Thought for the day

I've only ever optioned one book or story by someone else. It was a book called WASP, by Eric Frank Russell. I was convinced it would make a perfect movie, and once it was optioned I started to write it. And then September the Eleventh 2001 happened.

I stopped writing the film and simply let the option expire. WASP wasn't fiction any longer. It had become rather too relevant, and I couldn't imagine a universe in which anyone would pay for it to be made in the foreseeable future.

If you read you'll find out why.

Or read the book.
