Random House UK will partner with Hammer Films to create the new Hammer imprint. The new imprint plans to publish six titles annually starting in the Spring 2011 season. The types of books will fall under the following categories: “novelizations of new front list film releases, novelizations of backlist classics – to bring them to a whole new market with a modern and sophisticated twist – and new novellas by established authors whose oeuvre does not necessarily encompass the horror genre.”
THE RESIDENT — Buy it here
Every year, three million single women in America move into an apartment for the first time. Few of them change the locks.
Juliet Devereau can’t believe her luck: after weeks of looking for a place to live, she’s found a beautiful, spacious apartment overlooking Brooklyn Bridge. It almost seems to good to be true.
It is… Over the weeks, a chilling sense of being watched stalks Juliet. Strange sounds wake her in the night, the mirror in the bathroom trembles, and doors she thought shut are open. Then the silhouette of a man standing in her living room makes her realise that she’s not alone in there. But what’s haunting her is far more terrifying than a malevolent spirit; it’s alive, strong and obsessed. Suddenly Juliet is caught up in a deadly game of cat and mouse, and there’s no guarantee that she’ll come out alive…
