As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride

It is a rare feat for any movie to stand the test of time and be considered a “classic.”. It is even rarer for a movie that was modestly received upon release to have new life breathed into it and vaulted to the upper echelon of cherished films. The Princess Bride is one of the few movies (if not the only one) to achieve such a feat while also crossing multiple genres and incorporating everything from pirates and giants, to romance and fairy tales, all as a story within a story.

About

Jeff Ayers

I started reading at a very young age with my parents. My father read the comic strips in the paper with me, like Spider-Man, Calvin and Hobbes, and Peanuts. Later, my love of reading blossomed into books, graphic novels and comic books. I also am a classically trained violinist, playing with the Empire State Youth Orchestra program as a child, and played electric violin with the progressive metal band Lore(1997-2003) and the experimental rock and roll band Skeletons in the Piano(2008-2014). I studied creative writing and journalism at SUNY Oswego and I am currently working on an illustrated collection of short stories with the talented fine artist Matt Mrowka. I live in Saratoga Springs, NY, where I frequent rock shows, dive bars and the best comic store around, The Comic Depot. Currently I review new comics for Comic Book Herald, graphic novels for Graphic Novel Reporter, and review concerts, albums, and interview bands for Upstate Live Music Guide.
