* Circumstances have forced us to stop filling book orders here at MidMar.
You can order our books from Amazon, Oldies.com or any other bookseller.
We thank everyone for their support and
patronage throughout the last 56 years—from the early days of Gore Creatures then Midnight Marquee magazine,
through FANEX and Midnight Marquee Press and our venture into filmmaking.
We're still doing books, just not selling them ourselves. With the January release of Sue's sci-fi epic (it took 8 years to finish), Stellar Quasar and the Scrolls of Dadelia, Sue swears her movie making days are over!

Join genre critics Jim Nemeth and Bob Madison for a rule-busting examination of 21 classic – and not so classic – horror, fantasy and science fifiction fifilms, and the classic – and not so classic – books that inspired them.
It Came From…The Stories and Novels Behind Classic Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction Films will delight legions of movie buffs
