Petitioning Estate of John William Steakley Jr. and 3 others

John Steakley's Armor. Someone please find the film rights for the fans.


0 have signed. Let’s get to 100.

This is an unusual cause.  I'm a blogger, I wrote an article about an old science fiction novel.  Fans of that novel are so obsessed that they hound me to this day, demanding to know what happened to the rumored movie rights and sequel drafts.  The author, John Steakley, unfortunately passed away in 2010.  I've done a bit of sleuthing and annoyed several people with emails to little avail.  The internet legend is that he had the rights buried with him.

This is my most recent attempt to find these fans some closure.  I personally love this book and think it would make a great movie.  From what I've found, there apparently were some negotiations about a movie or mini-series on the then Sci Fi Channel (now SyFy).  So far I've been rewarded with canned responses from all those involved.

Here's hoping as many people sign this as read the article from 6 years ago on my blog.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Estate of John William Steakley Jr.
  • DAW Books
  • Penguin Books
  • SyFy/NBC Universal
