Hammer will be branching out from film production into book publishing with two novels set for release on March 10th:

"Francis Cottam has penned the novelisation of The Resident, the new Hammer thriller starring Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Christopher Lee. The cover features distinctive photographic artwork based on the UK advertising.

Hammer's classic catalogue is also represented, with a brand new edition of the source novel by Peter Curtis (aka Norah Lofts) for The Witches, the 1966 folk horror starring Joan Fontaine and scripted by Hammer regular Nigel Kneale. Curtis' novel was first published in 1960 as The Devil's Own. The Hammer edition is prefaced with a new foreword by The Witches director Cyril Frankel."
