Information on As I Am by Françoise Pascal

Our good friend here at Fascination, Françoise Pascal, is getting ready to release her much anticipated autobiography, entitled As I Am, later this year and I wanted to direct everyone to her website where you can sign up to receive information on it. Outside of being the star to one of Jean Rollin's greatest films, The Iron Rose, Françoise has had both a fascinating life on screen and off and her book is sure to be an incredible read. Register here to show your interest in the book and, if you happened to have missed it, please check out the Q&A I did with Françoise here. I can't wait to read the book and I wish Françoise all the best of luck with it!

Support Finders Keepers and a Quick Personal Note

I am sure most of you have heard the incredibly sad news that much of the stock at our friends Finders Keepers Records was destroyed recently during the fires and riots that plagued London. I wanted to ask everyone to head over to Finders Keepers and show them some love by ordering one of their tremendous Jean Rollin releases or one of the new Make Do and Mend compilations gathered together to support the label by great artists such as Jarvis Cocker and David Holmes among others. Finders Keepers is one of the best and most important labels on the planet and any support you can give is appreciated.

Also, I wanted to apologize for the lack of updates here recently. 2011 has turned out to be quite a stressful year for me and I have, frankly, been off my game for the majority of it. Please know I haven't given up on my Rollin site (or any of my other blogs) and I will be back in full-swing sooner than later. I have high hopes for 2012 personally and professionally and I wanted to thank everyone who has continued to visit here and thank you for your patience with me.

Fascination will start rocking again soon!
