It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Gizmo's Reviews and Book Briefs.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
My answer will probably surprise nobody who has read this blog before: Any book by Samuel R. Delany. I love Delany's books and while he's not my favorite science fiction author, he is definitely on the short list. But even though he wrote his books in the 1960s and 1970s, they are still so odd, outlandish, and innovative that adapting his ideas to film would probably require hammering down the edges so much that the final product would be bland. Not only that, so much of what makes Delany's books so good is his use of language that the core of most of his books would be torn out in the shift from the page to the screen. I would fear that most film makers would probably wind up excising all of the elements that make Delany so great, and the end result would be bland mediocrity.
