Mr. Bear,

Thank you for your work. I've read it all and re-read it all the time. Please don't let anyone make your books into movies. I'm sure the money will be good, but they simply won't be able to do it justice. (I know, it's shocking, but I think a human's imagination is far, far better than a Hollywood movie.)

"Moving Mars" and "Eon" are my all time favorites. I cannot tell you how many times I've read each. Dozens at least. If I'm not careful, even after all this time, "Moving Mars" can still make me cry.

Forever a fan,

Daren L. Mitchell

Many thanks, Daren! We can always hope that a film will entertain and draw more people to the book--and sometimes, the film becomes a classic. That's the goal of all involved.

Hi Greg,

I disagree! I would love to see your books made into films.
Eon would make a great film, much better than most of the Science Fiction released by Hollywood over the last twenty years. I just finished Quantico, another great film.
I look forward to reading Moving Mars.
