Spike Lee's been in the news for the wrong reasons lately, but the Miracle at St. Anna trailer is interesting enough to help everyone move on. Now the announcement that Spike has optioned the book The Time Traveler: One Man's Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality, by one of America's first black Ph.Ds in theoretical physics, might wipe the slate clean. While a memoir, not sci-fi, the book has certain fantastic leanings. Author Ronald Mallett's father died when he was ten, and young Ron soon decided he'd build a time machine to save his father. Following through became a lifelong obsession; he's still working on it (and funded on the project!) now.
