Book Spotlight: Nights Of The Living Dead By Jonathan Maberry & George A. Romero
  |  @   |  

Nights of the Living Dead: An Anthology
Paperback | Digital Book | Audio CD
Edited by Jonathan Maberry & George A. Romero
St. Martin’s Griffin
Release Date: July 11th, 2017

In 1968, a horror movie from director George A. Romero came out called Night of the Living Dead. Nearly 50 years later, zombie horror is “alive” and well, with hit shows like The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book series. Over the past decade, we’ve seen a renaissance of zombie fiction in all forms of entertainment, from comics to novels like World War Z (Max Brooks) and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies (Seth Grahame-Smith) to TV and film. Zombie even manage to cross over into other genres. The TV series iZombie takes the flesh eaters into the world of police forensics and the underground “brain trade.” Movies like Warm Bodies (2013) showed zombies can be romantic and of course Shaun of the Dead (2004) proved they can be the butt of jokes.

Though, there was a time when zombies were not the “it” thing in horror, but back in 1989, an undead anthology called Book of the Dead (edited by John Skipp & Craig Spector) made zombie literature cool again. Nights of the Living Dead is a collection of original zombie short stories all based in the world Romero built. What’s really interesting is reading the introductions by Romero himself and co-editor, author, and unabashed Romero fanboy, Jonathan Maberry.

Music Review: Cold In July – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Cold in July: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music by Jeff Grace
Milan Records
Release Date: May 19, 2014

A truly great filmmaker is smart enough early in their career to establish strong working relationships with the best actors and behind-the-scenes crew they are willing to employ on more than one occasion. There are few creative bonds more crucial in the making of a memorable feature film than the one that exists between the director and their music composer of choice. Cinema history has given us such powerhouse teams as Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann, Steven Spielberg and John Williams, Tim Burton and Danny Elfman, Spike Lee and Terence Blanchard, Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer, and Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone to name but a few. Then of course there’s John Carpenter and the best composer he ever worked with….himself.

Speaking of Carpenter, his distinctive, brooding soundtracks are one of the driving influences powering the latest collaboration between filmmaker Jim Mickle and composer Jeff Grace, titled Cold In July.

In celebration of their 40th anniversary, there are multiple projects releasing in the coming months, not the least of which is The Sundering.

The series features six of the finest authors writing today and it just so happens that I got the chance to interview Richard Lee Byers, the man who penned The Reaver, fourth book in The Sundering. We talked about a variety of D&D-related topics and I even got to ask him a couple of questions about his interests and influences. Read the interview here below for more about this remarkable author and his works.
