Project Update – MACKED, HAMMERED, SLAUGHTERED, & SHAFTED

macked book 1 LOW RESLate last year I announced a new project, Macked, Hammered, Slaughtered, & Shafted, a book covering this history of blaxploitation (that takes its name from my documentary of the same title). Several people have been asking about the book, wanting to know things like if it was a reprint of old material from BadAzz MoFo, and when it would be out. Well, I’ve been slowly and steadily working on the book for several months (in between other various projects), and my self-imposed publishing deadline is February 2015. Yes, I know, releasing a book dealing with black history during Black History Month is a bit of a cliche, but I prefer to think of it as being traditionalist. So, hopefully that answers the questions of when. There will be a crowdfunding campaign (most likely Indiegogo) that will launch in the next few months. As for whether or not the book will reprint old material from BadAzz MoFo…the answer is, “No, it will not.” The vast majority of the stuff written for BadAzz MoFo is more than a decade old, and I’m capable of better writing. More important, the subject matter deserves better writing and more attention than I gave it in the past. There may be some basic stuff I pull from older reviews, but the bulk of Macked, Hammered, Slaughtered, & Shafted will be new material (or at least heavily edited from its original version). The book will include an incredibly in-depth historical examination of blaxploitation, extended reviews of key films, and some cool material that I’m still putting together, but want to keep as a secret for now. If you want my old reviews, check out the Blaxploitation Archive, which over the next few months will post nearly all of my old reviews. Or if you prefer, buy some back issues of BAMF.
