American Gods by Neil Gaimanamerican gods

Okay. We’ll admit it. We’re just a wee bit partial to Gaiman, particularly to American Gods. But what more could you ask for? Displaced gods, Americana, road trips, an honorable, trusting hero and the slippery snake of a villain, all described in triumphant prose that titillates the word nerd palate. American Gods has it all and we really want to see Hollywood’s take on this spec classic. Oh, sure, there are whispers about HBO and Tom Hanks being involved in a series, but we aren’t holding our breaths. Still…protagonist Shadow Moon on the big or small screen? Yes. Please and thank you.

  1. H. Beam Piper’s Paratime on the big screen, please! Anything from “Police Operation” to “Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen.” Or his Terro-Human Future history, “Ullr Uprising” or “Little Fuzzy” (the original, not the reboot). Sam Elliot would make a superb Jack Holloway!

    And while we’re at it, when did The Man of Bronze *ever* get a serious big screen makeover? How about a gritter Shadow?

    David Eddings’ “The Belgariad” and “The Malloreon” series (would make for great television)

    “Vickers (Corp*s*e)” and “The Long Orbit” by Mick Farren

    Steve Perry’s “Matador” Series

    David Weber’s “Honor Harrington” series

    The list goes on and on.
