Touchback Wins a Saturn Award
Wednesday, June 26th, 2013 - Touchback won Best DVD/Bluray release at the 39th Annual Saturn Awards. Would like to thank Anchor Bay/Starz for doing such a great job with the release and the many many many people who helped make the film.
I am a lifelong Science Fiction and Fantasy fan and reader thanks to my mother and brother. Many memorable nights in the 70s watching Star Trek on the couch or Kung Fu movies on Saturday morning instead of going to soccer practice. My brother is a science fiction guru and I read through his well worn collection. I was always more into the fantasy and he was always more into the science fiction, but I could live on a desert island with either and be happy. Orson Scott Card, Robert Vardman, Piers Anthony, the Fire and Fog series, Feist, Bova, Tolkien, Harrison and the Stainless Steel Rat, too many others to name. I have been reading and collecting science fiction and fantasy books and comics since the days when it would get you beat up by the bike racks.
It was an unexpected pleasure, and quite an honor to get this award. I am glad I put a time-travelling pickup truck in my book/film which I guess squeaked Touchback in.
Thank you to the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror!
