Oh where to start! This is the book that Derek first handed me when I said I might be interested in getting into his sci fi game thing on the ground floor, but that I wasn't sure sci fi could be used to tell compelling human stories. After reading this book, I signed on, completely convinced of the power of the genre for amazing storycrafting. And here I am, so I guess it really did make me a believer, and in many ways working on this game, with all of you (players, too!), and with everything we've been through...has changed the course of my stars, so while it sounds twee, this book helped direct my life!
That said, I admit I'm scared of this movie being ruined by Hollywood. I have it so perfectly in my head, what folks look like, what they sound like- if they get too much 'wrong' by my own internal estimation, I don't think I'll be able to enjoy it.
But, oh, if they get it right! This has amazing potential. And I do approve of the casting that I've read of so far; very curious to see how Bean is handled in particular.
I could discuss this for a very long time. I'll shush long enough to let others in on the talk.
