Seven years ago Joe Spencer, a small town barber, bought a strange looking stone at a yard sale. Every time he touches the device, he has a vision of the SG-1 team and a mission they've undertaken. Over time, he becomes very involved in what he sees. He tells the stories to family and friends, couching it in terms of a science fiction story he's developed. He even tries to make contact with Jack O'Neill, but with little success. As his obsession with SG-1 grows, his friends become bored with it all and his wife leaves him. With little to lose, he tracks down Jack who seems to know exactly what he's talking about.

That still doesn't explain the proximity issue. I mean, if the stone General O'Neill touched was kept here, how was Joe able to see everything that happened to the General off-world?
I think he was getting most of it from when Jack was writing up his reports right here on the base. The stone was being stored just a few levels above.
That's why the stories were so easy to write. It was like someone else had done most of the work for me.
And you say they all got rejected?
