Description

This is one essay from the anthology King Kong is Back!

King Kong—love story, horror film, exotic adventure tale—is back on the big screen after an almost thirty-year absence, just in time for the King of Skull Island to influence another generation. From the 1933 black-and-white Cooper/Schoedsack classic to the badly received 1976 De Laurentiis remake, to the new vision brought to life by Peter Jackson, the essayists in King Kong is Back! explore the great ape’s unprecedented appeal and the film’s impact on our cultural imagination.

About the Author

David Brin’s bestselling SF novels have won Hugo, Nebula and other awards and have been translated into 20 languages. His 1989 thriller Earth foreshadowed global warming, cyberwarfare and the Web. A 1998 movie was loosely adapted from his Campbell Award winner The Postman, while Foundation’s Triumph brought a grand finale to Isaac Asimov’s famed Foundation universe. Kiln People portrays people using “home copiers” to be in two places at once. David’s nonfiction book The Transparent Society deals with openness, security and liberty in the future; it won the Freedom of Speech Award of the American Library Association.
