The Books of Blood

New Arrivals

blog-apr18.jpg

Recent arrivals in the archive include various editions of Brian James Freeman's excellent Detours anthology which collects shorter pieces of writing which grew as offshoots of authors' current work. These include a lost first chapter of Michael Marshall's Smith's Spares, an abandoned fragment from Ray Bradbury, and Clive's A Night's Work - all fascinating..!

It's always great to come across editions from around the world - although we found these Chinese copies of The Books of Blood pretty close to home in England. The Lilja's Library collection, Shining in the Dark, (including Pidgin And Theresa) has been enjoying multiple translations, so we look forward to seeing more of these in days to come.

Scored to Death collects the thoughts of composers on the horror films they've written for, and includes interviews with Simon Boswell and Christopher Young, to say nothing of a host of other eminent composers! 

Idolos del cine is the Spanish edition of Graven Images, a fabulous collection of horror film posters with an essay by Clive in it, and the Death Head artwork poster is a new arrival in the store - in stock and shipping now! 

Oh - for those of you eagerly awaiting new titles in the Playscripts Series - we came across a number of handwritten amendments to the script for Hunters in the Snow which delayed us a little whilst we made edits. But we're full steam ahead on those and our next update will have a firm publication date!

In the meantime there are new additions to the Archive gallery, including some rather nice Hellraiser 2 lobby sheets from Spain, some soundtrack covers and the front page of the shooting draft screenplay for Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh - do take a look!
