  1. I wonder why Alan Dean Foster didn't write this one?

  2. Peter David is a great Sci-Fi author. Imzadi was a good book.

  3. he's gonna relese it on my birthdaaay! 10hi

  4. @Anonymous 3/16/2011 11:02 PM: Transformers3 production is quite cheap compared to previous two movies, they fired Alan Dean Foster too.

  5. you can't fire a freelance writer.

  6. Disappointed that Alan didn't write this one. I liked his writing style.

  7. Can't wait...although I think I'll read the book after I see the movie. Kinda spoiled ROTF for me by reading the book before seeing the movie.
