Editors' Spotlight

IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Personal Quote:

I have been chastised for making this claim, but I do feel I invented the historical hard-boiled detective novel. Not the period private eye novel ([Stuart] Kaminsky and [Andrew] Bergman and Robert Towne and maybe a couple others pre-date me), but using a fictional noirish protagonist in a story that is otherwise solidly based on fact. That's my contribution. See more »

Trivia:

Filmmaker William Lustig (director of Maniac Cop (1988)) once owned an option on Collins' novel "Spree". The story centered on a former thief named Nolan who is blackmailed into carrying out a heist in a Midwestern mall where he now owns a restaurant. Collins has written seven novels featuring this character. See more »
