I’ve mentioned it in interviews, but I’m a huge fan of When Worlds Collide and After Worlds Collide.  Apparently, judging from the lyrics, so is Iron Maiden.

If there’s ever an old sci-fi movie I want to see redone with modern technology, it’s this one.  But only if they get someone competent to helm the thing.  I don’t want a repeat of “The Luckiest Limo Driver In California,’ a.k.a. 2012.
When Worlds Collide will be referenced in a couple of Vergassy Universe short stories.  I’m all about homage to the fiction of my youth, and I read the hell out of these two books.
