What's the connection to death of the author?

Just people sharing their opinions about stories. Unless their thoughts are what the author intended then it's “death of the author”

Okay! I found the book at a convention, but it was published by McFarland if you want to get it.

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 4989 comments The Deep Focus series has famous authors looking in-depth at cult movies. I've read the one about Heathers and I'm really looking forward to the one about They Live.
Do you only want books that are about one film, novel, or whatever, or would a book about more than one be acceptable? Like A Hitchcock Reader?

The Harry Potter fandom is overwritten about. And why would CC need to know the publisher to find the book?
