Happy THE THING Day! The John Carpenter version, age 37, was released on June 25th, 1982. I can't believe it's closing in on 40 years old!

The Howard Hawks version will be 70 years old on April 6th, 2021. We'll need to celebrate its half-sesquicentenial-minus-five on that day. Canned food only, no sharing of drinks, everyone eat alone in their room. Keep Watching the Skies!!!

[Today] I received my copy of Frozen Hell by John Campbell which was the original, much longer version of "Who Goes There?" written in the 1930's. Someone found the story in Campbell's archives last year. A kickstarter campaign was launched to publish the book in hardcover. There is also a collection of "Thing" themed short stories by other authors coming out soon. The books are published by Wildside Press.

Yep, me too. I'm looking forward to reading FROZEN HELL. Do you have an update on the publish date of the "THING" themed stories?
