  1. On the subject of book covers, the Robert Lesser Collection of Pulp Art just went on display at the New Britain Museum of American Art in Connecticut.

    Lots of Shadow, Tarzan and Doc Savage cover paintings, some Virgil Finlay and Hannes Bok, as well as war, westerns, and true crime.

    I heard Lesser talk last night about how 99% of the covers are lost forever. He’s also donating the collection to the museum.

  2. “I thought, what a decision to make, since it obviously is a decision not to make use of the popularity I have to ensure the movie has good box office. It didn’t seem to be a wise business decision.”

    That’s pretty funny to me. I think the Shat has a good sense of his perceived egotistical personality. anyone want to bet he is in it and it’s just going to be a big surprise?

  3. Jeff, thanks for the info!

    A_Z, I wondered the same thing about Shatner…especially since he’s so vocal about not being in it.
