MA – The Fall Signing

GUILLERMO DEL TORO and CHUCK HOGAN discuss The Fall: Book Two of the Strain Trilogy on Sept 23rd.

Harvard Book Store is excited to welcome acclaimed director GUILLERMO DEL TORO and award-winning thriller writer CHUCK HOGAN as they discuss The Fall, the second installment in their Strain Trilogy. The pair will be interviewed by the Brattle Theatre′s own creative director, Ned Hinkle.

The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading across the country and soon, the world. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather, head of the CDC′s team and one of a small group who have banded together to fight the bloodthirsty monsters that roam the streets, finally manages to identify the parasite that causes the infection. But it may be too late.

Ignited by the Master′s horrific plan, a war erupts between Old and New World Vampires, each side vying for control of the planet. As the virus continues to plague the land, humans find themselves caught in the middle of the conflict.

At the same time, the battle finds its way inside Eph′s own home: his ex-wife, Kelly, who was turned by the Master, has her sights fixed on Zack, Eph′s son.

With the future of the world in the balance, Eph and his team of fighters must use all their skills and Holocaust survivor and former professor Abraham Setrakian′s intimate knowledge of the enemy to combat a terror whose ultimate plan is more terrible than the humans at first imagined—a fate worse than annihilation.

UK – The Fall Signing

Forbidden Planet regrets to announce that Guillermo Del Toro has had to cancel his visit to the UK and his appearance with us will not go ahead on 6th October.

Both Forbidden Planet and Harper Collins are doing everything possible to ensure that pre-orders made through the Forbidden Planet website for signed stock will be fulfilled.

We apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause. We will update our web page with more information as we have it.

Guillermo del Toro signs his new novel The Fall at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Wednesday 6th October 6 – 7pm.

In this fantastic sequel to The Strain, humans have been displaced at the top of the food chain, and now understand what it is to be not the consumer, but the consumed. Ephraim Goodweather, director of the New York office of the Centers for Disease control, is one of the few humans who understands what is really happening. Vampires have arrived in New York City, and their condition is contagious. If they cannot be contained, the entire world is at risk of infection. As the Biblical origins of the Ancient ones are gradually revealed, Eph learns that there is a greater, more terrible plan in store for the human race – worse even than annihilation…

Guillermo del Toro came to prominence with cult horror movies such as Chronos and The Devil’s Backbone and made his Hollywood directorial debut with the classic Blade II.  Rapidly followed by the box office and critical hit Hellboy and the Oscar-winning Pan’s Labyrinth, del Toro has established himself as one of the leading directors in the genre.

Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for signing events, including: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Terry Gilliam, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Mark Millar, Brian Froud and Stephen King.

Guillermo del Toro to Announce Next Film at SDCC 2010

With the recent news that Director Guillermo del Toro has stepped away from The Hobbit, the prequel to The Lord of the Rings, everyone has been wondering what he will be up to next. Well, according to his statement on Del Toro Films, Comic-Con International: San Diego is where we will get an answer:

Van Helsing (writing and producing) is still in talks and not quite certain. Even then, I would like to share my plans only at COMICON. I am taking it slowly and marking very, very carefully the calendar of projects that I will be involved as producer, writer, etc I will not announce the project I intend to direct until then. I am very happy to say that all the projects and partnerships being considered are both quite surprising and, I hope, powerful. Much as I want, I cannot say much more at this time but I anxiously await to share these with you. I will be shopping on the floor in San Diego for several days. See you there!!

Date(s): June 1, 2009

Description: Get the book and meet Guillermo Del Toro.

Line up starts Monday, June 1st. The line will be allowed into the store at 11:59PM Book goes on sale 2 minutes later Tuesday, June 2nd 12:01AM

The visionary creator of the Academy Award-winning Pan’s Labyrinth and a Hammett Award-winning author bring their imaginations to this bold, epic novel about a horrifying battle between man and vampire that threatens all humanity. It is the first installment in a thrilling trilogy and an extraordinary international publishing event.

The Strain

They have always been here. Vampires. In secret and in darkness. Waiting. Now their time has come.

In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country. In two months, the world.

A Boeing 777 arrives at JFK and is on its way across the tarmac, when it suddenly stops dead. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet. Crews on the ground are lost for answers, but an alert goes out to the CDC. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of their Canary project, a rapid-response team that investigates biological threats, gets the call and boards the plane. What he finds makes his blood run cold.

In a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, a former professor and survivor of the Holocaust named Abraham Setrakian knows something is happening. And he knows the time has come, that a war is brewing . . .
