In my mailbox: Zombie Housewives of the 1980’s (Volume 4)

In my mailbox: Zombie Housewives of the 1980’s (Volume 4)

Julie Ferguson and Sharon Day are at it again with another zombiefied look at American culture. This time our Zombie Housewives take a shot at the 1980s. The book is a quick and humorous read that is packed with fabulous pictures.
If you are a fan of that wacky decade or, as in my case, survived the decade, you should enjoy this delightful romp. Zombie Housewives of the 1980’s will be perfect as an end-table/coffee table book for the Halloween holidays. Having said that, I expect to leave this one out all year.
Easter egg alert, if you look carefully, you might be able to find me in the book. In addition to my picture, Sharon was kind enough to write a sweet dedication to me and I really appreciate it.
Now, I am not saying to Authors that adding a picture /quote/poem/dedication of me (or by me) is an easy way to get 5 stars, but it doesn’t hurt *evil grin*.  Of course, I give Zombie Housewives of the 1980’s  a perfect 5 out of 5 stars. I also admit to being very biased … I love the Authors!
Zombie Housewives of the 1980’s, the fourth book in the “Zombie Housewives” series, takes the reader into the decade of the 1980’s where everything is brighter, louder, and more obnoxious than any other generation. Pop icons, technology, and materialism are the standard measures of success. When ZIDS (zombies-in-development syndrome) hits the rock circuit and spreads throughout the world creating invincible flesh-eating zombies, its influence is reflected in all pop culture of the 1980’s. Join Brandi, the mall rat and girl band member, and Madison, the entrepreneur and materialistic yuppie, on their journey through the wild 80’s as women of the decade and zombies, as well. Enjoy this urban fantasy, social satire, tongue-in-cheek book in Kindle format and this FULL-COLOR COLLECTIBLE VERSION.

Dishonored is free on Steam this weekend

Are you in the mood for some steampunk gaming mayhem? f your answer is yes, you may be interested in a game titled Dishonored (link). You can try the game out for free over the weekend (ending Sunday at 1PM Pacific Time).

It is not unusual for Steam to showcase a game with a free weekend and Steam has many free-to-play game titles. I recommend the company.

The Reptile, Hammer Films

It should come as no surprise to anyone who reads "Attention Earthlings" that I am a big fan of Hammer Horror. The Reptile is a gem in the Hammer Films collection. It is packed with great costumes, atmosphere, acting, and mystery. I really loved it.



After the death of  his brother, Harry Spalding brings his beautiful wife (Jennifer Daniel --- The Reptile, The Kiss of the Vampire) to the country home of his late brother. The unfriendly locals try to drive the couple away. Of course, there is a mystery to solve ...

I give the movie 4 Hammerlicious stars out of 5.

Jason Momoa as Aquaman?

Warner Bros has given the green-light for an Aquaman movie (or two). Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire) have been tapped to write 2 separate scripts. It seems that Jason Momoa has the inside track to play the king of Atlantis.

Jason Momoa s known for his television roles as Ronon Dex (2005–09) on the series Stargate: Atlantis (2004–09) and as Khal Drogo on the fantasy television series Game of Thrones (2011). He also starred  in the sword and sorcery film Conan the Barbarian (2011).

Viking Santa?

Sony has won the bidding war for the Winter’s Knight a dark tale of Santa's origin. Santa as a dark Viking??? --- cool! As I learn more, I'll keep you updated.

John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War headed to Syfy

As many of you know, I loved Scalzi's "Old Man's War" and the Syfy channel has been the green light to a "Ghost Brigades" series based on Scalzi's "Old Man's War". It's nice to see the Syfy channel actually try to produce some scifi.

If the book is unknown to you, I highly recommend it. Check out my review of "Old Man's War" at my other blog Gnostalgia (link)

The seventy-five-year-old writer, John Perry, joins the army or in this case the Colonial Defense Force. Perry is provided with a new young body for his exciting new life of  meeting and killing new life-forms.

R.I.P. Arlene Martel,

One of my all-time favorite Star Trek episodes, “Amok Time”, featured the actress Arlene Martel as T'Pring.


RIP Lauren Bacall

Hollywood has lost another great talent and, in this case, a star of Hollywood's golden era Lauren Bacall.

We had it all
(We had it all)
Just like Bogie and Bacall
Starring in our old late, late show
Sailing away to Key Largo
Here's lookin' at you kid
(Here's lookin' at you kid)
Missing all the things we did
We can find it once again, I know
Just like they did in Key Largo
