Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet

Good news at last that after ten long years this movie finally may see the light on DVD. I have yet to see Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet, but I know the audience will grow significantly once this work reaches the “new” medium. Long my favorite Shakespeare play (along with The Tempest, a character of which is the namesake of my daughter), I’ve seen many versions of Hamlet, except this one. Branagh is a superb actor and director, and I can hardly wait to see his interpretation sometime later this year. No doubt we’ll have to pay a pretty penny for this production, too.

Book watch

This will be an interesting novel to see how it develops. very likely technology will outstrip some premises, but key elements remain.

An Island Called Liberty

Via Wendy McElroy’s forum, a link to a children’s book called An Island of Liberty, which bills itself as a cross between Dr. Seuss and Ayn Rand. Mainly aimed at kids, with lots of rhyming.

Roswell, Texas goes live!

The online comic book by L. Neil Smith and Scott Bieser went live today at Big Head Press’ revamped web site. Right now it appears the web page is ad supported as the comics there are free. Do yourself a favor and check out the site, and if you haven’t already done so, I recommend also looking into at least one of the ads: Michael Wentz’ novel, Resurrection of Liberty. In my opinion, this novel should have been a Prometheus Award finalist, and as I’m halfway through reading those six books, I know of at least two so far that I can’t fathom how made it ahead of this novel.
