Burn Notice

I was watching Burn Notice when I realised that the format was familiar, not familiar as in it plays with tropes established from classic spy fiction but familiar like something I’d just finished watching moments before. Burn Notice is Men In Trees with guns. Watch both pilots back to back and see if I’m wrong.

    Dear Mr Aaronovitch,Please pardon my contacting you like this, but I saw on the “Rocketpunk Manifesto” blog that you are writing some short stories a series of short stories “set in an era when spacers were real spacers and rockets landed on their fins the way god (and Robert Heinlein) intended” (I see you frequent the Masten Space site too!) Is there any chance of letting us know what the background will be like – this sounds like a series that I want to read!Grif IngramPS: The bit about Willesden Green was interesting, too – I now have an urge to visit the place (I may never be seen again – i may swim down one of those canals and wind up marrying a Martian Princess!)Grif Ingram
