    Oh man! Cool stuff TJ! I like this thread, dude, do you know if there was ever a novelisation for either SOUTHERN COMFORT or THE HITCHER? anyway, here are a few of the cool ones that I have -





    Dude, you got one of the first two 'Mad Max' novels?! Hold on to that sucker, it's extremely rare, as it was never published outside of Australia, as far as I know. I want to get both of 'em for my own collection, but every time I locate one or more copies, they're rediculously high-priced! You might be able to sell that sucker for a tidy sum if you're ever hard up for cash...

    Here's the link to a site with some of the only online information I could find about the first two 'Mad Max' novels:
    http://www.madmaxmovies.com/archives/books/index.html

    I've been meaning to get ahold of the 'Escape From New York' and 'The Dark Crystal' novels. Too bad there aren't novelizations for 'Escape From L.A.' or Ridley Scott's 'Legend'.

    As far as I can tell, there is no novelization for 'The Hitcher'. Which is too bad, it would be such a cool tie-in to own, considering that the 'The Hitcher' is one of the top thirteen best horror films of the 80's (according to both Fangoria and myself). So is 'Near Dark', but that doesn't have a novelization either, nor does 'Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer'.

    I looked up "Southern Comfort" on Amazon, and there was a book by that title published the same year as the movie was released. I have no idea whether or not it's actually a novelization, as I couldn't locate any cover art when searching Google Images, and there weren't any copies for sale on eBay. Couldn't find any information on the plot of the book or its origins either, just the authors and the year of publication. Amazon did not even list the publishing house, which is NOT a normal thing for Amazon! But I did find out the publisher from a different online bookseller.

    Here's the info I dug up:

      Thanks for the info TJ, I'll have to check and see if that is the SOUTHERN COMFORT movie novel. Yeah that MAD MAX 2 book; my girlfriend went to live & work in Australia for a year and came across a good second-hand copy in a charity shop, she knew it was one of my favourites so she sent it over - it's a good tie-in that even has ten pages of b&w photos. I'm gutted about there being nothing for THE HITCHER and even LEGEND... oh well.

        Added 'Damien: Omen II' to its proper alphabetical placement...

                      Oh man! does this mean there are TWO versions of the First GHOSTBUSTERS film novel? I have the Larry Milne-penned version; guess I gotta get the other! this has happened before - there are two versions for THE TERMINATOR - one by Shaun Hutson and the other by Randall Frakes & Bill Wisher. Thanks Thomas Jarvis! You the Man!

Thanks Thomas Jarvis! You the Man!
                        Yep, two different novelizations. Didn't know aboout the two different 'Terminator' novelizations, only knew of the one by Randall Frakes and co. Other cases of two different novelizations include:

                        1) 'Friday the 13th Part 3', one by Michael Avallone and one by Simon Hawke

                        2) 'Creature From the Black Lagoon', one by Vargo Stratton and one by Carl Dreadstone (actually Ramsey Cambell) that was also published under the pseudonym "E.K. Leyton", not to mention the spin-off novel 'Creature From the Black Lagoon: Time's Black Lagoon' by Paul DiFilippo that was published by DH Press in 2006.

                        3) 'Bride of Frankenstein', this film actually had three different novelizations and one spin-off novel (not counting the other spin-off, a juvenile fiction): a short adaptation by Guy Preston that was written for the English magazine Pearson Weekly and published at the time of the film's release on September 28, 1935; a full length novelization by Michael Egremont that was published by Queensway Press in the UK and Readers Library in the US in 1935 and republished for a brief run by BookFinger in 1976; and another full length novelization by Ramsey Cambell (writing as "Carl Dreadstone") that was published by Berkley in 1977; as well as the spin-off novel by Elizabeth Hand called 'Bride of Frankenstein: Pandora's Bride' that was published by DH Press (Dark Horse) on September 28 (does that date sound fammiliar?) of 2006.
