Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

Fifteen years after his death, Robert A. Heinlein’s long-lost first novel is being published. Posthumous productions are generally disappointing, but Heinlein, in death, has amazed me before: The uncut edition of Stranger in a Strange Land is one of my all-time favorite reads. (I have what I think is a killer film adaptation rumbling around in my head. Perhaps someday I’ll let it pour out.)

you do know, don't you, that a film adaption was already attempted?

I know that one had been planned, with Tom Hanks as Smith, but I don't know if a screenplay was ever written, and I don't know how to research that sort of thing. What can you tell me?

Your thoughts?
