Fiction or non-fiction?

I know there was a whole series of paperbacks written and published to tie-in with Kevin Sorbo's "Hercules" and Lucy Lawless' "Xena," when those were on the air.  I know, because I have several of them. (And when I say I have them, I have them boxed up and in storage, which makes them inaccessible at this time.)

There was also a paperback tie-in, based upon the script, written and published to tie-in with "Clash of the Titans," when it was first released to theaters. Not the remake, but the original version, as there again, I have a copy of it. And in the same place as my "Hercules" and "Xena" books.

And while I do not have a copy of it, there was a comic book version of "Hercules Unchained," which was pubished to tie-in with the release of the film. Which is how I first became acquainted with the film.

As for Mad Max . . .

I don't know about the first two films in the series, but as for the third film "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome." as was done in those days, there was a paperback tie-in, based upon the script, which was written and published to tie-in with the release of the film. As there again, I have a copy of it, which is sitting with all the other paperbacks I have mentioned.

As for non-fiction books, I do believe there have been books published on the subjects of Kevin Sorbo's "Hercules," "Xena," and the sword and sandal films of the decades mentioned. Though, I don't remember any of the titles and/or the authors involved, at this time.

Try Edgar Rice Burroghs or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Both excellent writers who  invented the genre.
Good reading! Lotsa fun. Thumbup

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
