A House Name used for a short-lived 1977 series of six Berkley Medallion paperbacks based on classic Universal Horror films. Known users of the Dreadstone pseudonym are Ramsey Campbell with three titles and Walter Harris with two. The latter's initial contribution – sometimes erroneously credited to Campbell – was a second novel Tie to The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) whose plot is much changed from that of the film and its contemporary novelization by John Russell Fearn writing as Vargo Statten.
