J.J. Abrams, the man who has tenderized our brain meats with the mind-bending projects Lost and Fringe, is writing a novel. Well, not exactly. He’s teaming up with real novelist Doug Dorst to contribute to a novel, and it will probably rock our faces off.
There are no details to release about the project at this time, (shocker) but Michael Pietsch has some hype to add:
“Doug and J. J.’s story will explode the bonds of the novel in ways no book has ever done.”
I’ve got news for Piersch. Stephen King’s already done that with The Dark Tower. Don’t get me wrong, I like Abrams a lot. I’m excited to see a novel with his name attached to it; thanks to Chuck Hogan’s and Guillermo Del Toro’s The Strain books I have no doubt that a novel with Abram’s John Hancock on it can be entertaining. But that statement is more than a little ridiculously hyped up, especially considering it sounds like they haven’t even really gotten the project under way yet.
So what do you guys think? Are you excited? Shall we get this speculation train rolling and hypothesize what this book will be about? My vote is for alien zombie bunnies that hump your face in your sleep, impregnating your brain with larva that will burst from your skull in a xenomorph-type fashion.
