From Bruce Sterling’s blog. This list has been floating around for awhile but I enjoyed revisiting in. If you found one of my notebooks it reads pretty similarly, but with more random smatterings of dialogue in search of a conversation.
How can you do true existential terror in PG-13? I can imagine the notes from the studio: “can the giant monster from beyond time be more friendly?,” etc.
Luckily for us, they weren’t in charge of the original, and you can read H.P. Lovecraft’s At The Mountains of Madness for free on Wikisource.
