The Fantastic Voyage of Billy the Bullet

Author: Mitchell Landsman

Publisher: N.A

Category: Comics & Graphic Novels

The Fantastic Voyage of Billy the Bullet is one of the most ambitious undertakings ever by Image. Our first horizontal format book and our first foray into something this daring and unique. Although it looks and reads like one, this is not a children's book. It is rather, a wonderful send-up of a children's book as we follow Billy's life, in engaging couplets, from the smelting factory, through the barrel of a gun and into the body of a human and out again. What could be gruesome in less deft hands is handled with style, humor and enormous aplomb. Like A Modest Proposal and Where the Wind Blows, The Fantastic Voyage of Billy the Bullet wears a charming disguise over its savagely satirical core.

Sail Away: Whitesnake's Fantastic Voyage

Author: Martin Popoff

Publisher: Soundcheck Books

ISBN: 0957570082

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 224

View: 3006

In the first ever full biography of Whitesnake, top music writer Martin Popoff tells the tale of rock legend David Coverdale from his Deep Purple roots to the two distinct incarnations of his ὔber-creation. Whitesnake began life as a UK based blues rock outfit, until the lad from England’s chilly east coast upped sticks to America’s sunny west coast in search of fame, fortune, big videos and even bigger hair. He found them all, and 1987’s self-titled album went platinum eight times in the US alone, before their bright star waned in the face of dowdy grunge. In his 45th book, Martin has interviewed 30 major characters – including Coverdale – to piece together the band’s convoluted history. He traces the hirings and firings, the splits and reunions, the image changes which evolved over time enabling Coverdale and co. to stay ahead of the pack for over five decades. If you’ve rocked out to anthems such as “Here I Go Again”, “Fool For Your Loving”, “Still Of The Night”, or The Heart Of The City”, you’ll want to read about the man and the band that created them.

A Microscopic Submarine in My Blood

Science Based on Fantastic Voyage

Author: Sylvain Martel

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 1315340712

Category: Medical

Page: 160

View: 9103

This book describes at the introductory level how modern technology has made the scenario of the classic science-fiction movie Fantastic Voyage a reality. The movie is about a submarine and its crew members being shrunk to microscopic size and ventured into the body. Exactly 50 years following the release of the film, such reality takes the form of a medical interventional room capable of mimicking this scenario. Based on 15 years of intensive research and development by the world-leading team in this specific field, the book goes through the scenes of the movie while explaining how it is implemented in this first-of-a-kind interventional facility. This is the first book that explains the fundamentals of navigation of therapeutic agents in the vascular network. The scope of the book is twofold: (1) to initiate readers into various technologies, including, but not limited to, nanotechnology, robotics, and biochemistry (more importantly, it shows how critical the integration of all these disciplines is to solving problems that indeed require a multidisciplinary environment); (2) to inspire the younger generation by showing that science and technology can bring one everywhere with the power to transform fiction to reality that can help humankind.

..".Breathtaking skill ... interesting dialogue, a carefully constructed story, and an appealing message. Bixby should be better known." -Gary Westfahl Jerome Bixby (1923-1998) was a highly regarded professional science fiction magazine editor and writer remembered for his "yeoman work in raising the standards of the science fiction action story, whose own stories, though few, are much sought after by discriminating readers." (Science Fiction Stories, 1953). Mirror, Mirror, the first collection of Jerome Bixby's science fiction in nearly fifty years, showcases the best work from this motion picture and television writer's journeyman years as a pulp magazine writer. It features four stories made immortal by their adaptation for Star Trek and The Twilight Zone. Elements from two of these stories, "One-Way Street" and "Mirror, Mirror," were woven into Bixby's Hugo Award winning Star Trek episode, which gave birth to the evil mirror universe populated by sinister facsimiles of Kirk, Spock, the crew of the Enterprise, and the entire Federation. Another, "Cargo to Calisto," became the basis for the Star Trek episode "By Any Other Name." Meanwhile, "It's a Good Life" won immortality as an episode of the The Twilight Zone. Plus eleven more irresistible science fictional masterpieces from the pen of Jerome Bixby. Mirror, Mirror was edited, and is personally introduced, by his son, screenwriter and producer Emerson Bixby. "Good entertainment." -Analog
