Sadly, there are too few examples of blaxploitation and horror colliding, which is why genre fans should be excited about the release of BROTHER BLOOD, a 1969 novel from author/filmmaker Donald F. Glut (DINOSAUR VALLEY GIRLS, THE MUMMY’S KISS, BLOOD SCARAB, etc.) that has previously gone unpublished in the United States.
Available now, BROTHER BLOOD is the first book from Bill Cunningham’s Pulp 2.0 Press. It revolves around Preston Duval, a sinister vampire stalking the streets of Los Angeles, building a bloodsucking battalion to take over the city. Speaking to Fango, Cunningham says, “Don wrote it originally in 1969 and it was published in a very edited version in German, in a magazine called HORROR around 1971. It had never seen print here in the U.S. or in English. He later decided that he was going to revise it and did. I had met Don had been talking with him about the idea of bringing back some classic pulp material in paperbacks, all those good trashy reads that we loved when we were kids and bring them out in new editions because they were really hard to find online. He mentioned BROTHER BLOOD and a couple of other things and when he pitched it to me, I said, ‘OK, yep. That’ll be our first book.’ ”
BROTHER BLOOD is being published and distributed worldwide through Createspace’s print-on-demand service and Amazon.com. There will be soon digital editions available for Kindle and the like as well. Each print edition, however, will feature a good deal of extras containing behind-the-scenes information, articles, photo essays and other exclusive entertainment.
This Saturday, March 20 at 2 p.m. Glut will be appearing in person at Burbank, California’s Dark Delicacies (4213 West Burbank) to sign copies of BROTHER BLOOD. Glut and Cunningham will also be on hand to announce their next wave of exciting titles. Cunningham gave Fango an exclusive insight into what’s next for Pulp 2.0 Press, so check back here on Saturday for what monstrously pulpy goodness you can look forward to in 2010.
