I used to have a book that was all short stories made into movies. I know the story for Death Race 2000 and I think The Running Man were in there. Does anyone remember what it was called. I would like to get it again.
You're probably thinking of Reel Future
Reel Future is an anthology of stories on which films were made, including:
- "The Racer" (Death Race 2000) by Ib Melchior
- "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" (They Live!) by Ray Nelson
- "Who Goes There?" (The Thing) by John W. Campbell, Jr.
And others. Each story had a little blurb about how it came to be made into a film, and I recall there were some black & white photos from the films as well.
The Running Man was based on a novella by Richard Bachman (a.k.a. Stephen King), which seems to have only been published with other books by "Bachman".
