My review of New Moon is up at Tor.com. I’ll have more to say about this movie, later. (Oh, do I EVER have more to say about this movie.) But for now, read and know that, as you read this, this movie is screening to sold-out theatres across the land. Just…think about it.… Read more »
So, The Prisoner remake happened on Sunday. And apparently it’s still happening? I fell asleep, so I don’t really know, but I wrote it up at Tor.com, with the headline, “I am not a number!
