Maybe I'm biased -- okay, I am biased -- but I adore the films of Mario Bava (even the ones other people seem to hate) and regard him a true no-budget genius. He is, in my opinion, a director unsurpassed in horrific elegance, style and beauty. Yes, I could easily say the same about Argento (I do love him ever so), but Bava is the Grand-daddy. Alright, enough of my hero-worshipping... I'll cut to the point. I've been eagerly awaiting Tim Lucas' book All the Colors of the Dark: The Films of Mario Bava for some time now. It seems that in every new commentary track or liner notes that Mr. Lucas contributes to Bava DVD releases, he makes a brief reference to the book; and each time it's release date is pushed back more. Now, I'm not one to be pushy ( I'll take quality over expedience any day) , but where is this book? Does anyone know if it's coming out this fall as last promised? Is anyone else excited to read the first real book about Mario to be published in the States?
