James Rollins did the novelization of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
I've tried that before. I think gaps in markets often exist because there isn't the interest.Seems like there's a real gap in the market here, HB. Forget reading - get writing!
See how Peter Richard Haddon is doing, that might helpTalking about the Lost World, I remember a Trigan Empire adventure (comic strip syndicated in magazines) when I was growing up, in which two opposing countries (good and bad) discover that a previously lost valley has just been opened up by an earthquake. The Trigans send a diplomatic mission, the Catons send a military force. In the valley filled with prehistoric monsters, the two forces come into conflict. The Catons capture the Trigans, but gradually the Catons fall prey to monsters etc (partly thanks to the captured Trigans' cleverness) until the forces are more even. Then they discover the lost city, where they are all captured, and I can't remember what happens after that (except magic, and a supposedly young priestess who turns out to be an old woman in a mask).
That's what I wanted. That.
Yeah you're entirely right and I do know this having read most of Feist and Brooks! - Ive just finished a house move and my brain got confuzzled. Brooks is all the Shannara stuff. I prefer Feist but Brooks is a really nice guy - seen him in some interviews and his involvement with the Shannara TV show. Nice guy by all accounts.I think the author of those is Raymond Feist. Terry Brooks is the one with all the faux Middle Earth stuff I think.
It was. I blasted through it at the time I discovered it. But for the last two or three (or four or five?) years, I've gone back to it every couple of months and found three new pages that each advance the story about 2.5mm.Also, if you don't mind getting this in webcomic form, The Order of the Stick is *exactly* what you want, free, and amazing.
I would like to argue with this but can't. Never ever really found anything like it (save the short run and now defunct Keychain of Creation)It was. I blasted through it at the time I discovered it.

But the early stuff does fit the bill, you're right. Have also added a couple of the others to my TBR.
