    Of his series, I like Hawkmoon the least. That said... there’s no question that it would make the better tv show to me. There’s enough characters to talk. Elric’s internal monologue wouldn’t translate to screen well. Same with Daker/Erekose. And while I love Corum.... again, not enough characters. So yeah, I agree. Hawkmoon would work well.

      The question is though - in today's corporate media landscape is the adaptation of beloved literary works worth the risk of them being systematically mutilated to fit the (assumed) preferences of "the targeted viewer base demographic" ...never mind what the actual book fans would desire in a screen adaptation?

      One only has to consider the oncoming mudslide that is "The Rings of Power" LoTR prequel series. Amazon and Tolkien? - truly a marriage made in Limbo!
