BROUGHT TO BOOK
Whilst The Unmutual Website is mostly dedicated to all things "Prisoner", Portmeirion, and Patrick McGoohan, the website also promotes the Cult TV-related work of folk who, over the years, have contributed much to "Prisoner" fandom.
One such writer is Michael Richardson, who for many years edited the popular Cult TV magazine "Action TV", and TUW is delighted to announce that Michael has written a new book of interest to fans of the genre.
"Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots - The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to The Avengers" (left) is a magnificent volume, utilising original studio documents and eye-witness accounts of the day-to-day creation of one of TV's greatest hits. With a foreword by writer Brian Clemens (who of course wrote several episodes of "Danger Man"), the book is the "fullest picture yet" regarding the making of the series.
Also published recently, by musician, writer, and "Prisoner" fan Simon Wells (Simon wrote the Network DVD "Prisoner" documentary "Don't Knock Yourself Out") is the highly recommended "Quadrophenia - Inside the Making of Britain's Greatest Youth Film". Click HERE to order from Amazon.
The new book "George Markstein and The Prisoner" is also still available, with the book receiving rave reviews by several "Prisoner" experts (see news item below).
With thanks to Michael Richardson for this news item and cover image.
