Publisher's Summary

A retired actor and her director discuss the film that altered the course of their careers, in this provocative new story by Ed Park, author of Personal Days.

Barbara Lee Handbook (pronounced “Hanbok”), whom fans will know as Barbie Moran, the ‘80s bombshell and star of the cult sci-fi film Weird Menace, sits down with Director Toner Low to discuss the making of the classic film - set on a distant planet, featuring mutant attackers, cyber ladies of the 34th century, and no shortage of warring spaceships - for the Blu-ray edition, in this absurdly funny and poignant meditation on art, legacy, and our ambivalence about the life choices that define us.

About the Performer

Eric Yves Garcia spins stories into a mic, whether alone in a booth or onstage with a piano. An actor and musician, Eric has voiced several mysteries, thrillers, YA, and romance, as well as non-fiction titles in history, self-help, memoir, and, uniquely, recipes. Eric's roles in multi-cast audio plays range from kids to classics, including Little Women starring Laura Dern, highlighted by Entertainment Weekly. As an award-winning singer/pianist, he has performed most nights of every week across NYC for more than a decade while also touring the US, UK, and Europe. His solo reviews have been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time Out New York, and Chicago Tribune. Of the two gigs, the narrator wardrobe is decidedly more breathable.

About the Performer

Award-winning narrator Hillary Huber has recorded hundreds of titles spanning many genres. Hillary has a BA in English Literature and is a voracious reader and listener of audiobooks. Being raised in conservative Connecticut and hippy Hawaii has given her a unique perspective, straddling two very different worlds. She now splits her time between California and New York. Most of that time is spent in a small 4x4 padded cell. Um...booth.
