Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Although he is most remembered for his vast collection of science fiction memorabilia; his influential magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland; and his frequent sci-fi convention appearances, Forrest J Ackerman (1916–2008) also left a sizeable body of work in print. An introductory biographical section traces Ackerman’s early enthusiasm for pulp magazines and film productions of a fantastic nature, his rise to prominence in “fandom,” his acquisition of memorabilia, his work as a literary agent, the founding of his landmark magazine in 1958, and his friendship with a number of performers and personnel from genre films. The extensive bibliography includes listings of books, published letters, articles, fiction, verse, speeches, screenplays, comics, discography, liner notes, and periodicals edited and published by Ackerman. A thorough filmography, a selected listing of nationally televised appearances, and rare photographs of Ackerman throughout his lifetime complete this definitive catalog of one of science fiction’s most interesting personalities.

Book excerpt: Little Shoppe of Horrors #32 By 1973, Hammer had been sold by Sir James Carreras to his son, Michael Carreras, at a period when the British film industry was collapsing. Leaving Michael to search for new ideas and financing sources for Hammer films. This led him to the Shaw Brothers, the far East’s major producer of movies. And out of that came THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES, which wildly integrated Western ideals of vampires with Eastern legends. Peter Cushing was back as Van Helsing for the last time, while Hong Kong super star, David Chiang, led the brothers and sister on a battle to save their village from the Golden Vampires. Little Shoppe of Horrors #32 takes you behind the scenes in that East did not always meet West as the two companies clashed on how the film should be made.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cosplay, short for "costume play", has grown from its origins at fan conventions into a billion-dollar global dress phenomenon. Costuming Cosplay takes us from elaborately crafted DIY costumes to online fandoms, examining how the practice of portraying fictional characters from popular culture through dress and performance has become a creative means of expressing and playing with different identities. With an approach that ranges from admiration and role-play to gender performance, this is the first book to fully examine the subculture and costume of the Cosplay phenomenon. Drawing on extensive first-hand research at conventions across North America and Asia, Therèsa M. Winge invites us to explore how Cosplay functions as a meritocracy of creativity, escapism, and disguise, and offers a creative realm in which fantasy and new forms of socializing carry as much importance as costume. Illustrated with color photographs of both celebrity and amateur Cosplayers, Costuming Cosplay is essential reading for students and scholars of fashion and costume, popular culture, anthropology, gender, and media studies, as well as global players and fans of Cosplay.
