ASCII artist extraordinaire Chris Knudsen has posted four more ship loadout pairs from his Privateer Ascii Sector project. First is the long-awaited Centurion... the other three are (in order) the Ulysses (a larger merchant ship), the Pegasus and the Nexus. As always, very impressive! This should be it for ship layouts, but who knows what we'll see next?
Dr. Forstchen is going places - the former Wing Commander author has hit the prestigious New York Times bestseller list with his latest novel, Pearl Harbor: A Novel of December 8th:
7. Pearl Harbor, by Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen. (Thomas Dunne, $25.95.) The buildup to the historic attack, with an alternative ending.
You can find the whole list here. Forstchen and Gingrich's book is nestled directly between J.R.R. Tolkien and Chuck Palahniuk. Who knew?
