The Overstreet Guide to Collecting Horror is now available for purchase at gemstonepub.com and at comic book stores and specialty shops. This book is the latest in Gemstone Publishing’s ever-expanding line of “How To” reference books for new and experienced collectors.
It is Gemstone’s first guide devoted to a genre rather than a type of collectible. The book is filled with content on movies, comics, literature, TV, video games, and soundtracks all within the horror genre. Collectibles in the book cover a broad scope of material with action figures, toys, movie posters, games, first editions and first appearances, art, statues, premiums, screen-used items, autographs, and more.
There are features on companies and series, such as Universal Monsters, The Walking Dead, EC Comics, Hammer Horror, Friday the 13th, Funko, and General Mills Monster Cereal, as well as topics like ’60s horror TV shows, Japanese horror, first edition books, giant monsters, sci-fi/horror, and out of print VHS tapes and DVDs.
The book includes profiles on horror greats, such as Alfred Hitchcock, Stephen King, Vincent Price, and Wes Craven. There are insightful interviews with experienced collectors and interviews with horror actors Linnea Quigley and Sid Haig. Quigley, a beloved ’80s scream queen, even wrote the foreword for the book.
