Colossus by D F Jones

One memorable sci-fi novel first published in 1966 is COLOSSUS by Dennis Feltham Jones, the story of a super-computer taking over the world. It was followed by two sequels and, a few years late, a feature film adaptation. The movie, 1970' s COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PROJECT, is one of my favorite sci-fi movies. Over time, it has become horribly dated in some details but the film is still eerily close to today's reality. Talk of a sequel--possibly with Will Smith--is heard from time to time.

  1. loved The Forbin Project as a kid. I remember being quite a fan of Eric Braeden. not sure exactly why. maybe it was because he was in Escape From the Planet of the Apes, too, and that was another film I loved around that time.

    good luck with the new blog, man. so far, pretty tasty.
