Happy 90th birthday, Ed Wood!

Edward D. Wood, Jr. would have been 90 years old as of October 10, 2014.

The image above is an advertisement from O/R Books, publishers of Blood Splatters Quickly: The Collected Stories of Edward D. Wood, Jr., a new book which helpfully compiles several of the short stories Eddie wrote in the 1960s and 1970s.  Blood may splatter quickly, but your humble blogger reads slowly. A review of Blood Splatters Quickly is forthcoming. I only ask for your patience. In addition, there are still some freshly reissued Wood films on DVD which I have not yet reviewed on this blog, including The Young Marrieds and Shot on Location. Those, too, are coming soon to Dead 2 Rights, as is some 20th anniversary coverage of Tim Burton's Ed Wood. Before any of these things appear, however, I will probably do an article which spotlights Tor Johnson and Vampira and will take the form of a dual book review. Also in the offing: a roundup of various Wood documentaries from the '90s.

Til then, my friends....


  1. Thank you for the birthday greetings for Ed. I'm sure he is smiling down on us from somewhere...
    And thank you for your continued research into the life of this complex man.

  2. It's been my pleasure to do it. I foresee great things in the future of Ed Wood Wednesdays. Stay tuned!
