New From Reprobate Press: Now A Major Motion Picture – The Photo Guidebook To Cult Film and TV Tie-In Novels


As promised, we’re seeing in the new year with a new book! Now A Major Motion Picture is the first in our Photo Guidebook series – luxuriously produced and ludicrously limited edition volumes covering a range of esoteric imagery.

Now A Major Motion Picture covers the glory days of the film and TV tie-in novel – the paperback books that were the only way to ‘take the film home’ in the pre-video days. Often with original and striking artwork, these books ranged from new editions of novels that had been filmed to especially written novels based on the movie; from the blockbuster to the B movie; from the sublime to the ridiculous.

This new book brings you 160 pages of full size cover images from some of the most interesting, unusual and outrageous titles across the range of film and TV tie-ins, with notes on the authors, the films and the publishers. Edited by David Flint and with images from the Reprobate collection, this is a must for fans of pulp fiction and cult films alike.

These are the antithesis of the mass market paperback. Instead, we’re producing  just one hundred copies of this luxury collectors edition that will be printed in full colour on high quality art paper.

Also available: the exclusive and ultra limited hardcover edition – just twenty copies of this will be produced, hand numbered and signed, with an exclusive cover variant:


These collectors editions will not be available in any shops.

Published mid-March 2019. Order now!
