I was flattered to be asked to write a guest post on Unreality SF a site that specialises in tie-in science fiction series (ie derived from a popular show which could be Babylon 5, X-files or almost anything else). I wrote a post as part of their five-year anniversary Celebrating Tie-ins series thanks to my Doctor Who Blog Red Rocket Rising.
What did I write?
I wrote a fairly lengthy piece on the genre as a whole and you may like to read the post here – What’s the point of tie-in fiction?; I start of setting out my stall by qualifying what I count as tie-in, discuss the motives people may have for creating (and consuming) tie-ins then discuss whether or not it is a good thing.
Feel free to pop over to Unreality SF and give me some feedback!
