Has anyone seen the huge posters for ‘Hell Train’ on the tube? If so, can they photograph one? For all my tubular travels I seem to keep missing them!
The book is available on Kindle for under a fiver – I’m just saying is all.
Already read it twice! I loved it.
Funny that, how can you miss it? Suppose you have your head in a book LOL.
I have to say I enjoyed Hell Train and I am glad I did not read the reviews on Amazon’s website until I was going to post one. If I had I may have thought twice ordering the book. Some are not too favourable it has to be said. I do not agree and found it a Riot. Well Done Mr Fowler on another top Book. Err- wouldn’t have enjoyed it half as much in digital format BTW. Love the art work.
An utterly insane book and an obviously affectionate tribute to Hammer Horror and the cinema of horror, Chris. A bit too much splatterpunk gore for my tastes, but I read every word. Some of it was great campy fun and had me laughing at the utter outrageousness of it all. Especially the sequence with Isabel, the bug guy, and the beetle on the loose. (I still can’t get over that image of oysters in ravioli!) But what happened with the proofing? “Entomologist” was replaced with “etymologist” twice within the span of two pages making for a very funny reading of that particular chapter. I have a review planned for my blog and will notify you when it’s posted.
Sorry about ‘Entomologist’ – the book was proofed at astounding speed and was insanely complex, given the interactions of all the characters. Much trickier than a Bryant & May! We’ll correct for the next print.
Top Draw Oh sorry Top shelf HA HA. I loved every word. Quite funny too just like those old Hammer films.
I bought Hell Train at DreamHaven Books in Minneapolis last week, read it this week, thoroughly enjoyed it. Creepy and funny and creepy, and it wonderfully brought to life the attitude of many of the best Hammer films I’ve seen. A very visual novel, something I always enjoy, and only rarely encounter. Good book!
