Sweet. I've not checked Morgans Webpage for a while, so didn't know about the Netflix series.

I hope they do it justice. I'll be eagerly awaiting this and Ghost in the Shell with Scarlett Johansen.

I said it nearly thirty years ago when I read these - however long ago it was - that The Game would be awesome to witness but back then it wasn't possible. I'd bet that Piers is such a dick that he won't let any of his books ever become movies because, seriously, why haven't his books been turned into movies? The only one was Total Recall and that was based upon the script of the movie(with a better ending, I might add) and not a Piers version of the original story from PKD.

Many books has he written, and a load of them really great and should have been turned into movies by now which makes me think he is taking the Bill Patterson model(Calvin and Hobbes creator) about not letting his books get brutalized by Hollywood.


Total Recall was based on a Phillip K. Dick novel.....

I found carpe noctem (sieze the night) by Dean Koontz to be a very interesting read.

Cheers - Dave


That's one of two Christopher Snow novels by Koontz, correct? The premise of the stories are truly the scariest I've ever come across rather in the vein of the film "Event Horizon" really spooky.

In fact I wrote Koontz's 'people' to ask about further sequels and was told there would be more Christopher Snow stories - but it's all about Odd these days.


The best Koonz other then "Watchers".


But it's good sci-fi mixed with a touch of horror. Sideways......

Cheers - Dave


And it's true sci-fi in that it just changes one things about the world - rather then fantasy sci-fi which changes many things. They are truly creepy - Seize the Night and Fear Nothing by Dean Koontz.

Solaris by Stanislaw Lem
"When psychologist Kris Kelvin arrives at the planet Solaris to study the ocean that covers its surface, he finds himself confronting a painful memory embodied in the physical likeness of a past lover. Kelvin learns that he is not alone in this and that other crews examining the planet are plagued with their own repressed and newly real memories. Could it be, as Solaris scientists speculate, that the ocean may be a massive neural center creating these memories, for a reason no one can identify?"

The Breach by Patrick Lee
About Travis Chase's encounter with a government agency protecting a "science/technology" perhaps unworldly secret.


Flashforward by Robert J. Sawyer
Every person on the planet simultaneously passes out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. Everyone gets a glimpse of what they will be doing during a span of 2 minutes and 17 seconds...exactly 21 years into the future.

This is a little late to the post, but give Intervention by Julian May a try sometime. A little bit revisionist history, if you like psychic powers, it's a good one. And leads into a trilogy of Jack the Bodiless, Diamond Mask, and Magnificat - the Galactic Milieu trilogy. Which also leads to (but was preceded by) the Saga of Pliocene Exile.
