For every story, comic, article, or book that gets published there are those that for various reasons never happen. I thought it might be fun to do an occasional post on a variety of pitches, ideas, and almost happened projects.
The idea of revisiting these was prompted by this recent bookstore find:
Many years ago I reached a verbal and handshake deal with a publisher to do an official history of Buck Rogers.
We had the outline agreed, had lined up in interviews with Buck Rogers and Wilma Deering themselves (Gil Gerard and Erin Gray from the 1980s TV show), started to pull together research items, and then it all went quiet and the final contracts never materialized.
Unfortunately due to a variety of reasons outside our immediate control the book never got to happen.
One of those projects that got away, but I remain fascinated with the subject, and hope to get the chance to revisit someday.
