John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’: The Story of an SF Horror Game-Changer

Had the good fortune of seeing a rare 70mm edition of this classic film last week, [this is an excellent follow-up][link].

The Bone Mother

Amazon’s shipping robot has informed me that David Demchuk’s book, [The Bone Mother][pub], has shipped. I’m looking forward to it:

>Three neighboring villages on the Ukrainian/Romanian border are the final refuge for the last of the mythical creatures of Eastern Europe. Now, on the eve of the war that may eradicate their kind—and with the ruthless Night Police descending upon their sanctuary—they tell their stories and confront their destinies.
>Eerie and unsettling like the best fairy tales, these incisor-sharp portraits of ghosts, witches, sirens, and seers—and the mortals who live at their side and in their thrall—will chill your marrow and tear at your heart.

Sounds spooky. [Buy it on Amazon][store].
