Big Book of Japanese Giant Monster Movies: Vol. 1: 1954-1980 Book:

The Revised and Expanded 2nd Edition of the original is here, covering over 25 new films including Warning from Space (1956), Half Human (1957), The Birth of Japan (1959), The Whale God (1962), The Lost World of Sinbad (1963), Great Yokai War (1968), Voyage Into Space (1970), Submersion of Japan (1973), 6 Ultra Brothers vs. the Monster Army (1974), The Bermuda Depths (1978) and Attack of the Super Monsters (1982) to name only a few!

From the 1st Edition: "What's this?" you ask, "Another crudely fan produced book of reviews and boring synopses of Toho's Godzilla films?" Not quite, if you're a seasoned Godzilla fan like the author eager for new information on old classics, this is in fact the book for you. Not only does it cover Toho's dai kaiju eiga (even the rarely seen Daigoro vs. Goliath), but for the first time in America offers reviews, trivia and detailed production information on all of Daiei's classic Gamera films, Toei's Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds, and even the Shaw Brother's Mighty Peking Man to name a few. Still think you already know it all about Japanese giant monster films? Did you know that King Seesar originally had horns and was named King Barugan? Or that Tadao Takashima refused to fly to Guam for on location filming for Son of Godzilla? Or that Katsumi Nimiamoto, who played Titanosaurus in Terror of Mechagodzilla, was also the acrobatic hero of Ultraman Leo on TV? Don't know who Tadao Takashima or Katsumi Nimiamoto are, don't worry this book will tell you that too. If you think you've already read every good book on Japanese Giant Monsters think again.

Wait there's more!!!! This book also offer bonus entries on non-kaiju films like Battle in Outer Space, Toho's Hammer horror inspired "Bloodthirsty Trilogy" and TV's Agon the Atomic Dragon to name only a few.
