New #Halloween #Horror Read: Manos, The Hands of Fate

 Author Stephen D. Sullivan  has a knack for writing novelizations of classic and macabre horror films. In 2013, he novelized and did a revised, original script based on the 1930s Bela Lugosi film, White Zombie.

 His latest offering is a new look at the classic, low-budget horror - comedy film, Manos, The Hands of Fate.  (The film is supposedly being re-released soon on DVD).

NOW OUT! And on sale this weekend.... yes it's a fascinatingly odd, strange little story based on the odd, strange little film... 

“The worst movie ever made.” - Entertainment Weekly

New Adaptation of the Cult Horror-Comedy Classic!
Mike, Margaret, their young daughter Debbie, and toy poodle Pepe drive into the West Texas countryside looking forward to a relaxing family vacation.  Instead, they discover an evil cult of undead polygamists led by The Master and his half-human servant, Torgo.  Can the family make it out of the desert alive with both the cultists and the Hands of Fate against them?

Based on the “so-bad-it’s-good” cult horror classic, Manos: The Hands of Fate is the first of two novelizations by award-winning author Stephen D. Sullivan.  In this laugh-a-minute edition, Sullivan has captured all the zaniness of the “classic” low-budget feature -- including all of the original dialog.  Fans of MST3K, RiffTrax, or bad movies in general are in for a real treat!

(Sullivan swears that the second book -- due for fall 2015 release -- will be a “serious horror” novel.)
