In the wake of all this Twilight Hoopla…

I cannot help but read this and think…

In 2002, the Warner Bros Television production company took out a 12-month option with the idea of making a television series based on the Guardians of Time Trilogy. A producer, director and a script for the first episode were commissioned. Unfortunately, when the 12 months option was due for renewal, the WB decided not to continue with the making of the series.


I am in no way inferring Twilight and its series of books don’t deserve the success it has received. I was just using it as an example of a great book which was lucky enough to have a film adapted from it. I’ve yet to read Twilight, and like the general public I knew little if nothing at all about it until the film was announced.

The Named, The Dark and The Key will always hold a special place in my heart and it pains me to think there’re people who haven’t read them – even heard of them. Just to think how it could have all been different… but I digress.
