More About the Author

Sally Malcolm lives in London, England, in a small Victorian terrace, where she writes in a corner behind the wardrobe. She shares her home with her American husband and two wonderful children, who generously put up with her stepping through the Stargate, or sailing the high seas, when she's meant to be cooking their supper...

I am currently reading Sally Malcolm's novelization of the Stargate Atlantis pilot episode, "Rising". I am a huge fan of this show and, therefore, very particular about the way the characters are portrayed in stories. I am finding that Ms. Malcolm has a very good grasp of the characters from the show. She writes them well and has, as far as I've read, kept the characters true to the premise of the tv show. She also has added some wonderful insights into the characters that would help explain the story to those readers who are not as familiar with the tv show. I would definitely recommend this book and I also hope that Sally Malcolm will write more Atlantis novels!

The Stargate fan novels are very true to the characters and are the equivalent to watching an episode on SCI FI, only in most cases better. Some of the books are just new adventures written by fans, good, but not great. While others are Great adventures where the author actually expands on the depth of the character and team, fills in gaps that us fans have always thought or guessed about. So far all the SG-1 books have had Jack in them, not Cam. I am using this as a generic review for all the books rather than risk spoiling anything in the stories. I have watched all episodes in the series (both SG-1 and SG-A), heck I own every published season, and as much as I hate to admit it I have seen every episode at least twice, in short, I am a Stargate nut. I have purchased all books written in the SG-1 and SG-A series, though not all of them through Amazon due to availability. Sometimes the shipping takes a long time since they are published in the U.K.

Interesting if you're a fan of TV's Stargate Atlantis. Its just a novelization of the pilot episode... just in print. There are maybe a few insights and thoughts from the characters, but otherwise its pretty much word for word with what was on TV.

My purpose is not to tell the storyline, but to let you know about buying this book from Amazon.com. I purchased Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis Fandemonium Books published in the UK using both E-bay and Amazon.com services. Both ways worked fine for me. I prefer using Amazon.com. Just a note, though. If you order from Amazon.com, your order might take longer than the initial estimate (especially if you order books not published yet). My order took about six weeks, but that was OK with me. I preferred waiting on Amazon.com rather than trying to buy from the UK and paying a high price on the exchange and shipping rates. So, I recommend using Amazon.com (United States) and waiting (if you have to). As for the book, it was fine. Like other fans, I've watched the pilot Rising so many times, there were no surprises in the book for me, but if you have not seen the pilot episode of Stargate Atlantis, this is a must-read. There was one funny scene in the book that made me laugh out loud that was cut from the pilot episode (has to do with Teyla taking Sheppard on the hike to the cave). Whoever wrote about the Power Bar had a huge sense of humor. I really enjoyed that. Yes, if you are collecting Atlantis books, you need this one.

Let me tell you, this book A-awesome! Sally Malcolm really understands the characters, and their inner monologues and thoughts are quite revealing and hilarious at the same time too. She nailed Jack O'Neill and John Sheppard perfectly. Their wry humor, the laid back attitude... Her McKay is convinced that the universe is out to get him, that for some reason, fate hates him personally. Teyla is a wise, thoughtful leader. And even Weir and Ford are likable! My favorite part of the book/episode is the beginning that takes place in Antarctica, when we get to see the characters for the first time and the threat of the Wraith is still far, far away. If I didn't find it silly, I would talk about the book in capslocks, I love it so much!

I love Stargate Altantis, the show is smart and fun. The novelization of the pilot "Rising" is just the same. There are wonderful "inside their heads" moments for almost every character. This book is a quick, fun read, with lovely color photos in the center of the book.

The book is true to the script, which means that certain scenes are played out in a slightly different order than you see them in the aired pilot. Some lines are spoken by different people so that might be a little jarring if you've watched it as many times as I have. There are a few very good scenes that are not in the show that are in this book that I really liked.

So if you like novelizations, I hightly recommend this one. If you've never read one, this would be a good one to get. And if you've never seen SG-Atlantis, who knows, it might peek your interest in a really well made show.

This book was amazingly written. It was like watching the episode only in word format. It was interesting to see the events play out from other points of view. I did notice that some of the dialogue was missing from the book that was in the episode, but it was minor. It didn't distract from the book. The only people who would notice are those who have watched the episode many times.
