Unless something happens to it! Dun dun DUN.God dammit, Monte. The sun won’t balloon into a red giant in a billion years. That’s gonna take four or five billion years. In a billion years it’s just gonna be so hot the oceans will boil away.
It seems to me that if you set your game so far in the future that multiple empires have existed and fell to open up a lot of possibilities for yourself, then writing a book about the missing timespan misses the point. Either the stuff in the intervening time has no relevance to the "modern" setting, in which case it's a load of wank and why would anyone buy your book, or it has a lot of relevance to the modern setting, and you've just wrote you and your GM's into a lot of Canon that they probably didn't want anyway.
It sounds to me like a set of books that nobody actually needs... but on the other hand, Monte Cook runs a successful games company and I just complain about things on the internet, so what do I know.
