    Midnight's Children had some fantastical elements in it. I think he's good at allegorical stories involving supernatural phenomenon. I think this could be quite good.

    I did not even try to read the book he wrote that got him the death threats (I love religions that make death threats, brings me closer to god) I heard it was somewhat unreadible. I hope the SF show is better and not one of those things that are so weird that most people don't even bother trying to watch it.
