The Last of Robin Hood

A title as good as "The Last of Robin Hood" deserves a better movie. In fact, it deserves a good movie.

The Thinking Molecules of Titan: Fourth Batch of Four Endings

Earlier this summer, we invited you to finish a science fiction story Roger was toying with when he passed away. We got dozens of submissions, from light-hearted set-ups for puns Roger would have loved to more serious explorations of the kinds of themes that drew Roger to science fiction in the first place. We passed along the entries to our pal Krishna Bala Shenoi, whose wonderful artwork brought Roger's beginning of the story to life. He's been reading them and creating illustrations as the muse strikes. So far, we've posted sixteen endings. Here are four more, bringing us to twenty endings. Now it's time to start voting! Each time we post a new selection of endings, we want you to vote on your favorite. We'll keep you posted on which endings are winning in the polls, but of course in our hearts they're all winners for taking up the challenge to finish the story.

Each week we'll post more, and we'll let you vote for a week on your favorite out of each week's endings. We will give you four at a time until we are done. We got nearly thirteen hundred votes in the first three rounds of polling! The winner of the first batch of eight was Ariel Gonzales, whose ending you can read here. In the next batch of four, the winner was Jeremy Gable, whose ending you can read here. In last week's batch of four, the winner was Andreas Belgun, whose ending you can read here. Once we've published all the endings, we'll bring back the winners from each week's voting for a final round.

Check out these endings from Jeffrey Burton, Dawn Oshiro, Sid P and Berk Torun. Then vote on your favorite!

Which of these four endings for "The Thinking Molecules of Titan" is your favorite?
