Re: Animal Planet
- Hi Xenophile,
The previews of the program I found facinating although I don't have
cable or satellite. I'll probably have to buy the dvd when it comes
out. I did get a big kick out the two "Walking with..." series.
>>>>I also recommended keithbvaughn's document on Barsoomianevolution to the folks at AH-Evolution.
Thanks for spreading the word. If you want to, you could copy and
send it on over to that group and explain where it comes from (modern
barsoom and back engineering.)
Right now I'm working on a second part of that evolution article in a
roundabout way. It's a panache' of a character from the Barsoom
series who travels up into the ancient continents. I've had to
develop an ecology (sparse as it is) for the remains of the dry land
animals. That's why I was asking for maps of the ancient continents
several months ago.
Right now, I'm a couple of chapters in and will be introducing the
heroine (a mixture of white and yellow races) to the hero (Kar Komak-
The Bowman of Mars) and start the normal grief of romance found in
the other martian books. A chapter or two after that, all hell will
be breaking loose.
I figure it will be several more months before I have it written and
get a rewrite done. After that I will post the results on the board
here. (Before I'm asked, the Hillman's have permission to use it in
their excellent e-zine.)
It's a winter project and now that I'm feeling my health returning, I
should be able to get some words down. Maybe I'll do some art to go
Some odd thoughts,
- Also, I'm still working on Planets of Peril. Right now I have to do
some maps and artwork before I can do the next phase of writing.
