False Dawn?

Red Sea denizen (Andrew Wright, 2014)
I hadn't seen him in two years. He'd long since left L.A., teaching, any sort of steady job, steady income, steady life. He was in Aspen, Dakar, Bangkok. Once in a while I got a dirt-smeared postcard from out of the amazing pipeline, exotic stamps, a mad trembling hasty scrawl of which the only legible term was "dude." (Boyle, 1994)

It's been a while. When I first moved from Bangkok to Saudi Arabia, I thought that the lack of a two hour daily commute to work might free up some time for other endeavors, such as this blog. However, the flotsam of life has tossed up plenty of alternative distractions to prevent this. Still, there is hope. In the next post I hope to talk about Beyond the Pit, which has basically taken two years to finish, and how happy I am to finally see it in print!

  1. Welcome back to the blogosphere! And well done on BTP!

  2. Can't wait to hear about it Andy! I know the feeling - as life goes on work and children take up more and more of my time, squeezing out FF and related frivolities. I do my best to keep things going, but it doesn't always happen when I want it to (I'm hoping to get a blog post done this weekend myself, but we'll see...).

  3. Hi, my name is Christian. I'm trying to get in contact with someone from the Fabled Lands yahoo group. I recently discovered this amazing game and I'm very interested in learning more about the world. The Yahoo group does not seem to be very active anymore, but I would still like to see some of the old discussions and resources on there (I'm particularly interested on how fans went about designing Book 7). If you can point me in the right direction or know someone who can approve my membership, I would really appreciate it. My e-mail is Thanks!
