Hammer Films Book Line?

In a time of shrinking publishing markets, there is about to be a new face in the market. According to Variety, the legendary Hammer Films has plans to publish books based on its movie properties. The article doesn’t say whether these will all be movie tie-ins or not, but I wish them success, since at the very least it would provide a market for horror writers to make a living. A hat tip to Bloody Good Horror for the link.

The most surprising thing in the article is that Hammer currently has 15 films in production, a huge number from a studio that hasn’t had a theatrical release since the 1970s, as far as I know.

I knew at one point Lesbian Vampire Killers was supposed to be a Hammer release, but they backed out. I'd like to see them make a comeback, but it seems they've been talking about it for 20 years.
