Imprint - Meet Graham Masterton
|Date||Occurs 27/10/2017 - 27/10/2017|
Graham Masterton’s debut as a horror author began with The Manitou in 1976, a chilling tale of a Native American medicine man reborn in the present day to exact his revenge on the white man. It became an instant bestseller and was adapted for film starring Tony Curtis.
Since then Graham has published more than 35 horror novels, including Charnel House, Mirror, Family Portrait and The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Three of Graham’s stories were filmed for TV in Tony Scott’s horror series The Hunger, and The Secret Shih-Tan, starring Jason Scott Lee, was shortlisted for a Bram Stoker Award by the Horror Writers Association.
Altogether Graham has written more than a hundred novels ranging from thrillers (The Sweetman Curve, Ikon) to disaster novels (Plague, Famine) to historical sagas (Rich and Maiden Voyage - both appeared in the New York Times bestseller list).
Graham was born in Edinburgh in 1946 and now lives in Surrey. He has just finished writing a black thriller featuring Ireland’s only female detective superintendent, Katie Maguire, set in the Cork underworld.
