Re: “Movies... of the Future!

@Spindles: Given that Spielberg produces Transformers, I'm guessing he might've.

Re: “A Cyborg Anthology Edited by a Cyborg

@Reymont: I subscribe to it on Kindle. It's like two bucks a month. (I've got a Paperwhite, which I like a quite a bit, certainly more than any of the other ereaders or tablets I've tried.) I know they also do annual printed anthologies of Clarkesworld though, if that's more your thing: http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/staff/#rea…

Re: “Jack Vance

Also worth reading: Carlo Rotella's 2009 profile of Vance for the New York Times Magazine:

"Dan Simmons, the best-selling writer of horror and fantasy, described discovering Vance as 'a revelation for me, like coming to Proust or Henry James. Suddenly you’re in the deep end of the pool. He gives you glimpses of entire worlds with just perfectly turned language. If he’d been born south of the border, he’d be up for a Nobel Prize.' Michael Chabon, whose distinguished literary reputation allows him to employ popular formulas without being labeled a genre writer, told me: 'Jack Vance is the most painful case of all the writers I love who I feel don’t get the credit they deserve. If 'The Last Castle’ or ‘The Dragon Masters’ had the name Italo Calvino on it, or just a foreign name, it would be received as a profound meditation, but because he’s Jack Vance and published in Amazing Whatever, there’s this insurmountable barrier.'"
