I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s buying lunch in the cafeteria of sf shame for not having read this sf classic.
A few comments this week:
“I can’t see how you can do Hyperion in a single movie and wind up with anything much better than the mess that the DUNE movie turned out to be.” – Paul Weimer
“I would be afraid that they would turn this into a straight ‘horror flick’. Horrible monster goes around killing people on by one. Way too deep a novel to make into a movie.” – Cash
“Is Sean Connery available?” – platyjoe
“I hated that half of a book. I presume they will film Hyperion and the sequel since Hyperion is a completely incomplete story. BTW… Your polls are a lot less obvious on the left side of your web page. I’ve been missing a lot of them since you moved them.” – SF Fangirl
[John sez: Yeah…we know…and you’re not the only one. Our response numbers have been down ever since. This will be addressed soon.]
