    My first book for I.B. Tauris was published in the UK 10 years ago today. ‘Once Upon a Time in the Italian West: The Filmgoers’ Guide to Spaghetti Westerns’ was the first of what has become a series of volumes looking at genres through ‘great’ (or at least, in my opinion, very good) films. Is "The 39 Steps" based on a book? The Thirty-nine Steps is a novel by Scottish adventure writer John Buchan [], the first of six novels featuring action hero Richard Hannay. The other five novels include Greenmantle (), Mr Standfast (), The Three Hostages (), The Courts of the Morning (), and The Island of Sheep. Hellraiser - 30th Anniversary September - September 11 September marks the 30th anniversary of the UK opening of the first Hellraiser movie, Clive Barker's big screen directorial debut and a movie that challenged the late s trend for stalk-and-slash horror movies.
