And so it begins.

You've been very patient boys and girls. And I've been yanking your chain over this for the last six months, and I'm sorry. Keeping it to myself has been very nearly unbearable.

But now, I have something to tell you.

The secrit projekt is secrit no longer:

May I introduce--

Shadow Unit.

The brainchild of the amazing coffeeem, Shadow Unit is, more or less, the website for a serial drama in internet form. Or possibly it's a fan site for a TV show that doesn't exist.

Over the next couple of months, the site will be updated on a weekly or biweekly basis with new information, vignettes, character sketches, character bios, a community message board, and other exciting things.

And starting in mid-February, there will be a series of novellas and novellettes, and one complete novel. Approximately one story every two weeks for sixteen weeks (though we are still tweaking the schedule), comprising the first season (of hopefully many) of a television show that doesn't exist.

Some of the content will be free. Some will be by subscription. (Subscriptions will be extremely reasonable.) There will be DVD extras, deleted scenes, background information, character-based digressions, and I dunno what all else.

The staff writers (as of today) are Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, Sarah Monette, and myself. The Brilliant Web Ghoul and Fabulous Artist is Amanda Downum. The Technical Supergeek is Stephen Shipman.

I am so geeked I can hardly stand it. Setting this up has been exhausting, exciting, and downright mad. It's a work in progress: it's rough, ready, and under construction. You're in at the ground floor.

We sincerely hope you have nearly as much fun playing in this world as we have in creating it.
