Horror And Mystery Photoplay Editions And Magazine Fictionizations from the Author: Thomas Mann. Photoplay editions were usually hardcover reprints of novels that had been made into movies, illustrated with photographs from the film productions. Sometimes they were "fictionized" versions of film scripts, recast in narrative form. Here is an annotated checklist of over 500 horror and mystery photoplay novels and magazine fictionizations, collected over a period of four decades. In an introductory essay the author reflects on the attractions of assembling such a collection, analyzes the social significance and aesthetic content of its books, and draws many surprising inferences from their advertisement, illustrations, and marks of previous ownership. The subsequent catalog is the first survey in the field to extend bibliographical coverage beyond books to movie tie-in magazine stories.
