Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment, by James Patterson
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment
Six normal kids, Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel, were captured as babies, and had bird DNA grafted into them. After that, they grew wings, hollow bones, larger hearts and lungs, and heightened senses. They were held and experimented on at a secret facility called the School, until one of the scientists, Jeb, took them away. Angel, the youngest child, is kidnapped, and taken back to the school, where she sees Jeb again. The others go after her, and end up getting captured themselves. They all escape again, only to be chased by Erasers, half wolf, half human hybrids, all over the country.

The Spiderwick Chronicles, by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black
The Spiderwick Chronicles
“The Spiderwick Chronicles” is a very good book series about three children, twins Jared and Simon, and their older sister, Mallory, whose parents got divorced. Mallory, Jared, and Simon move with their mom to the decaying old mansion belonging to their ancient great-aunt Lucinda, who has been sent of to an asylum. But before they can even unpack, Jared begins to notice that they’re not alone in the house. There’s something living there with them. His investigations eventually lead to an old book filled with pictures of fantastic creatures—Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You—and an even bigger mystery—the disappearance of his great-great-uncle and Lucinda’s father, Arthur Spiderwick. The Spiderwick Chronicles is being made into a major-motion picture from Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies.

    Great job everyone who worked on this edition of the Haven Herald! It was once again, totally awesome!

  2. Hmm… the comics won’t show, but I think thats my computer’s problem.

    No, it’s not your computer… The server where I uploaded that comic
    collapsed early today… That comic was working last night! I’ll fix it
    as soon as possible [which is a few hours since I am in school right
    now].

    And thanks for pointing it out. Otherwise, I may not have noticed! XD

  8. Hey guys! Great issue. Love the changes! Sorry I haven’t been on in forever. Very busy. Too busy to write full sentences.
    EXTREME CONGRATS EVERYONE WHO WON THE FANFICTION CONTEST! I ran out of time to write mine. I wouldn’t have won anything anyway. Those are way better than mine ever would be!
    Shoot, Opal, you made my Trance character sound like a total Mary Sue! 44 points, at least. Made me completely abandon my Life of Lies story, too. *rushes to the Word Processor and makes major changes to character.* Damn you! Joking, joking. Thanks for pointing out the flaws.

    Nice! I really liked the “Mary-Sue” character guide; man I catch myself doing that. -hand/forehead- Also, the comic… well that was just hilarious. Poor Arty…

  13. Hey there,Thank you for mentioning Rosy and me on your brilliant blog. Fanfiction is a great way to start writing. I’m guessing some of your readers are younger than me (my daughter is 20) and for writers of all ages, fanfiction is an excellent way to learn writing skills and to share your work with a (hopefully) willing audience.I used to write stories when I was at junior school but stopped until I was 42 – when North & South came on TV and inspired me and a lot of other people.  My one piece of writing advice? DON’T wait until you are that old to start writing! Forget about what other people might say and just do it. You never know where it might lead and if you enjoy writing, don’t let anyone stop you.By the way, my first book, Decent Exposure, has been optioned for a TV movie by Fox. I don’t know if it will be made – but it all stems fom writing fanfic. I’m sure Rosy will come here and tell you her view on fanfic too.Phillipa Ashley

  14. […] is so cool. I got mentioned (with Rosy Thornton) on the Fowl Fanfiction. I am so proud to have begun my novel career as a fanfiction author. Fanfiction mus be the biggest […]

  15. Rosy Thornton March 19th, 2008 at 10:33 am 15

    Great article! Like Phillipa, I’m another oldie, who didn’t discover fanfic – and through it, fiction writing generally – until I was a mum. But fanfic is certainly a great training ground for writers – limbering up using someone else’s characters and settings is such an easy way to begin, and the support, friendship and feedback available on sites like this are brilliant. Then you can go on from there to develop your own original stories if you want – or just carry on sharing the characters you love with others who love them, too. Neither Phillipa nor I had written any fiction before we tried out hand at fanfic in 2005 – and now we each have our third novel ready for publication later in the year and are working on our fourth…

  16. Absolutely LOVE the Cartoon Artemis!AS an artist I can really say Well Done.Keep it up!

  17. Ah, cool.
    I can’t believe you guys came on to our lil’ newsletter. 😀
    Thanks for the advice. Your stories are pretty amazing.

    That comic was HILARIOUS!!!!!!

  19. OH NOOO!!! I entered the wrong story! Editors! Just so you know, that contest entry was the wrong one! Untimely meeting was the one that should have been entered! I REALLY should have deleted a fatal mistake! That was my worst story ever! Please remove my entry! I forfeit my title! Just PLEASE don’t let people see that one! Untimely meeting should have gotten credit!

  20. Oh…well, I guess it wasn’t TOO bad…OMG! That Haven Herald banner is just beautiful! The comic was hilarious! I hope to see more in the future!

  21. Yeah! NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF FANFICTION, ARTEMIS!!! Y’all should do more of these themed newsletters!

  22. O.O
    I got best fanfic…

    And I haven’t even been visiting this site for the past two months…

    I love you guys.

  23. I was a smidge disappointed my story wasn’t qualified, and my brother agrees non-cannon sequals should have been accepted, but I’m glad Pheonix won. She is an acceptional writer.

  24. Another great issue, guys! 🙂

    The link to the fan art of the month is incorrect, I think. Or at least, I’m not being directed to the picture described.

  25. No, it’s correct. That’s the picture I described.

  26. Oh- it’s right for me now too. Either it got fixed, or my computer was just being weird that day (it does that).

  27. It’s not your computer; I fixed it. XD Sorry for not letting you know by commenting.
