Sneak Peek: The Film Freak Central 2006 Annual

In lieu of a Thursday update at the mother site, check out this sneak peek at the preliminary cover design for our 2006 Annual. (Click here for a larger, less-compressed image.) We're still in the very early stages of assembling it, but if all goes well it's going to be bigger and better and contain even more exclusive content than the 2005 Annual. As always, we welcome your suggestions on what you'd like to see included.

In the meantime, a few more online retailers (find them all hotlinked below) recently picked up the 2005 Annual, and if you were thinking of getting it but haven't yet, be advised that we'll probably pull it from circulation once the 2006 Annual goes on sale. A working preview of the book is now up at our Lulu storefront in .PDF format; it features my introduction as well as the "A" chapter of reviews.

What inspireds the covers arts, mays I asks?

Well, it was the year of Kong--or was supposed to be. Also wanted to try a break from form; I get tired of seeing our damn logo (although the half-moon's still there in homage), and feared these things would start to look like budget reports besides. I hope it's playful but elegant and that Woody Allen doesn't sue.

Oh my heck! They are showing The New World with Smell-a-vision in Japan!

Ahhhh...that's the smell of a leather-clad Colin Farrell after a lengthly sea-voyage. MMMM....Malicky.

Hey, Bill, why the need to pull out of circulation the '05 annual? I mean, suppose there are those who become aware of FFC because of the '06 annual; after being exposed to some true film-reviewing bliss, you'd think they'd definitely want to check out and buy the '05 annual, too. Just wondering.

Well, we probably won't pull '05 until the '06 Annual has been out for a few weeks, but they really are meant to be replaced by the next one, like yearbooks.
