Teleplays

Name: Phil Nichols Source: unca20071007.htm David Loftus - hey, you should have checked the Ellison filmography over on Zuz's Islets site, here: http://www.islets.net/film/filmlist.html (...which was compiled by, uh, me!

Joe L. Hensley

Name: Phil Nichols Source: unca20071007.htm I'm sure most frequenters of the Pavilion will know at least some of Joe's work. I remember his story from Dangerous Visions and his collaboration with Harlan in Partners in Wonder, but I regret never getting round to picking up any of Joe's own books. I ...

Name: Phil Nichols Source: unca20071007.htm Alan - Nard didn't say he got mad. In fact, he said Harlan was kind in his rejection of Nard's writing! However, I had to read his post twice to see that he wasn't ranting in the way I first thought he was. Nard - didn't expect to see you over here. (Nard...

Bradbury

Name: Phil Nichols
Source: unca20070528.htm
Harlan, Ray Bradbury's Pulitzer was announced on this very Art Deco Dining Pavilion a couple of weeks ago - by me. Not the same as hearing it from the man himself, I know.

Next stop: Nobel...

Radio drama

Name: Phil Nichols Source: unca20070528.htm Stan, (and anyone else who misses the days of radio drama) please be aware that on this side of the pond, radio drama is alive and well. The BBC's output has declined in recent years, in both quality and quantity, but there's still quite a bit of good mat...

Details are here: http://www.pulitzer.org/2007/2007.html Part of me says that a special citation is one of those honorary awards, like the special Osc...

Writer-directors

Name: Phil Nichols Source: unca20070325.htm I find it quite fascinating that some directors seem to crave a writer credit. I'm not sure what (if anything) this says about the auteur theory. Mention of John Huston and Moby Dick reminds me that Huston claimed co-screenwriter credit for that movie, al...

Nigel Kneale

Name: Phil Nichols Source: unca20061122.htm I was shocked to discover on this forum that Nigel Kneale had died. And a little shocked that no one else reacted to the news! Kneale was one of the great British SF screenwriters, creator of the wonderful Quatermass series from the days of live TV (the g...

Ray Bradbury

Name: Phil Nichols Source: unca20061122.htm Harlan, I've often wondered whether you've ever been approached to adapt any of Ray Bradbury's stories for the screen. I know he has written plenty for the screen himself, but I'm always intrigued to see one writer's interpretation of another. I liked wha...
