There is an incredible series written by Conn Igulden, about the rise of Genghis Khan.

Historical fiction, so you read his story as though it's a novel, but all(most) of the events as they happen in the books are the events that actually happen. He lived among the tribes for a while as well to make sure he portrayed their culture as accurately as possible.

The first one at least wouldn't require much of a budget, just a good director. Ridley Scott-Kingdom if Heaven sort of gritty realism would be a sight to behold for that series.

It's not as good as his Julius Caesar one.

I am on the fifth book after you recommend them on the sci-fi thread. Simply the best series I have ever had the pleasure to read and will be gutted when I've finished the last and tenth book, knowing that there'll be no more.

As much as I'd love to see the Culture Series adapted for TV, I simply cannot imagine how it could be done with so much chat between machines, not to mention the complexity of the plots. Also it they would require a HUGE budget due to all the necessary CGI.

Once again thanks for recommending them :nod:

I would love to see HBO or Netflix do "His Dark Materials" and do it well, I can't think of anyone else who wouldn't shy away from all of the religious stuff but I think with their budgets and ability to make high class TV they could do it.

You're welcome. :thumbup:

Although, yes, they'd require some serious cash to make them look as good as they need to be, it's probably only Excession I think that would be really difficult to turn into a TV show I reckon with all the chat between the ships.

Books like Consider Phlebas, Look to Windward and Use of Weapons are all TV friendly I reckon.

Also, every book has a top female character. If a TV company had the guts to go for it, it could be superb! One series per book, stand alone, would be awesome.

Your recommendations, for any high-power TV executives who may be logged on?

Kin'ell. You and me have similar tastes.

I'd love to see May's novels televised.

Don't think Covenant would work, but in terms of unlovable anti-heroes, Angus Thermopyle from Donaldson's Gap series might be a possibility.
I can't stand the Covenant books but love the Gap ones.

Pliocene Epoch FTW though!

It will be interesting to see how they go. Ideally they won't cut out some of the more controversial tones of the books.

There we go then :thumbup: Glad HBO didn't get it to be honest. They would have just been like tits though?

I like FX for the most part. The Shield, Justified, Fargo, The Americans are/were all top notch shows. Obviously it's going to be hugely dependent on the showrunner, the writers etc. etc. but it's a good fit network-wise.

The most legendary fantasy series of all. This kind of anti-hero is quite popular on TV of late too. Would be epic if bought to life.

Aren't they doing a Shannara TV series? Shannara is a fantasy series for those that don't know, albeit one that's more aimed at young adults. Odd choice for a TV series as I got the impression it was never as popular as the likes of Wheel of Time or the Feist books. Not really sure who it's aiming for.

edit...can confirm they are

Tank Girl is another comic that would make a great tv show. Edgy as fudge.

The Invisibles could be seriously cool if it was done well.

Lacrobat wrote:The success of Game of Thrones proved, now TV production values are on par with film, that with the right script and actors, small screen adaptations can compete with big screen versions.

And the hits keep coming; The Walking Dead is a monster smash, SyFy just rolled out James Corey's Expanse series, Amazon has scored with Philip K. Dick's Man in the High Castle, Spike TV is developing one of my favorite hard sci-fi series, Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy, and FX has an adaptation in the works of my all-time favorite graphic novel, Brian K. Vaughan's Y: The Last Man.

So I'm already spoiled for choice, but, my world would be complete if either/both of the following were realized in live action:

Stephen Donaldson, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant:

Image

Epic and adult. No character in literature makes it harder to be sympathetic than Thomas Covenant, starting with the crime he commits on day one after arriving in the Land (if you've read the books, you'll know what I mean), but the series is as beautiful as it is dark.

Julian May, The Saga of the Pliocene Exiles:

Image

Time travel, aliens, psychic powers, feudalism, dynastic intrigue, Celtic mythology, the Zanclean flood; you name it, this has got it. Would push what's feasible via special effects to the limit, but wow, would it be worth it; a Game of Thrones/X-Men hybrid, set in Europe six million years ago.

Mate, you are a legend, 2 of the best series I have ever read, and would give my left testicle to see in a TV mini series! :thumbup:

Would like to see more Dan Starkey by Colin Bateman on the tv, think it could work very well. There's only a film of Divorcing Jack which is good but his adventures would translate well into a 1 hour series. Would dearly love to see Of wee sweetie mice and men filmed. Although it may be a little dated now

Straddled both sci-fi and non sci-fi genres with equal aplomb. I started with his Iain Banks works (read Wasp Factory in the late '80s when at Uni) before moving on to the sci-fi stuff starting with The Algebraist before ploughing through the culture series. A v. sad loss :-(

Or better yet a series on the Guards set of books - each season covering a different book.

A slightly more humorous version of GoTs. Never gets as dark, but would still have to be 15s at least.

Done by HBO. Would be awesome.

viggo mortensen as vimes obviously.
Viggo Mortensen as Vimes? What are you smoking?
Brendan Gleeson ftw.
See, that makes sense.
With one of his sons to play young Vimes. :nod:


The Sky productions of the various Discworld books were very enjoyable, but somewhat lights and whimsical; particularly for CoM and LF. I guess that's just a reflection of the writing style of those books.

A dark and gritty take on the Guards books would be outrageously good. Dragons, golems, vampires, zombies, Les Mis, properly chilling bad guys. Gold mine.

Much as I'd love to see it happen, the Culture books would be very hard to translate to screen. Plots and timelines jump back and forth too much and the aforementioned communication between Minds would be impossible to do justice to. Think of that bit in Age of Ultron where the non-corporeal Jarvis is talking Ultron. :uhoh:
Spoiler: show
Image
Also, the first heavy sci-fi story that I can think of which didn't translate well to the screen is Dune. :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh:


Some of the Culture stories would work better. Excession just wouldn't work, too much ship to ship banter. The hell scenes in Surface Detail with a decent budget could be absolutely hideous.

You can skip Silverthron altogether tbf. It really is just a standalone story and isn't really particularly good when compared to the others. It's only real purpose is to develop Jimmy the Hand as a character.

Magician would be f**king awesome though. And the battle for Armengar :shock: :o

There are rumours of Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicals being made into a TV series ( if you haven't read it , then do so, they are fantastic though is taking his bloody sweet time with the third book ).

:thumbup: Terry Pratchett

Not sure Iain Banks would work as the books don't really follow.

Peter Hamiltons Greg Mandel series would be epic, as would the Commonwealth saga ( need a massive budget for effects though with a while planet getting totalled ).

My only issue with the magician was after the first 3 books they got just a tad tedious with "yet another world ending crisis worse than the last one". Good books but not sure they'd work well for film.

Gemmell's Waylander would be brilliant though as a 3 film trilogy ( or even just legend )

Establishes more of a background for the moredhel, Murmandus and necromancy and establishes Pug's ability to use the Lesser Path, the Tsurani "Enemy" and introduces the Hadati properly.
