I resent being called average! I am also into Science fiction and Fantasy. Some of my favorite authors are Heinlein, Author C. Clark, Ed Greenwood, Naomi Novik, Larry Niven, Christine Feehan, R.A. Salvatore, Gayle Greeno, Piers Anthony, Christopher Paolini, J. K. Rowling, Dean Koontz, Anne Rice, and my all time favorite Anne Mccaffrey.
I think that the Pern series would make a great anime series. There is no way that it could be done in a movie, but it would make an excellent anime. You have good guy, bad guys, a threat from outer space, love and romance, intrigue and best of all-DRAGONS!
another author's work that would make great movies is Christine Feehan's. especially the Carpathian series. anyone of them would make a great movie. Carpathian's are beings that drink blood to survive but they have souls and do not kill or terrorize humans if they can help it. They protect the humans by hunting down and destroying vampires. They have only one soul mate, They mate for life and are able to have children. Vampires are Carpathians who have become power hungry and have lost their soul and ability to love. They are hunted down and destroyed at all cost.
