Book Reviews

Marcus Hearn | The Hammer Vault: Treasures from the Archive of Hammer Films (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Friday, 06 January 2012 08:44

Each entry is copiously illustrated with production photos, posters, and related materials, giving you a real feel for the spirit of each film.

 

Tyler McMahon | How the Mistakes Were Made (St. Martin’s Griffin)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Thursday, 22 December 2011 11:44

book mistakesHow the Mistakes Were Made gets it all right: the gritty underground music scene, the big-name label games, the discord that invariably springs from band members.

   

Allison Baggio | Girl in Shades (ECW Press)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Thursday, 22 December 2011 11:41

book shadesWhile Girl in Shades is decently written and at times original, it is often unsatisfying and ultimately frustrating.

 

Frank DeCaro | The Dead Celebrity Cookbook (HCI)

| Print |

Written by Andrea Braun Monday, 12 December 2011 15:16

book decaroOnce in a while, you find a recipe like “John Wayne’s Favorite Casserole,” and know instantly why he had heart disease and cancer.

 

   

Wendy Dager | I Murdered the PTA (Zumaya Enigma)

| Print |

Written by Gordon Hopkins Wednesday, 21 September 2011 19:27

It is Daphne’s take on people and events, rather than the events or people themselves, which is funny.

 

Otto Penzler (ed.) | Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! (Vintage)

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Sunday, 18 September 2011 20:24

Thinking in bulk is a wise approach because Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! is such a mix of the well-known and the obscure, the masterful and the tedious, that it's difficult to say much about it in general.

   

Jim Knipfel | The Blow-Off (Simon & Schuster)

| Print |

Written by Gordon Hopkins Monday, 22 August 2011 19:43

The populace of the Big Apple, famous for being fearless and intolerant, would certainly never put up with the government moving in and curtailing freedoms for the sake of security. These days, of course, we know better.

 

Tess Gerritsen | The Silent Girl (Ballantine)

| Print |

Written by Gordon Hopkins Tuesday, 02 August 2011 20:28

Some folks might be turned off by the supernatural element of the story, whether or not it turns out to be just a guy in a suit. Of course, readers looking for a realistic police procedural probably aren’t reading Tess Gerritsen anyway.

   

Ben Mezrich | Sex on the Moon (Doubleday)

| Print |

Written by Gordon Hopkins Monday, 11 July 2011 17:30

Sex on the Moon is an extremely cinematic true story that reads like a cross between Ocean’s Eleven and Real Genius.

 

Gallery 1988 | Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Pete Timmermann Tuesday, 05 July 2011 20:22

What it ultimately comes down to, though, is that you’ll probably like the art inspired by films you like and you won’t like the art inspired by the films you don’t like.

   

Vic Armstrong | The True Adventures of the World’s Greatest Stuntman: My life as Indiana Jones, James Bond, Superman and other movie heroes (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Matthew F. Newlin Wednesday, 25 May 2011 19:06

Never one to back down from any stunt, no matter how dangerous or ill-advised, Armstrong has earned the respect of many of the greatest filmmakers and actors working today.

 

Denis Meikle | Johnny Depp: A Kind of Illusion (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Matthew F. Newlin Monday, 09 May 2011 15:40

It is also hard to take seriously an author who gets so many facts so very wrong.
