I am co-authoring a book, that is a spin-off of my Television Crossover Universe blog.

The book will be very much in the style of the blog, but it will encompass only horror, or crossovers connected to horror.  It will go beyond the blog in that it will include horror from literature as well.

This will be a must have (I hope) for the horror geek.  The book will encompass many types of horror, from the classic literary tales of Lovecraft, Wells, Stoker, and Shelley, to the classic Universal and Hammer Horror films, to the good old Romero zombie flicks, to modern slasher tales and books from folks like Stephen King.  Even horror related TV shows will be included.  And that’s just the surface.

The book will prove how these stories and characters all co-exist in one very scary shared reality.

I plan to release a series of TVCU related books.  I have started with horror because last summer I took a poll of TVCU fans and this was the most popular one to start with.  Future ones will cover cartoons, sci-fi, and sitcoms.

I’m very excited about the project, and hope that the book will be ready by end of 2013.
