Ha I WISH I could write as well as that! Flattered you thought it was my blog.

There's definitely a lot of chatter about BBT building in some quarters, very exciting to see more bloggers talking about it.

Yeah, it's interesting interaction very suddenly bloomed over at BBT. Bakker was the earliest adopter... next comes the swarm of support and dissent.

I really hope we get to read Semantica one day, and I hope Scott isn't too discouraged by Disciple not selling as well as he expected. He's definitely making a name for himself in the theory world now, so there's a buzz building up he can capitalize on.

Bakker doing futuristic sci fi - sounds like the coolest thing imaginable!

Yeap. +1. It'd also be nice if wanted to spend another decade sometime doing a full on Space Opera, type-dealio.

I picture it as a one off like Neuropath. A PKD style fast paced big ideas novel, heavy on action and cyberpunk trashy.

+1 - Semantica, for sure. Or a duology or something.

But SF deserves a full-on Bakker/TSA epic.

I want this so bad but I'm afraid he's just going to keep writing TSA material.

Which is itself not a bad thing (I feel like a prequel series after TNG is almost inevitable) but...a legit Bakker epic SF would be so. fucking. good.

I think given the choice between a new Bakker scifi series, or an immediate continuation of TSA through the end of TNG, I'd pick the former. Given what appears to be his present focus, based on his TPB posts and such, I think he's in a better headspace for a new scifi, and a break from TSA might make for better books in the future.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Good points, I do think a break from TSA could potentially have net-positive results (I can't see it making the series worse-off, anyway) and I personally would take a longer gap between whatever the first book of TSA: The Next Generation is, though I have a feeling we may be somewhat in the minority there ;).
