Essential Movie Guide Goof!

Aloha!

The Creature from the Black Lagoon dead?! No, it can't be! Believe it or not, but there are some publications that are claiming that I am dead. After being set straight, a recent publication from Titan Books, The Essential Monster Movie Guide, wrote me apologies for their folly. Here is their letter:

Dear Mr Chapman,

Titan Books was very sorry to learn that we had made an error in our recently published The Essential Monster Movie Guide concerning your biography, as it was certainly not our intention to cause you or your fans any distress at all. Please accept our apologies for this error.

The book contains over 350,000 words and we did check our facts as extensively as we possibly could, and we naturally very much regret that this error made it into print. However, you may be interested to know that the information came from a number of sources. Our earliest one is the September 1991 issue of Science Fiction Chronicle, which contains an obituary with all the same information featured in our book. This was then repeated in the following year's Best New Horror 3 and appeared in the actors and actresses section of a 1994 McFarland publication entitled Science Fiction, Horror & Fantasy Film and Television Credits Supplement 2: Through 1993, written by Harris M. Lentz. However, there will be another edition of our Movie Guide coming out later this year, and we will obviously make sure the information is corrected for this printing.

Once again, please accept our apologies for this very unfortunate error.

Yours sincerely,

David Barraclough
Editorial Manager
Titan Books

That's OK, David. We're always "dying" to read monster books anyway.
