I´d dime in also if there was any chance of seeing the TSW triology completed.

Sadly i guess even if all of us who enjoyed TSW would paypal ~60$ (which is what I´d have invested in the paperbacks) it wouldn´t reach the amount he could have cashed from a dead tree publication.


I'd pay, too...

The critical thing is time, not money (although the financial loss from the destruction of TSW really hurt). It takes about three times as long to do a TSW story as an equivalent TBO story and, I'd rather spend the time doing TBO.

Maybe you should send in the SEALs... Hang on, I'm getting TBO, TIPOTS and OTL mixed up.

I would send money as well, for what its worth.
(Probably not very much)

OTL? Which story is that? I don't remember reading it...

TSW was good however TBOverse stories are, frankly, something better alltogether. Much better. With TBO Stuart you seem to be in a confort zone compared to the intellectual gymnastics that TSW required.

Too many morons on SDN unfortunately.

I do love both. I think where I stand, Stuart, is that I'd rather see the still in-progress TBO stories done more than I would TSW III, but I'd rather see TSW III than any new TBO stories (with the exception of Mighty Endeavour).

I've read everything in both universes. Frankly, as entertaining as TSW is, I'd much rather read TBO stories and add the dead tree editions to my collection.

Perhaps as a compromise, when Stuart is bored or needs a break from TBO, TSW shorts could be used? :idea: :?:
