Tachyon tidbits featuring James Morrow, David G. Hartwell & Jacob Weisman, and Nancy Springer
The latest reviews and mentions of Tachyon titles and authors from around the web.
At GEEK MAMAS, Candy Keane mentions James Morrow’s THE ASYLUM OF DR. CALIGARI in her glowing review of The Short Story Book Club.
The Short Story Book Club sent a little surprise package with a card and small journal. I love notebooks and making lists so I thought it was a nice little gift. The book club is a monthly subscription box that comes with a book, newsletter, comment cards and themed treats with each box. The theme when I did my unboxing video was “weird and wonderful” and the book was THE ASYLUM OF DR. CALIGARI by James Morrow.
James Holder on his vlog mentions David G. Hartwell and Jacob Weisman’s THE SWORD & SORCERY ANTHOLOGY and reviews three of the stories (starting at around 7:01).
For SYFY WIRE, Josh Weiss reveals more about the forthcoming film Enola Holmes, which is based on Nancy Springer’s popular series of books about Sherlock Holmes’ little sister and stars Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, and Helena Bonham Carter.
Based on the hit book series by Nancy Springer, the film is directed by Killing Eve and Fleabag alum, Harry Bradbeer. While we have yet to see any trailers or production stills from the highly-anticipated project, SYFY WIRE does have a magical verbal teaser from the movie’s composer, Daniel Pemberton (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Birds of Prey).
“Enola Holmes, I’m working on right now and that, for me, is kind of interesting because I’m doing quite a conventional straight orchestral score, which is fun for me because I don’t normally do that,” he tells SYFY WIRE. “And so, it’s just a way of saying I’m gonna do something different from what you’d expect. It’s a really fun, heartwarming adventure film with Millie Bobby Brown. [It’s] very British and it’s kind of got the sort of magic of Harry Potter in a way. So that’s been really fun.”
The Potter comparison sounds about right since the screenplay was written by Jack Thorne, the man who brought us Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Pemberton was also kind enough to play the movie’s main theme over the phone for us. SYFY WIRE is the first outlet in the world to have heard it, but unfortunately, we can’t share any details of what the cue entails at this time.
