What is this? Just me having trouble getting rid of books, so I’m creating a quick memory before I send the little guys to the red cross thriftstore in Tórshavn. May they can be of some use to others.
#21 Masters of Animation – John Halas
As someone with a love for films, I was naturally interested in animation. I remember loving Wizards by Ralph Bakshi.
#22 A Dry White Season – André Brink
A fine critique of apartheid. Worth a read.
#23 Nostradamus – Jean-Charles de Fontbrune
Yes, I was intrigued by Nostradamus as a young lad. Today, not so much.
#24 Neuromancer – William Gibson
Yeah, I just didn’t like it. Ok, kidding. I loved it. For some reason I had two copies lying around, so this one will venture forth and hopefully expand somebody’s mind.
#25 The Film Director – Richard L. Bare
I was very interested in filmmaking in the late 80s and early 90s and took whatever courses I could find, but my interest was slowly overtaken by stronger interests in music and literature. I bought this book while in the States in 1989.
#26 Making Movies – John Russo
Another filmmaking book.
#27 A Glossary of Literary Terms – M. H. Abrams
A remnant from my time studying English at the university. This is a very good book, which I never use anymore. Whenever I find myself wondering about the difference between allegory, alliteration and allusion I use google.,
#28 The Language of Advertising – Angela Goddard
Also a remnant from my university days. Fine book, as far as I remember.
#29 The Star Trek Encyclopedia – Michael Okuda, Denise Okuda and Debbie Mirek
Ever since I saw my first episodes of TNG, I’ve been a fan. Episodes were hard to come by in the Faroe Islands, but our local mall had a video store (Top Shop), run by a guy called Joe Golightly and it had a few of the Season 1 episodes for rent. This was in the late eighties. When I went to the states in ’89, TNG was on pretty much every night. That cemented my fandom, resistance was indeed futile.
