Arthur, King of Time and Space


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 this:

  1. Fanfiction crossovers on Usenet and my ISP member website.
  2. Global replacement of the franchises' proper nouns, to create new versions of 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 King Arthur in Time and Space.
  3. Fanfiction daily gags on the website.
  4. KAITAS daily gags on the website alternating with the fanfiction gags.
  5. 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.
  6. The webcomic Arthur, King of Time and Space at its own domain.
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 daily cartoon, not the novel.

Then I got Megatokyo Chapter 0 for Father's Day and discovered mainstream webcomics, I decided to launch a King Arthur webcomic and not to 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.
