1  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Harlan Ellison stroke on: October 18, 2014, 03:31:15 PM
Glad to hear the good news, but there is still the matter of medical expenses. I wonder if Harlan has insurance? Even with it, a hospital stay can be expensive.

If anyone really cares and wants to help, I suggest buying a book. Yes, they are overpriced paperbacks, and I've avoided buying any thus far, but I got one this evening. I opted for None of the Above, which is Harlan's unproduced screenplay for Spinrad's Bug Jack Barron.


  At his age Harlan should have medicare, and I believe he's smart enough to opt for additional insurance that helps to cover what medicare doesn't, but I'm sure he can use all the money he can get to cover incidentals. I myself bought four of his over sized paperbacks last month, I believe. And few more last year. They are a bit pricey, but at least (I assume) Harlan gets a nice chunk of the profits.

I'm very much looking forward to this months release of The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire) by George R. R. Martin, Elio Garcia, and Linda Antonsson. http://www.powells.com/biblio/62-9780553805444-0.

Just got off the phone with Harlan and he sounded great.  If you did not know he had a stroke you probably would not know at least by phone conversation.  He says he should be out of the hospital in a week with physical therapy continuing at home.


That's awesome news! Thanks for the update, Jim.

Oh, no! That is terrible news. I'll be sending positive thoughts to Harlan and Susan. I hope he pulls through.

5  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Amazon has a Horror ebook sale going on in honor of Halloween.. on: October 08, 2014, 12:18:29 PM

Hey, gang. Just thought I'd let everyone know that Amazon has a number of Horror titles on sale for $1.99 in honor of Halloween. It looks like all the titles derive from the former Leisure Horror line. So, like many of you I have already bought these books at one time, but for anyone who hasn't , you might want to check out the sale. http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=s9_al_bw_feat?ie=UTF8&docId=1002990841&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-12&pf_rd_r=0ZTXFNRF4C0TBS9DMBF7&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1944669162&pf_rd_i=8794559011

Happy Birthday, Jack! Shocked

I miss 'em, too. I used to get The Horror Show from B. Dalton Books, in the mall near where I used to live. There were two bookstores there. The Horror Show, and WaldenBooks. I always preferred B. Dalton, but it closed down first. Walden followed a few years later.

I miss having bookstores in malls. I used to work in a local mall in my teens, and we had a B.Dalton and a Waldenbooks too. And I always preferred B. Dalton as well. They had a much better selection.

Rachael McAdams has been cast in a lead role. This makes me happy. I've had a crush on her for years. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=123331


9  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Laird Barron's The Imago Sequence ebook on sale for $1.99 on: September 25, 2014, 08:34:03 AM

Just a heads up for anyone wanting to give Laird Barron's short stories a try. The Imago Sequence is an interesting collection of weird fiction, and a great intro to Barron's work. http://www.amazon.com/Imago-Sequence-Laird-Barron-ebook/dp/B0070YQT4A/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=8-1&qid=1411658733

Oh, God, I can't fucking stand either one of them. Maybe they'll win me over like McConaughy did...I couldn't stand him, either, before TRUE DETECTIVE.

Farrell won me over with In Bruges, and he did a great job in the movie Saving Mr. Banks. Even if the movie itself was just a whitewashing of Disney, instead of a closer to the truth bio-pic about the author of Mary Poppins.


11  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / HBO's True Detective Season 2 has cast... on: September 23, 2014, 11:49:46 AM

It looks like True Detective Season 2 has found two cast members. Colin Farrell, who's long been rumored is now officially cast. And Vince Vaughn has also been added to the cast. I'm not sure how I feel about the Vaughn casting yet, but I'm excited about Farrell. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=123252

What do you all think?


12  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: First Day in Hell on: September 22, 2014, 07:26:12 PM

Ah, you had me for a moment. I was like, "Oh shit, not more trouble for Mark!"  Ya Bastard.  Huh

That's awesome! Sounds like losing your other job was a blessing in disguise.  Grin


13  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Norman Spinrad's He Walked Among Us on: September 20, 2014, 10:00:43 AM

Bug Jack Barron. A 1969 novel that predicted the popularity of reality TV. It is outrageous, courageous, and boldly original. Ellison write an unproduced screenplay for it. Damn it.

I just bought the book version of Ellison's unproduced screenplay for Bug Jack Barron, titled NONE OF THE ABOVE. I picked it up on sale recently at HarlanEllisonBooks.com. It has an introduction by Leonard Maltin.  http://www.harlanellisonbooks.com/project/none-of-the-above/

Awesome news, Mark! Congrats! I'm sure you'll be able to adjust to the circumstances at the new job, but it sounds like it'll be a tough transition. Like you said, you're smart and you'll catch on. Best of luck my friend.


15  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Cool, new acquisitions -- brag about them here! on: September 19, 2014, 11:48:30 AM

I got a nice haul at a library sale last weekend. The two Arkham house books were only $2.00 each! I showed up to the sale after it had been going on for a few hours, and no one had grabbed those two Arkhams. I just wonder if I missed out on some other AH editions by arriving so late. Oh well.
