This news isn’t completely out of left field. It makes sense with Ghostbusters 2020 aka code name Rust City on the spectral horizon that Sony and a publisher would put together a new making of Ghostbusters book. Nothing can replace Making Ghostbusters by Don Shay. It’s decades out of print, a physical copy can be pricey, and fortunately for ghostheads is available digitally…for free. (Spook Central PDF file) Their isn’t a making of… Read More

Earlier this year I wrote that Inside Editions would be publishing (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, April 29, 2017) a Haynes (UK) Ghostbusters workshop manual. Written by Troy Benjamin and Marc Sumerak. Illustrations by Ian Moores. Related: Ectomobile Workshop Manual To Be Published. (GBI Blog Post) I was born long after the 1959 Cadillac Series 62 Miller-Meteor was built. I wouldn’t have seen a Haynes (US) manual in stores for any 1950s Cadillacs, let alone an Ectomobile. Nearly 60 years later, Haynes, Insight… Read More

Inside Editions is publishing a new Ghostbusters hardcover for an October release. Ghostbusters Ectomobile is a technical manual for Ghostbusters vehicles and equipment. Written by ghostheads Troy Benjamin and Marc Sumerak.

Inside Editions sent over additional official images with press release for the soon to arrive Tobin’s Spirit Guide. Thank you for including Ecto-Containment. This June, Insight Editions is releasing Tobin’s Spirit Guide, an immersive in-world guide based on the fictional book mentioned in the 1984 Ghostbusters film. For the first time, the public can finally pore through the pages of this legendary guide to learn all about the things that go bump in the night—from Class… Read More

On September 8, 2015 I wrote that Amazon added new information, (which I included and will again) about what Insight Editions Tobin’s Spirit Guide (Ghostbusters Inc. Tobin’s Spirit Guide) will be about. With November coming to an end and turkeys breathing a sigh of relief Insight Editions and Amazon have gave ghostheads a first look as the Tobin’s Spirit Guide (abridged) cover.

I had been keeping this under (shrink) wraps in part until I knew I could talk more about Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History. (Ghostbusters Inc. Blog Post, January 5, 2015) During the summer I was contacted by PR By The Book, a public relations firm who represents Insight Editions. The discussion via email was about having a review copy and promoting the book. Which I’ve been doing at least since January. Unless… Read More

The official Ghostbusters Facebook page posted about an upcoming contest where 10 winners will receive signed copies of Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 12, 2015) That is if you’ll be at New York Comic Con.

Back in July I wrote that an abridged version (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) of Tobin’s Spirit Guide was coming from Insight Editions, the publisher of the upcoming Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) New information has been posted from on-line retailer Amazon.

West End Games, Inc. published Tobin’s Spirit Guide (for use with Ghostbusters™ A Frightfully Cheerful Roleplaying Game) during Ghostbusters’ infancy. During the internet age ghostheads have been making fan made versions which can encompass more then the films and the original RPG books. What can be included is unnaturally personal preference. Like this one (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 26, 2015) from Italian ghosthead Joe Nonostante. His version of Tobin’s clocks in at 496… Read More

As 2015 was beginning the powers that be (um sure) announced that Ghostbusters The Ultimate Visual History (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 5, 2015) was being put together and will be available this September. Daniel Wallace, who wrote Ghostbusters visual history and publisher Insight Editions were at SDCC to show off a sample of the book. Along with something big (not quite 100ft big) for a collectors edition.
