Dear Stargate SG-1 fan,

The second book is nearly here! Due to be delivered from the printers
on 28
September, Sacrifice Moon is the second installment in the new series
of
Stargate SG-1 novels from Fandemonium Books.

We're very fortunate to have accomplished author, Julie Fortune,
writing for
us, and Sacrifice Moon delivers on all the action, characters and plot
that
you would expect from an excellent double-episode of the TV show. Visit
our
website for a synopsis: www.stargatenovels.com/sacrificemoon.shtml

We've received a mountain of emails from fans eagerly awaiting the
publication of the new book, and I know some of you have been
frustrated at
not being able to find it on Amazon.co.uk for pre-ordering. That's now
been
resolved with our data suppliers, and you can find it by clicking on
this
link:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0954734319/stargasg1nove-21
Order Sacrifice Moon by itself, or save on shipping by ordering it
together
with book 1 in the series, Trial by Fire (if you haven't already done
so!).

As always, you can order it directly from the publishers and save even
more
on shipping and handling charges. Click on www.stargatenovels.com and
go to
the bookshop for secure, online ordering. (Available for pre-ordering

just as a nice little thing to support gateworld, rather than clicking on any of the above links, click on this link (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0954734319/qid=1095761652/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i6_xgl/026-4602724-3233200) and anything you buy after putting sacrifice moon into your shopping cart (so long as you don't browse away from the site) will help gateworld stay so great. :D

Thanks, Jafana! I'm not sure if that link will work, though -- better off to start at http://www.gateworld.net/store/ and click "U.K. Books."

Are these books any good? I read The price You Pay and The Commandment Novel of Stargate and they were ok, but nothing to write home about.

I think it's going to come down to taste. I thougth Trial by Fire was ok. Little off in places, little too british at times, but not bad.

I didn't enjoy it as much as The Weather Outside, which was a fanfic doc wrote years ago, but did read the book....but i'm not settling down to re-read it either.

I've not really read Julie Fortune's stuff. She seems to prefer Daniel in much of what she writes, and that's not much to my taste. I have heard, however, that others enjoy her stuff.

The books by Ashley Mcconnell (the first 3 novels published years ago) really weren't all that good. the writer got zero to no support from mgm (she did her research off the internet and had fans send her tapes). they were also poorly edited (sam was referred to as Amanda Carter in one of them)

Fandemonium at least, seems to be trying

I enjoyed Trial by Fire, I guess it was a little British in parts but mainly because the character (Dr Kelly) was British. At least the phrases being used were accurate. I liked the flow of the story and the interactions between the characters rang true most of the time. You can tell that the author is a fan of the series.

I don't know if I will get the next novel, mainly because of the concerns about it being very Daniel centric. I think I'll wait to see the reviews

If I am going to read a novel of Stargate, I will be reading what I'm writing. Because I have been planning on writing a novel for quite some time.

I even have a story that I think many will love. But I am not going to give any details just yet!

I'm from the US of A so it will not be British whatsoever.
The hardest thing about writing an SG:1 book is capturing the characters correctly. That's my most important goal.

When i say Trial by Fire was british in places, what i meant was, a time or two, Jack was thinking in brit terms. LIke in one place he goes 'plan b is what you do when plan a goes pear shaped'

as a person from the US and Midwest (which is jack's background), we don't use 'pear shaped' to describe anything other than, well a pear :)

I loved Dr kelly, she was a trip, it was just the occasional britism and info dump here and there that bogged it down for me

the latest e-mail

Dear Stargate SG-1 fan,

Just two days until the second in the new series of Stargate SG-1
novels is
published. Fan reaction has been, well, fantastic. Thanks to everyone
who
has pre-ordered Sacrifice Moon (we've even had a few people catching up
on
book one, Trial by Fire, which is good to see).

Sacrifice Moon, by Julie Fortune, harks back to season one, following
the
beloved characters on their very first mission as a team. As the blurb
on
the back of the book jacket says:

"The Goddess hunts...
Just four days after Major Kawalsky’s death, Colonel Jack O’Neill leads
the
newly commissioned SG-1 on their first mission through the Stargate.
Their
destination is Chalcis, a peaceful society at the heart of the Helos
Confederacy of planets. But Chalcis harbors a dark secret, one that
pitches
SG-1 into a world of bloody chaos, betrayal and madness. Battling to
escape
the living nightmare, Dr Daniel Jackson and Captain Samantha Carter
soon
begin to realize that more than their lives are at stake. They are
fighting
for their very souls. But while O’Neill and Teal’c struggle to keep the
team
together, Daniel is hatching a desperate plan that will test SG-1’s
fledgling bonds of trust and friendship to the limit..."

Available for pre-order from our website now, price £5.99(GBP) plus

Could someone tell me how much the book is in American dollars, please? I would like to how much they are charging me in dollars before I order something.

Skydiver

I got book 1 through a friend of mine who charged me 14, but if you order through the amazons, then the postage is actually as much as or more than the book, making the total order over 10 us, which makes it close to 20 us i believe.

Maybe someone who bought book 1 through amazon can answer your question more accurately

I'm not sure on the exchange rate, especially since it changes day to day but i THINK 1 british pound is 60-70 us cents

it's possible that you can call your local bank and they might know what the rate is

Have read the first chapter last night and laughed at the characterisation. So far thoroughly enjoying it and can't wait to get back to it tonight.

You're going for the novel too, eh? Well, make room for me cuz I'm trying as well! I guess there might be a USA publisher in the works, so it won't be as hard to appeal to the British pallet. I have yet to getmy hands on any of the UK published books, but "The Price You Pay" is great -- I sort of read it in one sitting... yes, I have no life -- or at least I have yet to find one on the shelves at the local Walmart...

You're right about capturing the characters -- it's hard to try and do it for an early season too -- as I'm trying to do. Best of luck!

Half way through Sacrifice Moon and am still really enjoying it. Fair amount of Jack whumping but looking forward to the whumping coming up.

Finished it (that's my problem read too fast when's the next one out?). Will re-read at Halloween when I feel it will really spook me out. Very good read, created quite an atmosphere about the planet visited. Enough whumping all round to keep everyone happy and great team interaction. I wasn't too sure I was happy with the author trying to come to terms with why we understand everyone, I am quite happy to think it is one of those production things that can't be explained in 40 minutes. Anyhow I am very happy with the two books that have come out so far, it was certainly a good idea to go to the fans for some good fiction, just hope they come on thick and fast.

Just started reading my copy and so far it's
great, funny in places and i feel as if i'm
being taken back in time and looking in at
when they first came together as a team.

At the back of the book is the intro to the
next book called "A Matter of Honor by
Sally Malcolm.
Is she a well known fic writer?

whats the intro like? a quick gist of it?

whats the intro like? a quick gist of it?

It looks like a creepy story and the part i've
read deals with Jack waiting for the rest of
SG1 and Jack feels spooked with thoughts going
through his mind like this place gives me the
creeps and the whole place stank of decay and
something worse.

It sounds like a good read as well:)

I've read and adored every fanfic that Julie Fortune has written (you can find them posted online) as well as all of her pro novels (some under the alias Roxanne Longstreet, or Roxanne Conrad etc. etc.) and loved them all. A great choice for an SG-1 novelist!
