Legend of the Seeker Fans Asking Sam Raimi for a Movie

Fans of the hit television show Legend of the Seeker are still hopeful that a movie deal can be worked out. The show was cancelled in 2010 when the Tribune Company, forced into bankruptcy by a badly managed leveraged buyout, dropped its support for the syndicated show. Losing the Tribune stations cost Legend of the Seeker 1/3 of its American television market and the remaining 2/3 could not generate ratings high enough to keep the show in production. ABC Studios, which own the rights to the show (based on Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth novels), made a half-hearted attempt to find a network to pick up the show (they aimed for SyFy, which did a lousy job of testing the market).

Legend of the Seeker Fans Appeal to Sam Raimi Directly

Tolkien and Harry Potter at Dragon*Con

This Saturday, August 31, 2013, I will be joining several other people on a “Middle-earth and Harry Potter” fan track at Dragon*Con 2013 in Atlanta (the Website has been down several times for me so I apologize if it’s not working for you).

This marks the first year I will be returning to Dragon*Con as an “Attending Pro” in over 6 years. I was pleased to be invited to participate on a Tolkien fan panel. Of course, I started the Tolkien and Middle-earth fan track at Dragon*Con many years ago but as I moved farther away from Atlanta and depended on TheOneRing.Net more and more for support, it just made sense to ask them to take over management of the track.

Quick Roundup of Things Happening in the SF-Fandom Sphere

Due to extensive influenza January was a really bad month for me. I have unfortunately been slow to react to a few science fiction fandom activities and have had to neglect most of my Web activity.

Nonetheless, I wanted to note that Legend of the Seeker fans will celebrate Bridget Regan’s birthday this Sunday, February 3. Of course, that is Super Bowl day and we know millions of people will be watching the Super Bowl.
