A couple of book updates first: My heroes over at the Dissolve were nice enough to follow up the Pulp Fiction excerpt a couple of weeks back with an invite to appear on their podcast, so you can listen to that here. Or, y'know, just subscribe to the podcast, because it's excellent.
And the Woody Allen book is finished. Spent the last two weeks editing, and as soon as I get my last batch of notes from the world's greatest copy editor (aka the Mrs.), off it goes to the publisher. And that, of course, is when the real fun starts.

I haven't really mentioned it all that much here on the linky-blog, but hey, my Pulp Fiction book is out! Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino's Masterpiece is available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many other fine booksellers. It's currently #1 at Amazon! (In the "Theory" category of the "movie" category of the "humor and entertainment" category of the "books" category.) It was recently included in the New York Times holiday gift guide, as well as the Nerdist gift guide. And the wonderful, brilliant scribes over at The Dissolve were nice enough to run this excerpt: "God Got Involved," my look at the film's themes of spirituality and redemption.
Only a few more links from the past couple o' weeks, since I took some time off to finish off the first draft of the Woody Allen book (available next fall from Voyageur Press!):
