Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
1. Ray Bradbury and Andy Weir.
|The Original Martians|
After watching The Martian, my brother said that Bradbury would have LOVED the movie. I agree. He would have liked the book too.
2. Douglas Adams and David Duchovny.
I could see them write a witty, absurd SF story about a renegade detective solving mysteries in other dimensions. It would be filled with humor and tongue-in-cheek social commentary.
3. Arthur Clarke and Isaac Asimov
|The masters of hard science fiction|
Would have been fun to see these two giants try and collaborate.
4. Mary Shelley and H.G. Wells
|The grandparents of science fiction|
Building on Frankenstein and The Island of Dr. Moreau, they could have futher explored man's relationship with science and all the things that can go wrong.
5. Chris Carter and Rod Serling.
|The perfect TV- crossover ever written! (if only...)|
OK, I've moved to another medium, but I'd watch the crap out that episode.
6. Stephen Hawking and Sir Isaac Newton
|The two smartest people in the history of mankind? Very |
They could have written the answer to the Ultimate Question (and it wouldn't be "42")
7. Clifford D. Simak and Jo Walton
|Father of goblins and mother of dragons|
A pretty conventional choice, but I'm very curious as to how that book would have looked like.
8. M.T. Anderson and Suzanne Collins
|More YA dystopia, please!|
9. Cherie Priest and George Mann
|The only two steampunkers I know (for now)|
They could totally write a Transatlantic steampunk adventure with airships, spies and dangerous political games.
10. Octavia Butler and Stephen King
|Vampires, horror and the dark side of the human soul|
I could see it work.
So, who's on your list?
