Well, I have all 3 Myst books,
and read them more than once...

Now that there is a new MYST sequel,
(appart from URU)
Does anybody know if there is also a new book in the making ?

I don't think the books were written in conjuction with the games, so I wouldn't expect one to come out with M4. I would be great to have more of those books, though. I loved them. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I know the books have no "relation" to the games, other than them beeing a very good "add-on" to the whole story line.
The helped me understand a whole lot more...
and my hunger for more is not yet stilled http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well, that sure looks good ;-)
But since they are publishing this...
I don't think there will be a 4th book any time soon http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

god i wish i had a credit card

but right now the only book i'm looking for is the Book of Atrus, i've already read the other two

Personally- i think the Book of D'ni was the greatest thing alive (book of Ti'ana was awsome too, don't get me wrong)

There has been a fourth book discussed for some time now ... The Book of Mirrim ... and Ryan Miller (Rand's younger brother) is writing the book and had a rough draft online at one point (can't find it now) which Cyan has placed of the back burner for now and no clue as to if or when this will be released ... all we can do is hope. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Perhaps the ending has not yet been written!

And how many backburners do the folks at Cyan have?!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Actually they're doing a great job so I shouldn't complain http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Couple things...

1) I tidied up the links in this topic 'cause they were making *my* screen scroll, which is something of a feat.

2) Cyan has had the Book of Marrim (one I, one A, 4 M's http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) on the back burner since Uru's production kicked into high gear over 3 years ago, and there's been little indication that it's going to come to the forefront any time soon.

3) The decision to re-publish the novels was Hyperion's.. Cyan's been bugging them to do it ever since BoA went out of print.

4) LotR-Sam, please make your sig shorter.

It kills me to see sigs bigger than the original posts. Smaller sigs looks more professional.

I totally agree, I understand that people have something to say. Trouble is, when they post it in a sig, it feels like they are trying to stuff it down my throat. I guess we all have something to say, at some point, but I look at sigs as free advertizing for a point that most folks don't want to take the time to write about. They just want to push the issue http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif ( I don't include links to related sights here, I feel those are self explanatory and optional to the readers.)

Just my opinion.......

05-24-2004, 10:14 PM
fair enough....

ya, now that i think about it- i never meant for my sig to be this long.. but i liked it.....

anyway- i can take a hint, but i'm gonna leave my sig up for awhile longer

Hey, biggie, is it possible for you to post a link for your sig? Or maybe post a line or two, with a link for additional inspiration?

Right, uhmm, biggie, lets just make life easier for all of us.

Don't use a signature. Or keep it to one line. Your signature has been editted so many times and warned for, that I have a hard time believing it isn't done intentionally. I know you're learning -- which is awesome. But *snip* http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Biggie... here's a tip:

When joining a new community, try lurking a bit before you post to see how people behave. Then you may find if that's your kind of gang or not.

looks like some people can be more civilized than i thought they could

The key word here is 'offensive'. We don't DO offensive in these forums - in any way shape or form. Learn this, please!

We are an adult friendly forum. As adults we do not require swearing to get a message across. As a member of this forum, we expect the same of you.


Oh, and you should take Ze Pedro's suggestion. Very sound advice. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

the only thing added to it was the inside pictures of the front and back covers, they are both from the path of the shell expansion pack, otherwise just the 3 books put together.
