In the author's preface, John Boorman explains that Zardoz was originally a novel that became a screenplay and then spun off a novelization. This book is that novelization. I was hoping that it would be the I actually enjoyed the movie; it's a crazy weird movie with some good visuals and a dodgy philosophical message that make it a staple of a bad movie night.

ZARDOZ by JOHN BOORMAN with Bill Stair Based on the original screenplay by JOHN BOORMAN First Printing, April, 1974. Preface I wrote Zardoz in 1972 at my home, a. Based on the original screenplay by. JOHN BOORMAN. First Printing, April, 1974. I wrote Zardoz in 1972 at my home, a lost valley in the dreaming hills of Wicklow. It came out closer to a novel than a screenplay. Gradually I worked it into a film form that proved too radical for most of the studios.

Zardoz is a 1974 Irish-American science fantasy film, and later a book, written, produced, and directed by John Boorman and starring Sean Connery and Charlotte Rampling, and featuring Sara Kestelman. It depicts a post apocalyptic world where barbarians worship a stone god called "Zardoz" that grants them death and eternal life.

Death is banished forever. I direct that the Tabernacle erase from us all memories of its construction, so we may never destroy it if we should ever crave for death. edge will never die but go forward to perfection. The old man finished speaking. There was no applause from the assembled audience. They quietly dispersed and went about their allotted duties. MoreLess Show More Show Less.

Zardoz is a guilty pleasure of mine and I recently had the opportunity to read this novelisation co-written by John .

Boorman provides an introduction where he admits that this book takes material from the early drafts of the script and combines them.

by Bill Stair and John Boorman. Select Format: Paperback.

In the distant future Earth is divided into two camps, the barely civilized group and the overly civilized one with mental powers. Without question, the most brilliant bad movie EVER made: Red man-panties, gun-vomiting hot air balloon stone heads, flying books on fishing line, neat-o dance numbers (or at least ballroom catharsis), magic marker facial hair, elitist-hippie government, inexplicable backward-masking (check out Friend in the kitchen), the ugliest bride in the history of cinema, cool jewelry

1. Boorman added the opening scene with the floating head introducing the film in an attempt to explain the picture to audiences which didn’t seem to understand what the film was about.

1. He hoped it would make things clearer for viewers. 3. It was shot within ten miles of Boorman’s own home in Wicklow Hills, Ireland. I’ve used it many times in my movies. 4. The giant stone head was pulled along on a cable, and it was shot.

This book is great. I love the idea. It's a quick read. The movie follows it pretty closely as well. Zardoz!

Zardoz is a guilty pleasure of mine and I recently had the opportunity to read this novelisation co-written by John Boorman and Bill Stair (credited as a consultant on the film, and incidentally creator of the UK TV show, Boon starring Michael Elphick).
Boorman provides an introduction where he admits that this book takes material from the early drafts of the script and combines them. This is probably some of the material concerning Zed's early life growing up as an exterminator as well as the original purpose of the Vortex (it was created as a space ship for the cream of humanity to travel to other planets).
Fans of the films will find something worth digesting here whilst those that loathed the film will also loathe this novelisation. Otherwise it makes an interesting addition to an under-rated movie though would advise anyone to purchase the DVD.
Steep
An interesting read with very clear prose. The book is short
and concerns BIG IDEAS, so its brevity is surprising in that
it doesn't give anything seen in the film short shrift.

On the plus side, the book is almost completely intelligible,
but on the minus side it thereby de-mystifies the plot and
story. Really; the book makes sense 95% of the time, and
the next time you see the film, it will make 100% sense.

I really enjoyed this book, both the concept and the use of language. It is in the science fiction/fantasy tradition, creating a realistic dystopian vision of a future world. The film itself is let down by the special effects and would be so much better with the CGI effects available now. If you let your imagination fill in the defects of the special effects then the story is still an excellent one.

The Mirror of Eternity

Salt Wars
Mikarr
A fast easy read. Follows the movie plot well.
Dorintrius
Pamphlet like LOWEST GRADE PAPERBACK. Better than nothing.
Vut
Barbarian bloke busts up the burgundy and beaujolais set.

Or, a bit of the wizard of oz redone in seventies trippy and gauzy decadent sf style. Those of the lower class are kept ignorant by means of technological tricks, etc, in that old fashioned oz style. Here, the witches are most definitely a lot better looking, and a lot hornier.
