It’s Christmas Eve as I write this, and I’m pleased to report that my first gift has already arrived: the cover image for my upcoming book Broadcast Hysteria: Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds and the Art of Fake News is now up on Macmillan’s website!

Also, check it out on Broadcast Hysteria‘s new Facebook page:


My most profound thanks to the graphic designers at Farrar, Straus & Giroux for putting together this exciting and arresting image, and to everyone at FSG for being such a joy to work with this past year. A lot of hard but very rewarding work went into this project in 2014, and I can’t wait to share the fruits of all that labor with the world in 2015.

I wish you all the best this holiday season, and nothing but good things in the New Year – a.k.a., the “Year of Orson Welles.”
