The Fourth Realm trilogy, written by John Twelve Hawks and deal with parallel universes, secret organizations and population control, has been optioned by Fox for adaptation into a movie, with Alex Tse (Watchmen) adapting the screenplay and Gil Netter (The Blind Side) and Andrew Tennenbaum (The Bourne Identity) producing. Can anyone provide a good overview or even better a review of the books?
Interested in a more unusual piece of Doctor Who history? How about the EMS VCS3 synthesizer used by John Baker at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop to update the Doctor Who theme song in the 70s? You can find it on eBay, with the current high bid of £3,877.00 (about $6000 right now).
The 2010 Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention is taking place this year in Maryland from Sept 23-25. Mark Goddard from Lost in Space will be one of the many guests, and there will be lots of science fiction stuff on the menu.
