I could not have asked for a better review of THE FLY book from FrightFest Gore in the Store. I don’t know the reviewer, John Upton, personally or professionally – but I need to buy him a drink one day.
Every author needs to be prepared for a bad review. Luckily for me, I got this one instead. Thank you to Niina Doherty for her kind words (and impeccable taste).
For anyone who may be a debutante when it comes to The Projection Booth, Mike does a deep-dive dissection of cinema that, just like my book, looks at one film per episode then examines it with a panel of co-hosts (Mike being the constant). Often, this culminates in podcasts over two hours long – 3.5 hours in the case of this one.
Mike has two of the most insightful voices in today’s cinema commentary landscape, Samm Deighan and Bill Ackerman, as his co-hosts for the Special Report on THE FLY. And I step up separately to be interviewed about my book, as does Stuart Cornfeld who is the producer of THE FLY and a champion of the film.
This is a podcast that never fails to deliver to the discerning film fan. Get into it.
Dave K (aka. A Fiend on Film) and I met through Twitter some time back where we shared a meeting of the minds due to our a mutual love of cinema and, in particular, the films of David Cronenberg (download his House of Skin fanzine, in which my writing on Cronenberg’s From the Drain short was included). So I was thrilled when he asked to interview me about THE FLY to run on his blog. Here’s how it panned out…
When I started writing my book on THE FLY, Rathan Krueger asked if he could do a preliminary interview with me for Daily Grindhouse. I said yes, and the resulting interview was so much fun, I had no problems agreeing to a follow-up interview with Rathan for DG upon the release of the book.
And here it is…
Yes, this is happening…
