More SF/F Books to Read Before You See Them on the Screen

Recently, I looked at books whose film adaptations will be in theaters by year’s end. But we all know that the road from book to screen is a long one that has more pitfalls than bridges. This week at the Kirkus Reviews Blog, I take a look at some of the science fiction and fantasy books that have been optioned and might (hopefully) see the light of day as a film or television series.

    Im first read Ringworld when it was first published and remembered enjoying it. Recently I reread it and was dismayed to find the suck fairy has been at work. The characterization is non existent and the dialogue is terrible. Not as bad as The Mote in Gods Eye which I also recently reread with the same reaction(altho the misogyny is a big concern in Mote). Now Childhoods End which is much older I found holds up very well. I don’t have much faith in Syfy adapting these. I still remember the unwatchable versions of A Wizard of Earthsea and Riverworld.
