A few appearances from around the web

Joe Valdez over at This Distracted Globe quoted me in his write-up of Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes. Thanks, Joe. The quote comes from my review of the Criterion Collection DVD release, which you can read here. Purchase the (awesome) DVD here.

Over on the Bibliophile Stalker blog, there is a review/overview of the issue of Weird Tales in which my “commendable piece,” Whispers of the Old Hag, appeared. Thanks, Charles. The issue also has a listing at Locus Online.

Speaking of listings, Pictureshowman.com lists A Year of Hitchcock with upcoming books on the History of Motion Pictures. Looks like we’re in some fine company.

While we’re on A Year of Hitchcock, I found a good source for tracking down deals on the book. The book’s listing at isbndb.com includes links to a number of vendors, as well as price comparisons. Very handy tool! You can also watch the book’s official website for similar information. Keep in mind, a paperback edition is coming this fall.

Someone at PaperBackSwap.com decided to completely lift a quickly dashed-off book review posted to Amazon I did. Errr, thanks? She did credit me, at least — she didn’t for most of the other reviews she lifted — but I think I may have preferred otherwise. I can’t claim to take Amazon reviews with deep seriousness. They’re no different than the stuff you’d post to a message board or Facebook for fun.

For you comic book fans, I contributed to the Marvel Essentials FAQ. It was so long ago I have very little recollection of what I did, but look! It’s my name! (I’m sure I did nothing more than provide a tiny tidbit of nerd information.)

So there you have it. It’s my “me! me! me!” post for April. I get to do that now and then, don’t I?
