Little Elf  A Celebration of Harry Langdon

Harry Langdon, a comic who appeared in Vaudeville, silent movies, and sound film comedies, held a unique position in Hollywood history. After a slow start in movies, he joined Keystone, the famous Mack Sennett studio. Langdon’s screen character was quite different from the broad slapstick that was popular at the time. When paired with director Frank Capra in films such as The Strong Man (1926), Tramp,Tramp, Tramp (1926), and Long Pants (1927), he rivaled Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd. Chuck Harter and Michael J. Hayde’s biography includes a comprehensive Filmography. Lavishly illustrated. "You can hear the laughter flowing through the book. Langdon's comic timing was about taking enough time to figure out a situation. The reader should do the same, and not rush through these wonderful pages." - Brad Linaweaver, Mondo Cult "[The authors] have done a great service for comedy aficionados and historians, offering up a cornucopia of information on every one of Langdon’s screen appearances, rare photos, vintage magazine articles, and more. If you have any interest in Harry Langdon, this book is invaluable. - Leonard Maltin in Leonard Maltin’s Movie Crazy

The A to Z of Fantasy Literature

Once upon a time all literature was fantasy, set in a mythical past when magic existed, animals talked, and the gods took an active hand in earthly affairs. As the mythical past was displaced in Western estimation by the historical past and novelists became increasingly preoccupied with the present, fantasy was temporarily marginalized until the late 20th century, when it enjoyed a spectacular resurgence in every stratum of the literary marketplace. Stableford provides an invaluable guide to this sequence of events and to the current state of the field. The chronology tracks the evolution of fantasy from the origins of literature to the 21st century. The introduction explains the nature of the impulses creating and shaping fantasy literature, the problems of its definition and the reasons for its changing historical fortunes. The dictionary includes cross-referenced entries on more than 700 authors, ranging across the entire historical spectrum, while more than 200 other entries describe the fantasy subgenres, key images in fantasy literature, technical terms used in fantasy criticism, and the intimately convoluted relationship between literary fantasies, scholarly fantasies, and lifestyle fantasies. The book concludes with an extensive bibliography that ranges from general textbooks and specialized accounts of the history and scholarship of fantasy literature, through bibliographies and accounts of the fantasy literature of different nations, to individual author studies and useful websites.

Utopia Avenue

'A stand-out triumph' - The Sunday Times The Number One bestselling novel by the author of CLOUD ATLAS, 'one of the most brilliantly inventive writers of this, or any country' (Independent). Utopia Avenue might be the most curious British band you've never heard of. Emerging from London's psychedelic scene in 1967, folksinger Elf Holloway, blues bassist Dean Moss, guitar virtuoso Jasper de Zoet and jazz drummer Griff Griffin together created a unique sound, with lyrics that captured their turbulent times. The band produced only two albums in two years, yet their musical legacy lives on. This is the story of Utopia Avenue's brief, blazing journey from Soho clubs and draughty ballrooms to the promised land of America, just when the Summer of Love was receding into something much darker - a multi-faceted tale of dreams, drugs, love, sexuality, madness and grief; of stardom's wobbly ladder and fame's Faustian pact; and of the collision between youthful idealism and jaded reality as the Sixties drew to a close. Above all, this bewitching novel celebrates the power of music to connect across divides, define an era and thrill the soul. 'The great rock and roll novel - an epic love letter to the greatest music ever made and the book the music has always deserved' Tony Parsons
