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 →

A huge volume with four of the most interesting works of PKD: The Man in the High Castle, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Ubik.

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). And, the only data in occidental characters are the main title, ISBN number and year of publication… Wow, I need some lessons!!! Sueñan los androides con ovejas eléctricas? en edición hebrea Muy raro de localizar (¡sólo inténtalo!), he tenido la suerte de localizar una copia en ebay. Raro, muy raro ver la obra de PKD en lengua hebrea… El orden de lectura es inverso, esRead 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.

Today I’ve received three Blurb books. None involved with Blade Runner. Two of them have Japan as subject. The other one, beautiful landscapes. Well, each one has different approachs in composition, cover, bindings, number of pages and so on. And all of them looks great in overall. Only type could be better in one of the books. Perhaps author faults, I don’t know. But, paper quality and picture quality is great! I think this will be the way… Blurb editions, one by one, with a reasonable cost, easy distribution to US/Canada market and not so expensive to Europe. Time of printing from order is aboutRead More →
