Traveller Fiction
 
Would you be interested in Traveller fiction?

There's so much good SF to choose from that I doubt I would read a story solely because it's Traveller-themed. I voted yes on short stories, however, just because I really enjoy good space-opera type short stories, and if it happens to have a Traveller vibe, so much the better.

Soit'nlee! A "Free Trader Beowulf" series would be a good place to start, especially if the series follows the freighter through all of its changes of ownership.

I would, if I had money to pay for it with.

One novel I read was very dissapointing. I'd have risked less sanity reading the Necronomicon. But I believe it can be done.

IKWYM. As you say, though, it can be done.

If someone would do the Annic Nova backstory I would probably celebrate for a week.

One problem would be choosing the setting; Classic, Rebellion, Post Virus? As far as the Annic Nova goes, I always thought it was a Droyne constructed ship (small seats and vacc suit, though I don't recall the suits as having room for wings as did the Shimmer Suits from Secrets of the Ancients).

Classic might sell better, but any era is possible.

Only if it would be written by Ken Bearden. No, seriously, I welcome all efforts at Traveller fiction. I would have hoped that I could see more Concordant fiction from Swycaffer but he has gone awfully quiet. I found MJD novel rather dense but not unreadable...so we need more inspired fiction. Similarly, Dale Kemper's Force of Destiny or the one who did Long Way Home were rather dense...but sure gamer fiction (and I do not say that to denegrate) is great...if Traveller could have the likes of Hickman & Weiss writing for it...and spawn a huge Imperium of Traveller-like writing...I would be happy.
