Hi, here in Virginia in the good ole’ U. S. and A, we have snow and ice and cold weather. On the Unproduced Scripts page we have thirty seven original scripts up for your reading pleasure. (Well, actually, I put them up about 3 days ago, but failed to let anyone know that there was more reading fodder). I’ve been traveling and arrived back to a couple of thousand e-mails (80% of which was spam). I’m still wading through and trying to get an update up and out. I’ve got sitting in my inbox some great stuff (well, in my opinion)
Whilst traveling I listened to quite a few audio books from Podiobooks.com (free registration and you don’t need an iPod to listen tot he stories). Let me recommend Lester del Ray’s Badge of Infamy – Daniel Feldman was a doctor once. He made the mistake of saving a friend’s life in violation of Medical Lobby rules. Now, he’s a pariah, shunned by all, forbidden to touch another patient. But things are more loose on Mars. There, Doc Feldman is welcomed by the colonists, even as he’s hunted by the authorities. But, when he discovers a Martian plague may soon wipe out humanity on two planets, the authorities begin hunting him for a different reason altogether.
I also recommend Matt Wallace’s The Failed Cities Monologues which tells the story of a hardboiled dystopian future of an American city divided in two – rich on one side and poor on the other. This is a very meaty, noir story told from different perspectives.
