Over 20 years of age but still one of the essential readers for fans of weird, trashy drive-in fare. Go look for it on flea markets, or who knows, you might still be able to catch a copy on amazon.

Jack Hunter, Allen Eyles, Robert Adkinson, Nicholas Fry (editors) - Hammer Films - The House of Horror

Creation Books, 1995

 

Comprehensive history of Hammer Films, as usual the emphasis is on Hammer's horror output (which is a bit of a shame, there is much to discover in Hammer's not so well known past).

John McCarty - Hammer Films

Pocket Essentials, 2002

 

A very brief section on the historical details of Hammer Films, succeeded by reviews of the usual often reviewed classics (no surprises here) & a fairly complete filmography of their feature length films. A quick read, but (as with most Pocket Essentials) too thin a book for real substance.

Annette Miersch - Schulmädchen-Report

Bertz, 2003

 

Informative reader on the popular German Schulmädchen Report/Schoolgirl Report-series & its many  rip-offs. Unfortunately written in a very academic manner, & somehow the love for the genre seems to be missing.

German language only !

Jonathan Bignell, Andrew O'Day - Terry Nation (The Television Series)

Manchester University Press, 2005

 

Study on the famous British TV-scriptwriter. Contains a good, interesting biography, but unfortunately the main body of the text, an analysis of his work, focusses only on the work of his sci-fi-series, Doctor Who, Blake's 7 & Survivors, while totally neglecting his work on comedy & crime drama.
