The paperback edition of The Tiger and the Wolf is now on the shelves, and so I’m following my own recent tradition of dream-casting the not-at-all-happening movie of the film.Shadows of the Apt and Children of Time, would have difficulty translating to screen, I think – the former because of the high-concept axioms of the fantasy work, Art, Aptitude and the like, the latter because half the action takes place amongst giant spiders who communicate via interpretive dance. Tiger & Wolf, however, like Guns of the Dawn, feels more screen-ready. With sufficient budget to cover the transformations it could actually be a thing.

I’ll be doing a Spiderlight casting call soon enough, so any suggestions welcome.

Here we go, anyway: on with the casting.
