Default Bill Pearson (UK Modelmaker) autobiography interest?

Hi All,

I'm helping out a friend of mine; Bill Pearson and making this post to see how much interest there would be in something he's working on. For those who don't know, Bill has been a modelshop supervisor, and model & prop maker working in the feature film & TV industry around the world for over forty years, working on a long list of features including ‘Alien’, ‘Flash Gordon’, ‘Outland’, 'Lost In Space', 'Battlefield Earth', 'Thunderbirds The Movie', 'Alien Vs Predator', 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy', 'Casino Royale', 'Moon', 'Gravity', 'Prometheus', and many cult Sci-Fi TV shows like Dr.Who, Tenko, Blake's 7, Horizon, Squadron, Shackleton, Red Dwarf Series' 4, 8 9, 10 & 11, and Gerry Anderson's Space Precinct.

Bill's been working on an autobiography with a Dictaphone over the last 6 months or so, and is currently at 61 hours of material. It's all in the early stages and needs some careful work in terms of publishing as some of the material is very adult in nature, not a book for kids, while other stuff may be found libelous (even if it is the truth!). So as a starting point he's asked me to publish two of his own unproduced scripts as E-Books on Amazon Kindle just to see how much interest there is. The two scripts are 'The Zone' & 'Tales Of Tomorrow'. 'Tales Of Tomorrow' was written in 1996 as a Science Fiction anthology movie script.

'The Zone' was written back in 1996, and is set in the (back then) future year of 2014, in a battle ravaged landscape. Amid fierce explosions, three soldiers deactivate an electrified fence and enter "The Zone". As they proceed we learn more of them and the Britain they live in. The War is raging in a sectioned off area of rural England, known as "The Zone". After 17 years of fighting, the enemy's identity and origin still remains a mystery.

It would be interesting to hear people's thoughts on this?

No harm in trying but the only problem is there's so many sci fi stories around now it's very hard to stand out and be original. The autobiography has potential to be interesting.
