Praise for ‘Quatermass In Television and Movies’ from Diabolique Magazine:
Mark F. Cain’s Quatermass in Television and Movies (2016) is a referential guide to the full scope of the Quatermass universe, from the initial televised run to the reincarnation of the series in the 1970s and mid-2000s, the full filmic franchise, and references in other strands of popular culture – from the 1970s band named after the treasured science-fiction hero to the 1959 Quatermass-themed episode of popular British comedy radio show, The Goon Show (1951-1960).
As a compendium to the Quatermass universe, Quatermass in Television and Movies is a wonderful book for any fan of the franchise to dip into, new or old. At forty-seven pages it’s a quick and engaging read; Cain’s writing is peppered by fascinating facts that, in addition to the dedication of chapters to specific films or television series, allow readers to pick up the book at any stage of the Quatermass story.
