Antellus To Publish Nonfiction Book On Science Fiction Films
Antellus, a private independent publisher specializing in science fiction adventure and nonfiction books, will publish a list of the best and most important SF films of the 20th century.
Century is a compilation of synopses and production notes for films which author Theresa M. Moore has selected for their importance and influence on the most prominent writers and film makers today. Each synopsis is presented as an essay in the author's own words, and the production notes are gleaned from a variety of sources. Each film is presented with an essay on the book or story on which it was based, where possible. The book begins with the earliest film "The Lost World" in the 1920's and ends with the last important SF film of 1999, "The 13th Floor". It also includes important animated films of that century which relate to science fiction, such as "The Iron Giant".
"I wanted to choose only the best science fiction films for their relevence to social culture and also their impact on film making, both from a writer/director's perspective and also as a fan," author Moore said. "Due to the scope and magnitude of some of these films, the book will contain no photographic material, or it would be thick as an encyclopedia. Later, I may expand on some of the films in individual volumes depending on the time I have available."
The book will be published as a large volume, 8.5 x 11 inches, with cream paper for easy reading. Plans are to publish it in printed and ebook formats in February of 2013. For more information, please visit http://www.antellus.com/
