Eye On Science Fiction: 20 Interviews With Classic SF And Horror Makers by Tom Weaver (book review).

Just when I thought Tom Weaver wouldn’t have any other books to surprise me, I came across ‘Eye On Science Fiction: 20 Interviews With Classic SF And Horror Makers’ in Eurospan’s back catalogue. Looking at the twenty people interviewed, there are several who worked well into the 60s and 70s, far beyond Weaver’s usual cut-off […]

Science Fiction Stars And Horror Heroes by Tom Weaver (book review).

Looking at the book list in the indicia, I thought I’ve reviewed nearly all of Tom Weaver’s excellent interview books until I checked the back cover and found six I haven’t. As he points out in the introduction to this one, ‘Science Fiction Stars And Horror Heroes’, which originally came out as a library edition […]

They Fought In The Creature Features by Tom Weaver (book review).

‘They Fought In The Creature Features’ gets off to a great start with an interview with Julie Adams and about a certain Gill-Man from the Black Lagoon. Although it was amongst five films she was in the year, it is the one that she is most remembered for. As with all of these books, Tom […]

Attack Of The Monster Movie Makers by Tom Weaver (book review).

Originally released in 1994, ‘Attack Of The Monster Movie Makers’, Tom Weaver’s interview book truly lives up to the sub-title of ‘Interviews With 20 Genre Giants’. Well, maybe less with the starter because I doubt if many of you know actress Merry Anders, but that’s largely because she landed up in the B movies as […]

I Talked With A Zombie by Tom Weaver (book review).

The 2009 release of the book ‘I Talked With A Zombie’ where Tom Weaver interviews 23 genre stars could really have been called ‘I Talked With Time Travellers’ when you consider three of them starred in ‘The Time Tunnel’. What I like about Weaver’s interview books is that they don’t just dwell on particular films […]

Universal Horrors: The Studio’s Classic Films, 1931-1946 by Tom Weaver, Michael Brunas and John Brunas (book review).

Universal Horrors: The Studio’s Classic Films, 1931-1946 by Tom Weaver, Michael Brunas and John Brunas (book review).

I never saw the first edition of Tom Weaver, Michael Brunas and John Brunas’ book, ‘Universal Horrors: The Studio’s Classic Films, 1931-1946’ so don’t know how much it was revised and updated. As it focuses on 85 Universal horror films from the pre-1950s, one can only assume further other tit-bits of information and critiques cropped […]

Interviews With B Science Fiction And Horror Movie Makers by Tom Weaver (book review).

I like this time of year. With the rush of new books over, it gives an opportunity to read some books that might have been missed the first time around and thanks to the delightful people at Eurospan who distribute McFarland books in the UK, I feel very fortunate to dip into their back catalogue […]
