I'm a little disappointed that the Fandy Atlantis novels are going to be written by "professional writers" (story) rather than it being open to submission. Not because I had any great dreams of making my break into publishing with Fandy, or because I love all of the non-professional SG-1 novels (Snackrifice Moon is so totally a dud), but, well, the US has been burned by "professional writers" before. Ashley McConnell's books progressed from moderately bad to funny because it's so lame to unspeakably horrible, and I'll gouge my own eyes out with my thumbs before I read that again.
So I'm a little wary.
On the upside, hopefully professional writers means no insertion of any Shep/Weir idiocy ;)
