Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Seventh Star Press gives us the scoop on the addition of award-winning horror author Michael West to growing list of writers., with the acquisition of the novel Cinema of Shadows, and two more titles that will all have a thematic connection with the town of Harmony, Indiana.

Cinema of Shadows welcomes readers to the Woodfield Movie Palace.

The night the Titanic sank, it opened for business…and its builder died in his chair. In the 1950s, there was a fire; a balcony full of people burned to death. And years later, when it became the scene of one of Harmony, Indiana’s most notorious murders, it closed for good. Abandoned, sealed, locked up tight…until the present day.

One momentous night, Professor Geoffrey Burke and his Parapsychology students go to the Woodfield in search of evidence, hoping to find irrefutable proof of a haunting. Instead, they discover that, in this theater, the terrors are not confined to the screen.

The first edition of the book will feature cover art and additional illustrations from acclaimed fantasy/horror artist Matthew Perry. Which I’m really excited about, Matthew Perry does some amazing work.

The projected release date window for Cinema of Shadows is late summer of 2011, with versions released in hardcover, trade paperback, and several eBook formats, covering owners of the Kindle, the iPad, the Nook, Sony eReaders, and other compatible electronic reading devices.

The second novel, Spook House, is being planned for a summer release in 2012, with a third novel to be released in 2013. Both titles will involve the town of Harmony, Indiana, as the location grows to become synonymous with terror in the literary world.

We here at WPR want to give Michael and Seventh Star Press a huge thumbs up for coming together, we can’t wait to have the crap scared out of us with these books.
