I recently came across this short, animated film on Facebook and wanted to share it with all of you. They did a great job, and you should definitely check it out. Find out why Jabba the Hut placed a bounty on Han Solo’s head in this award-winning film by the June 2010 graduating class at the DAVE School.
For this month’s BIG THRILL, I interviewed Neil Russell about his new book, WILDCASE, and his career in the film and television industries…
You may have never heard of Neil Russell, but if youve ever been to the movies or turned on a television, chances are that youve seen his handiwork. He is currently the president of Site 85 Productions, a company engaged in the creation and acquisition of intellectual properties for entertainment media. But he is also a former senior executive of Paramount, Columbia, MGM/UA and Carolco Pictures (producers of the Rambo movies, Terminator 2, and Total Recall), where he also founded and headed Carolco Television Productions. On top of all this, he is a novelist who the legendary Clive Cussler described as one of the finest, skilled, and accomplished writers in the country, a true master of intrigue.
For those of you who have never seen this, consider yourself lucky…er…I mean, you can check out this abridged version that hits all the highlights and <sarcasm> gives you an idea of the wonders of the Star Wars universe that you’ve been missing out on. </sarcasm>
For this month’s BIG THRILL, I interviewed Walter Greatshell about his new book, MAD SKILLS…
Walter Greatshells new book, Mad Skills, has been described as a modern classic and top notch in every regard. It is the story of a teenage girl who awakens from a coma to find that her brain has been interfaced with an experimental supercomputer, making her the smartest person on Earth and possibly the most dangerous.
In his newest novel, author Steve Alten has penned a disturbing and thought provoking journey straight into the depths of darkness. Grim Reaper is a loose retelling of Dante’s Inferno set to the backdrop of a devastating plague outbreak on the island of Manhattan. The story follows a war veteran tortured by his past as he tries to traverse the streets of a dying metropolis in order to save his wife and daughter with the only known cure for the terrible disease. The only catch is that the cure possesses a side effect of vivid hallucinations that cause the landscape of Manhattan to shift from an urban jungle into the various circles of Hell described by Dante.
For this month’s BIG THRILL, I interviewed Jim Fusilli about his new book, Narrows Gate, and his groundbreaking deal with Audible…
With his new novel, Narrows Gate, author Jim Fusilli has blazed a path that may open up a bold new outlet for writers to share their stories. Hes done so by becoming the first writer to sell a book to Audible (a large audiobook publisher and distributor) without the book first appearing in print. And its fitting that the book treading this new ground is one described as outstanding in every way and a big, broad-shouldered novel, equal parts Ellroy, Puzo and Scorsese.
For this month’s Big Thrill, I interviewed Raymond Khoury about his new book THE TEMPLAR SALVATION…
The first pairing of FBI Agent Sean Reilly and archaeologist Tess Chaykin in Raymond Khoury’s The Last Templar spent 11 weeks on the hardcover New York Times Bestseller list and was a Number 1 bestseller overseas. It has been translated into thirty-eight languages, published in over forty countries, and became the basis for a television mini-series.
