You guys all know Heather Wixson. You all love Heather Wixson. She has busted her ass over the last year to write her first book, Monster Squad: Celebrating the Artists Behind Cinema's Most Memorable Creatures, a collection of interviews with so many great makeup and effects artists. I have read most of the book and I can say that the conversations are really fun and informative and made me appreciate just what an exciting time the '80s and '90s were for this stuff. The fact that so many artists were simultaneously working on the same projects and in direct competition with one another lends itself to some great stories and insights into how the effects were achieved and how some of our favorite movie moments came together. It's a book I would love reading even if it wasn't written by one of my closest friends.
And now the book is for sale! After months of hard work and waiting, everyone can support their favorite top critic by buying a copy of Monster Squad. In fact, buy one for yourself and one for a friend or family member! It makes a great holiday gift! Be sure to use the Amazon link below to directly support Heather as she begins writing the next installment. She's the best and we are so, so proud of her. Congratulations, Heather!
