Hammer Horror Lives in Print


SupernaturalOh, what a wonderful world! Not only is Hammer alive and kicking as a movie studio, but now they’re also looking to bring their unique flavor to the bookshelves of fans everywhere!

According to the official Hammer website the studio will launch its new publishing imprint on March 10th with the release of two novels.

Francis Cottam has penned the novelization of The Resident (film review here), the new Hammer thriller starring Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Christopher Lee. The cover features distinctive photographic artwork based on the UK advertising.

Hammer’s classic catalogue is also represented, with a brand new edition of Peter Curtis’ source novel of The Witches, the 1966 horror starring Joan Fontaine and scripted by Nigel Kneale. Curtis’ novel was first published in 1960 as The Devil’s Own.
