Dead Leaves Now Available for Pre-Order from Boo Books
The latest title from author Andrew David Barker, Dead Leaves, is now available for pre-order prior to its mid-October release. Chronicling three friends' troubled journey to obtain a VHS copy of The Evil Dead in the height of the video nasty hysteria, the book perfectly captures the magic of the video horror era and the controversy that surrounded it.
Set in 1980s Derby, an unremarkable Midlands town, the story follows Scott Bradley and friends Mark and Paul as they drift through life after school, trying to find their own way. The only thing they truly are about are horror films – but as the police crack down on the genre they love, their quest to obtain the holy grail of movies becomes a life-changing experience for all of them.
Tom Sullivan, special effects wizard on the original The Evil Dead, said of Dead Leaves: 'I certainly paid my price for creating the gore and mayhem in the film and all I got was this book. Besides being a lively and engaging read, Andrew David Barker's Dead Leaves demonstrates we were successful in ruining at least one generation of young Britons' bright and eager minds.'
Alex Davis, Publisher at Boo Books, said: 'I've been blown away with the response to this title from fans of The Evil Dead – a community that I count myself a proud member of! Anyone who went through the video nasty era or has a passion for the movie will no doubt identify with the characters in this book and everything it brings them to experience.'
Dead Leaves is available to pre-order at £6.99 plus postage (see website for further details on UK and international postage). Pre-order copies will all be signed by the author and posted immediately upon release. For more information, or to order your copy, visit http://boobooks.net/bookshop/dead-leaves-pre-order
