Peter Rosch | My Dead Friend Sarah (CreateSpace)

| Print |

Written by Andrea Braun Tuesday, 31 July 2012 20:28

It is giving nothing away to say that Sarah dies, considering the title says so, but when and how it happens and “whodunit” is the business of the book.

   

Mark Salisbury | Prometheus: The Art of the Film (Titan Books)

David Hughes | Tales From Development Hell (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Matthew Newlin Wednesday, 22 February 2012 12:41

The entire book is filled with interesting stories and frustrating endings for films that could have been terrific.
