Artist Reimagines David Bowie Songs as Old Pulp Fiction Book Covers. By Emma Taggart on April 11, 2019. Please read our disclosure for more info. When LA-based screenwriter Todd Alcott isn’t writing for feature films, he’s working on his artistic side project. He merges his love of pulp fiction with music to create David Bowie-inspired vintage comic book covers.

David Bowie’s band perform on stage during the 2016 Brit awards at the O2, London. David Bowie did make a world of difference, and Paul Morley explains why. The Age of Bowie is published by Simon & Schuster (£20). Photograph: Dominic Lipinski/PA. Unsurprisingly the 70s consume most of Morley’s attention; not even Bowie himself could have taken offence at the short shrift given to Tonight or Tin Machine (though I’d have liked more on 2002’s underrated Heathen, which reunited him after 22 years with producer Tony Visconti).

Pyramids of Glass: Short Fiction from Modern Mexico
I bought this book long ago, 2005-2008 maybe, for a Chicano class, and I enjoyed it even I read it with the pressure of doing a paper in short time while I was also working. At that time, I knew that I was going to read it again because it is one of those books so interesting that it is not possible to grasp all its richness in a single reading because each of the 27 has a life of its own. Most of the authors that make up this gem of literature are famous writers, however, I didn't know some of them, but all of them are wonderful. Guadalupe Duenas was an unknown for me, but her short story, Mariquita and Me, cautivated me for ever. A little unborn girl, who was kept into a chile's jar, fills the world of a family with joy, pain and fears, and they fight twenty years of solitude, scorn, and gossiping before deciding to bury her. Another unknown writer was the author of the Origin of Miracles, Agustin Monsreal. It was exhilarating to find how a man's dream of leaving his boring and tedious village, where there was nothing interesting to do, comes true. When for him, "Not even a billiard room or a beer hall or a nice little house on the edge of the town where the woman sleep all day and spend the nights perfuming the land and the air with their laughter, no, not even." But sudenly a "God's miracle" saves him from his boredom. Like this story there are 25 more that make this book worth of reading it. If one have curiosity about understanding Mexican culture, it is a way of get a little closer because the writers were chosen from most of different Mexican regions, so throughout the stories, it is possible to know the different ways that converge in the whole nation. At the end you notice that it is not only Mexico who is portraited here but Latin America or the whole humankind. It is a shame that this same collection is not avalaible in Spanish because for us Spanish speakers would be a delight to know exactly the way the characteres of this 27 stories were talking their lifes in our own language.
I highly recomend this book for its profound but exhilarating content!
