About the Author

Author of The Film Buff's Bucket List, Chris Stuckmann has over 70 million views and over 400,000 subscribers. Early on, Stuckmann was inspired by the great movie reviewer Roger Ebert, and has now gone on to be recognized as one of the top 3 movie reviewers on YouTube.
Ernest Cline has worked as a short-order cook, fish gutter, plasma donor, elitist video store clerk, and tech support drone. His primary occupation, however, has always been geeking out, and he eventually threw aside those other promising career paths to express his love of pop culture fulltime as a spoken word artist and screenwriter. His 2009 film Fanboys, much to his surprise, became a cult phenomenon. These days Ernie lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, their daughter, and a large collection of classic video games.READY PLAYER ONE is his first novel.
Alicia Malone is a film reporter, host, writer and self-confessed movie geek. She first gained notice hosting movie-centric shows and reviewing films in her native Australia, before making the leap to Los Angeles in 2011. Since then, Alicia has appeared on CNN, the Today show, MSNBC, NPR and many more as a film expert. Currently, she is a host on FilmStruck, a cinephile subscription streaming service run by the Criterion Collection and Turner Classic Movies, and she is the creator and host of the weekly show, Indie Movie Guide on Fandango. Alicia is passionate about classic films, independent movies and supporting women in film. In 2015, Alicia gave a TEDx talk about the lack of women working in film and why this is important to change. In 2017, she was invited to give a second TEDx talk, where she spoke about the hidden stories of the earliest women working in Hollywood. Alicia has also spoken at conferences around America, and because of this, was named of one the 100 Worthy Women of 2016. Alicia has traveled the world to cover the BAFTAs, the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival and SXSW. She is a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, and over the years has interviewed hundreds of movie stars and filmmakers. She also wrote this bio, but knew it would sound way less egotistical if written in third person.


"Stuckmann is no stranger to taking on ambitious projects, having already published an incredibly thoughtful book, The Film Buff's Bucket List: The 50 Movies of the 2000s to See Before You Die. I'm a huge fan of Stuckmann's work as a critic, filmmaker and writer, so I'm pretty damn stoked for this." - Curt Oglesbee, Horror Geek Life
"Stuckmann and his co-authors perfectly capture how what's important for the individual viewer on the most immediate level contributes to a film's importance on the whole... The book is a touching, personal love letter to the often critically neglected medium of Japanese animation." - ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio
"This book showcases the power of anime in a spectacular fashion by bringing a wide array of fans to talk about how the medium affected them. It takes you through a gamut of series and movies- from world-renowned titles to some hidden gems that you may not have heard of- to display how anime has changed the world and continues to do so. These genuine reviews from popular personalities and hometown heroes even have us wanting to peruse many of these titles! Finally, it brings home that there's much to be done in bringing anime to the West. There are too many beautiful stories and so many experiences to be had through the medium of anime." - Godswill Ugwa Jr. Social Media Coordinator - FUNimation
"Anime Impact is a terrific resource for anyone looking to learn more about the westerner's point of view on both the classics of the form and the lesser known gems you might not have heard of. Chris Stuckmann has assembled a formidable array of writers whose essays range from the hilarious, to the scholarly, to the intensely personal, and sometimes all three at once. A wonderful read that manages to be both a great doorway for new fans, and a way to reconnect for older ones. I had a blast." - Jason DeMarco, Toonami
