FYI, if you have Netflix, seasons 1 and 2 of the Animorphs TV show are now available via Netflix streaming. There are a few complaints that small portions are cut, so keep that in mind, but if that's an ongoing issue I imagine it will be fixed soon enough.

And now I know what I'll be up to this Independence Day weekend...

I got an email that mine shipped today (one and two) from Scholastic.

Just thought y'all should know.

To Everyone:

Wow. You made us cry. Even Michael and that's not easy.

This was incredibly moving for both of us. Humbling as well.

It is very weird to think of the fans being adults now. Fans with jobs, fans in college, Elizabeth in Iraq. (I knew Michael was getting older but I didn't
think I was. Damn.)

We had always hoped Animorphs would have an effect beyond the "aaargh" and the
"tseeew!" We tried not to think about those possibilities, of course, because
we both have a mortal fear of taking ourselves too seriously. Marco's theory
that you have to decide whether you're going to see life as tragedy or comedy is our philosophy as well, and we've always figured our first obligation -- before we started laughing at anyone else -- was to laugh at ourselves. So we'd know we were sneaking "big issues" into the books but we never wanted to really think too much about it. After all, we're just fiction writers not philosophers and if we ever started thinking we were having an effect that would carry over into adult lives we'd be paralyzed by the responsibility.

We'd love to do book #55. Or #55 through #60, even. But that's not our
decision to make. The publisher would have to make that call.

In the meantime we are both back at work. "Home of the Brave" and "The Buffalo Storm" both by "Katherine Applegate" are coming out this fall, starting I think in late August. Some of you guys might enjoy Home, but Buffalo is a picture book. I have a little kid series, "Roscoe Riley Rules" coming out next spring about the same time as Michael's "The FAYZ." Michael's going to be using the pseudonym "Michael Grant." As many of you know he's sensitive about blurring lines, especially on-line, where 11 and 12 year olds probably shouldn't be reading his more adult stuff, hence the pseudonym.

Again, we can't tell you how meaningful this was for us. We were really moved.

Okay, folks. So this May is the six-year anniversary of the end of Animorphs, and June is the 11-year anniversary of its beginning. It was proposed in a previous post that we do something to commemorate this, and [livejournal.com profile] dontcalmeprince has happily volunteered to send K.A. a collective email for us all.

So here's what we're doing: If you want to say something to K.A. for the anniversary, just post it in a comment here, and then I'll compile them into one big letter so that [livejournal.com profile] dontcalmeprince can send it to her. If you want your username or first name included, just put it in your comment. If you want to include artwork, email it to me at fluffer007@yahoo.com (put Animorphs or KA in the subject line so I can find it in case my spam filter catches it). I'll put the letter online, complete with artwork, so everyone can see.

You've got one and a half weeks. Tuesday the 29th, 3pm Central Time is the cut-off for commenting. It will be ready by Wednesday the 30th.

***Format your comment as though you're speaking to K.A. Like "Dear KA, just wanted to say..." not "Please tell KA that"***
