Peter David, a fiction writer with a huge following for his novels set in the Star Trek universe, has just announced he’s working on an official Battlestar Galactica novel:
So it’s definite, I’ll be doing a “Battlestar Galactica” novel (I say it’s definite because I got the contract in the mail.)
I figure I must be on the right beam because two of the story elements I wanted to explore were nixed by the BG folks on the basis that it’s stuff they’re planning to explore in season 3.
Judging from the Wikipedia entry on Peter David, BSG fans have a lot to be excited about! David has written scores of Star Trek novels, two episodes of Babylon 5, an episode of Crusade, and long runs of the Spider Man and Incredible Hulk comics. And that’s just the more well-known stuff.
(And, yes, the book cover is a fake. Just having a little fun with this story.)
UPDATE: there’s also a miniseries novelization written by Jeffrey Carver that’s planned for release in hard cover form on Dec 27, 2005. A paperback version will follow in Feb 2006.
