A new edition of Dark Shadows cast encyclopedia Barnabas & Company has just been published, updating the definitive guide to the show's actors.

Jamison with new research and interviews, expanding it to a massive 576 pages, and includes an afterword by Dark Shadows News Page editor Stuart Manning. From the publisher:
Dark Shadows remains one of the most popular cult TV shows of all time. Barnabas & Company tells the tale of the marvelous actors and actresses who came together in a tiny studio in New York City to make magic. Through the performers’ own words, read about the paths that led them to the fictional haunted hamlet of Collinsport, Maine and beyond.

Dark Shadows. Included are updated chapters on Jonathan Frid, Kate Jackson, David Selby and interviews with Humbert Allen Astredo, Betsy Durkin, Robert Rodan, Jerry Lacy, Lara Parker, Denise Nickerson, Conard Fowkes, Addison Powell, Christopher Pennock and more!

Wow--a true "Bible" of the Dark Shadows Actors Guild! A must have! I know it's early yet, but do you suppose someone is out there compiling a new bio on Jonathan Frid?

Jeff said...

Wow ... that's an expensive book. Would love to own it, just don't have the funds at the moment. Maybe it'll get released on Nook and/or Kindle and I can get it later?

The original version is available on the Nook and I almost bought it till I saw this. I am wondering if it will include the passing of Jonathan Frid?

StuartM said...

Yes, the book does include a mention of Jonathan's passing.
