Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

WinnieTheWoot asked me to grab a book for her to read while she ate breakfast so I grabbed Michael Flynn’s Eifelheim and she asked me why I’m always suggesting she read it.


I told her it’s about aliens crash-landing in medieval Germany or if she wanted the high concept pitch it’s “District 9 meets Game of Thrones.” It’s actually nothing at all like that but I can easily see a director selling to a studio in those terms.

Your challenge this Sunday is to give me your best high concept pitches for books you want to turn into movies.
