Wikipedia has an article called Ceres in fiction. You can see a list of literary fiction that makes reference to our beloved world, Ceres:

Hmmm, something seems to be missing...

Now we can't add EFT because we are "family" members. However any of you who are so inclined can edit the entry and correct this shameful oversight...

Thanks in advance from the EFT team.   ;D

The only novel by L. Neil Smith that is included is "The Venus Belt". Shouldn't "Forge of the Elders" and "Ceres" also be included?

Sure, but let's get our priorities straight. EFT could always use the exposure.   ;)

Wikipedia could probably use an EFT article as well.

True. But adding "Ceres" by L. Neil Smith and then noting, in passing, that it's being adapted to the webcomic format in Escape from Terra gives better plausible deniability on the spam charge.

Maybe you are not as Insane as you claim...  :P

No, no, NO! EFT and Neil's CERES are in no way connected. Neil and I know each other and have a lot of overlap in our world-views, but our stories exist in very different universes.

Ah. I don't know where I thought I read otherwise - with the caveat that a few things had been changed and added as EFT went along. I guess then I can read Ceres without worrying about spoilers...

Do read Ceres. It is an excellent novel. I got to read the first draft quite some time ago and really enjoyed it. I think Ceres and EFT have substantially different "tones," but both are enjoyable in their own way. The Universe is a big place, with plenty of room for all sorts of stories.
