DreamHaven Books is proud to announce the first US publication of the novelization of the 1954 classic film, Creature From the Black Lagoon. Written by Vargo Statten (John Russell Fearn) in 1954, this book was published only in the UK and has become fantastically scarce, with original copies selling for as much as $6000. The publisher is now offering an enhanced version of the original novel at a very affordable price.

The book will contain the original novel but we have added some new items:

Stills from the film.

A new introduction by David Schow.

A new cover by Bob Eggleton.

SIGNED by Ricou Browning (the original Creature actor) and Julie (Julia) Adams, star of the film.

Limited to only 250 copies.

Fine in fine dj.
