About the Book:
WELCOME TO LEPPINGTON
Not far from the coastal town of Whitby is Leppington, nestling in the purple hills of the North Yorkshire Moors. Quiet, unassuming, a forgotten backwater – yet beneath Leppington's streets terrifying creatures stir. They are driven by ancient passion that has become obsession. They are united in their burning hunger. They share an unending craving. They are Nosferatu. And they have the power to drain your will to resist. To drain it so utterly that you will cheerfully, gladly, eagerly surrender yourself to their sharp, brutal teeth.
AND IN LEPPINGTON DEATH ISN'T ALWAYS FOREVER...
Simon Clark lives in Doncaster, England with his family. When his first novel, Nailed by the Heart, made it through the slush pile in 1994 he banked the advance and embarked upon his dream of becoming a full-time writer. His subsequent novels include Blood Crazy, Darkness Demands, Death's Dominion and The Night of the Triffids, which continues the story of Wyndham's classic The Day of the Triffids. His revival of the wickedly ambulatory Triffid plants won the British Fantasy Society's August Derleth Award for best novel. He also created and co-presented "Winter Chills" for the BBC TV. His latest book from Severn House is The Midnight Man, a story of ghosts, madness and murder that features Vincent Van Gogh during one of the most turbulent periods of his life in 1888. Simon also experiments in short film, one of which, "Dear Simon, Where Do You Get Your Ideas From?" has been featured in the UK's Channel 4 ShortDoc series, and earned the accolade "the ultimate in TV democracy."
