About the author:
Award-winning author Stephen D. Sullivan has been a Monster Kid all his life, and a professional one since 1980, when he joined the creative team for Dungeons & Dragons.

Since then, Steve has worked on lots of other cool properties, including CHILL, Tournament of Death, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horrors, Legend of the Five Rings, Speed Racer, Thunderbirds, and Iron Man, among others.

His recent projects include Daikaiju Attack (a free weekly giant monster serial), the ongoing Canoe Cops vs. the Mummy story (read in monthly chapters on the website of filmmaker Christopher R. Mihm), Steve's novelization of the classic horror film White Zombie, and his crazy double-adaptation of Manos: The Hands of Fate into two separate novels (one comedy, one horror).

Steve is currently hard at work on Frost Harrow, a modern Gothic-horror series, which he describes as "Dark Shadows meets Stephen King," and Cushing Horrors, a classic "monster rally" tale.

New Adaptation of the Cult Horror-Comedy Classic!

I've enjoyed reading this really fun version of my "family movie," and I know you will too." - Jackey Neyman Jones (Debbie from Manos)

"The worst movie ever made." - Entertainment Weekly

Mike, Margaret, their young daughter Debbie, and toy poodle Pepe drive into the West Texas countryside looking forward to a relaxing family vacation. Instead, they discover an evil cult of undead polygamists led by The Master and his half-human
servant, Torgo. Can the family make it out of the desert alive with both the cultists and the Hands of Fate against them?

Based on the "so-bad-it's-good" cult horror classic, Manos: The Hands of Fate is the first of two Manos novelizations by award-winning author Stephen D. Sullivan. In this laugh-a-minute adaptation, Sullivan has captured all the zaniness of the "classic" low-budget feature - including every word of the original dialogue. Fans of MST3K, RiffTrax, or bad movies in general are in for a real treat!

(Sullivan swears that the second Manos book -- due for fall-winter 2015 release -- will be a "serious horror" novel.)
