On Wednesday May 6 I’ll be at the Architectural Association in London, giving a public lecture titled “What Time Is It There? Time as a Character in Contemporary Films.” The talk looks at how recent filmmakers – from Bela Tarr to Christopher Nolan, with a detour for Richard Linklater – have used Time as subject and method. The talk is at 6 p.m. at the Lecture Hall. More info here.
This is out: My new book on the 1931 Frankenstein, from Columbia University Press. One place to get it is here.
Out now: the first two volumes of Rotten, a wild, provocative, and gory graphic novel I have co-authored with Mark Rahner (art by Dan Dougherty). It’s a zombie Western set in 1877, with overtones of recent U.S. political history. Or possibly undertones. Click on my Rotten tab above for further info and marching orders. Order the Rotten trade paperbacks at the Rotten website and see cover art here. The Rotten page at Moonstone, where you can also order the Rotten book The Lost Diary of John J. Flynn, U.S. Agent, is here. Check the Rotten music video here.
