"HELLO AMERICA will be produced into a movie with Ridley Scott! The novel takes place a century after America's financial collapse and abandonment by its people, when a group of pioneers return to the ruins of the "New World" on a voyage of rediscovery. The journey through a ravaged wasteland brings hazards at every turn to the crew, culminating in a showdown with a charismatic leader who plans to unleash his nuclear arsenal against anyone who threatens his power perch"

That sounds so terrible. Bad following bad down the big sucking hole of bad.

Be fair. There's Burrough's The Lost Continent/Beyond Thirty, in which the US doesn't intervene in WWI, and Europe fights itself into savagery, and Hubbard's Final Blackout, in which the US doesn't intervene in WWII, and the Euros revert to barbarism. So it's our turn. But you never could have sold me a J.G. Ballard book, and these days, you couldn't get me into a Ridley Scott movie.

Fortunately, I still have a really good Blade Runner set.
