What is Fatebound?
Fatebound is a series of novels by Seth Pen. It is a fantasy/scifi set in an alternate universes consisting of three known solar systems: the Sun, Solaris, and Delia. The story follows a multitude of characters and their tales as they intertwine to save the universe. War, love, magic, just a lil bit of time travel and a whole lotta fate combine as civilization opposes chaos in life’s pursuit for immortality.
What should I know before I start reading? Two things:
- Start with Volume 2.
- Chapters are spliced with “Tales” that include important lore to understanding the full plot of Fatebound but – as you get started, this lore will probably bore you the fuck out – you may just want to skim these sections. The lore is split with portions of dialogue where Joe or other characters ask for clarity or argue over the truth of the tale, these small portions often include more pertinent information, information that specifically pertain to the story’s immediate plot – so if you do chose to skim, those tangents may be the only sections you really need to swallow. That said, the lore does help one grasp the politics and the people at play in the story.
How Can I Be a Part of Fatebound?
NOTE FOR ALL INTERESTED ARTISTS: The original Fatebound series will be published in novel form, however, we are looking for artists to reproduce the books into graphic novel form and – eventually, animated or live action TV or film form. We are also interested in artists willing to depict scenes or characters. Anyone interested in drawing for the Fatebound series should email firstname.lastname@example.org (This is Stephen Lundy’s email, Seth Pen’s coauthor/editor) a query complete with a handful of examples that should adequately display the inquirer’s artistic style and ability.
