So Many Books is pondering books that can't possibly be as good as their titles but are.
She has included one of my favorite books from many years ago, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein. That reminded me that I had heard, seen, read, or been told that Tim Minear, screenwriter for Firefly, The X-Files and Angel is working on a possible screenplay for the story. I found this article about the project.
"This is about a revolution. It's big and it has a lot of really complex political ideas. It's hard in that respect. How do you personalize this? There's a lot of talking in the book - theoretical talking about Libertarian ideals and political structure and that sort of thing - how do you take that and make it immediate and dramatic and emotional? How do you say that stuff through scenes and action, as opposed to characters sitting around and having a conversation? That's difficult.
"The other thing is to make sure the powers that be in Hollywood don't force you to turn it into some Marxist screed on socialism, when Heinlein was a Libertarian and it's about free-market capitalism. You want to try and not make it about an evil corporation. That's the trick."
