Steven Davies – Author

Now regarded as a prolific author and journalist in the field of film criticism, Steven Paul Davies is in great demand as a contributor for some of the most high profile publications in the UK and US – The Guardian, The Mail, and Empire, to name a few.

After completing his first film biography Alex Cox: Film Anarchist, Steven Davies teamed up with Andrew Pulver, Film Editor of The Guardian to write Brat Pack: Confidential, published a year later in December 2000. Research for this project saw Steven in New York and Los Angeles talking to casting directors, agents and directors, as well as many of the actors themselves.

Following the success of his first two books for Batsford, Steven then completed his next project, The A-Z Cult Films and Film-makers which has so far proved a real winner. The title has been reprinted twice and was used as the basis for a recent US documentary.

His book on Patrick McGoohan’s strange series The Prisoner was released by Pan MacMillan in 2002 and the title has recently been revised and updated, enjoying reprints in 2007, 2009, 2012 and 2015.

2003 saw Steven working with the director Mike Hodges (Get Carter / Flash Gordon / Croupier) on his official biography which was released in early 2004 and given the ‘Highly Recommended’ tag by Hotdog magazine.

Steven’s most recent project is Out the Movies: A History of Gay Cinema. This new book looks at the development of gay-themed and gay-interest films throughout the decades, from early images in the 50s and 60s to more recent hits such as Milk and Brokeback Mountain.
