What a day! It started with a visit from one of my favriote authors, Graham McNeil, one of the best known authors for The Black Library, the publishing arm of Games Workshop, which make sthe miniature wargame Warhammer 40,000. Graham wrote my favorite novel in the Horus Heresy series, A Thousand Sons.
Now A Thousand Sons was an important book for me as it really helps inform how we write Klingons. In the novel, the Space Marine legion known as The Thousand Sons are not just warriors, but educated scholars. Some are poets and some vintners. They have depth and scope. And this was really important in writing Kharn and our Klingons.
So Graham is a Star Trek and and loves Axanar and may well be writing one of the short stories in The Four Years War Anthology.
After this we had a staff meeting and talked about everything happening and we had an absolute hysterical lunch. We came up with an idea so funny we couldn’t stop laughing. What is it? Well, it is a surprise.
Meanwhile our green scree is finished! And it is truly amazing. Almost 60′ long on one wall and 40′ on another, x 20′ high.
And meanwhile, another Film Festival Award!
Someone complained when we post about our film festival wins. Geez.
Anyway, hope you all have a great weekend!
