Shambling Towards Hiroshima - James K. Morrow This tale is a rather unique look at both the giant monster genre (kaiju eiga) and b-movie history. The author obviously loves both, and he does get some great characterizations and pseudo-movie history into this book. I so wanted to like it more, but the general concept behind the main character, Thorley Sims, involvement in the story just doesn't ring true, and it gets very (though justifiably) preachy in the last few chapters. I would actually love it if the author would come out with some novelizations of some of the fake b-movies he creates in this story.
