This is a call for papers, for a new anthology tentatively titled Wrath of God: The films of Klaus Kinski.

The collection looks to bring together a series of essays (interviews with filmmakers, will be welcome) on one of cinema's truly volatile sons. Particular emphasis on Kinski's more exploitive roles and obscure gems. Essays on Kinski/Herzog will be welcome, though only one essay per film will be included in the collection.

I’m looking for critical and scholarly essays that discuss individual Kinski films or the man himself.

I have currently received essays on the following films:

Fitzcarraldo
Nosferatu
Paganini
Timestalker
Creature
Herzog Collaborations
The Great Silence
Le amanti del mostro and La mano che nutre la morte.

If interested, I recommend that you first send a 300-400 word proposal (or a simple email, in order to check the paper’s suitability). Submissions and proposals should be sent to Matthew6.Edwards@live.uwe.ac.uk

All texts should be in Times New Roman, font size 12 and justified. Please use endnotes, though please refrain from using the endnotes facility on your computer. For notes, please use superscript and number all notes numerically.

Closing date for the completed essays will be August 2014. McFarland and Co., have expressed an early interest in the anthology.

Matthew Edwards is the editor of the anthology Film out of Bounds, which was published in the US by Mcfarland and Co in 2007 and is the editor of the forthcoming book Enola's Light: Japanese Cinema and the Atomic Bomb (McFarland 2015).
