A New SG-1 Book – Once More Unto the Breach!

hammondannounceThanks to MGM and Fandemonium, I’ve been given the green light to write what I hope to be the first of many SG-1 novels set post-series — a sort of “Hammond Chronicles” involving the team’s past and current members as well as the USS George Hammond.  “The Enemy of My Enemy” “Many & the Few” takes place right after the events of the Stargate Universe pilot, “Air,” — events that in Colonel Samantha Carter’s mind have marred her new command of the Hammond.  Determined to uncover the mole responsible for disclosing Icarus Base’s location, Sam and Homeworld Command are soon faced with bigger threats from enemies both old and new.

As well as reuniting with presumed lost friends.

The whole gaggle of characters play a role in Enemy Many including Jack O’Neill, Daniel Jackson, Teal’c, Cam Mitchell, Vala, Landry, as well as Siler (of course!), Bra’tac, Walter, Col. Dixon (a personal favorite), and the Hammond crew.

On the Jack/Sam front… Without giving anything away, let me share a bit of my motive for a key subplot in Enemy Many: I’m a fan of the Stargate Atlantis Legacy books, too, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that it frustrated me that these two much loved characters were ‘out’ as a couple in that book series, but we’ve never seen how that came to be.

Suffice it to say, SG-1: Many & the Few The Enemy of My Enemy intends to explore what happened.  It’ll require a delicate hand, but thanks to my editor, Sally Malcolm, and MGM, I’ve been given a “God Speed” for the journey.  Trust me, it’s going to be a bumpy ride for everyone.  Otherwise, where would be the fun?

And I promise — Story first, always. There’s a boatload of twists and turns that should keep fans of every ilk happy. That’s what I love so very much about this franchise.  The opportunities to explore character and story are endless.

If all goes well, additional “Hammond Chronicles” books will be greenlit including a slew of stories I’ve co-developed with Keith DeCandido and David Read.
