I started writing Captain Hawklin and the Skyhook Pirates in the winter of 2003/04. It’s not that I hit a snag or anything like that. In fact I was writing like gang busters and would have finished the story by spring. As I worked on this story I became aware of a movie on the verge of being released.
The movie was Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and I discovered that the opening scene of that movie was a lot like the opening of this book. It was then that I figured I better put Captain Hawklin away until I saw the whole movie. If Sky Captain would be a success then I would rework my opening or change the concept all together.
