One of the most revered and collectable non-fiction books from recent times is Stephen Thrower’s Beyond Terror. A look at the work of Italian goremeister Lucio Fulci, it sold out of its first print many years ago and copies sell for ridiculous amounts (when you can find them). Now fans can pre-order a new luxurious imprint through an Indiegogo campaign run by publishers Fab Press and the initial response has been amazing.
Not only is the book revamped, it’s been totally revised and expanded and - exclusive to the crowdfunded release - a new chapter featuring an interview with the director from 1994. As well as new images and writing (and we’re not talking a little - there are 128 extra pages, 80,000 more words, and 350 more images), the book will be encased in a fabulous ‘Book of Eibon’ (fans will understand) and come with a DVD of Fulci trailers, collected for the first time. Other perks offered include a fabulous T-shirt, as well as signed posters and even a bonus copy of Thrower’s other Fab Press hit Nightmare USA. This edition of Beyond Terror will not be reprinted in this format, and any subsequent traditionally-released editions will be missing the extra interview chapter and the DVD and Eibon case.
The Indiegogo campaign was launched on May 24th just after midday, and by 5 pm had raised over 250% of its target, which shows not only the passion Fulci fans still have for his work but how much people want this luscious-looking book!
The campaign lasts for 35 days, finishing on June 28th so there is still time to secure your copy.
Exclusive to the Beyond Terror Special Edition
• Exclusive Feature 1) — LUCIO FULCI TRAILER SHOW — a full-length DVD featuring a re-mastered collection of every known Lucio Fulci movie trailer, produced exclusively for FAB Press by Nucleus Films’ Marc Morris. All trailers are in English except where foreign language was the only option, and for all of those, we have produced brand new specially commissioned English subtitles! This DVD is NTSC format, no region coding, so it can be played wherever you are in the world.
• Exclusive Feature 2) — EIBON COLLECTOR'S BOX PACKAGING — the book and DVD will be housed together in a custom-designed heavy-duty presentation box reminiscent of the Book of Eibon from The Beyond, complete with silk pull-ribbon to lift the book from the box, textured cover and magnetic closure flap.
• Exclusive Feature 3) — BONUS CHAPTER — an extensive interview with Lucio Fulci... This new pressing of Beyond Terror will include a final chapter that will only ever be included in the Special Edition — it will NOT be in any future high street or trade edition, neither will it be in any edition offered for sale online anywhere else except direct from the FAB Press Indiegogo page… When Lucio Fulci visited the UK in 1994 as a film festival special guest, he was interviewed by renowned horror journalist John Martin. For the first time ever John has allowed that entire conversation to be published completely uncut, accompanied by rare behind the scenes and personal photographs of Fulci at work and at leisure.
• Exclusive Feature 4) — THE BEYOND WRAPAROUND BOOK JACKET — Special Edition books will be complete with the trade edition Zombie Flesh Eaters cover design, but they will ALSO include the original cover design from the 1999 hardback and 2003 paperback editions included as an additional bonus dust jacket...
