Dear all,

The first book of the much-missed Professor Peter Hutchings, Hammer and Beyond: The British Horror Film (1993), has just been republished by Manchester University Press. The new edition includes a new introduction (by me), some new images, three previously published essays by Peter presented here to plug some of the gaps left by the first edition, and an afterword by European horror scholar (and friend to Peter), Russ Hunter. Grab it here:

To celebrate, we’re launching the book online on Wednesday 29 September 7.00-8.30pm BST, via Zoom, with thanks to the BAFTSS Horror SIG. There’ll be a panel discussion chaired by Kate Egan (Northumbria), featuring me, Alison Peirse (Leeds), Adam Lowenstein (Pittsburgh), Leon Hunt (Brunel) and Russ Hunter (Northumbria). We’ll also been unveiling a discount code entitling everybody to 40% off the cover price when placing an order via the MUP website (reduces the price to around £12).

To sign up for the event please register, for free, here:<>.

Peter was much loved, so it would be great to “see” as many of his friends and colleagues present at the event, to celebrate the new edition, the man, and his legacy.

Thanks all – and best wishes,
