BearManor Media announces the release of Curious Goods Behind the Scenes of Friday The 13th by Alyse Wax.

In the first-ever examination of the TV series, author Alyse Wax delves into the series episode-by-episode, with more than sixty exclusive interviews with the cast, writers, directors, and producers, as well as nearly fifty never published behind-the-scenes photos from the cast and crew’s personal collections.
