    I still think Icerigger would make a great movie, and Little Fuzzy.

    I will have a crack at a Kung Fu Sci Fi, but it will be a while, I'm trying to get a book published and it is eating nearly all my time. I only pop into WF for a break.
    Good luck with that. I'm doing the same but I allow myself to feel guilty about too-frequent breaks.
    I met him at the end of Duane Eddy's driveway (they're neighbors in Scottsdale). That was a moment to remember, to treasure. I've had a few.
    Kung-Fu Sci-Fi has been done. I have a little bit in my weird western tale, for the weird western book that's due this summer. But it sure ain't common.

    I have noticed the new trend of trying to make Zombies a bit Sci Fi-ey. A new virus or alien possession. I did have a stab at a Sci Fi Vampire short. Frankenstein is already Sci Fi. How about werewolves?

    And scary Sci Fi children, Midwich Cuckoos anyone?

    Shapeshifting has lineage in (mostly entirely unscientific) sci-fi so I guess werewolves wouldn't be a stretch...

    The green children of woolpit seemed to me a possible good source for a science fiction take on the creepy-little-kids angle. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_children_of_Woolpit

    Were these based on Chinese Wu Xia novels, or Western takes on Kung Fu? Any books you could recommend?

    I didn't say it was well-done. More like blue rare.

    I had thought of a time travel brain twister based at Cern. A sort of mind-bending Swiss Fargo.

    What I need is a million bucks and to be left in peace.
