24 Frames into the Future

by John Scalzi

Availability: Out of Print

In this book, collecting many of his essays on Science Fiction films, you can read Scalzi's thoughts on movies, how they're produced, and how storytelling differs between movies and print.

Dust jacket by Daniel dos Santos

Published by NESFA Press

24 Frames into the Future: Scalzi on Science Fiction Film is the 2012 Boskone Book by Guest of Honor John Scalzi. John Scalzi's first job was not actually writing a science fiction novel; rather, he was a film critic for the Fresno Bee. Only years later did he write Old Man's War, his critically acclaimed first novel. In this book, collecting many of his essays on Science Fiction films, you can read Scalzi's thoughts on movies, how they're produced, and how storytelling differs between movies and print. You'll get to read his prognostications about the Oscars and Hugos, and what he felt about how the awards actually turned out--not to mention why "show business" is not "show art". Scalzi also has a lot to say about that rarified universe outside SF, and he also puts into perspective the way it has both taken from SF's culture and fashioned it. The full-color dust jacket illustration is by Daniel dos Santos, the Boskone 49 Official Artist, and the dust jacket design is by Alice N. S. Lewis.
