I went over the script one last time, then handed in after lunch. Finally, I’m done. Until, of course, I get the notes and have to begin the rewrite. Alex Levine, who went over the script before distributing it, had some thoughts. He found the Shen imbroglio too subtle (I thought it might be). He bumped on the end of Act IV and its resolution (I figured some would). He felt the reveal needed to be moved up and the big decision needed more of a build (Hey, man. Don’t come to me with problems. Come to me with solutions.). I expect feedback from everyone else in the not too distant future. Hopefully before we all go our separate ways this Friday. The rest of the gang is understandably busy. Still, we did find time to gather and discuss Martin’s script (a very special Stargate Atlantis). The highpoint of the afternoon’s progress was, of course, the place-holder title we came up with: Snow Globe. Ah, the satisfaction of another day’s work well done.
I was rewarded with a package from Atlantis fan and artist Helene Labrie (aka FargateOne) who, somehow, correctly predicted I would be completing work on Remnants today and perfectly timed delivery of various chocolates (including a very-intriguing/alarming dark chocolate and Brittany seaweed) and a booklet containing an overview of some of Helene’s impressive sculptures.

Hey, just checked the sidebar and I see that next month’s Book of the Month Club discussions fast approach. A gentle reminder that we’ll have not one, not two, but all three authors swinging by to discuss their work and field your questions:
Kage Baker is coming by the week of June 30th to discuss In the Garden of Iden.
K.J. Bishop is coming by the week of July 7th to discuss The Etched City.
Jennifer Pelland is coming by the week of July 14th to discuss Unwelcome Bodies.
I’m hoping that we can equal this past month’s great reader response to John Abercrombie’s The Blade Itself and John Scalzi’s The Android’s Dream. Oh – and I’ll be picking a couple of random winners from the recent discussions in the days to come.
And speaking of picking and the BOTMC, I suppose now is a good time to start thinking ahead to August’s selections. I have a couple of titles in mind, but would love to hear any recommendations you all might have.
