Grand Haven, MI (PRWEB) July 7, 2005
Brilliance Audio, Inc. announced today that the company has acquired audio rights to "Creepers" (Hardcover, CDS Books, September 6, 2005) the new dark-suspense thriller by New York Times best-selling author David Morrell, and is relaunching five of his titles which were originally published in the mid-80s and early 90s.
ÂWeÂre delighted to have David Morrell back on the Brilliance list,Â said Associate Publisher Eileen Hutton, Âand weÂre celebrating by digitally-remastering the five Morrell titles that we originally published two decades ago. Many of these are full-cast recordings, and they really are wonderful productions. I canÂt wait to introduce them to a whole new generation of listeners.Â
"Creepers" will go on sale everywhere September 6th 2005, simultaneous with the CDS Books hardcover release. The audio will feature a special afterword to the book titled "Creepers: An Obsession With the Past," read by the author.
The title of MorrellÂs new book "Creepers" refers to the slang term for urban explorersÂhistory and architecture enthusiasts who share a passion for exploring abandoned buildings and their dying secrets. The Internet reveals hundreds of thousands of urban-explorer contacts throughout the world. But for every group that decides to publicize itself, there are many who donÂt Â because urban exploration is illegal and so unsafe it can be deadly.
"Creepers" takes place on a cold October night, when five creepers gather in a run-down motel on the Jersey shore and prepare to break into The Paragon Hotel. Built during the glory days of Asbury Park by a reclusive millionaire, the once-magnificent structure is now boarded up and slated for demolition. But soon after they enter the rat-infested tunnel leading to the hotel, they find more than they bargained for. Danger, fear, and death await the creepers in a place ravaged by time and redolent of evil.
The five titles by Morrell which are being remastered and re-published include "The Brotherhood of the Rose" (1985) on sale in October 2005; "The Fraternity of the Stone" (1985) on sale in December 2005; "The League of Night and Fog" (1988) on sale in May 2006; "The Fifth Profession" (1990) on sale in July 2006; and "The Covenant of the Flame" (1991) on sale in September 2006.
