Since 1990, Michael Marano has been reviewing movies and doing pop culture commentary for the Public Radio Satellite System program “Movie Magazine International,” syndicated in more than 111 markets in the U.S. and Canada. In this capacity, he has seen and ranted on and pontificated about perhaps more than 1,000 genre movies, and is now unfit for most any other form of employment. His articles have appeared in venues like the Boston Phoenix, the Weekly Dig, the Independent Weekly, Paste Magazine and Science Fiction Universe. Marano is also a horror writer, with stories in The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 11 and Outsiders: 22 All-New Stories from the Edge; his first novel, Dawn Song, won the Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild Awards. He recently visited the set of the “Batman Begins” sequel “The Dark Knight” for the SciFi Channel and saw a lot of cool stuff that he can’t talk about. He is a bitter old punk rocker, and can be reached at www.myspace.com/michaelmarano.
