What NOT to Do Making Movies: Emily Asher-Perrin on Pan; Blight Digest Discontinued
Well maybe it’s a bit dyspeptic, but here is an interesting review of a movie that morphed into more of a general complaint via TOR.COM, “5 Mistakes That Hollywood Blockbusters Should Stop Making, as Proved By PAN,” by Emily Asher-Perrin. Interesting not because I’d really planned on going to the movie myself (but now maybe I will!), but because I wonder which, if any, of these I might have made in my own writing. Or maybe it should be how to avoid them.
Or . . . maybe . . . how to use them, or twists thereon, in some possible new tale?
Be that as it may, for the skinny from Asher-Perrin, please to press here.
Then for some sad news: Editor/Publisher Ron Earl Phillips announced today that BLIGHT DIGEST has been discontinued. This was the one that had accepted my tale of hunger and wild plants, “Strawberry Fields,” as a reprint (cf. January 28). However Editor Phillips adds “This isn’t to say that BLIGHT is done, or at least the inclusion of short story horror in the business plan of One Eye Press for 2016 and/or 2017. I love short stories and hope to make a push for a themed horror anthology in the next 18 months.”
So, dead for now, but perhaps it may yet bear fruit in the future
