IT'S ONLY A RUMOUR but.................

On the rumour mill are hints that Stephen Spielberg and Ron Howard are making a western.
Cowboys and Indians and......aliens. The idea of cowboys and indians joining forces to fight an alien swarm sounds a bit far fetched.
On the other hand if the film is a success and leads to more westerns being made then I guess I won't protest too loudly.

This kind of thing was done in the 60s in comics, if I recall. Then there were the cowboys in the Valley of Gwangi or something similar.
And of course the beginning of ER Burroughs' classic Martian series began in the Old West...

I hope this goes ahead - I wonder what Mr Hale will say about the Vulcans in my next novel?
