Fellow Imagination Connoisseur, Edward Brock, is a writer and photographer (he’s even been published). A self-described, lifelong fan of fantasy, horror and sci-fi, he says he firmly believes that Ray Harryhausen helped him survive his childhood.
Edward provides a glimpse at his amazing library and provides the following explanation …
My collection of paperbacks (85% Horror). As a fan of Horror & Fantasy fiction, I began rebuilding my library several years ago and have made it my primary collecting niche.
Edward’s collection of works even includes a classic copy of Bram Stoker’s Dracula featuring Christopher Lee on the cover which was released by Permabooks. The book followed the 1958 release by Universal-International of the classic Hammer film in Technicolor.
The film featured both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee and put both actors on the map in the horror genre. And while Bela Lugosi’s film version of Dracula in 1931 put the vampire squarely into the popular culture, it was Lee’s portrayal of the Count that is considered to be the “definitive Dracula.”
