    My first answer? YES. It's FRIDAY THE 13TH and that's damn well reason enough to buy it since there's barely any other publications on the films out there. But also, "Crystal Lake Memories" is a hardcover, limitied edition with a metallic shine cover... so that alone is another reason to get it. Plus the excellent "Making Friday the 13th" is 256 pages total. "Crystal Lake Memories" is 320.

    Honestly however, even if those extra pages are merely pictures, I'd still think it's worth picking up both books. Each are very reasonably priced (about $17.99 and $34.99 or lower). "Making of Friday the 13th", although a great read, left some very big holes especially on the background of the later sequels. Aside from the original film, nothing terribly extensive is mentioned concerning the censored gore footage from all later sequels (certain scenes are mentioned briefly, but totally devoid of pictures). Most annoying of all is that there are several noteable photos online of FRIDAY cut gore... such as this cut bit I will post here from FRIDAY THE 13TH 5: A NEW BEGINNING and some of what Jason really looked like for FRIDAY THE 13TH 6: JASON LIVES. If "Crystal Lake Memories" will print these photos, do the "bottom of the barrel" research, and maybe even come up with some extra morsals of info that even the most die hard FRIDAY fan doesn't know about... it would be the book of the Gods. We'll just have to wait and see. But frankly, I'd think it worth buying just for the dust jacket.

    I'll agree. Crystal Lake Memories looks to be essential to own for any fan of the F13th series. Being the lifelong fan that I am, I can safely say I'm adding this book to my collection as soon as its released. Besides, if you're that big of a fan you need to own everything F13th you can get your mitts on.

    I just finished "Making Friday the 13th" and, as an admitted fan of the series, thought it was great. If this new book has the stories and pictures the previous one didn't (love the one above of Violet's bloody crotch!), I will put down $35 without raising an eyebrow.
    Mortis: Amazon doesn't have a date (which makes me think it's been pushed back) but you can still pre-order for whenever they decide to release it.

    My copy of Crystal Lake Memories arrived from Sideshow this morning. It's my Christmas present so it's now been packed away but it came with an impressive keyring shaped like Jason's hockey mask. The book was signed by the author and Sean Cunningham. Shipping cost more than the book, though!

    Their site doesn't mention that it's signed by Cunningham. I guess that's a bonus.

    The book is amazing...no doubt the F13th fan will not be disappointed with this one. The book is huge and full of photos. I got my copy from the publisher signed by 33 cast and crew members and it came with a Camp Crystal Lake counselor t-shirt! :D ..............................Larry

    Can you guys give me an advance on the contents of the book?
    Specifically, are there any photos of cut footage (gore) from the FRIDAYs? More than what's already been released??

    I'm getting them both. Love this stuff and I'm all for supporting it in the hopes of getting more horror history/criticism books. Out of curiousity, does anyone here own "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" companion book...that looks interesting, too.

    I ordered a copy from Amazon.com and they said it wouldn't be out til January now. With Ghost Hunters and this I am 0-2 lately. (Although I think that the Ghost Hunters are now starting to filter out.)

    Ghost Hunters is a paranormal show on Sci-Fi. These two guys are plumbers by day, try to disprove haunting by night. It is like crack only spookier. One episode and you are usually hooked. Ever so often they catch something on video or audio tape which is really freaky.
