9 March 2013
Pat Murphy b. 1955 (won 1988 Nebula for The Falling Woman)
Movies released (escaped)
John Carter escaped 2012
My usual cut-off point is for a movie to make $100 million in domestic box office and John Carter missed that BY A LOT, but I think it's important to remember the genre is not bomb proof.
Prediction: March 1983: The Vatican Armistice ends World War III
Predictor: A Boy and His Dog by Harlan Ellison, 1969
Reality: To be fair to Mr. Ellison, this is an alternate reality he dreamed up where JFK survives Dallas and the Cold War gets completely out of hand. Trust Harlan to turn a liberal icon into a nightmare scenario.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE! Cranky young Harlan Ellison tells us World War IV isn't quite as easy to end as World War III.
Join me then... IN THE FUTURE!
