  1. “Lots of interestimng…”

    Very interestimng!

  2. Seriously though…when he started talking about tossing in nanotech, I got a bad feeling in my stomach. Sorry, but part of the charm of Golden Age SF is the fact that it is Golden Age!

    SF can be retro (Steampunk, anyone? Ever notice the big clunky telephones and such on Battlestar Galactica 2.0?). Retro can work, if the hand is restrained. Sounds too much like the author wanted to interject his own stuff into Asimov, rather than adapting Asimov. In that case, he should have pitched his own (original) space opera.

  3. Thanks, Fred. I knew there was a reason we haven’t blocked your IP address. ;-)

  4. Just doing my little bit to brighten your day!

    :-P

  5. thank you for your reference to my Top Ten Sci-Fi film, july 22.

    My only regret is that , at the time, I failed to include a worthy film.

    The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957).
