About the Author
Award-winning author Stephen D. Sullivan has been a Monster Kid all his life, and a professional one since 1980, when he joined the creative team for Dungeons & Dragons. Since then, Steve has worked on lots of other cool properties, including CHILL, Tournament of Death, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horrors, Legend of the Five Rings, Speed Racer, Thunderbirds, and Iron Man, among others. His recent projects include Daikaiju Attack (a free weekly giant monster serial), the ongoing Canoe Cops vs. the Mummy story (read in monthly chapters on the website of filmmaker Christopher R. Mihm), Steve’s novelization of the classic horror film White Zombie, and his crazy double-adaptation of Manos: The Hands of Fate into two separate novels (one comedy, one horror). Steve is currently hard at work on Frost Harrow, a modern Gothic-horror series, which he describes as “Dark Shadows meets Stephen King,” and Cushing Horrors, a classic “monster rally” tale. Contact Steve via Twitter, Facebook, or his website. Find out more about his projects at: www.stephendsullivan.com

Well, first of all, I have always loved the movie. Mostly because of John Reynolds' masterful portrayal of Torgo, the Caretaker of this desolate den of horror where most of the action (I use the word "action" quite wrongly) takes place.
As Mr. Sullivan notes in his afterword John Reynolds is to MANOS what Dwight Frye was to the 1931 film version of DRACULA.
But I am not here to discuss MANOS the motion picture... I am here to review Mr. Sullivan's novelization of that historic production. And that creates a problem.
You see, I have been email friends with him ever since he co-hosted a podcast with Linda Godfrey of BEAST OF BRAY ROAD fame and I am very fond of him. This being so you will realize I would have a difficult time saying anything negative about this book.
Fortunately, that isn't an issue. This is the PERFECT companion to the movie given us by the late, great Hal Warren. who makes Ed Wood look like Cecil B. deMille.
You will definitely want to add this book to your library if you be a Friend of the Master and a devotee of Manos.
Do it for Torgo...
Do it for Little Debbje...
Do it for the Master's Demon Hound...
But most of all...do it for yourself...you will be laughing for days. 😂
(And don't forget the Companion Book: MANOS, THE TALONS OF FATE.
In a world where MANOS, THE HANDS OF FATE was written by Good Writer and turned REALLY frightening Little Debbie and her parents don't realize that they have not arrived at their Vacation Destination.
Only their Final Destination....
