The Next Big Movie Franchise: Part IX: Who Is Mavra?


Dead_BeatHere we are with Episode IX of The Next Big Movie Franchise:

Our journey started on January 6 when I asked all of my readers what the next big movie franchise based on a science fiction or fantasy novel/series might be. It was a casual question, but the responses were anything but! In less than a week, I had about a dozen suggestions. In part two, we narrowed down these titles to a handful of the most popular and asked you to vote for your favorite, and as you know by now, Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden series won by a large margin.

Next Big Movie Franchise Part IV: Finding a Director for Jim Butcher’s ‘Dead Beat’


Dead_BeatReturn with me now to make-believe movie mogul land: A place we’ve inhabited together over the last three weeks. We started on January 6 when I asked you what the next big movie franchise based on a science fiction or fantasy novel/series might be. Our readers nominated about a dozen titles. In part two, I narrowed down these titles to a handful of the most popular and asked you to vote for your favorite. Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden series won hands down. There just wasn’t much competition. In part three, I asked readers to select the Harry Dresden book that they thought might make the best movie. Votes came pouring in, but it was Dead Beat that came in a winner, and it did so by a landslide. Today, I’d like for you to pick out a director for our pretend movie, but first, let’s take a look at Dead Beat and see what we’ve got to work with. (I know that ideally we’d talk about a scriptwriter, but for the sake of all of our sanity let’s assume that we have a quality script already in hand.)

A Conversation with Ben Aaronovitch, Author, “Midnight Riot”


A Conversation with Ben Aaronovitch, Author, “Midnight Riot”

If you fancy urban fantasy, then Ben Aaronovitch is a name you should know. His new novel Midnight Riot (published in the UK as Rivers of London) is a fresh take on a familiar trope, a magic-infused police procedural in a distinctly British vein. Magician’s apprentice/Police Constable Peter Grant’s penchant for deeply ironic humor and [...]
