Quoted in new book about Elizabeth Montgomery!

My friend and author Herbie J. Pilato just released his biography of Elizabeth Montgomery called Twitch Upon a Star: The Bewitched Life and Career of Elizabeth Montgomery (Taylor Trade Publishing). He was just the guy to do so as he was one of the only people Liz allowed to interview her, and at her house!

Herbie J and I have been friends for about a decade now and he asked for my opinion on Liz's different interpretations of Samantha when playing against both Dick York and Dick Sargent. He included my quote in his book!

Not only that, but at the end of the book there is a suggested reading section and aside from his own The Bewitched Book and Bewitched Forever, my book was the only other one devoted to the show that he listed! I thank him very much for that and congratulate him on publishing the only book about Liz worthy of her.

Also, take note of what Amazon.com shows as "Frequently Bought Together":

So awesome!

Fangoria magazine reviewed my book! (?!!)

On August 26, 2012 I decided to Google The Bewitched History Book and was shocked to find that Fangoria magazine-which is devoted to the horror genre of films and television- had review my book! That is a national magazine...true, I've never read it, but I've always seen it on the shelves.

They weren't too thrilled with the book...but what can you expect from people that want to be scared and see something horrific? The only thing horrific about Bewitched was Samantha's hair in Season Seven's "Money Happy Returns."

They gave the book two and a half skulls out of four. However they did say:

...if you’re a fan of BEWITCHED looking for a comprehensive episode guide, this book is indispensable.
You hear that? INDISPENSABLE!! Which I would think would deserve more skulls.

Anyway, you can read their entire review here:

Fangoria's review of The Bewitched History Book

Apparently, though, the review was only online as I looked through their print magazine in the two months that followed and didn't see it. THAT would've been awesome!
