How to Stunt in Hollywood, by Amy Johnston (Amazon Createspace, 2018)

A series of interviews with Hollywood stunt performers. A stunt performer themselves, Johnston offers both a thematic and a stunt person-by-stunt person pathway through these interviews. Useful in giving insights into stunt folks’ perspectives on career-building, on storytelling through action, on working collaboratively in Hollywood, and on wider motivational and healthy living advice. Niche, perhaps, but informative and accessible.

Hap and Leonard: Savage Season, by Jussi Piironen, adapted from the novel by Joe R Lansdale (IDW Publishing, 2017)

Hap and Leonard fall foul of Hap’s ex and a scheme to retrieve the proceeds from a heist. Brisk, clean graphic novel adaptation of the first in the long-running series of Joe Lansdale novels. Captures the spirit of the books and characters well.

Blue Moon, by Lee Child (Bantam Press, 2019)

Reacher, in helping an old man with a debt problem, sparks a gang war. A larger canvas than typical this time out, and perhaps more cinematic in scope. Plenty of positives for series fans and for admirers of Child’s prose style, though not an entry point for newbies. Recommended, nevertheless, if this is your kinda thing.
