Halfway through watching 'Final Days of Planet Earth'. A lunar mission beings back an alien insect race to earth. That immediately conjures up images of what the movie would be like - but they're off the mark this time. It's wonderfully restrained as far as the giant-monstrous-insects-destroying-cities-killing-people-and-generally-causing havoc angle is concerned. In fact, the story completely focuses on the conspiracy angle - authorities versus a small group of people.
Bought 'The dreams our stuff is made of' - Thomas M. Disch.
Currently reading The Weapon Makers (van Vogt) and The God Delusion (Dawkins).
Gotta get back to the movie.
