Just an announcement: I am now contributing articles on Medium, a new type of platform for writers and readers. My first article is No Sci-Fi for Old Men:
Movie studios are increasingly passing on headier and more intelligent SF projects, and instead greenlighting simpler themes that, when big budgets are applied, tend to rake in the biggest profits. And as they’re discovering that star power and high concepts don’t bring in the lucrative crowds that space battles and gore-dripping aliens do, they are less likely to go with more intellectual fare. And that will truly be a tragedy for all of us.
If you like it, I hope you’ll follow me on Medium.com to see future articles.
