For all you horror fans, a chilling novel by MMI's resident headbanger movie reviewer (cover Art by Cliff Nielsen).
"The falling snow, dropping from the darkened sky, reminded her ofthe steady rain of souls upon the plains of her homeland. Although, unlike the souls, the snow did not scream." When I read those lines (from Michael Marano's Dawn Song), I got up, turned on all the lights and checked the locks.
William Peter Blatty
(Author of THE EXORCIST and LEGION)
This volume grew out of a conference held in San Francisco in 1996: Maya Deren: Radical Aspiration. The title of this anthology sheds light on Deren's placement within the post-war US avant-garde film tradition. It is a collection of a multiplicity of methodologies and concerns which squelch the myths and legends concerning this creative filmmaker. The collection of writing will help the reader go beyond Meshes of the Afternoon into the magnificent world of Deren's theories and creations.
