Blackfish City, by Sam J. Miller (Ecco 978-0-06-268482-0, $22.99, 336pp, hardcover) April 2018

I’m going to confess to an idiosyncratic critical weakness: if you want me to be immediately predisposed towards your novel, preface it with an epigram from Dhalgren. Not only will I instantly respect your taste and cultural leanings, but I will be excited to see if your own book can possibly be worthy of bearing …Read More

With production on ‘It: Chapter Two’ set to begin this summer, the cast is coming together.  All eyes are on who will play the grown-up versions of the Losers Club from ‘Chapter One’.  So far, Jessica Chastain has been cast to play Beverly Marsh, with James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader as Richie Tozier, Andy Bean as Stanley Uris and James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak.  Now a sixth Loser has been cast! New Zealander Jay Ryan will be stepping into the role of the adult Ben Hanscom. Wow.  Looks like someone certainly grew out of their baby fat! Played by Jeremy Ray Taylor in the first movie, Ben was the awkward new kid on the block (sorry, I couldn’t help myself).  He develops a sudden intense fascination with the history of Derry, Maine, and spends all of his free time at the library researching it.  It is his in-depth knowledge that gives the kids the advantage they need when it comes time for them to confront “It” the mysterious force that is attempting to kill them. Ben eventually grows up and becomes an architect.  John Ritter played him in the original TV miniseries. Ryan most recently appeared in the Hulu series ‘Mary Kills People’, […]
