I started Realms of Night just over four years ago, in June 2015, to share my love for horror and fantasy paperbacks. Now here we are, and look what’s happened to the world of paperback collecting! This is an exciting time to be a paperback horror collector in particular. These lurid little books finally have their day in the sun.
Another note worthy of mention — this is the 101st post on Realms of Night! It’s been an off-and-on again project for me as life happens, but I have sincerely enjoyed the conversations and people I’ve met online since I’ve undertaken this endeavor. I wish there was more time to post, but it becomes increasingly apparent our kids will be grown up and leaving us sooner than we’d like. I want to be there to enjoy every moment between now and then. I’m also pursuing a Master of English degree, which effectively drains a lot of the spare time I used for updating the site. This has a direct impact on the length and depth of the articles I will post going forward, but I think the important thing is to share the scans.
I said in the beginning that my goal was simply to share scans of my horror and fantasy library, so there really was an end in sight … and there still is. It’s just taking a little longer to get there. It doesn’t help that I keep buying more books! Which brings us to the reason we’re here.
Below are scans of books that I have added to existing posts on the site. A couple are replacements; the rest are new.
An important note: the new R.L. Stine and Nicholas Pine scans were provided by our friends at Retro Reads, so please check them out!
The scans are below, but the individual posts I have updated are listed here:
- Robert Bloch

With the exception of the scans provided by Retro Reads (noted above), these cover scans are from the library of Christopher Fulbright. Please note that Realms of Night has an eBay page with monthly horror auctions. Follow our page and save us as a favorite seller for updates.
