"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

About the Author

First catching a screening of Tremors on BBC One in the early 1990s, Jonathan Melville has closely followed the goings on in Perfection, Nevada, ever since.

Long before the internet allowed fans to read about the production of their favourite movies from concept to completion, Melville relied on frequent visits to the video store to discover the latest releases, stumbling across Tremors 2: Aftershocks in a Blockbuster just outside Toronto in 1996, before stumbling across the sequels as they were released.

As a freelance film journalist for UK science fiction magazine SFX, Melville was able to pitch a 21st anniversary feature on Tremors for a 2011 article, subsequently deciding to devote an entire book to the subject.

The result is the first in-depth look at the Tremors franchise, including Tremors, Tremors 2: Aftershocks, Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, Tremors 4: The Legend Begins, Tremors: The Series and Tremors 5: Bloodlines.

This movie reference guide has not only been written for horror fans but for anyone with an interest in cinema and Hollywood filmmaking and the direct-to-video industry.

It looks at the background of Tremors creators S.S. Wilson, Brent Maddock and Ron Underwood, their time working with the likes of Steven Spielberg and their first major success creating Short Circuit, before revealing the difficulties involved in bringing a movie about giant worms to the big screen in a risk-averse industry.

Melville's interviews with the likes of Wilson, Maddock and Underwood, plus major Hollywood players including Gale Anne Hurd and Jim Jacks offer a rare insight into what makes the movie industry tick.

Brand new interviews with actors Kevin Bacon, Michael Gross, Reba McEntire, Tony Genaro, Ariana Richards, Robert Jayne and more offer further depth to the history of Tremors.

Jonathan Melville lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, but is planning to move to Perfection when his visa is approved.
