There’s a storm brewing in the eddies of spacetime. Seems that not only has Fox is developing a new Time Tunnel series based on the original by Irwin Allen, but ABC, where the original aired, is also developing a series based on the 1964 book by William Jenkins, and both seem ready to go to court. At issue is whether the original series was truely based on the book, which would mean 20th Century Fox’s rights (they produced the original series) would have expired.
I can’t believe this fell under my radar. Just as I thought I was getting close to completing the Encyclopedia of Known Space, Known Space just got larger. Man-Kzin Wars IX has been released in hardcover, with 4 new stories from Poul Anderson (his last published story), Hal Colebatch, Paul Chafe, and Larry Niven himself. I though all I had left was VIII, and then some mop-up of missing stories. If anyone has a copy of MKW IV they are willing to sell (reasonably!), let me know. Head on over to the Bookstore of Known Space to see other titles.
