Novelisation of Vampire Circus by Mark Morris

Georgina Hawtrey-Woore, senior editor at Arrow, has commissioned a novelisation of the Hammer film Vampire Circus from author Mark Morris. Arrow has a major publishing deal with Hammer Films for a number of novels based on their films penned by well-known names in horror fiction. The agent for the World Rights deal was John Jarrold. The book is due early in 2012.

Mark Morris said: ‘My love affair with Hammer began when I saw – and was terrified by – my first Hammer film, The Brides Of Dracula, at the age of eleven or twelve. Because Hammer has been hugely responsible for my life-long love of the horror genre, and a seminal influence on my career, I am absolutely thrilled to now have the opportunity to become a part of the official Hammer brand.’
