The Creature, that Grimms' Fairy Tales I have this in french and that's the only book I still have from my childhood. Can't believe I still have it. Some 30 years later.

^ That's awesome, Punk. Keep good hold of it! I bet it must be worth some money by now. And if not yet, it probably will be. 

Just picked up some really cool books on horror:

Monsters in the Movies by John Landis
(expensive book, but I'm really looking forward to it. big_smile)

A Pictorial History of Horror Movies by Dennis Gifford
An Illustrated History of the Horror Film by Carlos Clarens
Reel Terror: The Scary, Bloody, Gory, Hundred-Year History of Classic Horror Films by David Konow
101 Horror Movies You Must See Before You Die
Horror Cinema by Steven Jay Schneider, Paul Duncan
The Horror Film by Ivan Butler
Horror!: 333 Films to Scare You to Death by James Marriot, Kim Newman

Most of these were pretty cheap, and some of them are older books from the 70's and 80's, so they have a certain retro charm to them already.
