You've seen the movie, read the book!

Making its U.S. debut, the 1954 movie-tie-in novelization of THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON sees print from Dream Haven publishers!  Written by John Russell Fearn under the pseudonym of Vargo Statten, the book was only released in the U.K. at the time of the film's release.  Fearn was a British scribe who also wrote sci-fi, westerns and crime pulps.  There is a thorough detailed overview and introduction by gill man fan numero uno, David J. Schow.  I picked up my copy at the recent Chiller Theatre convention and had it signed by cover artist Bob Eggleton!
The original edition fetches big bucks!
