---Word from Stark House:
Normally, Stark House Press reprints mystery books from the 50's and 60's. But the next book is a bit different. It's a reprint and a complete revisement of a book that was published originally by Berkley Boulevard Books in 1999 as "THEY'RE HERE..." INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS: A TRIBUTE, edited by Kevin McCarthy & Ed Gorman.
This new edition from Stark House, simply titled INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS: A TRIBUTE, removes a few of the redundant essays, includes a new interview with Kevin McCarthy, star of the original 1956 version of the movie; and features many b&w stills from Kevin's personal collection.
Still included from the original edition is an introduction by Dean Koontz, essays by Stephen King, Jon L. Breen (on author Jack Finney) and Tom Piccirilli; and interviews with Dana Wynter (co-star of the 1956 classic), Philip Kaufman (dir of the 1978 remake), Robert H. Solo (the producer), W. D. Richter (screenwriter of the 1978 version), Abel Ferrara (dir of the 1997 remake) and Stuart Gordon (original screenwriter of the 1997 version).
The Berkley edition was not available for very long, as Boulevard folded soon after the book was published. The Stark House edition will be priced at $17.95, isbn 1-933586-07-9, and will be available in about three weeks.
