Christopher Golden’s Snowblind Being Adapted as Limited TV Series

1 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Twelve years ago, more than a dozen people disappeared in a blizzard that besieged the small New England town of Coventry. An unknown horror lurked outside amidst the whipping winds and teeth-chattering temperatures, and now it’s about to make a comeback in Christopher Golden’s novel Snowblind. Published in January by St. Martin’s Press, the book has already been optioned for television.

Deadline reports that Universal Television and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) have acquired TV rights to Snowblind and plan on adapting it as a limited series. Goyer is set to oversee development and executive produce along with Golden and Pete Donaldson. A prolific writer in the horror genre whose credits include original Buffy the Vampire Slayer novels and the zombie story Soulless, Christopher Golden has another couple of novels in the adaptation stages: Joe Golem and the Drowning City, which he co-authored with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, »

Book Review: 'Alien: Out of the Shadows' by Tim Lebbon

12 February 2014 | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Fifty-seven years passed between the events of Ridley Scott's Alien and James Cameron's Aliens, and during that entire time, Ellen Ripley slept in stasis. At least, that's what we were told. Now along comes author Tim Lebbon to tell us that wasn't actually the case.

Alien: Out of the Shadows, the first in a barrage of Alien books coming this year from Titan Books (more on those in a minute), begins an all-new tale about what happened during those "lost" five decades and change. The book picks up some 37 years after the destruction of the Nostromo. The Marion is a mining ship much like the Nostromo, crewed by a rough-edged bunch of space jockeys in charge of a mining operation on planet LV178. It's a boring, repetitive job right up until the day the miners discover something other than trimonite below the planet's surface. When several of »

Five Books We're Dying to Read in 2014

28 January 2014 | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

2013 was a good year for reading in general and horror in particular, so our current set of 365 days has some big shoes to fill. Here are a handful of titles coming out this year that I think are going to help 2014 meet those expectations.

Alien: Out of the Shadows by Tim Lebbon

January 28, 2014 - Titan Books

Tim Lebbon has a deft hand when it comes to working in established properties, having written novelizations and original books for fan favorites including 30 Days of Night, Cabin in the Woods and the Hellboy and Star Wars universes. Now he's taking on one of my favorite franchises – the Alien films. Out of the Shadows is an original novel that revisits the character of Ellen Ripley, who was of course brought to vivid life in the film series by Sigourney Weaver. It's the start of a new trilogy, the events of which lead directly »

The Mad Butcher of Plainfield’s Chariot of Death

Adam Howe

Gibbons swigged from his hipflask, driving one-handed as he followed the caravan of carny vehicles barreling along the interstate toward tonight’s show. As the booze burned through him, he bared his teeth, glaring in the rearview at the tarp-shrouded shape of the car hooked to his truck.

The damned car was supposed to make his fortune. He’d sunk every last penny into buying it. 1960 should’ve been his year. He should’ve been sunning himself down in Florida by now; instead he was barely eking a living, working the »
