Space Prison

by Tom Godwin

I came to know this book under it's alternate title as "The Survivors" when my Dad introduced it to me almost 20 years ago. He and I both agree after several readings that this is the best Science Fiction novel we have ever read out of countless other sci-fi stories. The story of human struggle, survival, and determination is a familar theme we have come to know in some similar works. However the most compelling aspect of this story is the goal of survival and redemption strengthings with each passing generation and allows the last generation to develope the tools and cunning to draw their persucutors back to them for ultimate justice. This book was a great influence on me for creative reasons and I see from reading the reviews that it appealed to most of you as well. My Dad and I have agreed for years that we would like to see this novel be developed into major motion picture because we believe it would make a great film provided if it stayed true to Godwin's original work and was produced by Steven Spielberg or Gearge Lucas. Does someone have their phone numbers? Of course writing a screenplay would be a challenging undertaking due to certain story elements, such as the 200 year span in time but it could be done right with the right people. Please share your views and opinions on such an idea.
