Re: Novels based on the movie cast.

I can't speak for the other authors of the abortive Abramsverse novels, but now that I've seen STID, I can safely say that Seek a Newer World is very much not compatible with the movie. I may have been too ambitious and delved into too many of the same character and thematic ideas that the sequel tackles, so there's no way both stories could happen in the same continuity. At the very least it would take a heavy rewrite to make it compatible, but at this point I'm not sure it would be worth the trouble. If Pocket were to begin doing Abramsverse novels, it might be better just to start over and tell new stories based on what we know now.
