None of the Above: A Screenplay (2012 Edgeworks Abbey Trade Paperback; 1st edition, 2nd printing) – BLOOD’S BARGAINS


BLOOD’S BARGAINs  are books that have sustained cosmetic damage but are still readable. From badly aligned spines and miscut covers to serious bumps, bruises, and scuffs, think of these as books Blood salvaged from the post-apocalyptic wastes in an effort to civilize Vic.

Harlan Ellison’s 238-page, unproduced screenplay adaptation of Norman Spinrad’s Hugo Award-nominated novel BUG JACK BARRON that was to have been directed by Costa-Gavras (Z) for Universal Pictures in the early 1980s.

Edgeworks Abbey; 2nd Edition, 1st Printing.

Film critic and historian Leonard Maltin has written an insightful introduction with input from Ellison on why—after nearly 30 years—the film has still never been made.

This paperback book includes Ellison’s original casting suggestions from 1983 so you can “see the movie in your mind” with the faces Ellison imagined for each role.

The script in this book was reproduced from Harlan Ellison’s file copy. The pages originated on a manual typewriter, hence the idiosyncrasies that set them apart from the sanitized, word-processed pages of today.

NONE OF THE ABOVE is a 255-page, 7.5″ by 9.25″ paperback. ISBN: 9780983622369
