“Oh, the Ringworld is Unstable / But It Won’t Be Shown on Cable…*”

…Bezos optioned up this fable
And that’s good enough for me!

Gimme that old-time space opera
Gimme that old-time space opera
Gimme that old-time space opera
On Amazon TV. (more…)

Book of the Week: Ringworld.

I’m a little surprised that Ringworld hasn’t come up, yet. Maybe I’m assuming that those of you who are science fiction fans are all Niven fans already.  Anyway, it’s the best damn pastiche of the Wizard of Oz you’ll ever read.  No, seriously, Larry Niven himself has had this insight (WARNING: TV TROPES LINK).

And so, adieu to The High Crusade.
