BATTLEFIELD ON EARTH Released as Commemorative EditionBATTLEFIELD ON EARTH Released as Commemorative Edition
by BWW News Desk - Feb 9, 2016

L. Ron Hubbard's international bestselling novel Battlefield Earth is being released nationally as a commemorative edition by Galaxy Press this coming Father's Day, and includes a special dedication to the writers and editors who made science fiction's Golden Age a reality. In a 1983 interview with the Rocky Mountain News, done when Battlefield Earth was first published, Hubbard commented on the period known as The Golden Age of science fiction, 'Those of us who were there writing during that period have a unique viewpoint because we were there. 'Golden age' was a later characterization. At the time, it meant simply an explosion of interest and opportunities.' And so the dedication to 'Battlefield Earth' (www.galaxypress.com) is singularly unique in that L. Ron Hubbard recognized 87 individually named writers and editors of the 1930s and 40s who were all part of that explosion. The dedication simply reads, 'This brand-new novel is dedicated to Robert A. Heinlein, A. E. van Vogt, John W. Campbell, Jr., and all the merry crew of science fiction and fantasy writers of the thirties and forties-The Golden Age-who made science fiction and fantasy the respected and popular literary genres they have become today.' In defining that merry crew, Hubbard proceeds to list an additional 84 names. Hubbard continued, 'Some who wrote the pulps were called 'just science fiction writers.' But history has proven that they were the ones who brought about the future-not the naysayers. We knew then that Man would travel to the stars and we know it still.' Concepts coming to fruition or now gaining widespread scientific recognition-ranging from microchip implants, robot drones and teleportation to the existence of other planets at the rim of the observable universe-were initially conceived of and written about decades ago by science fiction writers such as Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard and H.G. Wells. The June commemorative paperback edition of 'Battlefield Earth' will be available at GalaxyPress.com, Amazon.com and BN.com and will contain expanded content including author's handwritten notes and an author interview. The 47 ½ long audiobook is the longest fiction multicast audiobook ever produced comprising 67 actors performing 198 different characters with a soundscape employing over 150,000 sound effects and over 3 hours of original music created for the audiobook. For more information about 'Battlefield Earth' and the upcoming release, go to www.GalaxyPress.com. (more...)

BWW Reviews: A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM at Cabrillo Music TheatreBWW Reviews: A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM at Cabrillo Music Theatre
by Cary Ginell - Feb 1, 2016

Laurel and Hardy must be smiling in the comedy Valhalla. Cabrillo Music Theatre's near-perfect production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, which opened last night at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza's Scherr Forum, brings back the classic, broad humor from vaudeville, performed by an inspired cast of crazies who not only aren't afraid of anything going wrong, but are probably HOPING for mishaps that would destroy any other show. This is, of course, because Forum is one of those shows where spontaneity and the unexpected is almost as obligatory as Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart's uproarious script and Stephen Sondheim's witty lyrics.

Years ago, when I was practically a kid, studying to move to New York City and break into the biz, I had a dance scholarship in the Luigi technique. And when I came to New York I studied with him. He changed my life, but then again, he seems to have changed everyone's life that was lucky enough to know him. (more...)

BWW Review: DEBBIE DOES DALLAS is Sublimely Silly SatireBWW Review: DEBBIE DOES DALLAS is Sublimely Silly Satire
by Frank Benge - Dec 21, 2015

During the seventies, the adult film industry went through a very strange period of trying to make adult films with actual plots and dialogue. The attempts, to put it mildly, were laughable. The 'acting' was, at best, wooden and the dialogue ranged the gamut from stilted to repetitive. During this period, which has been dubbed 'The Golden Age of Porn' or 'Porno Chic', came some big box office successes. Among the biggest hits of this era was the film 'Debbie Does Dallas', released in 1978, close to the end of the period. By the early eighties, home video effectively ended the era where people went to movie theaters to see porn. (more...)

Ron Glick Launches Oz-Wonderland SeriesRon Glick Launches Oz-Wonderland Series
by BWW News Desk - Dec 14, 2015

Three years ago, fantasy author Ron Glick introduced the world to the re-envisioned classic Oz-Wonderland Series. But after Dorothy Gale and Alice Liddell saved three faery realms, what else might the Cheshire Cat have planned for them? In the first three books of the Oz-Wonderland Series, the Wicked Witches returned with secrets - including a mysterious past that linked them to Wonderland and the Looking Glass World. But even after saving these fragmented realms from destruction, Alice Liddell and Dorothy Gale found themselves confronted with an even greater mystery - at least two other shards needed to be found before Wonderland could be fully restored. Now the series resumes with 'The Marvelous Neverland of Oz,' where the March Hare leads a renegade army from Wonderland rampaging across Oz, Mombi plots to bring even more chaos in an effort to escape, and Glinda must delve into her own past. And as three magical realms seek to find balance, an eternally young boy makes his way to Oz with secrets of yet another faery world - Neverland. The Oz-Wonderland series has been by far Ron Glick's most well-received series. Now, with the fourth book expanding to include the mythology of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and Neverland, Glick sets the stage for even greater adventures. With a faithful eye to the original Baum, Carroll and Barrie classics, The Marvelous Neverland of Oz launches the next exciting chapter in the modern classic Oz-Wonderland series. 'This book has had me on edge and now it's torturing me! You've got to read this book! I give it a rating of 10 out of 10 as it has literally got me wanting more!' - L. Allison Burres, on 'The Wizard In Wonderland' Ron Glick (born January 20, 1969) is a community activist, and is presently active in several charitable enterprises. He currently lives in Kalispell, MT. He is the author of The Godslayer Cycle, Chaos Rising , Oz-Wonderland, and Ron El's Comic Book Trivia series, as well as founding The Golden Age Preservation Project. He loves contact and welcomes input on his work through his website, http://ronglick.com. (more...)
