  • Twenty Thousand Roads: The Ballad of Gram Parsons and His Cosmic American Music
    by David Meyer

    Los Angles Times

    Some suits tell a story, like the one on the cover of the Flying Burrito Brothers' 1969 album, "The Gilded Palace of Sin." It is worn by the band's leader, Gram Parsons; perhaps nobody else could have stood up to it. On the bell-bottom pants, embroidered flames crawl up the legs, all the way to the roses that cover the front and back pockets. Parsons' jacket lapels sport naked women, in the style of old-school sailors' tattoos. Rising up the front are impressively embroidered marijuana leaves; the sleeves feature Seconals, Tuinals and a presumably LSD-dosed sugar cube. On the back a blood-red cross is shot through with blue and gold rays. ...More...

  • The 100 Best Films to Rent You've Never Heard Of: Hidden Treasures, Neglected Classics, and Hits From By-Gone Eras
    by David N. Meyer

    David Meyer manages to say just enough about each of these 100 films to whet your appetite without sounding pedantic or critical. He provides categorizations of the films  and he points out interesting things to watch for in each film without ruining any of the fun of discovering a film for yourself (i.e. he never reveals the ending for you). BTW, those of you worried that this book only contains "art" films or boring dramas, take note that TWO John Woo films and a selection of comedies are among the wide range of genre and category covered in this book. Meyer even includes other selections indexed by director, so that the book really contains far more than 100 suggestions....More...

     
  • A Girl and a Gun: The Complete Guide to Film Noir on Video
    by David N. Meyer

    A comprehensive and insightful Film Noir guid not recommended for the terminally dull and humorless. This book is funny, easy to read and comprehensive. Not as dry as most noir books and the mood guide, as with Meyer's first book, is a great help. I like to know if this is a date movie! Photos and captions are wonderful. I am giving them away as gifts to friends shut in with kids; makes raising kids more than bearable - even enjoyable. Thanks for bringing Ida Lupino back into my life!

     
  • The Book of the SubGenius : The Sacred Teachings of J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs
    by J.R. Dobbs, The SubGenius Foundation, Rev. Ivan Stang

    Divine obfuscation has a purpose. This is the classic that ushered in so many imitators, imitators who did not get "it." "It" is slack, the desiderata that cannot be desired and is only attainable through "Bob," the evil god/male model who founded the Church of the SubGenius without bothering to "exist." If you read this holy book properly, you will learn to "pull the wool over your own eyes." While this volume may seem hilarious, it's also an incredibly adept deconstruction of religion in general and the human impulse to believe in and follow anyone who promises to give their lives meaning and structure.

     
  • Under the Fang (The Horror Writers of America Present)
    Pocket

    This is a collection of short stories from various authors, edited by bestselling horror author Robert R MacCammon. Each is a separate tale about a world in which the vampires have won. David N. Meyer's story asks the question: literary agent or bloodsucking slave master?

     
  • Dream Quest 1: Halberd, Dream Warrior
    by Lloyd St. Alcorn

    Follow Halberd, Dream Warrior, the Viking shaman who journeys from Norseland to the New World in search of vengeance against the evil witch Grettir. Using his power to enter the Dream World and braving all the demons of Norse and Native American myth and legend, Halberd introduces the reader to the Dream Quest Trilogy, which includes ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS and THE SERPENT MOUND. At the time of their publication, a great hit among stoned servicemen and their hormonal equivalents.
