Sam Stone holds an MA in Creative Writing and is a noted public speaker and lecturer.It has been announced that award-winning author Sam Stone, writer of The Vampire Gene book series (published by The House of Murky Depths), will see the launch of a brand new novella, entitled Zombies at Tiffany?s, in September 2012. The tale will be released by Telos Publishing.
Speaking of the project, Stone says, "It?s great to be back working with Telos again after the superb job they did with my horror collection Zombies in New York and Other Bloody Jottings last year. The new novella is riffing on the famous Audrey Hepburn/Blake Edwards film and the novella by Truman Capote, but it?s not the same as either. I enjoy playing with the genres, and this time we have a steampunk Victorian adventure. With zombies. In the famous Tiffany?s store in New York. It?s a lot of fun, and I even have a Jewish zombie wandering around who can only eat Kosher brains ? that?s a nod to the character of Shagal the Inn Keeper, brilliantly played by Alfie Bass in the Polanski film The Fearless Vampire Killers."
The fifth instalment in The Vampire Gene, Silent Sand, is also due to be released end of September.
"Sam Stone?s first novel, Killing Kiss, won the silver award for Best Horror Novel in ForeWord Magazine?s Book of the Year competition, and her subsequent novels and short stories have gained her much acclaim, including winning the British Fantasy Award."
