It Came from Bob's Basement : Exploring the Science Fiction and Monster Movie Archive of Bob Burns

Paperback - 144 pages (November 2000) Chronicle Books;
ISBN: 0811825728

Book Description :
Known to give up precious living space to display a full-size creature from the Black Lagoon or a pair of Frankenstein's clod-hoppers, Bob Burns is the patron saint of special effects for B movies. His storied basement houses the largest private collection of props, models, sketches, storyboards, and other bits of nostalgic debris from a century's worth of films. It Came from Bob's Basement is a colorful journey through the vivid and campy world of fantastic cinema and a true tribute to a man who has dedicated his life to the preservation of incredible movie artifacts-from the original King Kong's metallic skeleton to the life-size Alien Queen. Including insider stories from the sets of favorites like The She Creature, It Conquered the World, and Plan Nine from Outer Space, Bob Burns brings fellow fantasy buffs up close with props and artwork from the greatest (and most outrageous) sci-fi films of all time. A story told with genuinely irresistible enthusiasm, Bob's Basement honors the beloved cult classics that have shaped movie history.

Mr. Young Goes to Boston by Alan Young
Paperback - 134 pages 1 edition (October 1998)
Helen M. Wright Publishing; ISBN: 18865050635

This book is one of the most recent to be published exposing conditions at the Christian Science Church Center. In the early seventies, Alan Young, well known for his career in acting, went to Boston to serve the organization as Director of Communications, and later as a lecturer on the Board of Lectureship. While audiences are familiar with Mr. Young as an entertainer and lecturer, many are unaware of the treatment he received while working for the Board of Directors in Boston. His book is filled with humor and pathos, poignant in its account of his experiences at the hands of an ecclesiastical hierarchy. His book adds yet another first-hand account of conditions in Boston during the years when the members were first beginning to realize that things were not right in the organization. Having become disillusioned with the organization, he has watched the steady decline of the Church over the past twenty years with great dismay. He puts into words a growing realization among many Christian Scientists both within and without the Church — that the time has come when we can no longer rely on Boston to carry the movement forward. We must do our own thinking and our own work. Mr. Young includes a shocking account of the fate of Pleasant View, Mrs. Eddy's home in Concord, New Hampshire.
