Gonna Raise Hail
Nichelle Nichols and Kristen Bell will appear on Heroes in the new season, which starts Sept. 24. That's an actress from the 1960s and one from the 2000s. To complete the set they need Suzanne Somers from the 1970s, Soleil Moon "Punky Brewster" Frye from the 1980s, and from the 1990s, I don't know. Blossom?
Nichols is happy to have a job where she won't have to kiss William Shatner. Yet.
RevolutionSF's Rick Klaw and Peggy Hailey have hosted the Dark Forces book group monthly for over six years, talking about dark fantasy, horror, and "just outright oddball" books.

Needless Remake Update
About sixteen movies ago, Bryan Singer was going to do a Logan's Run
movie after he finished one of the X-Men
movies. But now someone we've never heard of will do it. Tim Sexton, writer of Children of Men
will write it, and supposedly it's like the novel, and less like the movie. But what about the 1977 TV series with the dude from Trapper John M.D.
and the girl from one of the Captain America
movies? How is it going to compare to that, people? How?!
