So apparently this book was based on an old school movie, and I must say I could really get that whole vibe. I'll be the first to admit that I'm no old school movie expert. The oldest movie I've seen is probably Casablanca or Gone with the Wind, and while I loved both, they are timeless classics. I'...

Every once in a while, as the mood strikes me, I like to indulge in those titles that are a bit odd . . . a bit different . . . a bit bizarre . . . and a bit freaky. These are books that don't get a lot of press, and which rarely get any retail shelf space. They're often an underground of sort of li...

This is right up my street - an overblown historical romp with intellectual overtones. Funny, serious, exciting and ridiculous. Loved it.

This tale is a rather unique look at both the giant monster genre (kaiju eiga) and b-movie history. The author obviously loves both, and he does get some great characterizations and pseudo-movie history into this book. I so wanted to like it more, but the general concept behind the main character, T...

The conflict between science and religion is the emotional backdrop of James Morrow's The Last Witchfinder, set in 17th century England during the heyday of the Parliamentary Witchcraft Act. The story itself is told through two characters; Jennet Stearne, whose father Walter is a well-known "witchpr...

Not too representative of the genre—people who're not already familiar with steampunk may be mistaken in their vision of the genre if they rely on the panel of short stories in this book. The stories range from okay to forgettable, and I regret that nothing in there really stood out for me.
