Sunday Cinema: The 10th Victim

The 10th Victim is a 1965 film starring Marcello Mastroianni and Ursula Andress. It’s based on Robert Sheckley’s 1953 short story “Seventh Victim”. Sheckley later published a novelization of the film (The 10th Victim) as well as two sequels Victim Prime (1987) and Hunter/Victim (1988).

The premise is that war has been replaced by legalized murder games called The Big Hunt, which provide sport and entertainment for the masses.

The eBook for The Shore of Women by Pamela Sargent is on sale for $1.99!

This classic work of feminist science fiction finds the world reordered. Following a nuclear holocaust, women have used advanced technology to expel men from their cities, bringing them back only for purposes of loveless reproduction under the guise of powerful goddesses. When one young woman, Birana, questions her society’s deception, she finds herself exiled amongst the very men she has been taught to scorn. As Birana and her reluctant male protector Arvil grow closer, their feelings for each other just might mend their fractured world—if they somehow manage to survive.

This deal is available to today only, so if you want it, pick it up while you can.

Here’s the cover and synopsis for Kelly Link’s upcoming collection of short fiction Get in Trouble: Stories.

Patrick Swenson began Talebones magazine in 1995, and in 2000 started Fairwood Press, a small SF book press. Ultra Thin Man is his first novel.

The Marriage of Sci-Fi and Noir

by Patrick Swenson

My novel The Ultra Thin Man has readers likening it to Dashiell Hammett’s The Thin Man, and in truth, Hammett’s novel is a definite influence, as is the film of the same name. I’ve also seen a number of comments along the lines of: “I hope Nick and Nora at least have a cameo!” They do not, I’m afraid. In fact, only one character makes a cameo, and it was quite by accident. Dorothy, the daughter of the prime suspect in The Thin Man, is often called by a shorter name. In the first chapter of The Ultra Thin Man, I introduce “Dorie,” a supposed terrorist movement sympathizer. The spelling of her name is different, however. I’d forgotten about her name in Hammett’s book until a year after I finished writing my own. I reread Hammett’s novel after that, and then I remembered.

In my slowly progressing travels into the Warhammer 40K books, the Space Marine stories are, I suspect, my next stop. (I’m looking at you, Space Marine Omnibus by Christian Dunn!) Not far behind is this upcoming book, Angels of Death, an omnibus which contains the previously-released Space Marine books Architect of Fate (an anthology edited by Christian Dunn) and The Siege of Castellax (a novel by C.L. Werner). Man, how I love the feel of a big fat WH40K omnibus in my greedy little hands…

Ahem.

Here’s the synopsis for the upcoming Angels of Death omnibus. (And see covers for the omnibus and the two original books — and what the heck, the Space Marine Omnibus — after the jump…)
