O Lucky Man

by wjw on December 9, 2007

So I got some really good news the other day.

Really, really, really good news.

Except I can’t tell you all what the news is, because things aren’t precisely nailed down yet.

But it’s good news.

Reely reely good goody good reely good goody reely good news.

If I had time, I’d open a bottle of champagne, but I don’t.

Well, that’s really really really awesome, whatever it is, and now I wanna know reely reely reely bad. :>p

David December 10, 2007 at 12:44 am

I betcha it involves a book or books. Reely!

Tarl Neustaedter December 10, 2007 at 3:50 am

With any luck this means he got a contract for three more books in the “Dread Empire” series…

Ted December 10, 2007 at 6:17 am

Congratulations, whatever it is!

Synova December 10, 2007 at 6:38 am


I’m all excited for you even without a clue what it is.

InsightStraight December 10, 2007 at 6:57 am

Ah! This must mean the commission for admiral has come through! Congratulations, sir. Have you chosen your flagship yet?

Mathew December 10, 2007 at 7:02 am

I’m STILL holding out for a sequel to the City on Fire series…or another short fiction book ( more Broadway Jonnie?)…
But I’ll take more Dread Empire books…
or Any WJW books…

Mathew December 10, 2007 at 7:03 am

waitaminute….can I extrapolate “reel” from “relly”? Like a movie deal?

Bonnie Freeman December 10, 2007 at 1:27 pm

I’d love it if it was more of the “Dread Empire.” But whooo-hooo all the same!

Paul W December 10, 2007 at 4:59 pm

Congratulations in Advance!

More Dread Empire would be welcome, although I think part of WJW’s strength is his diversity.

Dread Empire is not Metropolitan/City on Fire and not (I presume) the forthcoming Implied Spaces.

Just started “The New Space Opera”, which I bought in part because WJW has a story in it.

Rebecca S. December 10, 2007 at 5:20 pm

Congratulations! Reely reely. Whatever it is. (I’m betting movie or more Dread Empire’s Fall books.) Please put us out of our suspense asap.

Kelly December 10, 2007 at 6:41 pm

Yay! I look forward to the mystery being revealed.

Dave Bishop December 10, 2007 at 7:18 pm

Could it be that someone wants to make a film of ‘Metropolitan’/’City on Fire’?

Or ‘Dread Empire’?

Hope so!

I’m sure you’ll tell us when you can, Walter.

Zora December 10, 2007 at 9:39 pm

Calloo callay o frabjous day!

dubjay December 10, 2007 at 9:58 pm

Now I have the feeling that you’re all going to be disappointed when the time comes to reveal what’s actually going on.

It is wicked cool, though.

Michael Bernstein December 10, 2007 at 10:02 pm

Sci-Fi channel miniseries of Aristoi?

qtera December 10, 2007 at 11:51 pm

Whatever it is – Congratulations! Anything you think is โ€œwicked coolโ€ must be truly cool indeed! Canโ€™t wait to hear.
Love, Patricia

Johan Larson December 11, 2007 at 4:55 am

Let me guess. You finally found Jesus and said, “Tag! You’re it.”

David W Goldman December 11, 2007 at 7:12 am

I’m going with WJW action figure.

Rebecca S. December 11, 2007 at 4:02 pm

A WJW action figure would be wicked cool. Scuba gear sold separately, no doubt.

But now I have another guess: WJW’s gonna be on Iron Chef America. Here’s hoping the mystery ingredient is green chiles.

Tarl Neustaedter December 11, 2007 at 5:42 pm

Dubjay: …you’re all going to be disappointed

Well, there’s good news for you, and there’s good news for us. We’ve been speculating about the latter ๐Ÿ™‚

Now I’m wondering if you’re taking a summer off to participate in the next “Survivor” ๐Ÿ™‚

Fred Kiesche December 11, 2007 at 8:24 pm

Night Shade is coming out with your whole backlist?

Siristru December 12, 2007 at 11:27 am

Ah, a good news? For me good news will be to hear… that you will finally write continuation of “Metropolitan” and “City on fire” ๐Ÿ™‚

But, will you tell us this good news? ๐Ÿ˜‰

halojones-fan December 13, 2007 at 3:28 am

I agree that a third book in “Metropolitan” would be very welcome.

On the other hand, a “Hardwired” animated series would be kind of cool.

Or maybe just a series of action figures based on the works of WJW?

Siristru December 14, 2007 at 11:54 pm

It was an idea of animated series of “Hardwired”???

That is it! When dream will became truth??

In Poland only “Hardwired” was published… so sad ๐Ÿ™

But… what about this good news? It was 6 days ago… WJW?

InsightStraight December 17, 2007 at 6:28 pm

Ah! It seems I was incorrect that it was your commission for Admiral, and was, in fact, your commission as a god.

Congratulations upon you, O highest. Please remember that I knew you when.
