Spoiler: Lt. Close dies in book four.

Made ya look, didn’t I? *wicked grin*

No, to the best of my knowledge, the author has no plans to kill off Lt. Close in this or any novel. (Although, should the person after whom this character is named want him to die in an interesting way — some people like to brag to all their friends about being one of the murder victims or zombies or whatever in a novel — I recommend waiting until the next book.) Beyond that, I have no idea what’s going to happen to him. (So, so many movie quotes I could warp to make a joke about this with, including one from Braveheart…)

Today, I’m thinking of another writer who may or may not have Tuckerized me (could be that the name Thomas was picked… haphazardly, but it seems unlikely) in a very short story, and I’m wondering if he, too, ought to become a minor character in one of my twin’s novels. In retaliation for the bad pun, maybe the fictional version of him ends up in… Cincinnati. *ominous laughter* Or maybe he’s an engineer aboard the Betula in “that novel.” Or maybe he’s someone Alandra Kade encounters in a noisy bar somewhere, and they get into a debate about beers.



About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  1. I love debating beers. I always take the pro side.
