I think a career-spanning, all-encompassing book on Castellari would be most welcome. The Midnight Media book is okay, but nothing more than an interview padded out with stills and coverart.

Wish FAB Press would have a go at something this rather than that Satanic Sluts stuff  they recently put out,i remember a rumor a few years back that they were going to do a book on Lenzi but nothing came of it or their repress of the Deodato book which would've been a winner if released at the same time as the Grindhouse SE.

It would be great if a decent publisher like Fab did a series of books on Italian directors. I'd buy them, and I know most of you lot would too. A book on Lenzi or Martino would be the logical place to start, as the ir work covers so many different genres, there'd probalby be a lot interest.

Oh yeah, I`d be thrilled to see a series of books on Italian directors, as well as an ongoing series on some of the character actors like the Rossi book. As far as directors go, Lenzi and Martino would be most welcome, as well as folks like Mario Caiano who also worked in several genres. Appreciations of people like Luciano Pigozzi aka Alan Collins for one would be nice too.

Matt Blake was telling me the other day that he interviewed Mario Caiano awhile back and that interview will be included in his new upcoming book on obscure cult cinema 'The Wild Eye',there's also an Italian lannguage interview with him in Cine 70 #2 with some pictures of him at work.

The Rossi book was great and a very brave book for Fab to get behind, when you consider how obscure a character actor he was. I really hope they managed to shift enough to make similar books a viable proposition for them.

Yeah it was great they took a chance on it,really well designed and put together as well.
As Andrew said something on the prolific Luciano Pigozzi (Alan Collins) would be most welcome,this guy seems to have turned up in just about every genre Italian cinema had to offer.

Thanks for the Pigozzi photo Stephen! That`s great news about Matt Blake`s next book - I had seen a vague mention that he is working on one but didn`t know what it was about. Looking forward to the Caiano interview - Eye In The Labyrinth is a fave of mine. I`ve been reading his blog, great stuff. Here`s a link for anyone who doesn`t already know about it: http://thewildeye.co.uk/   I only recently decided to take a deeper look into Eurospy films so I picked up Matt`s Eurospy Guide and highly recommend it.

I agree, Paul, it was brave of FAB to do that Rossi book. It`s gotten some fairly mainstream notices too, the Canadian horror magazine Rue Morgue gave it a positive review only recently. Not a big fan of this gore`n`metal type magazine but still, it`s great they`re helping get the word out on that book.

Agreed.   ::)The Italian only book wasn't so great either (I don't understand more than a few phrases/words in Italian) but I got rid of that pretty quickly.

It would be nice to have something a la Glittering Images with at least English and Italian (and Spanish would be nice).

Andrew, I like your idea about FAB press doing books on a series of directors (I'd vote for actors too, like the Rossi book which I've seen but don't own).

I'd love to see a book on Sergio Martino as well as Castellari.

Yeah, Kim I`d love to see a study on Martino or Lenzi, but since dvd interviews do exist with those 2, I`d be even more interested in seeing in-depth appreciations of folks like Luigi Bazzoni, Massimo Dallamano, etc...

I did start a book on Castellari and got round to working on complete credits for all his movies. I must finish it after I... finish book two.
