In the early '90s, I bought practically every horror related book or magazine that I could find.

Great book. Also Romero's novel Dawn of the Dead. I have some great glossy horror books from France and Italy. They're small but very glossy with the most exquisite photographs and are based on such films as Cannibal Holocaust , Texas Chainsaw Massacre , Argento, Fulci, etc. Sadly, most of my books are normally boxed up so I rarely have the opportunity to read up on genre subjects. My spending on movie books has really dropped off in the last decade but I have purchased the beautiful Beyond Terror Fulci book ltd signed edition and the Argento hardback 1st version from Fab Press in the last few years.
DVD Connoisseur , Oct 28, Deaddevilman , Oct 29, The Psychotronic books and Terror On Film are my bibles.

Scott Stine himself. Scott Stine: This book is a continuation of a short-lived publication of mine that was devoted to 'disposable horror fare of the s and s,' which in itself was a continuation of several fanzines which I had started in the mids. Although horror cinema of a trashier persuaon formed the crux of the magazine, the book further explores other mediums, including comics, magazines, toys, what have you. In other words, I ramble on incessantly about all of the groovy monster crap that replaced anything remotely resembling a healthy social life during my formative years.
MM: Obviously there are a lot of hardcore fans who share a special affinity for the trash films of yesteryear.
Do you think those fans will embrace this book and be able to openly acknowledge and appreciate the potives and negatives within this piece of literature? SS: Going by the other fans with whom I've talked and met, I'm pretty certain that those poor souls who thrive on this type of fare will 'get' my approach. Humor is an essential facet of vintage exploitation cinema, so if you are asking that my thrashing of the very fare I adore will offend like-minded fans, I seriously doubt it.

My first book, which covered some of the same types of material as my recent Trashfiend book was fairly well-received, despite its innumerable faults. Of which, I take full accountability.

Alas, I found with my second volume of the Gorehound's Guide that fans of newer post fare are a much different breed of beast altogether, and often take films from that era far too seriously, or are mply unable to separate nostalgia from objectivity. Granted, my humor was a little more pointed when approaching the glut of rote slasher fare I found myself having to trudge through in the 80s book, but it still surprises me that my opinions on some of these films offended so many readers.
Reviews on Amazon for this book will attest to that. C'est la vie.
SS: Having published three issues of Trashfiend the magazine between the second and third books, I made a concerted effort to improve upon my obvious weaknesses as a non-fiction writer which many reviews of the Gorehound's Guides pointed out, thankfully. I also worked on refining my 'formula,' at least when it came to the reviews. Hopefully, this book retains the balance between 'entertaining' and 'educational' for which I strove.
Ade from the writing end, I faced numerous obstacles, not the least of which was long my nearly completed final draft to a virus-related crash only days before it was originally due. Thankfully, the book's release was delayed due to problems on the distribution end, which allotted me about four months to completely reconstruct Trashfiend ung whatever bits and pieces I was able to salvage from my soon-to-be junked hard drive. Despite the perpetual migraines and loss of ten years off my life that this disaster claimed, I think the book was the better for it in the long run.
MM: Now when it comes to compiling a comprehenve piece of work like this, I imagine an unbelievable time is invested in it.
