, self-inconsistent and patchy, but for a transformation fan it's hard not to have a soft spot for them, and with Jack sadly having left us there will be no more. So I was thinking maybe we could have a go at fixing that!
What I'm suggesting is a top-level story on FB which is a gateway to stories set in the Well World universe. I'd also provide a few starter episodes (and solicit input from you all for starter episodes too) to kick off some threads - these can be a mixture of stuff that's canon from the books and stuff that takes the themes of the books and takes them in different directions.
I'm aware that those of you familiar with the books are likely to be more interested in this than those who have not read them, and I don't mean this to be an exercise in excluding people. There's no reason why everyone couldn't contribute. Perhaps we'll even generate some discussions in the forum about what may or may not be appropriate! Maybe someone could even write a "Well World Primer" :)
So, what do you think? this will only work if there are a decent group of writers will to contribute, so I'm keen to hear your feedback, and hopefully enthusiasm!
