Book Review
"A vindaloo of a gross-out ... Dream piles on dream, in an acid-house freak show ... a wicked romp through the decadent pop culture and sleazy habits of '80s London" -- so raved the British reviewers about this antic novel from award-winning Kim Newman. A tale of a fascinating family, with one of the most successfully surreal (you don't get confused or lose interest) climaxes I have encountered. This one is rich with dry humor, hooky like a pop song and yet horrific as well.

From Publishers Weekly
This sporadically gruesome and nearly always frightening horror tale is not for the squeamish or faint of heart, but readers enthralled by things that go bump in the night are in for a treat. When journalist Anne Nielson goes to London to investigate the death of her sister Judi, a...

From Publishers Weekly
In this worthy sequel to Horror: 100 Best Books (1988), prolific anthologist Jones (Shadows Over Innsmouth) and novelist Newman (Anno Dracula) have gathered 100 appreciative short essays on landmark horror titles by today's top writers and critics in the genre, from Robert Silverberg on Cyril de Tourneur's The Revenger's Tragedy (1607) to Tim Lebbon on Michael Marshall Smith's More Tomorrow & Other Stories (2003). Any work that inspires fear was fair game for selection, as evidenced by entries on such classics as Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, George Gissing's New Grub Street and George Orwell's 1984. Like its predecessor, this volume contains plenty of lively and candid commentary, such as British screenwriter Christopher Wicking's insider's view of the pitiful efforts to adapt H.P. Lovecraft to film in his...

Dr. Who

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
From 1963 to 1989 Doctor Who was a British TV institution. Over the years it developed a uniquely eccentric style, at once cosily familiar and cosmically terrifying. Many of its characters, creatures, and objects have become indelibly iconic: the Doctor and his assistants, the TARDIS, the Time Lords, and a nightmarish universe of monsters and villains.
The idea that the Doctor should have the power of regeneration was forced on the show's makers when William Hartnell, the original star, could not carry on. But the changing face of the Doctor became key to the evolution of the series and, for many, whole phases of life are summed up in the casting changes: Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and, in a one-off incarnation, Paul McGann. Even now, in the shape of...

Sight and Sound
"A book of rare sensitivity and charm."

Book Description
Released in 1943, Cat People was the first production from the unit set up by RKO to make low-cost, high-return horror movies. Producer Val Lewton was handed the title and ordered to come up with a film to fit. He and director Jacques Tourneur created an innovative picture about a Serbian emigree in New York (Simone Simon) who's convinced she's suffering from a hereditary curse that will transform her into a panther if her passions are aroused.
Kim Newman positions this 74-minute classic in terms of the horror film genre from which it emerges and against which it rebels. Through close analysis, he teases out the layers of meaning and intent that make this at once a supernatural drama and an unusual...


Back in the USSA

From Publishers Weekly
In the zany scenario of this alternative history of the 20th century, Russia didn't have a revolution, but the United States did, sparked by Teddy Roosevelt's death in a gun battle between the Rough Riders and striking meatpackers in 1912 Chicago. Soon Chairman Capone and the iron arm of the Federal Bureau of Ideology have remade the party of Eugene Debs in their own image. As the authors laboriously conceive it, the U.S. becomes a sort of simplified Eastern Bloc in which historical and pop-culture figures mingle with the fictional characters. Sometimes the rules of this transformation bend weirdly enough to create a kind of brief, madcap diversion, as when Buddy Holly tells how Howard Hughes and Jack Kerouac barnstormed across the USSA in the Spruce Goose, here a homemade biplane ("`I'll tell you what music was...

Book Description
What in contemporary cinema is a horror film and what is a science fiction movie? Blade Runner (1982) is as much film noir as science fiction, and it is a literary adaptation. The latest remake of The Mummy (1999) is more an effects fantasy or action/adventure than straightforward horror. Whatever your viewpoint, the best of these movies have generated cults and imitations and the worst have a wonderfully perverse appeal all of their own.
This new volume in the Sight and Sound readers series provides a varied and diverse overview of trends that have shaped sci-fi/horror in the last decade. It explores how recent films like The Fight Club and The Truman Show have impinged on more traditional territory and have tested the limits of conventional understandings of these...

Midwest Book Review
Variations on the classic Lovecraft tale of invasion in a small town capture the classic and the inspirational spin-offs from its publication, placing in one cover 17 linked stories by mostly English descendants of the original writer. This is an excellent and surprisingly diverse collection: highly recommended as an intriguing sampling; especially for Lovecraft fans.

Book Review
First published in 1988, Horror: The 100 Best Books has remained the only book of its kind: a solid (and entertaining) annotated reading list spanning the range of horror fiction from the 16th to the 20th century. The device of asking 100 horror, fantasy,and science fiction writers to write about their favorite horror books might seem at first to capture an idiosyncratic sample, but through diplomacy and diligence, editors Stephen Jones and Kim Newman succeeded in obtaining short essays on most (if not all) of the well-known classics, as well as many more lesser-knowns that are well worth discovering. Readers who follow up on these recommendations will find tips about books by writers mostly known for other genres--such as Iain Banks, Robert Holdstock, Lisa Tuttle, and David Morrell.
