Man in the High Castle miniseries

Postby Omphalos » Sat Oct 23, 2010 9:33 pm

I'd watch this, for sure. One of my two favorite Dick books. But those damn Scott brothers seem to be agreeing to do everything that anyone mentions to them lately. They can't possibly do it all.

Holy Dingdong! MitHC was the first Dick book I read and is still my favourite. It was my introduction to the I Ching oracle book and alternative history.

There's a great graphic novel of it out now by Boom. Much better than the book, AFAIAC

A lot of his fans proudly call themselves Dickheads. :)=

(Personally, I think that's pretty damn awesome.)

In Hollywood, a lot of people have awkwardly fumbled around with Dick. Many screenwriters, after failed attempts at adaptation, have said of Dick: "I just couldn't lick it."

What we need is a Dick specialist. Someone who can grab hold and get the most out of Dick.

Who has Dick envy?
Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with, and I know, that given the choice, I wouldn't have chosen you as friends, but I just want to say, that over the years, I have come to regard you as people I met.
