Arrow Books to create Hammer Films imprint

6th October 2010

A Random House Group imprint has entered into a new publishing partnership with iconic horror production company Hammer Films.

The agreement will see Arrow Books create a Hammer imprint to launch novelisations of both new horror films and productions from the company's backlist.

In addition, novellas will be published by established writers who do not necessarily work exclusively in the horror genre. Jeanette Winterson, award-winning author of The Stone Gods and Oranges are not the Only Fruit, will write the first of these, with a summer 2011 publication date scheduled.

Kate Elton, publisher at Arrow, commented: 'With the current interest in all things supernatural, the time is absolutely right for a Hammer imprint which will publish both into the heart of the commercial horror market and into the literary and thriller markets that border it.'

The publishing partnership comes as Hammer prepares a cinema release for its first film for more than 30 years - Matt Reeves' vampire horror-drama Let Me In.

Hammer Films' classic productions include The Curse of Frankenstein, The Brides of Dracula and The Mummy, featuring iconic actors such as Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.
