Preorders for They Live

Here's the official cover for my cultography on They Live. I just received it from Columbia University Press this morning. I'm so excited about this book. It brings together a lot of my theoretical concerns, especially regarding postmodernism, and it allowed me to explore my upbringing in the 1980s during the tail-end of Cold War, which, I discovered, was as scary as it was exhilarating.

Preorders are now being accepted via the publisher as well as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Blurb for They Live

I received a terrific preliminary blurb for my upcoming cultography on They Live from Mark Bould, one of the best science fiction and film critics working today. Bould is the author of Film Noir: From Berlin to Sin City and Science Fiction: The Routledge Film Guidebook as well as the editor of Neo-Noir, The Routledge Concise History of Science Fiction, Fifty Key Figures in Science Fiction, and others. He's also the editor of Journal of Science Fiction Film & Television. Here's the blurb:

"Wilson gets what makes They Live live. With all the virtuosity of 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper performing an inverted atomic drop, he grapples with the many dimensions of Carpenter’s movie. From the critical, political and schizoanalytical to the simulacral and tonsorial, his short book chews bubble gum and kicks ass."

Vol. 1 Brooklyn

There's a new review of Primordial: An Abstraction in Vol. 1 Brooklyn written by Gabino Iglesias, who says some nice things about me. Here's one of them: "D. Harlan Wilson is one of those rare voices in contemporary fiction that deserves to be called incomparable. He understands strange, intelligent fiction and stands in the middle of it, pushing out in all directions like a rhizomatic monster that demands new space." Read the full review here.
