And yet another sci-fi title makes it to the screen...

will become an Amazon mini-series!  

An instant Staff Pick at the Merrick Library--I pressed it into many hands back in 2014.

In an earlier post, I said that you don't have to like sci-fi to enjoy the story. Think Tom Perotta's, "The Leftovers".

So what's this one about?  I'll let fill you in: 

"Strange New Things, which Deadline wrote about in April, was penned by Matt Charman, with Kevin MacDonald set to direct. An adaptation of Michel Faber’s praisBook Of Strange New Thingsed 2014 book The Book Of Strange New Things, the story revolves around Peter Leigh, an English pastor who embarks on the journey of a lifetime into deep space that takes him light years away from his beloved wife, Bea. Described as “Heart Of Darkness in space,” Strange New Things is an epic with a heart-wrenching love story of a husband and wife with the universe between them at the center. Charman, MacDonald and Andy Harries exec produce.
Iconic musician Brian Eno will provide music and soundscape for the series, believed to be one of the most ambitious TV projects ever to emanate from the UK." -

Can you hear me now about these cool sci/fi books to screen?
