Not sure if this has been mentioned, but my buddy and blogger David Zuzelo self-released a tome of Italian action flick reviews titled Tough to Kill. Really enjoyable stuff. Interviewed him here, with links to purchased the book from Lulu.com

I had an idea a while ago for a book on Spaghetti Westerns on much lesser known actors, and I know one has been done on people like Gordon Mitchell, William Berger, etc, but I wanted to look up about actors like Jeff Cameron, Fred Robsham, and such other much lesser known ones. I've been interested especially in Cameron, because there is very little info about him, I'd love to know about his life, etc. No one knows how he died either, back in 1985. But thats just an idea I was thinking of.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I've got the FAB press book Any Gun Can Play, and that's a really good English language book on Spaghetti Westerns!

Quite a few books coming out by the look of it -

Howard Hughes has a new spaghetti western book in the works - his biggest yet.

Death in the Desert: The Complete Spaghetti Westerns Film Guide


"Instantly recognizable from their music and visual style, spaghetti westerns are a magnificently popular cult film genre. Through home media, they've stayed alive and available to an avid audience, enjoying remarkable influence and lasting success. In over 500 detailed film reviews covering 20 years of westerns in Europe, genre expert Howard Hughes portrays European western films and filmmaking during their frenzied, popular heyday. He narrates the spaghetti western story from the genre's early, tentative days to its explosive golden era following the success of A Fistful of Dollars and the mass-produced scramble of films that swamped cinemas in the late 1960s, before the gradual falling off of enchantment with the genre. Death in the Desert also covers other westerns made in Europe in the 1960s and '70s: the early West German "Winnetou" westerns, swashbuckling Spanish "Zorro" movies, kung-fu westerns, German musical and comedy westerns, American and British westerns filmed in Spain and East Germany. This essential read for cinephiles, collectors and completists, is fully illustrated with rare posters and stills."

Roberto Curti has a new volume on Freda out in a month or two -

Riccardo Freda: The Life and Works of a Born Filmmaker



"In an eclectic career spanning four decades, Italian director Riccardo Freda (1909-1999) produced films of remarkable technical skill and powerful visual style, including the swashbuckler Black Eagle (1946), an adaptation of Les Miserables (1947), the peplum Theodora, Slave Empress (1954) and a number of cult-favorite Gothic and horror films such as I Vampiri (1957), The Horrible Dr. Hichcock (1962) and The Ghost (1963). Freda was first championed in the 1960s by French critics who labeled him "the European Raoul Walsh," and enjoyed growing critical esteem over the years. This book covers his life and career for the first time in English, with detailed analyses of his films and exclusive interviews with his collaborators and family."

Electric Dreamhouse Press have a new volume coming on EYES WITHOUT A FACE (won't link the cover as the pic is bloody huge), and Stephen Thrower has two more books on the way - a heavily updated release of BEYOND TERROR with 120 more pages of text and lots of new illustrations, and his second Franco book, of which he says "The word count for Vol.2 currently stands at 216,000 plus about ten thousand in appendices, so it's definitely on course."  Too much bloody stuff to purchase it seems.
