I recently received the deluxe edition of the anthology The Madness of Dr Caligari, edited by Joe Pulver, published by Fedogan and Bremer, encased in a slip cover, signed by all the contributors, and with beautiful artwork on the endpapers by Nick Gucker. What a beauty!

On Friday I went to the showing of the Norwegian monster movie TrollHunter (Trolljegeren, 2010), as part of the Galway Film Fleadh. It’s written by André Øvredal and Håvard S. Johansen, and directed by Øvredal.
