Johann Thorsson is a native of Iceland, but spends much of his time in Bookland. He has lived in a few parts of the world but currently lives in Iceland with a pretty woman and a mischievous son who resembles Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes fame) more each day. He has a complicated but ultimately useless degree in bioinformatics from a very pretty college in England. His favorite books are 1984, Flowers for Algernon and The English Patient. He hopes one day to call himself a writer without feeling like he's just fooling himself. Blog: Johann Thorsson - On Book and Writing Twitter: @johannthors

The adaptation of Joe Lansdale’s thriller Cold in July hits theaters in May, and here is the first trailer.

Cold in July tells the story of Richard Dane, who shoots and kills an intruder in his house. The police tell him that the intruder was a known felon and that he did the right thing.

But of course, things are not as they seem…


The book gets a lot of praise on Amazon, and anything with Dexter’s Michael C. Hall in it is bound to be good.
