Update On 'The Totally Geeky Guide To Bruce Campbell'
Upon request, I went out and inquired regarding the upcoming book, The Totally Geeky Guide To Bruce Campbell. The book is going to be written by MaryAnn Johanson, who runs FlickFilosopher, and is in the development stages as of right now. Johanson gives us an update on what the book is all about:
"I'm delighted that people are excited about the book. There's not much to tell, however -- the book is only in the very early planning stages. But the idea is that I will explore and interpret Bruce's career -- and why we his work seems to speak in a particular way to those of a geekish persuasion -- from the perspective of the fan. I would love to talk to Bruce about his work and get his take on his own work, and I will try to do that, but the important thing here is that this will emphatically not be about an insider's perspective: it won't be about funny stories from the set, making-of trivia, or anything like that. It'll be about figuring out why we all love Bruce so much. The book will feature commentary on Bruce's work from an overall perspective, and also on a project-by-project basis. If anyone wants an idea of what the book will be like, I suggest they take a look at my *Princess Bride* book (you posted an image of the cover at your blog). And of course, buying that book will only encourage me to get to work on the Bruce book!"
Fans will flock to anything thats about Bruce. I'll keep you updated if anything happens regarding the project.
Note: One other story for today.
