Ed Wood Wednesdays: Your Complete Guide to the Series

Why not be like Shirley and catch up on your reading this weekend?

Since July 2013, I have been devoting as many Humpdays as possible to the career of writer-director Edward D. Wood, Jr. in a series I've dubbed "Ed Wood Wednesdays." Originally planning only to watch his movies in roughly chronological order, I have since greatly expanded the range and scope of the project and have commented on many facets of Ed's life and work. The project's been running for a while now, so it's possible you may have missed an article along the way. Well, here they all are in a convenient list form. Read them at your leisure... and don't necessarily shy away from the unfamiliar titles. Those are sometimes the most fascinating of all.


In 2014, I wrote a series of articles reviewing each individual story in Blood Splatters Quickly: The Collected Stories of Edward D. Wood, Jr.

And in 2019, I covered all the stories in Angora Fever: The Collected Stories of Edward D. Wood, Jr. as well.

Plus I wrote a few Ed Wood extras:

Greg Dziawer has been contributing articles to this series on a regular basis since October 2015. He originally focused on Ed Wood's prolific writing career in the 1960s and 1970s, often debunking books and articles commonly attributed to Eddie. In the years since then, however, Greg has branched out, covering Eddie's work in pornographic loops in great detail and filling in biographical details about Ed's early years in Poughkeepsie, New York. But I never know what Greg is going to write about next. It could be any aspect of Ed's life or career. These articles, subdivided into various "orbits" and "odysseys," are ideal for all serious students of Edward D. Wood, Jr.
