Hi Burhan,

I try to find out. A movie of the Chronicles would be very nice.

Problem with making a movie of the chronicles is the rape scene at the beginning of his first visit/hallucination/transportation. It's has many implicaton's later in the story so it can't be written out.

The fact that you've got a fantasy genre with rape scenarios make me think that this movie would not go down well in the US.

Since you like Fantasy, I would recommend Lois McMaster Bujold's Paladin of Souls. On SciFi, I have liked Robert A. Heinlein's Stranger on a strange land, Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game and Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Thanks for the Recos, will try them out sometime.

Hey there, great site. I came across it searching for TextPad tips (svn commit via Ctrl+1 is awesome!) but keep coming back to see your pictures of scorpions and what not.

I have not read the Thomas Covenant books for so long, I didn't even recognize the author's name. It's funny to be reminded here. I liked the series a lot.

Lately I've been reading Vernor Vinge. A Deepness in the Sky is my favorite.

Stephen R, Donaldson is my favorite author. My favorite book is The Mirror of Her Dreams, and I think that it should become a movie. Though, all his books should become movies, no matter how hard it might be. KEEP ON WRITING DONALDSON!
