Groombridge Log - Completed!

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

Groombridge Log - Completed!

Post by Scott Irving » Tue Feb 25, 2014 11:58 pm

Greeting fellow travelers of the interwebs,

Tiberian has completed his Novelization of the Star Control II story, Groombridge Log.
EDIT: now one part!

http://koti.mbnet.fi/tibe9mm/Groombridge_Log.pdf

Once you read it, and perhaps you have already, head over to the forums to converse about it. Completing a project is a pretty big deal around these parts as many of you know. :mrgreen:

Paul Reiche said that I am free to print out copies for my personal use, but if I'm planning on making money with it, we need to talk.

That's pretty much what I had in mind myself.

I've just finished reading this, and I have to say I think it's very well written. Will you be working on a continuation of the story? If so you have a fan right here waiting for the next chapter!

I suppose I need to don my mask of Enjoyment Of Canonical Fan-Fiction, as soon as my Ultron tells me which one it is.
The Ultron tells me I should wear my Mask of Toys for Bob Appreciation when playing Star Control 2.

I appreciate your support. I hope that I can write the story all the way to the end, but I haven't started the next book yet.

To me it feels like Paul needs a new Lamborghini because he's sick of his current one's color ;).

As far as I know, this is needed to prevent someone else from using Paul's copyrighted anything in the future. He can't pick and chose to defend his copy rights on specific instances only, while letting other situations slide.

That's not true, this is about the money. Permission was needed anyway, whether groombridge log is sold or being made available freely.

That has always been Paul's position about derivative works, I don't see why this instance would be different. UQM was made under the same stipulations.

Besides, I think it's a bit much to expect to be able to profit off of someone else's original creations without giving them some kind of cut. It doesn't matter how successful he has been in the intervening years.

Well, you can put me on the funding list if you ever get printed copies done Tiberian.

Paul reiche didn't pay off Gene Roddenberry and Glen Larson for his inspiration for various SC2 themes...
