Genre Films for the Summer 2010 Season: May

In May a couple of sequels, as well as a movie based on a video game will be released. From what the trailers show, the look like they’ll be a lot of fun to watch. And … hold onto your seats … George Romero is bringing us yet another film about the undead. Iron Man […]

Genre Films for the Summer 2010 Season: April

Yesterday, I listed the genre films that were in theaters as of March 2010. Now I’m moving into the future! Here are the genre films coming out next month. Clash of the Titans “Release the Kraken!” I just love that line … and in this remake of the 1981 film starring Harry Hamlin, Liam Neeson […]

Genre Films for the Summer 2010 Season: March

Nothing transports you to another world quite like a movie. I just saw Avatar last week and was blown away by how real Pandora felt. And, because I saw the film in a movie theater (imagine that!), I also got to see a bunch of trailers for upcoming films. I must say that this summer […]

Travel Reads: Guardian of the Dead

Karen Healey’s debut novel Guardian of the Dead works as a Travel Read on two levels: Not only is it an entertaining read, but it also transports you to two worlds … a campus town in New Zealand and the fairy world of Maori. When I first started to read Guardian of the Dead, I […]

Travel Reads: Dead Fred, Flying Lunchboxes, and the Good Luck Circle

Proceeds from book sales go to benefit Frank McKinney’s Caring Home Project Foundation. An amphibious shark, strangler fig trees and blood red remora … oh my! That’s what Ppeekk (pronounced “Peekie”) has to contend with after she moves to Florida and meets Dead Fred. Dead Fred, a small and crispy fish, isn’t really dead … […]

What If TGT was on TV?

It is a dream of mine that The Genre Traveler be a TV show … maybe something like Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations … only focused on genre locations. I’ve been dreaming a lot about it lately and I thought, what if someone came to me and said, “O.K. We want to make this happen and […]

Next Quarterly Albany-Colonie SFF Extravaganza in March
