Holiday Gift Guide 2016: The Gift of Reading

boo1

One of the things we love here at Biff Bam Pop! is books, probably because we’re all writers as well as readers. Therefore I’d like to suggest some books here that folks who regularly read our website might also enjoy reading, perhaps because some are by us, and some by friends, and some we just really dig. Meet me after the jump for the Gift of Reading.

BBP contributor Lucas Mangum has a new book available on Kindle that came out this past Halloween about a filmmaker haunted by a cursed screenplay, and it’s some of the best horror I’ve read this year. Check out Mania for both yourself and the horror fan on your list. Our own Marie Gilbert this year also released the third part of her Roof Oasis series with Beware the Harvesters.

With Rogue One the sensation of the season, we are all Star Wars fans at the moment, and Sequart Organization has two fantastic books out for the fans on your list. Released last year is A Long Time Ago: Exploring the Star Wars Cinematic Universe, and just recently A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Exploring Star Wars Comics. A third and final volume, for those thinking ahead, will be available shortly: A More Civilized Age: Exploring the Star Wars Expanded Universe. These extensive and entertaining books are musts for the Star Wars fans on your list.

Speaking of Sequart, their founder Julian Darius has a fantastic science fiction comic series, Martian Comics (we looked a few early issues here) that I can’t recommend enough. Check it out for yourself, and gift it for your friends.

With Twin Peaks returning to television this year, it might be a good time to check out—for both you and for the cult television fans on your lists—our founder’s book on the subject. As far as I’m concerned, Andy Burns is the expert when it comes to Twin Peaks, and Wrapped in Plastic proves it. A must-have item for the bookshelf of every true Twin Peaks fan. Andy also had no small hand in Jeff Woods‘ book, Radio, Records & Rockstars. Both books are highly recommended.

And if you’re looking for speculative fiction short stories, I would be remiss to not mention Strange World: A Biff Bam Pop Short Story Anthology, featuring many writers and contributors to this very website. The book includes work by folks like the aforementioned Andy Burns and Lucas Mangum, David S. Ward, Jason Shayer, and Ian Rogers, among others, and also a short story by some guy named Glenn Walker.

Happy Holidays, happy last-minute shopping, and keep reading!
