Dorothy Fontana, story editor for Star Trek, once told me that screenwriters envy prose writers for that. I can write 3 words: "The world ended." To do that on screen costs millions of dollars.

@IMAOZI: SF and fantasy readers are also welcome at the Science Fiction/Fantasy Atheists group.

I usually read Sci-Fi but I did read The DaVinci Code and saw the movie. I was disappointed with the movie though. My imagination is always better that the directors.

I'm currently reading The Shock Doctrine (The Rise of Disaster Capitalism) By: Naomi Klein. This book is intense.

The library at my University has all of Dawkins' work. Great stuff. I actually listened to The Audio Book of the God Delusion which was cool since it's was read by both Richard and his wife.

I just started reading "Atheist Universe" by David Mills. It is a great intro into Atheism and a very easy read.

Books, I can't say enough about them. I can never have to many and I always have one with me. I've managed to make the book trade the focus of my Masters Degree research. I enjoy a drink like most folks, but books are my drug of choice

I invite any reviews by freethinkers of my book Life After Faith. I am considering publishing through Create Space since publishers are not calling me (smile). Currently reading Carl Sagan's classic, "The Varieties of Scientific Experience." "There is an enormous amount we do not know; there is a tiny amount that we do. But what we do understand brings us face to face with an awesome cosmos that is simply different from the cosmos of our pious ancestors."

Steambath was indeed a PBS production. I saw it when it was first aired. It was part of a series of plays they taped called Hollywood Television Theater (much like they do Masterpiece Theater today). Two other outstanding productions they did in that series were The Andersonville Trial with William Shatner and Richard Basehaart (directed by George C. Scott, no less) and The Lady's Not for Burning starring Richard Chamberlain. All three of those plays blew me away. (I think Andersonville is also available on DVD; the Chamberlain production of Burning doesn't seem to be--rights issues, I'll bet--but I understand there are other versions.)

Steambath started its life as an off-Broadway play by Bruce Jay Friedman. I understand (a very young) Hector Elizondo was in the original cast as as the steambath attendant, one of the world's great roles, and I'll bet he was superb. Jose Perez plays that role in the PBS production, and my former wife lusted after him like nobody's business.

I envy you getting to see it for the first time.

If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend the PBS production of Steambath, available on DVD. It's a very wicked and funny satire oin god. It's not a book, buy hey--plays are literature, too.
