Galactic Suburbia turns 17

You can download us from iTunes, or go to Galactic Suburbia to get it from our website.

In which we talk about awesome women, excellent short stories, and make Alisa throw away a book!  Our pet topic is film-to-book, book-to-film and why you’d want to move a story from format to format.

Pet Subject

book –> film –> book
– why make films of books?
– what makes a good film adaptation?
– conversely, why make books of films, why do they get less attention, can they be as good as the film?
