On a related note, anyone curious what might happen with SCE once the paperback re-prints are finished? I mean they're clearly selling well enough to keep doing them, but is that only because they don't have the associated costs of paying the authors as it's already written? Or might the line continue in dead tree form when we're caught up in a couple of years?
It's only because the stories are written and paid for, and otherwise just sitting around gathering cybernetic dust. It's cheaper to reprint these stories than to go out and commission new stories.
That said, if sales were such to indicate a growing audience and a continuing interest in the adventures of the da Vinci
team, the line could certainly be revived in one form or another.
