Richard Morgan and EA

Richard Morgan's Blog has word that the British science-fiction author is collaborating with EA on a few projects (thanks nin via Shacknews), saying "I can cautiously reveal that I've been pulled in to consult on three separate games, have spent more time on airplanes and in overseas hotels during the last year than in my entire previous life, and have hit one of the steeper learning curves of my creative existence." He adds: "And it hasn't hurt that the projects I'm working on are all science fiction." As Shack notes, John Miles, Morgan's contact at EA, is associated with the EA Partners group which includes developers Crytek and Starbreeze, and the author's work with dystopian and cyberpunk themes would fit nicely with a Syndicate revival, which has long been rumored to be in the works at Starbreeze.

Altered Carbon was terrible. Hugely disappointed by his first book. I'd put him in the same category of sci-fi lites as Adam Roberts and Kevin J Anderson who I have had the misfortune of reading recently, who have no great ideas in sci-fi that they put their own unique stamp on. The sci-fi does not carry the story therefore, and what you are left with is a second rate detective story done better elsewhere.
