New V Sequel

For those (like me) who are big fans of the 1980s scifi miniseries V, original creator Kenneth Johnson will release a new novel in October, V: The Second Generation, which will be a sequel to the original miniseries (yay), but will ignore the second miniseries and subsequent TV series (boo, but understandable as he got kicked out).

The novel will feature old and new characters, and interest is hoped to drive either an adaption of it or a remake of the original as a TV movie. Either way I’ll be rewatching all the series before then so I can compare that to the new novel, as well as the never filmed script for V: The Next Chapter/Rebirth, by J. Michael Straczynski – which I got a copy of from him via eBay (I probably won’t reread all the booksor comics now).
