What a pompous title for a first blog, right? Be forewarned--In this series of blogs, I'll be writing mostly about my current interests. Usually those include the TV series or films I've just seen, books or articles I'm writing, and projects (again, mostly about film, TV, or books) on which I'm working or which intrigue me.
You might also be wondering about the "Books, Films, and Me" title when I write that I'm a university prof who teaches courses about writing and communication. Think of my blog being about books, films, and, of course, me, and the title doesn't sound quite so strange.
Currently I'm focused on four separate work areas:
My real job as a teacher
My books-in-progress, such as a book about science fiction TV heroes, villains, and monsters and a book about Tolkien's hobbits
My just-published books, such as the third edition of Lost's Buried Treasures (Sourcesbooks, January 2010)
A film currently in pre-production that has absorbed my interest: Casimir Effect
For the immediate future, my blogs will be centered around those. I hope you'll enjoy reading them, commenting on them (but please, play nicely!), and sharing them with readers, filmgoers, fans, or anyone else who might enjoy them.
