Worldwatch Institute | 2011 State of the World: Innovations that Nourish the Planet

| Print |

Written by Stephen Fairbanks Friday, 21 January 2011 08:14

“We’re not telling people or governments or farmers what to do. We’re learning from them and we’re highlighting the work that’s being done on the ground to help alleviate hunger and poverty.”


Marcus Hearn | The Avengers: A Celebration: 50 Years of a Television Classic

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Thursday, 16 December 2010 17:09

It’s a large-format, beautifully-produced volume loaded with production and publicity stills and other visual memorabilia from the show along with to-the-point text by Marcus Hearn that explains the show’s somewhat convoluted production history and puts the pictures in context.



Mickey Leigh with Legs McNeil | I Slept With Joey Ramone: A Punk Rock Family Memoir (Touchstone)

| Print |

Written by Jason Neubauer Wednesday, 01 December 2010 02:05

Whatever name the demons went by, they shaped a tale that manages to leave the reader with a feeling that Joey left his life not in submission to them, but after having conquered them.


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)

| Print |

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.


Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt | Voice-Over Voice Actor: What It’s Like Behind the Mic

| Print |

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

Even if you have no aspirations towards a career in voice-over, there’s a lot you can learn from this book.


Steve Henry | 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles of St. Louis

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Wednesday, 06 October 2010 21:49

60 Hikes is a refreshing and exciting guide to the beautiful world of nature surrounding our fair city.

Written by Matthew F. Newlin Thursday, 10 June 2010 11:40

Writings on Bruce Willis, Badass Cinema and Other Important Topics


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.



Patrick Keating | Hollywood Lighting from the Silent Era to Film Noir

| Print |

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.
