Well, I’m Glad It’s Ridley Scott Doing It

… that is, if someone has to turn my favorite PKD book into a TV miniseries. Between that and Guillermo del Toro doing At the Mountains of Madness, I can say one thing: it’s good that people who actually like SF are making these movies.

  1. It’s my favorite too: am really looking forward to it.

    Forgive me if I’ve mentioned it to you already, but if not then I’m just curious: have you read Bring The Jubilee by Ward Moore? It’s widely considered one of THE classics of the Alternative History genre, on a par with The Man in the High Castle.

    I’m surprised its Wikipedia article doesn’t reflect that:


    1. James,

      Huh, this is the first I’ve heard of it. I suppose it’s just been eclipsed by more recent works? The whole South-winning-the-Civil-War thing has been done enough times now that I guess it has become old hat. Or maybe Moore just isn’t as remembered? Anyway, interesting though I must admit I don’t feel driven to read such an alt-history just because so much of the genre is focused on US history. I’m more interested in reading (and writing) alt-history about other places.
