Amazon Is Developing a Bonanza of Genre Titles: Ringworld, Snow Crash, and Lazarus

Amazon just announced a virtual land grab of genre titles that it’s putting into development: Larry Niven’s scifi classic Ringworld; Neal Stephenson’s cult classic Snow Crash; and Greg Rucka’s acclaimed comic Lazarus. In a perfect world, we could be seeing all three made into drama series.

As Deadline reports, the announcement comes as the streaming network is hoping to land a “big-scope genre drama series in the mold of Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead.” There aren’t too many details yet, but the standout points include: the Ringworld project will likely draw not just from Niven’s 1970 original, but other books in the series; Rucka will be adapting Lazarus himself from page to screen; and Snow Crash will be co-produced by Joe Cornish, who at one time had the project on his own feature-directing slate.

This is all very exciting news for fans of scifi lit, but we gotta ask: Which adaptation do most you hope makes it to Amazon—and which do you think is most likely to succeed?

Ringworld deserves more attention. I can’t imagine how they are going to do it visually but I want to find out.
