Best Laid Plans

As with all things, sometimes when you make a plan, things don’t turn out that way you thought they would.  Full Speed Ahead is no different, and the big multi-season plan has changed pretty significantly as to warrant whole episodes being rewritten wholesale.  In this post, I’ll talk about what happened, and what happening now.

To Triumph and Not to Mourn

As I said in a previous post, the latest Full Speed Ahead story, “To Triumph and Not to Mourn,” was completed. It has now been fully published at Ad Astra!  I wanted to take a few moments to talk about what went into the production, so if you’ve not yet read it (or the immediately …

Ariel Must Die

Not too long ago in the crossover novel The Chains of Error (with Sam Redfeather’s Gibraltar), a number of people were a little surprised to read that Ariel Elannis died in the line of duty while trying to bring the evil Colonel Galmesh to justice.  I wanted to spend a little time talking about what …
