Amiko commented on the post, The grand experiment: ALIVE serialized audiobook on YouTube/Facebook
I have noticed the low view count of Scotts’ youtube content (compared to the audio downloads).
I was wondering if it would help for fans to open and like those videos (and add comments perhaps). Would it make it more likely for the videos to be recommended to other users or would it boost the advertising revenue or have some other positive…[Read more]
Amiko: We’re not worried about view count or advertising revenue with this experiment. We wanted to see if the concept had legs, and the jury is still out.
However, all “thumbs up” clicks on these videos do matter. We don’t know the math of the YouTube algorithm, but that’s a big thing the YouTube stars ask for in their videos. So do that! And…[Read more]

If it would be on orbit, it should have a one-way gravity towards the planet it orbits. No?
As it seems to have an (artificial) gravity towards its’ center, it must be in outer space.
Correct me if I’m wrong.
Ever see 2001? it spun in a circle to have gravity at the outside edges. This seems like how this is built. Being next to a planet wouldn’t do anything to give you gravity, on one side or not. Space is space, next to a planet or between them. No gravity.

“Being next to a planet wouldn’t do anything to give you gravity, on one side or not. Space is space, next to a planet or between them. No gravity.”
Ummm…. no, ‘fraid not.
If you were stationary next to a planet you will accelerate directly towards it. Moving object like satellites don’t suddenly fall out of the sky because they are a…[Read more]
Yes, sure. There isn’t much of a gravity on ISS also. For some reason I wasn’t thinking straight.
The description was very similar to the Space Odyssey 2001 spaceship (scaled up) or to the ringworld from Halo series (scaled down), not to mention the Ringworld itself.
I didn’t scream “Heureka!”, but I kind of guessed it.
When will The Crypt character stories air as the tv series?
I bet The Crypt would be great as a tv-series/movie combo. Like Star Trek, only better. Like Firefly, only not cancelled.
Was there even a chance for me to know this from podcast? I don’t remember the owner of Earthlings being mentioned before.
Haven’t bought any GFL hardcovers because of reasons.
What a surprise to be a GFL team owner now. Thanks Scott. 😉
And you got my name right, that’s a plus, as right as can be expected from an English speaking person anyhow.
Great news, congratulations!
Can’t help but to ask about The Crypt: Would you think it would be better suited for the small or the big screen?
Any works you think would be better as a movie instead of TV series? Or perhaps Firefly-style series-movie combo?
Not quite what I was expecting, Scott, but I’m happy that you are happy.
Is The Crypt book two still on the list somewhere or is all hope lost with this one?
If it won’t be out by the 10th anniversary of book […]
Thank You, Scott. Thank You for pimping that Justified show.
So, on a Saturday afternoon I was going to check out what the fuss was all about. And here I am, on a Sunday morning, thirteen episodes later, heading […]

Who do I have have to kill or sacrifice to get The Crypt series at least as long as The Rookie?
Seven books total planned about football players, four already written, but book two about marines not even on schedule yet?
I know it’s coming on it’s own time, but are there any plans on The Crypt series length? Will the two year tour be…[Read more]
