Whoops. I alluded yesterday to "the novel version of AKOTAS" (which is
really a misnomer), thinking I'd mentioned it in this space before. But I've
only mentioned that in drafts of future newsposts and a message board poster
called me on it.
The evolutionary steps between my fanfiction and the present project go like
All the previous material except the novel you can still find among the
fanfiction pages at the link on the AKOTAS main page. Attempting a
KAITAS novel taught me several things. The most valuable: my medium is

the same stories which are not fanfiction crossovers but King Arthur stories
set in space, on Usenet and the fanfiction website. Given the umbrella title

- Fanfiction daily gags on the
- KAITAS daily gags on the website alternating with
the fanfiction gags.
- The first draft of a KAITAS novel
The Grail Project, derived from but not quite the same as the
fanfiction-based material, on Usenet and my website.
- The webcomic

Then I got Megatokyo Chapter 0 for Father's Day and discovered

confine it to only Star Trek pastiche, and my wife suggested
Arthur, King of Time and Space was a better description of the
webcomic. The rest you know.
