So on request from a fan (thanks, Emily!) I've decided to upload THE TELLTALE PANCREAS, the original short story that led to The Repossession Mambo novel and eventually to Repo Men the film. Up 'til now, it had only been seen by a small group of people -- my agents, SFX guru and director Bob Kurtzman (hi, Bob!), a bunch of friends, and some editors at a few magazines who rejected it, damn them. Please keep in mind it was written just a couple years after I got out of college -- I was but a babe of 25 -- so if the style isn't up to snuff, apologies.
So if I can figure out how to make Typepad accept a pdf file, all you'll have to do is click below to check it out...
One of these days -- well, probably in a couple weeks -- I'll stop babbling about REPO MEN and choose a new topic, but for now, Repo's on the menu.
To wit, we just released the first motion comic meant to introduce you to the world of the film, and to our main character, played by Jude Law. Jude reprises his role from the film here in the motion comic, which was directed by Miguel, and co-written by yours truly. As with the film itself, it's R-rated, so please, kids, cover your eyes at the naughty bits.
So FANGORIA, one of the few true-genre magazines left (I will always miss you, STARLOG), has a nice interview piece with me about REPO MEN for which they've just posted the first half. Those of you who have read the essay in the back of the novel or read other interviews with me may not get a ton of new information, but if you're curious, or don't already know the history of the project, or just want to see some nice pictures of Jude, Forest, and the film, you can check it out by clicking HERE...
Miguel's cut of his own redband trailer has just been put out by Universal, and it's my favorite so far, hands-down. Mig's always had an AMAZING sense of music in film -- wait'll you see what he does in the actual movie with 'source' clips -- and this trailer is a perfect example.
Warning: This one's a bit bloody. I know, they all are, but redband is redband for a reason.
