The first time I read Silence of the Lambs, I actually used an Advance Reader's Copy. While there probably weren't any major changes made after publication, it did feel like I was getting to read some sneaky, secret version.
And I think some elements of the Hannibal book to film adaptation suffered the Stephen King problem. All sorts of things would be horrific in real life, but are just silly on screen. And books not only allow you to imagine the worst possible outcome, but they can also draw direct connections between concepts, rather than having to infer them through music and shot composition. Of course, if the author does it right, it'll sneak in just as subtly. :3
Also, a little bit more color on this page. Dunno how often I plan to do that. I just liked those green lights and didn't want to waste them.
Half expected the non-corpse to be a descendant of Pickman.
Right so we've got Clockwork Orange, Frankenstein, and Hannibal. I'm not sure why Hannibal is in there, but okay. O.o
Where did the masks go?
@Merrsharr: What the hell is wrong with me? Thanks for catching that, I'll get it fixed right now.
Why don't the scientists wear masks?
@shylarah: They don't need to. :3
