Best of The Scream Factory


From 1988 to 1997, The Scream Factory provided an exhaustive and often irreverent overview of all aspects of horror—from fiction to film and beyond. It became a go-to reference for horror aficionados around the globe. 20 years after the magazine ceased publication, editors Peter Enfantino, Robert Morrish, and John Scoleri have sifted through the contents of the magazine’s 20-issue run to assemble this 590-page 8.5” x 11” epic collection.

Cimarron Street Books is pleased to present The Best of The Scream Factory, reprinting more than 70 articles from the magazine’s golden age, covering such diverse topics as: the best horror novels of the ‘80s; a viewer’s guide to Godzilla movies; horror in the pulps; the worst in horror; dark suspense fiction; the influence of Night of the Living Dead on fiction and film; horror on old-time radio; sci-fi/horror hybrids; western horror; werewolf fiction; British horror fiction and films; Canadian horrors; and horror in the comics. In addition to the nearly 600-page selection of “greatest hits,” the editors have penned a brand new 25,000 word introduction!

We have a limited number of 'scratch & dent' copies that have minor imperfections (a bumped corner or creased cover, etc). The full content is present and readable, but as they do not meet our quality standards to sell as new, they are offered at a discounted rate.
