Dark Shadows Memories is a colorful, picture-packed tribute to the legendary 1966 - 1971 Gothic ABC-TV daytime series Dark Shadows, that starred Jonathan Frid as tormented vampire Barnabas Collins. Launched June 27, 1966 by series creator Dan Curtis as a Gothic romance evoking the gloomy, storm-tossed milieu of the Brontë sisters, and later evolving into a supernatural blend of vampires, witches, leviathans, time travel and parallel universes, Dark Shadows was radically unlike any daytime soap. The series became a pop culture phenomenon in its time as the show that "every kid ran home from school to watch." The book, written by Dark Shadows actress Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie Evans and Josette duPrés), and edited by series archivist Jim Pierson, overflows with fascinating facts, anecdotes and trivia about Dark Shadows, along with dozens of never-before-published photographs. Alexandra Moltke Isles, who played Collinwood governess Victoria Winters, has written the Foreword. Dark Shadows scholar Kathleen Resch provides a comprehensive summary of the storylines throughout the five-year run of the series.
Frankie Crooks, a down to earth Italian from Greenwich Village is torn between two worlds…the mob and law enforcement. Both hold intrigue, because he has one brother who is a highly decorated police officer and the other one who’s in the mob…and both want him to follow in their footsteps. Frankie sees the humor in all this at the most inappropriate moments as he vacillates between a life of crime and being a law abiding citizen. With a first person tongue-in-cheek approach, Frankie’s life unfolds as we follow him through his escapades that leave him running for his life, both from the law and the hands of his strict Italian mother. A mix between Catcher in the Rye and Analyze This, this book leaves readers wanting the "bad" guy to win, while at the same time revealing what makes a criminal tick. Based on a true story, Frankie Crooks, lets you know what it’s like to be Almost a Wise Guy. (Based on the life of Fran’s Dad…Yup, a true comic crime novel….98% genuine Capo. I dare you to guess the one episode that is slightly exaggerated…and it’s not Fat Sue.) Note from Author: Hey Guys…my dad asked me to write this book on his deathbed. I had four months while he was battling cancer to write it, edit it and read it to him. He heard the whole story before he died. I was nervous about writing it, since several mobsters were included…so the beginning of the book says, "The names have been changed to protect the author." Hey I gotta cover my bases. Anyway, If you like to laugh, I think you will enjoy this book, and understand where I get my humor from. Don’t forget to read the foreword.
The Bunny Years is based on the author's interviews with more than 250 former Playboy Bunnies and her personal recollections working as a Bunny in the New York Club while attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Kathryn Leigh Scott "retired her satin ears" in 1966 to become one of the original cast members of the ABC Gothic drama Dark Shadows. The book sweeps readers along into the backstage adventures and intimate confessions of women who were pioneers in the sexual revolution. Even more intriguing, perhaps, than former Bunnies who found careers in show business are the other remarkable women profiled in the book, including the owner of a multi-million dollar New York advertising agency, a distinguished scientist, an architect, an opera singer, an attorney, a book publisher, a restaurateur, a stock broker, an executive producer of network sitcoms, a race horse breeder, a real estate tycoon, an award-winning hat designer, a nurse, several schoolteachers -- and a midwife who was both a beauty queen and a nun before becoming a Bunny. The author's thesis is that, in its own peculiar way, the Playboy Club in the mid-60's served as a magnet and crucible for women independently driven to achieve remarkable levels of success later in life. As the profiles demonstrate, the very impulses that led intelligent, ambitious women to defy convention and choose to work as Bunnies would later propel many of them into vastly rewarding, and often unconventional, personal careers.
