Science Fiction Across Media: Adaptation/Novelization is due out on 16th September 2013. The book originated in the 2009 conference of the same name, which was held at the University of Leuven, Belgium.
My chapter is about Ray Bradbury's short
story "A Sound of Thunder" and the ways it has been treated in
difference media adaptations. I wrote it so long ago that I can barely
remember what it's about (and so long ago that I will probably cringe at
some of the things I say in it). I do recall that I refer to the story; to Bradbury's own TV dramatisation of the story; to Peter Hyams' disappointing film expansion of the story; and to several illustrators' treatment of the story's imagery.
Interestingly, the book's editors (Thomas Van Parys and I.Q.Hunter) or publishers (Gylphi Press) have chosen
to use another Bradbury adaptation to illustrate the
cover: Fahrenheit 451. It shows Cyril Cusack as Fire Chief Beatty warming his hands over some
burning books while Oskar Werner looks on.
