DANGEROUS BEAUTY…

My latest article over at Black Gate is an appreciation of Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s amazing “wuxia” trilogy–a trio of kung fu films that revolutionize the genre and re-invent the martial arts movie in the same way that Ang Lee’s CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON did at the turn of the millennium.

Yimou is one of my all-time favorite directors, and his movies are masterworks of visually kinetic storytelling.

The great Darrell Sweet illustrated a scene from Tolkien's SILMARILLION in a painting called "Glaurung."

SFFWRTCHT: What’s the best writing advice you have to offer new writers who ask?

John R. Fultz: Just keep writing. If you’re really a writer, there’s nothing else you can do. Write what you believe in…conquer your own mountains…write the best stories you can and get them out there where people can dig your mojo. Build a suit of armor from your accumulated rejection slips and wear it into battle. Kill that dragon.
