Novels being adapted into books dates back to the dawn of cinema. It makes sense since it guarantees an audience of fans who love to see their beloved story put to the big screen.
One genre that gets plenty of love from Hollywood is science-fiction. Many of the most celebrated films were adapted from famous sci-fi works, including Blade Runner, based on Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?; Things to Come, based on HG Wells' The Shape of Things To Come; and War of the Worlds, also based on an HG Wells piece. 2001: A Space Odyssey deserves a special mention too, but the book and movie were created at the same time.
