SyFy Greenlights NIGHTFLYERS Pilot

Here's some cool news for the fans of my Thousand Worlds stories... y'know, the science fiction that I wrote way back when, long before I thought of GAME OF THRONES.

The SyFy Channel has just greenlit the pilot for a proposed NIGHTFLYERS series, based on my 1980 Hugo-losing novella, one of my SF/ horror hybrids.

Details can be found here (and in lots of other places on the web):

Since I'm exclusive to HBO, I can't be part of the NIGHTFLYERS development, but I wish them well. The novella was a favorite of mine (especially the longer version that I did for BINARY STARS), and I think the show could have a lot of potential... especially if you like a little horror in your SF.

If it looks as good as THE EXPANSE, by my pal Jimmy Corey...

(That pic up above is me and Parris at Denvention II, by the way, the night that "Nightflyers" lost the Hugo to Gordy Dickson).
