You may wonder why I’m always talking about horror reference books. Is it because that I’m an avid collector of them and hope that my passion for them rub off on you? Or maybe because I feel the need to keep covering this kind of material because not too many other sites out there do? Or maybe just because I still think that these kind of books are a great way to learn more about this genre that we love so much. Maybe it is all of them.
Now that we’ve finished the Karloff book, it is time to move onto something a little different. Our next book that we’ll be diving into is Troy Howarth’s So Deadly, So Perverse Volume 1 1963-1973, which was published by Midnight Marquee eariler this year. Can’t wait to read into this and start adding some giallo titles to my already overflowing list of movies that I want to watch or re-watch. But once we’re done, we’ll have our review up shortly there after.
But for those fans of giallos, as well as books on them, Mr. Howarth and Midnight Marquee will be giving us Volume 2 of these fine series at the end of this year, sometime around Decemeber. This one will be covering the years from 1974 all the way up to 2014. There is even a 3rd volume in the works, which will cover giallos from outside of Italy, which has a planned released date of December of 2016.. Got to say, this is going to be a great 3-book set for any library.
For more information, head over to Midnight Marquee’s website HERE. Or, even you’re going to be at Monster Bash in October, Troy will be there selling his books (as well as his newest one on Lucio Fulci) at the show. And even better…he signs the books for free!
