The Avatar Chronicles (Literature) - TV Tropes

While, like its two predecessors, the novel is set in the futuristic fantasy domains of an electronic video-games-playing world, the origins of its narrative technique lie in the myths, legends and folk tales which constitute our oldest stories. Story, in fact, in all the numerous possible modes of its telling is central to Kostick's concerns.

Here, the emphasis is on teenage Penelope, who, in Edda's virtual world, has spent most of her life at the beck and call of its oppressive ruler, Lord Scanthax. In the guise of her avatar, Princess, she 'scripts' the weapons he employs to exercise his bellicose aspirations. Eventually though, she rebels and allies herself with a colourful group of young freedom fighters determined to create revolution.

Review quote Continuity is created with the earlier novels in the series, in the form of characters who we know and like, while at the same time there is inventiveness, especially in the figure of Penelope who is physically on a life-support system but whose avatar is free to roam worlds. Kostick challenges the young reader intellectually, but the heart is always in the right place too.

This book would work equally well for younger and older teenagers. They gave talks on road safety in my school. But now I was witnessing them beat up strikers and their supporters. I was suddenly outside the box and challenging everything, it was very liberating. And yes, I do advise going against the grain, not for the sake of posture, but to clarify your own ideas. How much self promotion do you need to do these days as a writer and does this distract from the writing?

But I might be wrong about this. More and more buzz seems to be created by making an effort to build up followers on Facebook or Twitter.

One reason for my reluctance to build up my online presence is simply practical. If I get an hour at the computer to write, I want to spend it writing a novel or a work of history, not posting comments and promoting myself.

Or give a guest essay on some topic. When you start a new book in a series, is it like putting on an old pair of comfy slippers or is it terrifying? What challenges do you come across and how do you overcome them? More comfy slippers than terrifying. But the constraints of the world you have previously created do pose a challenge.

So often as I work I aim towards a particular moment where the key dramas take place, the scenes where a character will either rise to the occasion or disintegrate. Some authors like to have everything planned out and you have to do that if you are writing certain kinds of story.

How to get character A, B and C in the same room, with very different agendas? When you are writing in a series, your freedom to make up the paths by which you come to these nodes is very much curtailed. There are a lot of reasons to become discouraged as an author. If, for example, you measure your writing career by sales then you are in for a roller coaster ride.

Because the market is so competitive you might find a few months of relative success are followed by your books disappearing forever into the vast sea of titles that washes around the planet each year. But there have been other defining moments to take into consideration, such as when I met Sharyn November at Worldcon, Glasgow We talked about everything except the fact that she was an editor and I was an author with a book whose US rights were available and we got on famously.

Firebird won. Ultimately though, I think the impulse to write and this applies to nearly all the writers I know is not derived from the pursuit of money but from the desire to tell a story in order to entertain and move others.
