  1. Fellow LucasArts fanatics, The fact that our beloved game publisher is now defunct has not stopped various factions from releasing new, updated versions of the most popular titles in their library of illustrious classics: The Secret of Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, and Grim Fandango. Even Sam & Max was resurrected in TellTale's episodic series which ran for 3 critically-acclaimed seasons. The only classic title left gathering dust on the shelves of the Lucas archive is the unforgettable quest of a certain archaeologist for the lost city of Atlantis. Inspired
  2. That was one in a series of posters signed by artist Dave Dorman which were available in movie magazines back in the 1990's. I got the Indiana Jones Thunder in the Orient print in 1994, for only $50. I really wish they made a poster of the FOA graphic novel artwork:
  3. Thanks. They're my favorite (and only) Indy props. I recently re-painted the Nur-Ab-Sal pendant to give it a more ancient, weathered look:
  4. Thanks for the great review! I really appreciate it! If you'd like to discuss my FOA novel (questions, etc.), feel free to ask! :-)

     

    All the best,

  5. Wow, thank you very much for the great review! I'm always pleased to hear that people enjoy my story. I can't believe it's been a year since Fate of Atlantis premiered. How time flies! Since then, it has received unanimously positive reviews, which is gratifying for an amateur writer. For the past year and a half, I've been developing the storyline for an exciting new (and completely original) Indy adventure which I will soon commence writing. However, this will be my last Indiana Jones novel, due to the difficulty in finding a suitable quest and/or MacGuffin worthy of our favorite hero. Pleas
  6. Coolness! I'd love to see some lost FOA design artwork & animation!
  7. Biggest bummer of the year? The shameless Disney~LFL money-grab merger solely responsible for the unnecessary new SW trilogy, the demise of LucasArts, and the inevitable Indy reboot movies certain to follow. This is the worst possible scenario ever, and I want absolutely no part of it.
  8. dj jack, thank you very, very much for the compliments! I'm glad you enjoyed the story. It was fun and very challenging to adapt, given the scope of the game, but I'm satisfied with the result. It's literally as good as I can possibly make it. The places where I diverged from the original storyline were done by necessity, either to expand on the locations or deepen the narrative, as any worthwhile novelization should. Also, it was fun for me—as both an Indy fan and a writer—to poke around in some of those unseen corners and guess what might be there! Hopefully my story will give people a fresh appreciation for the game, and enhance the Fate of Atlantis experience.

  10. Laserschwert can supply you with high-res graphics, since he re-rendered them for the ePub format. Just send him a PM.
  11. Here's a little bonus material, just for fun! Synchronicity, according to Rob & Trish MacGregor in The 7 Secrets of Synchronicity, is the coming together of inner and outer events in a way that is meaningful to the observer and which can’t be explained by cause and effect. Or: meaningful coincidence. The term was coined by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, who first wrote about it in 1949, in his introduction to Richard Wilhelm’s edition of the I Ching. It’s a fascinating phenomenon that can provide guidance, confirmation, warning, and infuses life with a sense of wonder and mystery. It c
  12. Do you want it good or do you want it fast? That’s the quote I often cited whenever I thought of the people waiting for the completion of this story over the years. For those patient individuals in the former category, I promise it was worth the wait. For everyone in the latter, I offer the proverb that art cannot be rushed, and hope that they agree. In any case, the day has finally arrived! But first, let’s have a round of applause to Laserschwert and Norman Eschenfelder for their excellent work in adapting the novel for digital distribution. They went above and beyond the call of
  13. Honestly, I don't have the time nor resources to make print copies on demand, which is why the novel will also be available in PDF format, so it can be printed from anyone's home computer if they want a physical copy of the book. But I would think that most people would opt for the free downloadable ePub version since e-books are all the rage.
  14. The novel is currently being formatted into ePub and PDF versions for instant download, plus I wanted to release it on the anniversary of when I began the project: June 15th. Just hang in there awhile longer, I promise it'll be worth it!
