A Seventies Disaster




Gef Fox is running a competition over at his blog and one of the prizes is my book Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits, which you can win along with Camille Alexa's Push of the Sky. And if you already have one or both of those books, he's also running another competition where you can win the anthologies 52 Stitches and Courting Morpheus. And if you have all those books on your shelf (I do), then erm... You are extra awesome (except in the case of me, because I'm in two of them).

Hope you're enjoying your weekend. I'm vegging out and watching old movies. Just watched Bell, Book and Candle with Jimmy Stewart and next up is Airport--I love disaster movies. I love old seventies disaster movies.

Thanks for the tip! I already own Strange Men, of course, but the others sound good too.

Incidentally - just started reading Strange Men. Wonderful stuff. Enjoying it very much. Must be nice to be talented.

I hadn't thought of Airplane in years. Was that the real one about the plane crash or was it the parody? I get them mixed up in my memory.

My house has become a 1970s disaster movie. ;)

Enjoy the weekend!

Thanks, Simon. I imagine it must be.

I watched the non-spoof, Kate. I don't think I've ever sat through the whole of the spoof version.

Ha, Aaron.

I like spoofs of old seventies movies ; ) Also, my neighbor's house is full of sparrows. Literally, all you hear is chirping. It's like something you would write!

Shweet! Anything to get more people to read your book is a great thing. :-)

Yes, I love The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure.

Cate Gardner said...

:D Natalie

I agree, Tony

Oh my god YES, Danielle. I can't tell you how many times I've watched both those movies.

Rats. You have to be in the States or Canada to enter. Curse ye, international postage fees.
