Gosh yes, I'd pay big bucks to see Miles Vorkosigan on the big screen. Ann Aguirre's Sirantha Jax series would be good, too....
Citizen of the Galaxy was the first Heinlein novel I ever read...I was babysitting for an Army dentist when I lived in Germany...he lived so far out in the Economy that he didn't get the Armed Forces Network, so he lent it to me....I'll have to check out some of the others....

Maybe that's the really scary part...that we can't change who we are...maybe the horror story is really our way of reassuring ourselves that the Universe DOESN'T care about us...because it did care, then why do we get cancer, lose our job and can't find a new one, have our children turn out to be egotistical actors who get high and act like Charlie Sheen...."You think you've got it bad? Well, at least you don't have a car that's come to life and likes to kill people coming after you." Things don't realistically go bump in the night...99.999999% of the time, you hear a bump in the night and it's the dog walking into the coffee table. Ahhh, but that 0.000001% is what makes getting out of bed and investigating so scary. We like to scare ourselves....helps us put our lives in perspective. It's like romance novels...the Hot person never talks to the Average person, has Hot Sex (every single time), falls in love with them and gets married...even the commitment-phobes get married...and usually in under 150 pages...
