Hi, gang. Yes, this is the TVCU blog. No, this isn't a chronology. And no, this isn't actually a special announcement. I just wanted to take a break from the usual crossover chronologies to say hi and thank you to our readers.
If you follow this blog, then you know that as the new year began, we started posting here again quite regularly, and even have tried some new things, such as the TVCU Crew Reveiws and the Quickies. But I also wanted to point out some other crossover goodness.
I've been writing a book, which I hope to have done by summer's end, called the Horror Crossover Universe. It's kind of like what I do here in this blog, but the format is different, it's far more detailed, there's not cut and pasting. All my original brilliant writing. And it's all about fictional crossovers in the horror genre. And not just television and film, but all genres of horror fiction.
Once the book is done, I will be moving right on to the second book, the Cartoon Crossover Universe. Meanwhile, James has several other blogs in the works, and all the TVCU Crew have special posts for April 1.
So while you're waiting for us to get our act together, here's some other places with crossover goodness to keep you going.
Toby O'Brien has his blog, Inner Toob, which is about a shared reality where all of TV exists as reality. There's lots of crossover discussion there. http://toobworld.blogspot.com/
Another great crossover site is Thom Holbrook's Poobala site. http://www.poobala.com/crossoverlist.html
And then there's also Win Scott Eckert's Crossover Chronology. http://pjfarmer.com/woldnewton/Pulp.htm
Another fun site is Super-Team Family: the Lost Issues. http://braveandboldlost.blogspot.com/
But Rob, you say, even though I can't hear you, what if I want to have detailed conversations with you, James, and the rest of the TVCU Crew about the inner workings of the Television Crossover Universe? Well, you are in luck. There happens to be a forum just for that (but you have to not care that Mark Zuckerberg, the NSA, and Obama will be invading your privacy.) The TVCU discussion group is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/397263440360228/.
There's also another discussion group, for crossovers outside the TVCU, called the Crossovers Forum, which is found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/146387439534/.
And you can like the TVCU at our fan page at https://www.facebook.com/TVCrossoverUniverse.
And if you'd like to be my friend on Facebook (especially if you're a beautiful lady who likes guys who write about crossovers and love to talk about Doctor Who), you can find me at https://www.facebook.com/robert.e.wronski.
And though it's not really a crossover site, two great crossoverish sites run by a friend of mine, Chris Nigro, can be found at http://monstaah.angelfire.com/ and http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/Wold-Newton-Beyond-0-2/.
Okay, so that's it. Keep coming back and checking for updates. I have been posting nearly every day since the year began. I've had to direct my energies on the book, because it's been over a year, and I'm not nearly as far as I should be, and I really have no more excuses. But we haven't abandoned this blog, and we will keep it going. Thanks for reading.
