Petty Gods: Oh BTW

MICHAEL MOORCOCK is on the Petty Gods bandwagon and is working on a divine being for us.

So, you know, if you want your work to appear between the same covers as the creator of Elric, Corum, Jerry Cornelius, etc. then you best submit your work soon, ladies and beardos.

Petty Gods is going to be a benchmark for the OSR.

    2. Mieville e-mail sent. I'm going to send out feelers for Neil Gaiman, Charles R. Saunders, Gene Wolfe and W. H. Pugmire as well.

    3. Cool, Mieville has long known to have been involved with roleplaying games, even before that supplement where he wrote a part.

      Charles R. Saunders has been known to respond to fans, also it would be totally cool to see something from creator of Imaro.

      Coolbeans!

  3. Why not ask Wil Wheaton while you're at it? Sure, he plays 4e, but he's got nerd cred.

  7. This is pretty awesome news. While you're contacting authors, George RR Martin is an old-school gamer, too.

  8. What about Tanehisi Coates at The Atlantic? I know he's talked about d&d being fundamental in his early days and writing. Think he's in one of the new d&d documentaries too.

  9. This is frakkin' excellent.

    Steven Erikson might also be another fella to hit up.

  10. I'm somewhat reticent to presume that I could be in such company. Who the hell am I to be in a book with Elric's creator, fer crissakes?

  12. Jack Vance might be another one to reach out to, while you're going for legends! ;)

    No idea if he played D&D, but imagine!?!?

  13. Vin Diesel has publicly claimed he's a fan. Why not give him a shot?

  14. How about Steven Brust? Vlad Taltos grew out of his D&D group, and he's obviously made up some gods...
