This was recently posted to a comm I'm watching. Quoted:

No, it's not Star Wars: it's not even sci-fi. It does however, feature four recognizable Rogue Squadron characters.

I happen to write western novels as well as fanfic. I've already written three books featuring characters from Blakes 7, a tv sci-fi series I'm a fan of. As I love writing about Wedge and the Rogues, I decided they could go into a western too. So Wedge, Tycho, Wes and Hobbie are now a Colorado sheriff and his three loyal deputies.

The characters have the surnames of the actor who played them in the movies (except Tycho, as I couldn't find a name for him). The town they're based in is called Lucasville, there's a beautiful widow called Eileen Wessex and the bad guy is called KJ Anderson .

Sadly, the generic gunfighter on the cover doesn't resemble any of the heroes, though his colouring is correct for Sheriff Alec Lawson. The setting doesn't look a fat lot like the Rockies either. Never mind..


She's selling the book on Amazon. Isn't that . . . plagarism? Or at least copyright infringement? I'm genuinely clueless.

Heh. If she had kept her mouth shut and used different names, she would probably have gotten away with it. As it is, I give it 24 hours before Lucas is all over this like white on rice. He's funny that way. *g*
