The Amulet of Elisabeth Bathory and other short stories by Kevin Eads In praise of Elisabeth Bathory: “….not the Edward Cullens’ of Twilight, but rather for a bygone era of beautiful stalkers of the night, the Brides of Dracula styled.
As he explained to me (the author) had a vision of being a screen writer I asked to see his work and much to my delight the humor and wit of his work was not the cliché happy endings where the hero wins, but rather, well, not to spoil some of the stories contained herein, but where the heroine is the vampire at times. After all, we love vampires. Why then, we reason, should they be the one to lose at the end of every tale? Furthermore, Kevin explained he wanted the stories kept in their original format, as screenplays the same as Shakespeare classics are written.
I love the originality of the scripts, a far cry from tired old stories we see in modern cinema. Instead, the author shares my love for twist endings and the old-time Hammer Film classic feel. So when it came time to release his first book, Dark Moon Press attempted to capture the feel of a cover that the old movie enthusiast would enjoy!
So take your time and settle into your favorite chair by the fire and enjoy Amulet of Elisabeth Bathory and other short stories. You’ll be glad you did.”
