Eadie here, posting for Butch, my god-father. He is very sick and back in the hospital. We don't know how long it will be. I know that he would want you to know about this. I'm only almost 13 and am being helped by my dad, Pye-rate on this. (We are on All Sci-Fi chatboard.)

New SyFy Channel Shows

Two classic sci-fi novels are in the works at Syfy. The network is developing miniseries projects based on Larry Niven’s Ringworld and Arthur C. Clarke’s [b]Childhood’s End.

Michael Perry (The River, Paranormal Activity 2) is adapting Ringworld as a four-hour miniseries. The story follows a team of explorers that travel to the farthest reaches of space to investigate an alien artifact called Ringworld — an artificial habitat the size of one million Earths. As they crash land on this enormous structure, they discover the remnants of ancient civilizations, technology beyond their wildest dreams, mysteries that shed light on the very origins of man and, most importantly, a possible salvation for a doomed Earth.

For Ringworld fans, this news might cause some deja vu. Syfy previously considered making a Ringworld miniseries under a different production team nine years ago.

Childhood’s End will be executive produced by Michael DeLuca (The Social Network) and follows a peaceful alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival ends all war and turns the planet into a near-utopia.

The projects will be announced at Syfy’s upfront presentation in New York City today. Earlier EW reported that the network is also development a gated community thriller from Robert Zemeckis. They join several previously announced Syfy miniseries in development, such as Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle, Stephen King’s Eyes of the Dragon and the apocalyptic mini Darkfall.

Sorry to hear about your God Father. We hope all will be well with the last Living Krell. :(

I am home from the hospital after enduring (suffering) 4 surgeries.

1) My left knee needed an entire rebuild after the first surgeon botched a re-connection of my meniscus tendons last year.

2) As a result of falling (because of said botched surgery) my left hip need to heal without stress. So I was in slings.

3) My large colon (intestine) at my appendix prolapsed into a fold of my liver and need to be straightened out.

… AND MOST IMPORTANTLY …

4) The lowest lobe of my left lung had to be removed due to the fact that it was basically dead — and gangrene had set in.

I wish to thank my goddaughter, Eadie on All Sci-Fi, for checking in to the various sites I normally go to and taking screen-caps of all of all of the posts so I can catch-up.

It'll take me about a week to a week-and-a-half to get up to speed.

Thank you for your patience.

(BTW; I missed my 64th birthday on May 13. We're having my party tonight after Doctor Who.)

Very good news to hear you are on the mend Butch.

After going through a few minor things (and injuries) myself the last few years, I learned the importance of good health.

Glad you are back around. :dance:
