Re: The book you're waiting for...
Still waiting for the novel of The God Thing.
I'd like to see someone tackle Planet of the Titans
That'd be interesting.
I'd also be interested in seeing an anthology of stories written from the Phase II scripts that were written/outlined back in the '70s. Do it as a "myriad universe" book.
