Nope. UNDER THE DOME is coming back any day now. I’ve been seeing the commercials. »
All these theories are ridiculous. Everyone knows that the real D.B. Cooper was abducted by time-travelers from the future, as revealed by a novel I wrote a few years back:
I’m not sure about this, but maybe Caitlin didn’t want to reveal to Iris that she had already prepared an anti-shapeshifting serum. I mean, as far as Iris knows, the S.T.A.R. team is not in the business of capturing metahumans, right?
Or maybe the serum just wasn’t ready yet? Caitlin had mentioned a few minutes earlier… »
This is not just a Gothic thing, of course. Need I mention Scheherazade—and all the dead wives who preceded her, who were murdered after their wedding nights because the sultan’s very first wife was unfaithful?
Lesson: Always end your stories on a cliffhanger. »
To be clear, it’s not the words that are the issue. “Home to Dust” is a perfectly good title. It’s those particular words used as generic one-word titles that are apparently all too common.
True story: I once unimaginatively titled a STAR TREK novel “Paradise.” My editor pointed out that the the TREK novel preceding… »
On my to-read list: MAPLECROFT by Cherie Priest and WAKING UP NAKED IN STRANGE PLACES by Julie McGalliard.
But first I have to read (and edit) an upcoming novel by R.S. Belcher. »
Also, aside from Blade, we’ve barely scratched the surface of Marvel’s horror characters: Morbius, Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night, Satanna, Lilith, the Legion of Monsters, etc.
Yes, I know there was a bad, low-budget MAN-THING movie. We’re just going to ignore that the same way we pretend that the 1990 CAPTAIN AMERICA… »
Consider me intrigued . . . especially by the brief glimpse of Doom.
The previous FF movies worked as goofy, Silver Age fun, but, boy, did they drop the ball where Doom was concerned. I’m hoping for something better here. »
Love it! I picked up a boxed set of the original GAMERA movies recently, which I still haven't found time to watch! »
Exactly. PSYCHO is THE classic example of this trick, and possibly the originator of the bit. Nobody expected Janet Leigh, the apparent star of the movie, to get butchered in the shower early on . . .. »
Not quite the question asked, but possibly the most lyrical novelization I've ever read was Paul Monette's novelization of Herzog's "Nosteratu the Vampyre," which is all the more impressive with you consider that it's basically a novelization of a remake of a silent movie based (illegally) on another novel . . . . »
Last time I checked, the comic-book Atom still shrinks. And, yes, the TV version had darn well better start shrinking at some point. That's the Atom's whole schtick. An Atom who can't shrink is like a Flash who can't run or a Hawkman who can't fly . . .. »
I have a love/hate relationship with Track Changes when it comes to editing and revising manuscripts. Part of me still pines for the good old days of red pencils and Post-Its, but I'm gradually coming around to the idea that electronic editing has its advantages; I like being able to locate any new text or… »
The "something" buried under the flagstone is the dead baby, which Lizzie lies to Emma about later on. I'm guessing that the baby was Emma's since she pointedly ducked Adele's question about whether she had ever been with a man . . . . »
