My Fantasy Movie

Last week, after watching "The Bourne Ultimatum" with my wife at the 2nd-run cinema on a rare adults-only date (well worth $3, by the way), I seized on the idea that somebody should stick Charles Stross and Guillermo del Toro in a room and keep them there until they've made "The Atrocity Archives" movie. They'd need a cast too, so put Simon Pegg in there to play Bob, and Christopher Plummer to play Bob's boss.

Today I discover that I'm not alone in this fantasy land. Wacky. Won't happen, of course; another Hellboy movie will have to do.

Stross dumps on Amazon's Kindle in that post, and has my favorite explanation yet for the glowing praise it got in the geo blogs: people just lost their saving throw against shiny!
