That Legend of the Werewolf book is worth a few quid more than you paid for it on ebay

Yep i noticed that, I'm thinking about reading it and selling it on, it's probably just a basic by the numbers adaption anyway.

Have you read this book Nos?

I was thinking of getting it. I've not read many novelizations but this looks like it would highlight the good ones.

No I haven't seen that before.

I just tend to pick up books that i remember being about as a kid If i find original copies with the original covers.

Also I'm a bit of a sucker for old Horror film tie ins or the books classic films were based on.

At the moment i've got original film tie in books of-

The Devils
Witchfinder general
Straw dogs
Don't look Now,
Dawn of the Dead,
Martin.
Damien, Omen 2.
Legend of the werewolf.

Pretty sure I've got others as well, I'll have to look tomorrow as it's late.

There don't seem to be any new coffee table books out this Autumn for mass market consumption in the genres we know and love.

Remember when we got things like The Hammer Vault and John Landis Monsters in the Movies every year and now nothing.

I know that specialist publishers have released books on Hammer stuffed with lobby cards but they are around fifty quid in hardback which is too much in my opinion.

There doesn't seem to be any new Doctor Who coffee table books either. Perhaps they've run out of ideas.
