Walden and Civil Disobedience
Henry David Thoreau reflects on life, politics, and society in these two inspiring masterworks.

In 1845, Thoreau moved to a cabin that he built with his own hands along the shores of Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Shedding the trivial ties that he felt bound much of humanity, Thoreau reaped from the land both physically and mentally, and pursued truth in the quiet of nature. In Walden, he explains how separating oneself from the world of men can truly awaken the sleeping self. Thoreau holds fast to the notion that you have not truly existed until you adopt such a lifestyle—and only then can you reenter society, as an enlightened being.
These simple but profound musings—as well as “Civil Disobedience,” his protest against the government’s interference with civil liberty—have inspired many to embrace his philosophy of individualism and love of nature. More than a century and a half later, his message is more timely than ever.

The John McPhee Reader

The John McPhee Reader, first published in 1976, is comprised of selections from the author's first twelve books. In 1965, John McPhee published his first book, A Sense of Where You Are; a decade later, he had published eleven others. His fertility, his precision and grace as a stylist, his wit and uncanny brilliance in choosing subject matter, his crack storytelling skills have made him into one of our best writers: a journalist whom L.E. Sissman ranked with Liebling and Mencken, who Geoffrey Wolff said "is bringing his work to levels that have no measurable limit," who has been called "a master craftsman" so many times that it is pointless to number them.

Monster! #12: December 2014
Monster! is now a year old, and counting. That means this is our 12th big issue of 2014, and it’s our biggest yet at over 100 digest-sized pages! And have we got a whole bunch of goodies in store for you…and just in time for Xmas, too! Co-editor Tim Paxton contributes Part 7 of his continuous coverage of the monster movie output of India’s prolific filmmaking family, the Ramsays; the main focus in M! #12 being The House of Ramsay’s latest horror offering, NEIGHBOURS: THEY ARE VAMPIRES. In his ongoing Creature Feature series, Louis Paul eyeballs a number of choice (and not-so-choice) “eye creature” flicks, including—natch!—THE EYE CREATURES and THE CRAWLING EYE. Elsewhere, over 20+ pages, fellow seasoned zine scene scribe Stephen R. Bissette gives his fond reminiscences and a whole bunch of fascinating behind-the-scenes backstory on the humble-but-loveable British irradiated aquatic dino epic THE GIANT BEHEMOTH, as well as taking in a number other monstrous dinosaur movies in the process. It’s zombies, zombies and—yes!—still more zombies for Adam Parker-Edmondston’s lightning-swift if super-stuffed, 10-page look back at some of the odder walking dead flicks to be had…and, as you can well imagine, there are a lot! In addition, Steve Fenton gives some well-deserved advance coverage of a proposed indie Hollywood biopic which is currently in pre-production whose subject is famed stuntman, cowboy star, “go-to gorilla guy” and frequent monster-suit performer Ray “Crash” Corrigan (who amongst many other things played IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE. That fact alone ensures him immortality!). We’ve also got a diverse cross-section of “on-theme” movie reviews from our longest roster of contributors yet, also including Dennis Capicik, Greg Goodsell, Brian Harris, Troy Howarth, Christopher William Koenig, Mike T. Lyddon, Eric Messina, and Christos Mouroukis. Individual movies reviewed this issue include the ’50s reptile-man schlocker THE ALLIGATOR PEOPLE, the outrageous ’80s UK sci-fi/horror mindblower LIFEFORCE, the wacky Filipino kiddie monster fantasy BOY GOD, the arty late-’60s Argentine vampire flick BLOOD OF THE VIRGINS, and the hugely entertaining Japanese kaiju classic, THE WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS. Other titles covered this ish are THE VALDEMAR LEGACY (both 1 & 2), ABOMINABLE, DAY OF THE MUMMY and CRY WILDERNESS, plus, as always, in our back pages we provide detailed data about the video availability of each title covered. And not only that, but once again we have some stunning original B&W pen-brush-and-ink line art from mucho-talented comics artist Denis St. John, who also contributes a guest editorial too. As per usual, it all comes heavily illustrated with rare poster art, ad-mats and photographs, and is packed to the gills with obscure factoids and trivia. Hell, we’ve even got footnotes, too! So if any of this sounds up your alley, by all means give us a spin.

Monster! #14: EQUINOX Roundtable
The main meat of MONSTER! #14 is our nearly 30-page open forum about both the original 1967 version and the "revamped" 1970 reedit of that enduring no-frills fan fave, EQUINOX, featuring fab stop-motion-animated beasties by David Allen. Contributing more than their ten cents' worth to this roundtable discussion are Christopher William Koenig, Michael Hauss, Mike T. Lyddon, Steve Fenton, John Szpunar, John Harrison and Stephen R. Bissette. In addition to this lengthy look back on said largely woefully underappreciated if far-from-forgotten monster movie classic, we also have our usual grab-bag of assorted reviews of other monster movies -- some classic, others, well...not-so – including write-ups of THE MONOLITH MONSTERS (1957), PARASITE (1982), DEADLY EYES (1982), THE DEADLY SPAWN (1983), TERRORVISION (1985), MONSTER IN THE CLOSET (1986), THE LAST FRANKENSTEIN (1991), FLIGHT TO HELL (2003), ALIEN LOCKDOWN (2004), 13 EERIE (2013) and SUBURBAN GOTHIC (2014), plus several more titles besides. Reviewers include Dennis Capicik, Eric Messina, Jason “Skunkape” Cook, Michael Elvidge, Steven Ronquillo, Matt Bradshaw and Adam Parker-Edmondston. As well, Troy Howarth contributes an article about the BLACULA two-pack, starring the late, great William Marshall, while Louis Paul covers some more Hammer Films shockers in his ongoing column entitled Creature Features. Elsewhere, M! co-editor Tim Paxton gives us Pt. 9 of his ongoing series on "The House of Ramsay", India's foremost purveyors of horror/monster cinema; in this issue he covers 3D SAAMRI (1985) and AAKHRI CHEEKH (1991). We've also got some more snazzy original art by Denis St. John and Matt Bradshaw, plus detailed info about the video availability of all the main titles covered in the issue. And last but by no means least, we've even dug up some dirt on that elusive "lost" Euro critter flick, MUTANO THE HORRIBLE!

A Thoreau Gazetteer (Princeton Legacy Library)

"The primary aim of this book is to give its readers an idea of the places Thoreau describes in his own books. The importance of those places will depend upon the readers' critical views of Thoreau. To those who read him literally, the maps will provide a convenient way of following his travels in Massachusetts, Maine, Canada, Cape Cod, Minnesota―locations that he actually visited in his life. To those who read him figuratively, the maps will depict symbolic rivers, ponds, mountains―settings that are the imaginative products of his art."―From the Introduction to A Thoreau Gazetteer.

Originally published in 1970.

The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
