Pebble in the Sky (Galactic Empire #3) by Isaac Asimov

One moment Joseph Schwartz is a happily retired tailor in 1949 Chicago. The next hes a helpless stranger on Earth during the heyday of the first Galactic Empire. Earth, he soon learns, is a backwater, just a pebble in the sky, despised by all the other 200 million planets of the Empire because its people dare to claim its the original home of man. And Earth is poor, with great areas of radioactivity ruining much of its soil--so poor that everyone is sentenced to death at the age of sixty.

Joseph Schwartz is sixty-two.

This is young Isaac Asimovs first novel, full of wonders and ideas, the book that launched the novels of the Galactic Empire, culminating in the Foundation books and novels. It is also one of that select group of SF adventures that since the early 1950s has hooked generations of teenagers on reading science fiction. This is Golden Age SF at its finest.

Paul Weller’s music inspires forthcoming UK Mod film

A NEW modern day mod movie, based on the songs of Paul Weller, is to be released in homage to the 70s cult classic Quadrophenia, which celebrated its 40th anniversary at the weekend. The new scooter-based Brit movie comes four decades since the original iconic film - which was based on The Who's rock opera album - first hit the screens in September Stars such as Phil Daniels, Sting and Leslie Ash, celebrated this weekend to mark the anniversary of the classic that charted the coming of age of a teenage Mod in the s. The new film, a modern-day road movie about Mods, has the backing of former The Jam and Style Council legend Paul Weller, whose songs are the basis of the movie. Patsy Kensit plays a rich and glamorous former Modette mother in the film, alongside other cast members such as Ricci Harnett and Jessie Birdsall - who starred in the original Quadrophenia as a violent Rocker. Many locations used in Quadrophenia appear in the new film - including the infamous alley in Brighton where a young Leslie Ash has sex with Daniels - as well a large number of Lambrettas and scooters which played such a pivotal part in the original film. One moving scene includes hundreds of scooter-driving Mod mourners forming a funeral cortege for one of the group's main 'Faces' who sadly dies.

I'm a film director, I love Paul Weller's music and I love films. And it was after meeting Paul after a gig in Cork where the idea of combining the two started to take shape. Paul Weller was one of my main inspirations when I started to write scripts. On the plane home from Cork, an idea started to form, about a teenager called John who is devastated by the death of his father, a seemingly simple postman who delivered his letters on a classic Lambretta, and how John seeks to honour him by scattering his ashes into the sea at Brighton, spiritual home of the Mod's. It's a scooter run of discovery as John learns more about his father than he ever did when he was alive.
