TV buff Peer has compiled a list of 1400 TV tie-ins published in the United States through 1990. The TV tie-in is defined as a mass-market paperback based on or issued in conjunction with a TV series. Most are original novels featuring series characters or novelizations of specific episodes. However, everything from humor titles to cookbooks to star biographies are included. Multiple indexes, plus an introduction tracing the development of TV and the paperback book industry, make this a fascinating and useful reference. The inclusion of book values would have been a nice addition for collectors. Still, this work is a better choice for paperback collectors than Randall Larson's Films into Books: An Analytical Bibliography of Film Novelizations, Movie and TV Tie-Ins (LJ 5/1/95) because of its series arrangement. Although there is much duplication, Peer's book is more comprehensive in its narrower topic and will appeal to a more popular audience. Purchase where collecting hobbies are popular.?Kelli N.

Just about the last remaining affordable TV collectible category is that of the tie-in paperback book. With scattered exceptions, paperbacks with ties to TV shows remain pretty easy to find. Why such items have lagged behind in TV memorabilia popularity is a mystery, but with the arrival of Kurt Peer's TV Tie-Ins, the mystery as to just what's out there has been solved ... The cherry on top are the photos included in the work, most of which appear in an insert section ... Apart from its inherent appeal as a fun reference, TV Tie-Ins is a dream come true for fans who have long wondered just how many Flying Nun books were published, or what the title of that hard-to-find seventh I Spy novel is. -- Television Chronicles #10, July, 1997
