One thought on “Why Hollywood can’t get the hang of science fiction”

  1. Yeah, you’d rather have me comment at the article, but I don’t want another logon, sorry.

    Anyway, the author I’d most like to see well adapted is Le Guin.

    Her novels I’d most like to see big and beautiful and smart on the big screen are The Word for World Is Forest and The Dispossessed.
