I'd just like to point out that game fiction is currently in a decline.
returns from Random House are what almost did in TSR. Their once
novel line is in decline, a trend seen in other game related fiction. On
other hand, I had considered writing some FT fiction myself. Instead,
been concentrating on my own stuff (including an alternate WWII history
novel which I've put on hiatus to finish a technical writing contract).
