    My book 'Anarchy and Alchemy: The Films of Alejandro
    Jodorowsky' (Creation Books) is out in April 2007. Special editions
    signed by Jodo (strictly limited to 50 copies) are available now at
    www.creationbooks.com Check out my MySpace page (www.myspace.com/
    bansheeben) for details on the book, rare El Topo artwork and lots
    more...

    Tartan Films UK are releasing their Fando y Lis/El Topo/The Holy
    Mountain boxset on May 14th and its shaping up to be a stunning
    package. The 6-disc set includes Jodo's long-lost short La Cravate,
    audio commentaries with the director and soundtracks for both El Topo
    and The Holy Mountain. Not to mention the jaw-dropping remastered
    films themselves (they have even managed to source an English audio
    track for El Topo)... Check below for the full specs. I will be
    contributing the liner notes for the films.
