persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

Friday, July 27, 2007

LEESTEIN wrote about "Eye of Argon", which is a story written by a sixteen year old, that appeared in a fanzine. It was enthusiastic, clumsy, eager and awkward. It tries too hard and it is unintentionally funny. THE WEREWOLF (etc), was written by a professional writer working for a rag called THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. There is a vast amount of difference here: the Argon story is kind of convulted and verbose, while WEREWOLF is simplistic and breezy. Leo Guild, the author tagged with writing WEREWOLF, also wrote biographies of various Hollywood types. On eBay there's the horror called THE LOVES OF LIBERACE, which the seller wants $75.00.

For Eye of Aargon.
