Topic: Grindhouse Edition Recommended Reading

Does anyone have a complete list of the authors/works included in the "Recommended Reading" booklet from the Grindhouse edition?

Many thanks!

Re: Grindhouse Edition Recommended Reading

I looked through my PDFs and I see that there is a recommended reading section in the Tutorial Booklet. Do you own the tutorial book and are just asking for a more condensed list of the recommended books and authors? (The way the material is presented is not in the traditional list of books and authors - it's full paragraphs divided into discussions of various authors and their works - so compiling a list will take some effort.)

Or do you not have it, and are curious what the publisher recommends?

My mistake, apparently it's in the Deluxe ed. box set (9th picture from the left): … SwFsJhqx9E

I never saw this booklet and wondered what authors and works it recommends.

So, the second proposition you made is closer to my question, I think.

Thanks for answering!

Re: Grindhouse Edition Recommended Reading

I believe that booklet is reprinted in the Tutorial Book in the Grindhouse set (the art and text I see in that image match up with it, at least).

It's really a full discussion of various authors and works, but, I can at least provide you with the authors and any works that stand out:

Clive Barker - lists numerous works - too many to write here, to be honest

Robert E Howard - mentions Conan and Solomon Kane

Fritz Leiber - lists numerous works, including the Lankhmar series

HP Lovecraft - recommends beginning with the well-known short stories (Call of Cthulhu, etc.) Also mentions Robert Bloch, Henry Kuttner, Frank Belknap Long, and August Derleth

Edgar Allan Poe - lists the classic horror stories and poems

Clark Ashton Smith - mentions the Zothique Cycle, Hyperborean Cycle, and Averoigne Cycle

JRR Tolkien

Jack Vance -  mentions many novels and stories, such as the Dying Earth and the Demon Princes

Jules Verne 

HG Wells

Others [no discussion of these - just this list]

Anderson, Poul (The Broken Sword, etc)
Bierce, Ambrose (everything!)
Blackwood, Algernon (The Willows, etc)
Bradbury, Ray (Something Wicked This Way Comes)
Carroll, Lewis (Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass)
Chambers, Robert W. (The King in Yellow)
Doyle, Arthur Conan (The Lost World, etc)
Dumas, Alexandre (The Three Musketeers, etc)
Hodgson, William Hope (House on the Borderlands, The Night Lands, etc)
Homer (The Iliad, The Odyssey)
Joshi, ST (The Weird Tale, The Evolution of the Weird Tale)
King, Stephen (Eyes of the Dragon, Cycle of the Werewolf, the Dark Tower series)
Lord Dunsany (most everything)
Malory, Sir Thomas (Le Morte d’Arthur)
Merritt, A. (The Moon Pool, The Ship of Ishtar, etc)
Moorcock, Michael (Elric stories, Von Bek stories, Corum stories, many, many others)
Orwell, George (1984, Animal Farm)
Shakespeare, William (MacBeth, Hamlet, etc)
Shelley, Mary (Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, The Last Man)
Stephenson, Robert Louis (The Strange Curse of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island)
Stoker, Bram (Dracula, Lair of the White Worm, etc)
Swift, Jonathan (Gulliver’s Travels)
Wilde, Oscar (The Picture of Dorian Grey)
