We've been talking about Gris Grimly's eagerly awaited illustrated Frankenstein book for years now, but finally at this year's SDCC fans will be able to see it for themselves. He'll have limited copies available along with lots of other goodies.
Originally Disney’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman's acclaimed 2008 kids' novel The Graveyard Book was being developed as a stop-motion project to be directed by Henry Selick. Unfortunately that didn't pan out, but there's still life in the old tombstone garden!
Neil Gaiman is definitely one of the more popular writers among the Dread Central crew so, even though the story might be geared toward the younger crowd, we're all still pretty stoked to hear that his Newberry Medal-winning The Graveyard Book is heading to the big screen.
If you listen closely, you'll hear the collective sound of hearts breaking around the world. Alvin Schwartz's book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has long been a gateway for kids to get into the genre with its spooky short stories and incredible artwork by Stephen Gammell. Sadly, HarperCollins, publisher of the terror tomes, has made one of the single most boneheaded decisions we've ever reported on.
Feeling a bit left out since Clive Barker released the third book in his amazing Abarat series because you never got around to checking out Books 1 and 2? Well, we've got you covered because Dread Central has two sets of the first three books - Abarat; Abarat: Days of Magic, Nights of War; and Abarat: Absolute Midnight - to give away to a pair of lucky winners!

What a difference a few months make! In early June we reported that Mary Harron (American Psycho) was in final negotiations to direct Wicked Lovely, Universal’s teen fantasy project being produced by Vince Vaughn's Wild West Picture Show Productions; however, now the studio has put the project in turnaround.
You know ... we really need to stop building things that are smarter than we are. No good can possibly come from creating artificial intelligence that makes 90% of the people around you look silly. And besides, haven't we proved already that mankind is the scourge of planet Earth? It would be wise to 86 us!
It's been the better part of the year since last we reported on the live action adaptation of Melissa Marr's novel Wicked Lovely, the story of a teenage girl who has seen dangerous faeries her entire life, and since then there have been a couple of changes. Namely a change in directors.
The Fall, the second chapter in Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's Strain Trilogy, was released by HarperCollins last week, and the publisher has shared with us a great video interview of del Toro discussing the book and the vampire lore that inspired him.
And another Universal adaptation project is gathering some additional steam today with the announcement that Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry, Stop-Loss) has been tapped to direct Melissa Marr's novel Wicked Lovely, the story of a teenage girl who has seen dangerous faeries her entire life.
On September 21st The Fall, the second chapter in Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's Strain Trilogy, is being released by HarperCollins, and the publisher is making five autographed copies available to Dread Central readers.
Back in the spring of this year we got word about Stefan's Diaries, three new prequel novels in The Vampire Diaries canon based more around the TV series on The CW Network than the books by L.J. Smith, and today we got our first look at the cover art along with a bit more clarification as to what these particular Diaries will be about.
