I just watched Riverworld on the SciFi Channel, and boy was I surprised at how good it was. I had no idea this movie was in the works until it popped up in my TiVo schedule. I read the Riverworld novels probably 30 years ago, and the movie wrenched loose some deep memories of one of my favorite reading experiences of my youth. Now I’ve got to go dig up my old paperbacks, I’ve got them stored away with all my classic SF collection.

According to the SciFi.com page, a huge amount of supplementary Riverworld material was published that I never knew about. Now this is a rare pleasure, one of the best movie adaptations of a SF novel I’ve ever seen, plus tons of new chapters to read, plus a tantalizing hint of censored material. Time to hit the bookstore.
