Bastei Entertainment | John Sinclair: Horror Series Collections


JOHN SINCLAIR. A Horror Series Compilation. Episode 4-6.

Episode 4. A FEAST OF BLOOD: "She had no more than one or two days left to live. She could feel it. The agonizing pain in her throat, the blinding headaches ... there wasn't much time left. She had tried everything, absolutely everything, and the only thing that could save her now was a miracle ..."

When the Lady Laduga is sentenced to death in 1722, she makes a pact with a mysterious stranger ... a pact that will grant her eternal life. But there is a price to pay. Three-hundred years later, her ancient evil awakens and a small town in England is plunged into a blood-soaked nightmare.

Episode 5. DARK PHARAOH: Dr. Kenneth Hopkins, a renowned Egyptologist, wakes up from uneasy dreams to find himself engulfed in darkness. Within seconds, he realizes that he's in a coffin. He's been buried alive ... and a voice inside his head is laughing.

In his latest adventure, Detective Chief Inspector John Sinclair travels to Egypt to stop an unspeakable evil. When a British expedition uncovers the tomb of an ancient sorcerer, they unwittingly open a portal into another dimension ... and awaken a demonic force intent on destroying our world.

This case takes John Sinclair from the back alleys of London to the Egyptian desert. A heart-pounding race against time begins, and John faces an evil that is older than our world.

Episode 6. THE VAMPIRE GRAVEYARD: Dr. Boscombe and his team are about to make a historic discovery: Britain's only "vampire graveyard", an unmarked cemetery at the edge of a marsh in Yorkshire. It was here, 230 years ago, that the villagers buried the victims of the mysterious widow, Simona Grace. Boscombe has no idea of the terrors he is about to unleash ...

When the only surviving member of Boscombe's team is consigned to a madhouse in London, Detective Chief Inspector John Sinclair is sent to Yorkshire, to unveil the secrets of the "vampire graveyard". What he encounters in Yorkshire is no ordinary evil. It is an infection, an intelligent virus that is about to devour our world ...

"A hero so suave and dashing, he makes James Bond look like a grubby detective sergeant, a plot that reads like it came straight from the great vaults of Hammer, and enough action and derring do to keep even the most ardent pulp fan smiling with glee.[...] A tight, punchy read that heralds the start of a great new series of pulp horror. Highly recommended." Ginger Nuts of Horror.

"John Sinclair" is the relaunch of Europe's longest running horror series. Originally conceived in 1973 by Jason Dark and still going strong, the "John Sinclair" novellas are firmly rooted in the finest pulp traditions: true page turners with spine-tingling suspense, exquisite gore, and a dash of adventure.

For fans of the dark visions of Stephen King, Clive Barker and the "X-Files" and the fast-paced action and globe-trotting excitement of James Bond.
