I’m over at SF Signal today, participating in another “Mind Meld.”
This one asks:
“This year’s summer movie slate is full of sequels and remakes of existing properties. As science fiction/fantasy fans we know there is a wealth of written material that deserves to appear on the big screen or on TV. The recent news that Dan Simmons’ Hyperion Cantos is being adapted for the silver screen is welcome, even as we’re sceptical about the final result. Our question this week:
What other story, or stories, do you believe are deserving of being made into movies and why?“

And feel free to post your own thoughts!
Hellgate: London: Goetia, by Mel Odom, is the second in his Hellgate: London trilogy.
Up there with Indy 4 and Prince Caspian, Iron Man was one of the top movies I was looking forward to this summer. And thankfully, I was not disappointed. In fact, just about every aspect of the movie impressed me. As I expected, Robert Downey Jr. captured Tony Stark better than anyone else could have. The wit, charm, and intensity he brought to the character incorporated everything essential about the billionaire industrialist. He’s a playboy, eccentric genius, with a drinking problem. But when Stark discovers that his own company’s weapons are being used by terrorists, he decides to live a life of purpose and make some big changes.
