In what could be the HG mash-up of the year, Salman Rushdie has declared that "quality TV drama has taken over from film and the novel as the best way of widely communicating ideas and stories..."
He's writing a series for Showtime. It's SF.... (but of course not really)
It's a sort of paranoid science-fiction series, people disappearing and being replaced by other people," said Rushdie, 63, best known for Midnight's Children and The Satanic Verses. "It's not exactly sci-fi, in that there is not an awful lot of science behind it, but there are certainly elements which are not naturalistic."
