"Off to the printers we go with Television Terrors, another great addition to our Dark Side library. We do not print to order like many small publishers but instead do a print run of 3,000 copies and when they're gone, they're gone. It is a massive help that so many of you help us out by pre-ordering, and here's where you get your credit for doing so."

I didn't bother this time with the book.

from their snippets they seemed to bea lot of content i'm not interested in such as Spongebob. I also don't have any interest in reading about Buffy as you couldn't move for Buffy articles and covers when it was on tv. Shivers, SFX and the like had it on the cover what seemed like every month.

I'm also not interested in The Addams Family or The Munsters, nor Freddy's Nightmares, Tales from the Crypt or other American series.

Basically it's British tv or nothing and they barely seem to cover that, at least from the pre-release snippets.

I might finally order that Amicus book though.

I'm not bothering with the new book either.
I know what you mean about SFX etc.. back then. Every month was Buffy and Angel and all that Joss Is Boss crap.
The Amicus book is good. I have the original version as well.
Far better that that awful Hammer book.

"Thanks to the number of pre-orders we have had for our Television Terrors book it is a success even before we print it, so we will continue to do a book a year with your invaluable help. A couple of things about this one. I think it is our best book yet and we cover stuff that you can't read much about elsewhere. Sadly I had no room for a splendid chapter on the BBC's Louis Jourdan Dracula written by Will Fowler and Vic Pratt of the BFI, two guys who I hope will join us as regular contributors. Instead I've popped this in the new Dark Side, out November 14th. Television Terrors is slanted more towards British TV than American and let me confess upfront that the only reason Buffy is in there is because Rick Melton drew her for the cover! Even my anthology chapter spends more time talking about obscure TV shows from the UK, and whilst One Step Beyond is American, the final series was shot in the UK with the likes of Christopher Lee and Donald Pleasence as guest stars. I'm very grateful to Anton van Beek for covering the post-Millennial TV horrors in his final chapter because like Austin Powers it's not my bag, man. Enjoyed the first series of Walking Dead though. I think the chapters I enjoyed writing the most were those on the ABC Movie of the Week and the other TV movies and mini-series that followed, plus that definitive One Step Beyond piece and Teatime Terrors, where Kevin insisted I include Pingu and my kids wanted Spongebob and Courage. Kev has done a wonderful job on the design as usual and we are so looking forward to taking delivery of 200 boxes x 15 of Television Terrors next Friday."

This ^ reads like an actual reply to my post above where i say why the book wasn't of interest to me.

Makes me wonder if someone read it and fed the info to Allan.
