James Warren was the visionary publisher of Famous Monsters of Filmland, the magazine that fuelled the movie monster craze of the 1960s, and inspired such future filmmakers as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Joe Dante. Warren's magazines established a new category of popular fiction, a transitional step toward the graphic novel. His most famous creation (co-created with Forrest J. Ackerman) was the sensual Vampirella, who continues to be published today. Bill Schelly's Empire of Monsters features numerous eye-opening, often outrageous anecdotes about Warren, a colourful, larger-than-life figure whose ability as a publisher, promoter, and provocateur makes him a fascinating character study.
