Star Trek Continues!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G-ziTBAkbQ One of my passions is Star Trek, original series (1966-1969) and Next Generation (1987-1993). Many fanfictions came out during the recent years thanks to increasingly accessible technical progress. Here is one in link which I find particularly remarkable. It’s a sequel of the episode “Who Mourns For Adonais” (second season, second episode), in which the crew of Enterprise meets the Greek God Appolo. - The original actor who played Apollo in 1967 takes again his role with...

First sale!

Here it is, first sale for the english version, "Who Is Sister Love?". I hope you unknown first reader will enjoy it. On one side it's the exact translation of "Mais Qui Est Donc Sister Love ?", french version. But on another side it's much more complicated than that. Chicken and eggs... The idea of the Sister Love story is fairly old now, and its first form was a screenplay written in english. Why in english? Because 1) all examples of script I had read were in english and 2) if the script interested somebody (yeah I am quite a... [Lire la suite]

Journeys to Mars!

As my pseudonym will reveal to the connoisseurs, my favorite author is Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950). I was seventeen when I discovered this writer. Of course I already knew Tarzan, his most famous creation, but he wasn’t among the characters I preferred. He seemed very shallow compared to others. As a roleplaying fan I had bought the Stormbringer box, based upon the novels of Michael Moorcock which featured Elric the Necromancer. The « Epées et Dragons » collection published in paperback another Moorcock’s novel trilogy, the... [Lire la suite]

Birth of a passion

My passion for superheroes was undoubtedly born towards the end of the Seventies. I already knew some characters like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four thanks to the cartoons, but those were drowned in the middle of many other cartoons, so they didn’t necessarily stand out. We were in full discovery of Japanimation, with Goldorak (Great Mazinger) at the top of the line, and American cartoons seemed quite insipid in comparison! One of my classmates and neighbor invited me one day to play at his place. He had a... [Lire la suite]

First steps!

Here it is, my first message as an author. Well, if I deserves this title, that is. It will be yours, dear reader, to determine. I published lately two novelettes on the Amazon's Kindle platform: - Mais Qui Est Donc Sister Love ? - Who is Sister Love?, which is the english translation of the previous novel That’s a big emotion for me, since I confront myself for the first time to other people's judgments. Especially since I have just seen that the first sale of the French version had been made... [Lire la suite]
