Since February 2009 I’m working on a full-length Indiana Jones novel. I mentioned it in this thread before. My aim was to produce something that distinguishes from “average” fan-fiction in terms of complexity and research. Unfortunately for now the project is only planed in German. So this may only be interesting for those who speak it... The novel will also be produced as audio book – read by German actor, author & whip expert Robert Amper.
The title is “Indiana Jones und der Rauchende Spiegel” – Indiana Jones and the Smoking Mirror. It’s about an old Aztec artifact: the Smoking Mirror of Tezcatlipoca – the Aztec god of war, darkness and death. (The story has nothing to do with the game Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror )This is the website of the project.
So finally you tell us the title of your Indiana Jones novel.
A very nice Mac Guffin, very similar to the ark of convenant. Could become a nice story.
I'm waiting eagerly to read the hole story.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
Oh I just saw I typed something wrong. By "actor, author & whip expert Robert Amper" I meant "actor, director & whip expert Robert Amper"
I just translated the blurb:
1940 – Just having a narrow escape from frosty death in the Himalayas, intrepid archeologist Indiana Jones finds himself stumbling into the next adventure: When his friend Marcus Brody asks him to help an old fellow student of his, a race up against the Nazis around half the globe begins in pursuit of a mystic Aztec artifact: “the Smoking Mirror of Tezcatlipoca”. Indy tries to protect it from the Germans for legend has it, that it brings death and darkness over mankind; it even has the power to annihilate entire cultures. Can Indy stop the intimidating SS officer Friedrich von Burgwald and his men, put paid to the Nazis sinister plans and save the allies, maybe even humanity, from their demise?
“Doctor Jones, I’m known for getting what I want!”
“And I’m known for not doing what I’m told to!”
Fast paced, dirty and with the most sarcastic grin in the history of movie making – a novel rarely has been this close and honest to the Indiana Jones saga.
