Vampire Sharkz!

I really enjoyed reading Simon Clark's novel London Under Midnight (available now from Severn House), a splendidly atmospheric horror without the usual Count Dracula cliches or tiresome gross-out elements.

The author has produced a fascinating short film, Secret Realms, Haunted Places, which looks at the locales and settings (from Whitby to London) that have influenced Clark's genre fiction.

Apart from filmed-interviews, I think this might be the first time any British writer has made a 'promo' video of this sort.

Europe really is a better setting for horror than America. We don't have as many big stone buildings where people were beheaded.

Although, we may be catching up.

It's slowly catching on... trailers for books.
