Marcus Hearn | The Art of Hammer: Posters from the Archive of Hammer Films

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Thursday, 25 November 2010 21:29

To cop a line from the late Forrest J Ackerman, The Art of Hammer offers a feast for the horror fan. 

 

Rick Springfield | Late Late at Night (Simon & Schuster)

Written by Laura Hamlett Thursday, 18 November 2010 15:30

Really, Rick, you should have just kept it to yourself.

 

   

Paul Auster | Sunset Park (Henry Holt & Co.)

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Tuesday, 09 November 2010 22:50

Equally annoying, this novel seems determined always to tell and never to show, a choice that makes for effortless reading but leaves very little impression once you’ve finished.

 

Lisa Birnbach | True Prep

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Monday, 25 October 2010 13:55

True Prep is dutiful where The Official Preppy Handbook was cheeky and seems more interested in promoting the virtues of prep-dom than taking a satirical look at its foibles.

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Monday, 25 October 2010 10:13

Ellen Datlow, ed. | Lovecraft Unbound: Twenty Stories

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Monday, 10 May 2010 16:21

The 20 stories in the collection concentrate on capturing that familiar feeling of dread and the sense that there’s more to the world than you ever imagined, and most of what’s out there is not in the least concerned with your welfare.

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Monday, 29 March 2010 13:17

Whether you’re interested in classic or modern films, you can learn a lot from Hollywood Lighting.

 

Dan Simmons | Carrion Comfort

| Print |

Written by Jesse Gernigin Tuesday, 23 February 2010 17:08

The book is a freeze-frame of style that harkens back to Simmon's earlier Steven King-like works.

Edison’s Frankenstein will be of most interest to fans of horror film and early cinema.
