Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.23.08] news book horror

Last we heard from Derek Gunn the Irish horror author was well on his way to becoming one of the busiest writers on the scene. His popular series, Vampire Apocalypse, was in feature film development with director Kevin Donovan (The Tuxedo) on board to direct, Descent into Chaos, the book's sequel, had just been released and a third part to the series was still on the way!

Now, word has come to us that Gunn has even sold an entirely new horror title to our favorite purveyors of PA/Horror fiction, Permuted Press, called "The Estuary." The novel sounds intriguing (if a little ambiguous) and looks to be a step in another direction for Gunn.

The Estuary is a fast-paced, horror adventure tale, about a desperate plan formulated in the darkest years of an evil empire, which now threatens to engulf the residents of a small community in Southern Ireland.

Sounds solid, but leaves me wanting to learn more about this "evil empire" and who the major players will be. Permuted Press has skedded the book for publication in 2009 so I suppose my questions will be answered soon enough. Until then stay tuned for more updates as they come.
