But what he has to say in his latest piece at AMC’s blog — “Why the Movie Version of Your Favorite SciFi Book Stinks, Part I” — is spot on. John says in the article that he spent last weekend at an SF convention (as I did, though not at the same one), and that this discussion was prompted by a fan’s question there. Which is totally plausible to me, because pretty much everything John says here is the same stuff I’ve said on the many panels about movies I’ve sat on at cons. In fact, it seems entirely likely to me that John stole all his ideas from me when we first met… which was when we were on a panel together at a con a few years ago.
Bastard. But you should still read his piece.
