Ray Bradbury just doesn’t know when to say when. He just finished writing — with pad and pen, mind you — a new adaptation of The Illustrated Man for the Sci-Fi Channel. He’s also involved in a new adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, and about a zillion other movie projects, and he’s got several new books due out later this year. If you can wrap your head around so many projects, read all about ’em.

Erf writes, In honour of Douglas Adams’s passing, the folks at Binary Freedom have proposed Towel Day. On May 25, two weeks after DNA’s passing, “All Douglas Adams fans are encouraged to carry a towel with them for the day.”
I know it was on Slashdot, but this is a truly good idea — DNA is one of the few authors for whom I’ll gladly indulge in such a “silly” tribute. I wonder if the folks at work will let me get away with this…
