And do you think it should be made into a Movie?
Hello everyone. I realize that I should have done this a little sooner it just took awhile for it to sink in. I did think about different ways to
introduce myself and what I might say about myself and I think that is what made it easy to develop a little amnesia around introducing myself.
I realized that the way that I have made good friends in the past is to share favorite books. I have found that it is a pretty good way to check
people out. So I thought that I would share my favorite authors and novels and especially the one I would die to see turned into a movie.
I am a voracious reader and I will read just about anything but I have a special place in my heart for Science Fiction and Fantasy. I like to think
that I like the good stuff. Probably my favorite Fantasy author is Gene Wolfe and I grew up on the New Urth novels and still follow his publications.
I also love Tolkien, of course. I also really like M. John Harrison and the Viriconium books as well as China Meiville and the new stuff from Steph
Swainston. I also had a giant bolus of Doc Savage 'novels' between the ages of 12 and 15, That didn't help matters.
I also pursue all sorts of esoterica especially Alchemy and Fulcanelli.
But my all time favorite Sci-Fi novel. The one I want to see a movie made of is...
The Stars My Destination
by Alfred Bester. I have loved this book since the first time I read it in the service.
I really like the character, Gully Foyle and how his need for revenge causes him to become a sort of superman. I mean; who doesn't love a story of
sweet revenge? This is the Grand-Daddy of them all. I used to think Arnold S. would be a great Gully Foyle but it is a little late now so my vote is
for Vin Diesel. He would do a better job any way because he is sci-fi minded. I hope any of you that are able and so incline will read this story.
Only 154 pages.
Here is a pretty good fan tribute video fro YouTube:www.youtube.com...
So that is the short version of me by way of books. I hope I will get a chance to swap favorites with other members. I have so enjoyed my membership
on ATS so far. Thanks for coming by.
