Word is that the director of Splice, Vincenzo Natali, has been signed up to direct Neuromancer. I have been waiting for decades to see this movie, and played the hell out of the game in the 80s and early 90s (which I still own in cherry condition). The book was the first of Gibson’s Sprawl trilogy, with Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive rounding out the set. This William Gibson book was also the first to ever win all three major Sci-Fi awards; the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Campbell. Pretty impressive considering it was his first novel, with only short stories before that. Now if only someone would do Snowcrash in movie format, we could have the greatest cyberpunk movie marathon ever; Blade Runner, Neuromancer, and Snowcrash!

Possibly one of the best Doctor Who reviews I have read lately comes from the LA Times, in the Doctor Who midterm checkup story. It is nice to see that some folks (meaning Robert Lloyd in this case) are paying attention and can express themselves in a way that helps others understand where we are in the series.

This simple and sad video caught my attention over at SF Signal, so I wanted to share it here.
