  2. You're welcome, I'm glad you liked it!

  3. Hello,

    As a young reader of Famous Monsters of filmland in the 70s I always ordered junk from the "Captain CompanY" in the back of the magazine. SOme stuff I still have ... but I'm looking for a series of books I bought and have since lost. Lost both physically and title-wise.

    The series had the Frankenstein Monster involved in various times in history.. usually stirring up trouble and whatnot. The one that stands out for me was when the Monster kidnaps his creator's grand-daughter (who attends Oberlin College, where I live in Ohio) in some wacked plan associated with the American Civil War.

    They are from the 1970s. I think there were four or five in the series. It's maddening trying to track them down. If you have any ideas, please let me know.

    Of course, I could look at some FMs from the 1970s -- but I traded those to a record company for the rights to release a single by the band "Man or Astroman?" in 1995.




  4. Hi Tim,

    I think I vaguely recall the books you're talking about... I'd suggest trying to find them on eBay.

    Good luck!
