While the themes remain poignant if familiar — money makes man corrupt, greed inspires acts of senselessness — the action, involving a hot pursuit via tow truck and a brutal bathroom beatdown, kept the enthusiastic audience ooh-ing and ah-ing throughout. Is there a certain setting or set of circumstances that help to move things along? The rear-window view of a murder next door? Starring: Joan Fontaine, Michael York, Melissa Sue Anderson and Paul Shenar (1986). We can also understand why this literature appeals so strongly to adolescents in the process of rebelling against authority and social conformity.

Willis, Suzanne J. “Rag and Bone Heart,” Phantazein.

Damn fine book, though, and a good suggestion. As well as featuring anthologies, Black Static #19 was the first issue in a long while to not include fiction from at least one female author (for the statistically minded, excluding the Campaign for Real Fear stories, we have published 110 stories over 19 issues, of which 28 have been by women, so 25%). We have essays from Ralph Waldo Emerson, the poetry of Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, John Keats, and Shakespeare's plays and sonnets and more.

Their time out of time allows each sojourner respite to work out his or her character-defining personal kink before an upbeat conclusion closer in spirit to Brigadoon (1954) than Tales from the Crypt (1972). The evocative atmosphere and enigmatic tone are standout traits of “True Detective.” Pizzolatto might not want to alter the mood much, though he could stand to dial back the nihilism. With a bit of inspiration from classic EC horror comics, this darkly funny, yet relentlessly creepy tale illustrates a lost art in today’s horror movies: What we don’t see is scarier than what we do.

If you were very, very lucky, you might get a Turok, Son of Stone in one of those bags or a Tragg of the Sky Gods.

We need up to 30 stories across the three books, to bring our selection of classic tales to a modern audience hungry for good reads. I’m wanting to see works that carry that same approach! It is well worth re-evaluation, an alien invasion film that is a model of economy and told with a stark effective tension Another low-budget monster movie for the Syfy Channel ...
