Why write? The answer is two-fold: For the love of it; or because you have something to say or show. We are a sharing species; a storytelling species. If there is a story (or hopefully, stories) inside you, by all means write. More important learn to write well. In each of these books, I deconstruct a single story to exemplify the principles behind good storytelling, as well as weaknesses in parts that could have been better written.

Whoever wrote "Make 'em laugh!" knew that it's easier said than done. But people love to laugh, and good comedy will always sell. With the help of this complete and entertaining guide, writers and would-be writers for film and television can look forward to writing comedy that goes far beyond stereotypic jokes and characters. In Laughing Out Loud, award-winning screenwriter and author Andrew Horton blends history, theory, and analysis of comedy with invaluable advice. Using examples from Chaplin to Seinfeld, Aristophanes to Woody Allen, Horton describes comedy as a perspective rather than merely as a genre and then goes on to identify the essential elements of comedy. His lively overview of comedy's history traces its two main branches—anarchistic comedy and romantic comedy—from ancient Greece through contemporary Hollywood, by way of commedia dell'arte, vaudeville, and silent movies. Television and international cinema are included in Horton's analysis, which leads into an up-close review of the comedy chemistry in a number of specific films and television shows. The rest of the book is a practical guide to writing feature comedy and episodic TV comedy, complete with schedules and exercises designed to unblock any writer's comic potential. The appendices offer tips on networking, marketing, and even producing comedies, and are followed by a list of recommended comedies and a bibliography.

C alifornia is a land of contradictions. Nothing could be more different than the wet foggy forests of northern Califor- nia, the alpine summits of the High Sierra with its crystalline air and achingly blue skies or the intense dry heat of Death Valley. Compare these places with the never-ending boulevards of Los Angeles and San Francisco's Castro Street. Who but a pair of artist-hippies would have the adaptability to grok it all? The sum of the geography and people gives an understanding of the whole state of nature and culture that is California. California Trip shows the history of peace and love, the tradition of protest, the freedom of the open road and the highs of California's wilderness – all that is far from shopping malls and corporate cubicles. This an uncensored look at real California, not a tourist whitewash. It is a social critique yet also captures the freewheeling spirit and beauty of California. A thinking person's guide to California, outrageous and insightful, this book feels the pulse of the state. For visitors, it's a trip they want to take; for residents it describes the art of living in their state, finding both thrills and spiritual meaning in its wilderness and people. Take the California Trip–but watch out if you go to some of the stranger destinations in the book–the hippie pot farms or San Quentin's prison yard! By vicariously experiencing California through these stories and pictures, readers will be inspired to experience the incredible highs of California themselves, not in posh hotels but in a car and sleeping bag, hiking and medi- tating in the alpine peaks or shimmering deserts. Color & Light Editions is proud to publish this groundbreaking book by Richard Blair and Kathleen Goodwin. It is a book that will expand the art of the photographic essay.
