- Barbara Crampton goes inside the mind of a serial killer…August 18, 2021Read the full article about the audiobook recording of Our Lady of the Inferno by Preston Fassel over at AV Club. EXCERPT: Horror legend Barbara Crampton narrates an exclusive clip from Preston Fassel’s audiobook, now on Audible. Back in 2018, we recommended a new book from the recently relaunched Fangoria Presents imprint called Our Lady Of The Inferno, a gritty crime novel by author Preston Fassel. Chronicling the violent collision of immovable force Ginny Kurva—unofficial den mother for the Times Square sex trade—and unstoppable object Nicolette Aster—a sanitation worker who moonlights as a serial murderer—we said that Fassel’s book “transfers the punchy midcentury pulp aesthetic to the equally grimy milieu of New York City in the early ’80s, for a serial-killer thriller that’s more character- and dialogue-driven than the majority of the dime-store novels that inspired it.”… Read the full article...
- Horrorwolf666 Reviews Wishmaster!February 8, 2021A big thank you to Horrorwolf666, and their lovely 9.5/10 review of Wishmaster: The Novelization. Christian Francis’ amazing novel based on the original screenplay by Peter Atkins. Read the review below, or click the button at the bottom of the page to go to Horrorwolf666’s website. The Wishmaster film has always held a special place in my heart since I first witnessed the grotesque carnage on the screen when I was a teenager. I was blown away by the brilliant use of practical effects and the killer performance from the great but underrated actor Andrew Divoff as The Djinn. So when I got word about a novelization of Wishmaster I was floored and requested a copy to review. If you have not been exposed to this masterpiece of horror cinema and now novel, I will give you a quick synopsis without giving too much away.The ancient evil known as a Djinn is resurrected from a fiery gem prison by accident and is unleashed upon the earth. If he grants three wishes all hell will be let loose upon humanity and the Djinn will sit atop a mountain of gore as king of this universe. The only person who can put an end to this madness is Alexandra Amberson a mere mortal against a darkness older than humankind. This is the ultimate battle of good versus evil.If the synopsis doesn’t grab you by the throat then this book may not be for you, but if you dig indescribable evils and eternal torment then this one will be for you. Christian Francis really nailed the dark foreboding theme of the film and transcribed it perfectly into this novel. While I was reading along I could picture everything from the movie happening all over again in my head. The Wishmaster novel is a perfect companion piece to the film. I think the book expands the story more and you really get to know the characters on a deeper level. The evil of the Djinn definitely takes hold of you while you read along and delve deeper into the madness.The Wishmaster novel is a complete success and a killer tribute to the film in which I love. I really enjoyed reading this one immensely and I definitely recommend you check it out. If you are a fan of the great Clive Barker or King’s work then this one is for you. I give the Wishmaster a 9.5 out of 10 score and you can find it now on Amazon to buy.Horrorwolf666 Go to Horrorwolf666’s website...
- Wishmaster Returns!January 10, 2021As you wish… Written by the creator of Hellraiser 2, 3 & 4, Peter Atkins, and directed by one third of the legendary KNB Effects Group, Robert Kurtzman – Wishmaster was an instant genre hit upon release, and went on to spawn three sequels, action figures and even a staged musical. The film showcased its tale with an abundance of imagination and excitement, establishing itself as a classic worthy of its creator’s lineage – yet unlike many of its contemporaries, it never received a novelization. 23 years after its initial release, Encyclopocalypse Publications step into the fray to right this wrong. We have partnered with Peter Atkins to bring an original novelization to life. The book, written by Christian Francis, is based on Atkins’ original screenplay. An audiobook later is currently in production for release later in the year.UPDATE: What you wish for, you get – This book has been released 21 days earlier than expected. Get yours now! The ‘Wishmaster’ Franchise Returns With Official Novelization Based on Original Screenplay!...
A captivating read that excels in unpredictable twists, strong characterization, and a plot that slowly reveals the real monsters in this world. Warning: they're not what the reader expects.
D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Highly recommended for Halloween, horror, and film fans alike. Christian Francis deserves a shout out for his narration. I LOVED his dramatic readings of Loomis's lines and thoroughly enjoyed how he read the interviews. Well done.
I had no idea where this macabre story was heading and loved every second of this journey into madness. Wonderfully narrated by Carol Schneider. Give it a listen!
I didn't see how this ended coming. Wow what a great listen it's not very long but it keeps your attention and wondering till the end I loved the story five thumbs up from me very well worth getting.
