Day Two of the CSFF Blog Tour for Karen Hancock's The Enclave.
Yesterday I mentioned that The Enclave reminded me of Stargate, particularly the movie and the first four or five years of the TV program. That franchise explained ancient sarcaphogi in a science fiction way as having been used by aliens called gou'ald, or some such spelling.
Hancock's sarcophagi have a similar sinister origin, but she takes a totally different tack from a totally different historical line. Don't want to give away any spoilers here! I found her ideas fascinating. In fact, I used some of her ideas in a similar way for a Stargate spec script I wrote 5 years ago! But I didn't think of the sacrcophagus angle. Here's a link to that script BTW. Don't go to that link, however, if you don't want spoilers for The Enclave!
