We just wanted our loyal customers to know that Gary had a stroke Jan. 9 of the suckiest year ever, 2020.
He is home and learning to use his right arm and leg and is making good progress. He can now
get to his office and is working on our next book—SIX GUN LAW VOL. 3!
Sue is laying out Troy Howarth's MURDER BY DESIGN: DARIO ARGENTO.
And Lambie is not limping but still can't jump on her bench under the window.

"Midnight Marquee Press has given us a series of first-rate books on subjects that matter to film buffs and historians alike, even though they've been neglected by mainstream publishers. I salute them and wish them continuedsuccess."—Leonard Maltin

 

* 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!

But do fifilms never live up to their literary inspirations? Or are some movies just … better than the books that inspired them?
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
along with devoted readers of cherished fantastic fiction
