We are very happy to announce that we have just published 'Memos to a New Millennium: The Final Radio Plays of Norman Corwin.' This book presents, for the first time ever in print, a treasure-trove of radio plays spanning fifty years in the extraordinary career of radio’s most famous dramatist.
Subject matter for Corwin’s radio plays varied greatly. He was equally at ease writing light comedy replete with mischievous rhymes as he was in crafting history lessons that although written with poetic language, strike hard and fast, delivering their import with expert efficiency. Be it universal human rights, the power of prayer, the atomic bomb, the origins of a national holiday, the birth of the Statue of Liberty, the meaning of democracy and freedom in America, the struggle between science and magic in our world, or an earnest memo to the Third Millennium, Norman Corwin tackled it all with poise, humor, and, above all, conviction.
Beginning with Citizen of the World, his final production for the CBS Radio Network in July 1949, through his Peabody Award-winning years at United Nations Radio, and culminating with his National Public Radio series finale, Memos to a New Millennium broadcast on December 31, 1999, this book covers the last half of the twentieth century as only Norman Corwin could.

Dangerous Curves was named a Top 10 Best Silent Film Book in 2010 by the San Francisco Examiner, and that comes as no surprise, since this book is absolutely fascinating, and full of little-known facts.
Here's a little information from our website:
"We were like dragonflies. We seemed to be suspended effortlessly in the air, but in reality, our wings were beating very, very fast." - Mae Murray
"It is worse than folly for persons to imagine that this business is an easy road to money, to contentment, or to that strange quality called happiness." - Bebe Daniels
"A girl should realize that a career on the screen demands everything, promising nothing." - Helen Ferguson
On the screen, these young hopefuls became Agnes Ayres, Olive Borden, Grace Darmond, Elinor Fair, Juanita Hansen, Wanda Hawley, Natalie Joyce, Barbara La Marr, Martha Mansfield, Mary Nolan, Marie Prevost, Lucille Ricksen, Eve Southern, and Alberta Vaughn.
Dangerous Curves follows the precarious routes these young ladies took in their quest for fame and uncovers how some of the top actresses of the silent screen were used, abused, and discarded. Many, unable to let go of the spotlight after it had singed their very souls, came to a stop on that dead-end street, referred to by actress Anna Q. Nilsson as, Hollywood's Heartbreak Lane.
Pieced together using contemporary interviews the actresses gave, conversations with friends, relatives, and co-workers, and exhaustive research through scrapbooks, archives, and public records, Dangerous Curves offers an honest, yet compassionate, look at some of the brightest luminaries of the silent screen. The book is illustrated with over 150 photographs.

Master Hollywood Voice Over Actor Pens First Rate Autobiography By K.P. Lynne - Chicago, Illinois www.KPLynne.com
Joe Alaskey has carved out an intricate niche as one of America's foremost leading voice-over actors. Garnering the coveted Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Series, beating out industry greats such as Walter Cronkite, Nancy Cartwright, Henry Winkler and John Ritter, Joe Alaskey has become a living legend in the world of animation. His impressive resume reads like a "Who's Who?" of cartoon characters. A highly accomplished actor, he has achieved success as both a voice-over artist and a legitimate actor, appearing on stage, screen and television! With an illustrious resume that includes live theatre, television situation comedies, dramas, cartoons, game shows, motion pictures, stand up comedy, and a starring role on the 1980's sci-fi sitcom, Out of this World, Joe Alaskey has seen it all, and happily shares his fondest memories in a new book entitled, "That's Still Not All Folks," published and exceptionally packaged by Bear Manor Media.
As if his natural talents were not enough, Joe Alaskey is constantly challenging himself to excel in new endeavors, and he has done just that with his new autobiography, "That's Still Not All Folks." Once you pick up this book you simply cannot put it down again! Unlike typical gossip laden Hollywood style tell-alls, Joe Alaskey's autobiography is an exhilarating breath of fresh air, providing a witty, refreshingly classy account of a young man's ambition, talent, passion, drive, determination and ultimate rise to the very top of his craft and field.
The professional level caliber of Joe Alaskey's writing speaks directly to the heart, soul and funny bone, with a soft, down-to-earth, guy next door style. A highly polished writer and illustrator, in every sense of the word, Joe Alaskey's writing entertains, amuses and enlightens with his humorous, deliciously delightful, and at times heart warming stories and memoirs. Anyone who is passionate about animation, comedy, voice-over work, or the entertainment industry in general, will fall in love with this book. The author's encounters with some of the most recognized names in the Hollywood entertainment industry are chronicled in a positive and uplifting manner.
Devoid of any unnecessary mean spiritedness or gossip, "That's Still Not All Folks," serves as a blast from the past, while reveling in the present and looking ahead to the future. One of the many highlights in this book is a previously unpublished short story, penned by this multitalented performer and playwright, who has written numerous volumes of fiction, stand up comedy scripts and dramatic plays for the stage. If Alaskey's delightfully bittersweet story "Professional Courtesy" is any indication of the exceptional level of the creativity lying in the bottom of his closet, he better dust off those manuscripts, and start sharing his stories with the world.
The title of his autobiography basically sums it up, "That's Still Not All Folks!" In the case of Joe Alaskey this book better not be "all" and should represent the beginning of a bright new future in publishing books, play writing and performing!

We are very proud that BearManor author David Del Valle has been interviewed for the latest edition of Fangoria Magazine.

Thank you to Dan Van Neste, author of our Book of the Week, 'The Whistler', who has told us that his book has been reviewed in the the current issue of Scarlet the Film Magazine (Issue #8 -- Feb/March/April, 2012).
"Richard Yokley has published three highly entertaining books: 'TV Firefighters', 'Emergency! Behind the Scene' and 'The First Responders of Television'. For those that are hopelessly addicted to the 1970s television series Emergency!, Richards book leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the facts surrounding the series and its stars. Still hugely popular among the show's long time fans, the book has become the 'bible' for those that are die-hard devotees of Johnny Gage and Roy DeSoto.
His most recent book, 'The First Responders of Television', takes a journal back into the history of television to explore the shows that feature first responders of all types. From the infancy of those first black and white TV sets of the late 1940s and '50s up to the modern wide-screen hi-def marvels of today. Richard not only explores each television show with in-depth information and facts, but calls upon those that were involved in the production of the shows to provide further clarity of the facts surrounding each production."

This week our featured book is 'The Whistler: Stepping into the Shadows' by Dan Van Neste.
Thanks to Philip J Riley for sending us the following photo, which shows him at a book signing with 7 time Academy Award Winning make-up artist Rick Baker, who did the back artwork for one of Philip's books. (Philip is on the right; Rick is on the left.)
Congratulations to Richard Yokley who has received a stellar review from Lee Goldberg, noted author and television producer, for his book 'The First Responders of Television.'
Linda J Alexander, author of 'A Maverick Life: The Jack Kelly story' recently took part in the 'First Saturday Event' in Frederick, MD. The BearManor blog caught up with her yesterday to see what it was all about. Here's what Linda had to tell us:
"Frederick, MD, USA is a lovely historical town which reveres its past, as well as its artsy nature. Francis Scott Key, who wrote the United States’ National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, “lives” down the street from me. Downtown Frederick is always abuzz, particularly on weekends, with never a dearth of things to do. On the First Saturday of April—hence the event’s name—the city rolls out sidewalks for the likes of street entertainment, good food, shops open into the evening … and even sometimes a related book author such as myself. This First Saturday event, for 2012, hosted the theme of “Frederick Goes To Hollywood” and I, and Jack Kelly, had to be a part of it. Here’s the webpage, with my part listed:
“Celebrities” walked around town with paparazzi following. I saw Austin Powers and Marilyn Monroe a number of times. Others were Rodney Dangerfield, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Audrey Hepburn. Old Hollywood movies were shown on one of the city’s main streets. Bars and restaurants offer themed drink specials. Amidst this fun and revelry, I was set up next to a DJ playing great music, with friends and strangers stopping by to talk about Jack Kelly, and purchase my book, A Maverick Life: The Jack Kelly Story. As a survivor in complete remission from Lymphoma, I chose to donate a dollar from each book sale to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It was a cool, windy evening, and though I had to nearly tie down everything on my table, the weather was crisp and clear, and the atmosphere conducive to an evening full of stars, entertainment, and great fun."
