Wells, IMHO, although I know that can be arguedscience fiction has truly entered another era – the fine-tuned HD voice which has assimilated everything from before and is now rebooting it all in extrapolated creativity and knowing mockery, yet underlying it still is a serious moral adventure.
Is Scalzi’s reimagining of an sf classic the forerunner of a new age where book execs go the route of Hollywood and commission people to rewrite old books instead of writing original ones?
