Warner Bros. is moving forward with a feature film reboot of the classic 1987 vampire film The Lost Boys. The reimagining will star Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) and Jaeden Martell (It). That’s a talented young cast, but there’s no information on who they’ll be playing in the film.
This is good, because Fright Reads in October is primarily a horror/spooky book show. Oh, fantasy authors are welcome, too, but I want to have my chapbooks on call and ready to be sold. DECISIONS isn’t as flat-out horrific as REVISIONARY was, but I’m pleased by how the Mythos story in it came out. Hopefully I’ll be in a position to move some product next month.
PS: MORGAN BAROD should be available, too, but those books aren’t coming until next week.
Legendary. The first edition: almost impossible to find, even in digital form. By all accounts, keep out of the reach of children.
You can pick up the softcover Alan Moore / Jacen Burrows PROVIDENCEnow, obviously. And they straightened out the digital option. But this is from the Indegogo and I don’t know how much the hardcover version is really worth. I suspect it’s going to be ‘a lot.’ Oh, well, I’m sure my kids will be happy to sell it for a tidy sum, after I’m gone. After they read it, and cringe: one last mortification for them, from beyond the grave…
It was a school holiday (Yom Kippur) and there were a ton of chores to do anyway. I need to figure out the best way to be on call if necessary, but sufficiently away to get work done. I suspect I’m going to end up needing to upgrade the Chromebook for that, but I’m reluctant. That’s, like, half a book’s production costs.
The crew of the first all-private orbital space mission has spent Thursday, the first full day of the mission, circling the Earth every 90 minutes at over 17,000 mph.
SpaceX reported the Crew Dragon Resilience capsule with four civilians inside was traveling 363 miles high over Asia as of mid-morning, quickly moving over the massive continent. The altitude is a full hundred miles higher than the International Space Station.
Shaenon, of course, did the cover for my first novel FROZEN RAIN — and will be doing the second Tom Vargas cover, once I’m ready to rev TINSEL RAIN up to speed. I’m glad she’s found something to keep her busy until then:
Karen Wojtyla at McElderry Books has bought world rights to Steam by The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor author Shaenon K. Garrity (l.), illustrated by Emily Holden. The YA graphic novel follows the adventures of Ruby, a “hypercognitive humanoid” designed to solve science’s greatest problems, who escapes from a university lab and finds a job as a barista in a kooky coffee shop, where she finds plenty of problems to solve.
This will not end quietly. It will probably end hilariously, but not quietly. And as one of the wondering responders to the original tweet noted: Vicki does not, in fact, hate to be this person. This is why she was put on the Earth.
