Ronald Dahl’s classic work of ‘The Witches’ is going to be brought back to cinematic life by director Robert Zemeckis (‘Back to the Future’,’Contact’). Zemeckis has created quite a few iconic films over his career, and while he hasn’t been directing as much in recent years, this seems to be a perfect fit for his style. The movie is going to be based on the 1973 novel by Roald Dahl and likely be closer to the source material than the 1990 film which the author had previously shared was “utterly appalling.” Ouch. The last film became somewhat of a cult classic but did take great liberties with Dahl’s work, so it will be interesting what Zemeckis does as he is also set to pen the script. Behind the scenes, he’ll be producing with Jack Rapke, under their ImageMovers banner with Guillermo Del Toro and Alfonso Cuarón also on board to help. Del Toro has previously been on the short list to be in the director’s chair as well. The “novel follows a young boy whose life is turned upside down when he discovers the existence of child-hating witches.” Honestly, unless they update the setting to modern times, they really shouldn’t […]

Annex, Rich Larson (Orbit 978-0-316-41654-2, $15.95, 336pp, tp) July 2018.

By his own count, Rich Larson has published over 100 stories since 2012, with an impressive number of them making it into year’s best anthologies. That amounts to one of the more stunning debuts in recent SF, even as he’s largely been under the radar for major awards (possibly in part because of that very prolificity). This inevitably creates a …Read More

New York Times bestselling author Dan Abnett might be best known to comic fans for his runs on ‘The Punisher’, ‘War Machine’, and ‘Annihilation: Nova’ but is also responsible for this action-packed prose novel ‘Avengers: Everybody Wants to Rule the World.’ This is the first work by Marvel which Titan is putting out and has Earth’s Mightiest Heroes seeing multiple world-conquering threats all hitting at once. ‘Avengers: Everybody Wants to Rule the World’ sees A.I.M., Hydra, Ultron, Dormammu, and the High Evolutionary all working to take over Earth at the same time. Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Iron Man, Thor, Bruce Banner, and Nick Fury are all on the case but are spread thin as each hero has to be separated to tackle these threats one at a time. To make matters worse, global communications are down so they can’t even see that a pattern is emerging until they’re able to battle through their initial threats. Once they can contact one another, it quickly becomes clear that an even more significant threat has been playing these villains like chess pieces from behind the scenes. While this book is an easy hit for fans of comics, there isn’t a lot of […]

Meet Me in the Strange, Leander Watts (Meerkat 978-1-946154-15-6, $16.95, 234pp, hc) March 2018.

This is one unique book.

I was chapters into Meet Me in the Strange before I fully realized that the reviewer part of my brain needed to be turned off (stop noting names and locations, stop paying attention to setting descriptions and plot development) and I just needed to take the ride this book was offering. …Read More

Gnomon, Nick Harkaway (William Heinemann 978-1785151279, £14.99, 704pp, hc) November 2017. (Knopf 978-1524732080, $28.95, 688pp, hc) January 2018.

I know I’m late to the work of Nick Harkaway. I’ve meant to read his fiction since the publication of The Gone-Away World back in 2008, I even bought the book, but, for whatever reason, never cracked open the covers. I was planning on picking up Gnomon, until I saw it was …Read More
