Asimov’s ‘Foundation’ heading to Television!

Asimov’s ‘Foundation’ heading to Television! 

A couple of years ago it seemed that Fantasy and Science-Fiction had died its death on television. You’d get the odd show trying to kick-start the genre, but generally, no matter how good, we knew it was only a matter of time before it was cancelled (Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, StarTrek Enterprise, etc, etc, etc).

World Fantasy Award Winners

THE HOBBIT IN 72 SECONDS… Cause you ain’t got 9 hours. 

Not everyone has enjoyed The Hobbit movies so far and that’s a problem. Expected to sit at around 9 hours in total, when all is said and done, that’s a lot of life to waste on a trilogy of movies. What if you are one of the people who didn’t enjoy it and a friend […]
