The 440 page paperback edition of HORROR 201: THE SILVER SCREAM is finally available. And the two eBook editions will be on a Kindle Countdown starting today. You’ll be able to pick up the eBooks at 99c each.

“Horror 201: The Silver Scream will be seen as a landmark, the ultimate practical guide to horror filmmaking that will hopefully create and arm an entire generation of horror screenwriters and aspiring directors.” – Aaron Sterns, Wolf Creek

Horror: 201: The Silver Scream - The definitive guide to filmmaking and filmmakers by the best in the field.

Horror 201: The Silver Scream, the follow-up to the Bram Stoker Award nominated Horror 101: The Way Forward, delves into the minds of filmmakers to see what it takes to produce great horror films, from the writing and funding process, to directing, producing, and writing tie-ins.

Romero, Ray Bradbury, Ed Naha, Patrick Lussier, Stephen Volk, Nancy Holder, Ramsey Campbell, Tom Holland, John Shirley, Jeffrey Reddick, William Stout, and John Russo want to share their expertise with you through informative, practical, career-building advice.

 “Being a part of Horror 201: The Silver Scream is almost as thrilling as having had my novels turned into feature films. After all, it's not everyday one shares a TOC with George Romero, Wes Craven, and Mick Garris! This is a must have book for all writers looking to break into filmmaking.” – Michael Laimo

“As an in-depth look into what it takes to produce great horror films, we can think of no better resource on the market!” – Dave Jeffery & James Hart (Award winning film makers from Venomous Little Man Productions)

“With essays and interviews from the likes of John Carpenter, Richard Chizmar, Dan Curtis, Harry Shannon, Edward Lee and the late great Wes Craven, HORROR 201: THE SILVER SCREAM serves up prime cuts of fresh meat and raw broken bone for the palate of the discerning horror fiction and flick aficionado.” – Steve Vernon (author of Tatterdemon)

“Following the big success of Bram Stoker Award nominated HORROR 101: THE WAY FORWARD, Crystal Lake Publishing is back again with HORROR 201: THE SILVER SCREAM, making the transition from fiction to film. As with the former title in the series, HORROR 201: THE SILVER SCREAM is jammed packed with entertaining, interesting, and useful material for would-be horror filmmakers and insatiable movie geeks who just have to know about everything. The amazing interviews with Wes Craven, George A. Romero, and John Carpenter alone are worth the price of the book. Horror fans, whether film or fiction, need this book – and really anyone interested in movies period. Recommended!” – Aaron J. French, Editor-in-Chief of Dark Discoveries

“No one teaches horror. As a student of terror, realizing just how useful it is in teaching how society works and is influenced, that is a shame. Horror 201 opens the door again, but be careful... you don't know what lurks on the other side. The truth is scary.” – David C. Hayes

“This book is just perfect for the future screenplay writer, film director, and anybody who loves a good horror movie, and wants a chance to get behind the scenes and into the minds of those who bring us that chill factor! This masterpiece has essays, interviews, and everything you could need to learn more about the craft.” – Linzi Osburn

All the best for 2016,
