Jurassic Park in the Horror Universe: THE DICTIONARY OF IMAGINARY PLACES

28 May

Every Friday I will be posting here an excerpt from my book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia.  These excerpts will be entries from the book featuring some of my favorite series, often series you might not expect to find in a book about horror crossovers.

THE DICTIONARY OF IMAGINARY PLACES (REFERENCE GUIDE BY ALBERTO MANGUEL AND GIANNA GUADALUPI)

Release Date: January 1, 1980 [expanded in 1999] (Setting is 1980 and 1999 in expansion)

Horror Crosses: King Kong; The Legend of Sleepy Hollow; The Siege of the Red House; The Stepford Wives; The Masque of the Red Death; Shadow: A Parable; Silence: A Parable; Jurassic Park; Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos

Non-Horror Crosses: The book has 730 entries, all crossovers. Buy the book.

The Story: This is a reference guide to places that people who live within this shared fictional reality could visit.

Notes: This list of fictional settings is written under the premise that they are all real places that people could visit. Considering the above crosses, it clearly fits in the Horror Universe. Note that this brings J. Sheridan le Fanu’s The Siege of the Red House, and three works of Poe (The Masque of the Red Death, Shadow: A Parable and Silence: A Parable) into the Horror Universe.
