OT: Trek writers and THE GREEN HORNET

Since there's a precedent of us long-time Trek writers occasionally plugging our non-Trek projects here, I can't resist announcing that THE GREEN HORNET CHRONICLES is finally available, featuring new stories by such writers as Harlan Ellison, Robert Greenburger, and, er, me.

And I suppose, if I really want to stretch a point, STAR TREK was an old 1960s tv show, and THE GREEN HORNET was an old 1960's tv show, so this is sort of on-topic, right?

Cool. I'll look through it if I see it, might get it.

I'm a long time Harlan fan...

In the interests of full disclosure, I should probably divulge that Harlan is represented only by a five-page fragment of a story--and a ten-page essay on why he decided not to finish it!

I'm conflicted as to if that makes me want to read it more or less now...

Re: OT: Trek writers and THE GREEN HORNET

Well, Harlan's essays and introductions are usually worth the price of admission . . . .

Any word on who's doing the novelisation of the movie? Or if there'll even be one, given the poor word of mouth advance promos are receiving?

You never know. That's the tricky thing about novelizations.

It's like buying a lottery ticket. You never know if you're hitching your wagon to the next big thing . . . or the next big flop.

Needless to say, I'll definitely be checking the new HORNET movie out.

Oh, true. The man can rant like none other. I'm just not nuts about the idea of only reading half of a Harlan Ellison story, especially considering his current state of health.

Me, too -- it looks like good, goofy fun. When I saw a live interview with Seth Rogen last summer, he said they were going for the same comedic action tone that True Lies had. Works for me.

Re: OT: Trek writers and THE GREEN HORNET

I'm planning on picking up Kevin Smith's Green Hornet Hardcover of the first volume of his book so I'll pick this up as well, I fell in love with the art for the book and the story seems interesting enough.

Re: OT: Trek writers and THE GREEN HORNET

I'd also recommend the Green Hornet: Year One series that Matt Wagner is writing.
