Not Tarantino one. Real pulp fiction magazines and books are in my focus these days. Philip K Dick, like many many other authors of Sci-fi novels and short stories, published a bunch of works in those cheap publications. From 50’s to 60’s (for now), I’d located several of them, in great titles like Galaxy, If, Wonder Stories, Amazing Stories, and many more. These little books are old, very old, cheap paper with rusty and hard smell… Old paper, humidity, bacteries…. All of this will be removed, with luck, when I receive a little ozonizer!!! Will post the results… Meanwhile, I love to collect these littleRead More →

Hard to find (just try it!), I’m luckily located this copy at ebay. Rare, very rare to see the PKD classic in Henrew language… Reading order is reverse, that is, from back to cover (like Japanese books and so on).

From Masakazu Takeda, just today I’ve received this unique Vid-Phon report “book”. In fact, a 20 pages booklet with complete information about Vid-Phon booth prop, with CD included.

Some guys seem to think about people as dumb sheeps… Another ebay “offer” pop up and hurts me as fire! I’m looking for all available information about Braun products, to include some data in the Props Book. Then, I find this interesting book about 50 years of Braun success. But, hey folks, ebay seems to be a multipy machine when prices are set! Look the following snapshots. First one, ebay “offer”. Second one, brand new book selling at Amazon.de. “Do you know what a turtle is? Same thing…” Abusando de la gente Algunos tipos parecen pensar que la gente somos como corderitos estúpidos… ¡Otra “oferta”Read More →

Seems like the madness is true. Read the complete story here, in the Slashfilm blog. Personally, I hope this project could be interesting, or a waste of time… Jeter books are, IMHO, a bad sequels (my respects to Mr. Jeter, but I don’t like their books). And now, which starting point will have a BR sequel? It’s a mistery… No studio involved yet, one scrip twriter down before project starts… Weird! Let’s time say the last word… Guionistas de Eagle Eye trabajan en Blade Runner 2 Parece que semejante locura es cierta. Puede leer la historia completa (en inglés) en el blog de Slashfilm.
