@RondoAwards. Already a possible contender for one of the more interesting bits of genre film literature for 2010, Bruce G Hallenbeck's book THE HAMMER VAMPIRE is scheduled for a release in May. It can be ordered within Europe from the publisher, Denis Meikle's Hemlock Books, or in the US from Midnight Marquee.
The author Bruce G Hallenbeck is known to anyone who ever opened a copy of Little Shoppe of Horrors as one of Hammer Film's most fascinating historians and reviewers. The book promises "an in-depth look at all the films, both the behind-the-scenes and a more cerebral look at the subject matter. Loaded with many rare photos from all the films and if you've liked Bruce's work in LSoH going back to 1981 - and his upcoming making-of articles on the four Hammer Mummy films - you are going to love this. Will be approx 260 pages. UK price will be 17.95Poundsterling. AND will have an extensive color center section."
As for the cover... yeah, don't care much for it either, but for a Hallenbeck book you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.
Definitely something to look forward to.
