Monster Stuff!

The first item in this month's "Monster Stuff" is this fun book I remember having as a kid! How to Care For Your Monster was a paperback book published by Scholastic Books, and it was written by Norman Bridwell, better known for his Clifford the Big Red Dog books!

Next, a lobby card from How to Make a Monster, which was signed by star Gary Conway, who you'll recall as also starring in Land of the Giants!

Here's a few more lobby cards from that film, and a still below:

humanduplicators_lc1
Next, we have a lobby card (well, the seller called it that, but it looks like a half-sheet to me) for The Human Duplicators, which I'd imagine was supposed to be about the horrors of cloning, given the "duplicators" part of the title! I've never seen it myself.

humanvapor_lc1
Here's a lobby card or another movie I've never seen, The Human Vapor!

hunchback_lc
Lobby card for one of the many remakes of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Now, we've got two of the Aurora models of the Hunchback, it's always interesting for me to see how different builders will paint their models slightly differently!

An Illustrated History of the Horror Film, this looks like it had been reprinted in a smaller version from the larger hardback. I'd imagine I've read this at some point in my life!
