New Book: "Apocalypse Then"

by Armand Vaquer





A friend dating back to my G-FAN days has published a new book in paperback.

The title of the book is Apocalypse Then (a play on the title of a Robert Duvall/Marlon Brando war movie) by Mike Bogue (ISBN-13: 978-1476668413 and ISBN-10: 1476668418),

The cover is by another friend dating back to my G-FAN days, Todd Tennant.

The book is a look back at atomic science-fiction movies from 1951 to 1967 from both sides of the Pacific.

Here's the synopsis from Amazon.com:
The United States, the only country to have dropped the bomb, and Japan, the only one to have suffered its devastation, understandably portray the nuclear threat differently on film. American science fiction movies of the 1950s and 1960s generally proclaim that it is possible to put the nuclear genie back in the bottle. Japanese films of the same period assert that once freed the nuclear genie can never again be imprisoned. This book examines genre films from the two countries released between 1951 and 1967 including Godzilla (1954), The Mysterians (1957), The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), On the Beach (1959), The Last War (1961) and Dr. Strangelove (1964) to show the view from both sides of the Pacific."
The book is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
