2010, it just doesn’t sound right, does it?
Anyway, over the holidays I’ve been scribbling away on HunterSheets Two. Not gotten as much done as I would have liked. The cover I last posted took a good bit longer than I would have expected. This next book has a lot of new features and characters to the SLA Universe, while the first HunterSheets book mostly covered familiar concepts and such, so writing the new stuff has taken more time than it normally would have.
Still, I’m quite pleased with what’s gone in so far, and I’m hoping the fans will like the end result too.
Looking back over the countless wars of the Conflict Age, I still feel something like regret. It wasn’t our whole intention to eradicate the Conflict Races, it was simply the most effective way to bring in a new era of order…
It was a shame to see so many species vanish before the dawn of the World Of Progress, especially in the case of the Ty-Tesh – the only race I felt we truly betrayed.
But I feel nothing but gladness when I recall the Root Dogs. They were the most dangerous of all the Conflict Aliens because they were constantly adapting. Each defeat only increase the Core Scientists’ knowledge, and ‘The Herd’ grew stronger and deadlier as a result.
Everything we did, however terrible it may seem – it was worth it all to see the Root Dogs die”.

Well, owing to freelance art commissions not arriving by start of the Christmas vacations I’ve basically got two weeks ‘off’ from my regular jobs. It’s a bit strange as this’ll be the first Christmas I’ll have had in last 7 years I’ve not been working to tight deadlines. So, since there’s really nothing to do in Swindon I’m going to take advantage of the break in jobs to work on SLA Industries!
I’ll be tying things up on HunterSheets Issue Two, and Threat Analysis: Soft Company File One.
Check in with MonsterBook over the next few weeks and see some of the development updates!
It took quite awhile to get this drawing and inks together. Well, approximately 4 years :-
