With the lament of the digital age in full effect it is unsurprising that the normal ink on paper approach to novels is also starting to fall to the more convenient “e-book” format. Today we received a press release for what looks to be the first huge horror title for the format titled “Jason Dark: Ghost Hunter”. Read on for the full skinny on this exciting and groundbreaking title from Thunder Peak Publishing!
“Thunder Peak Publishing, a division of international content developer G3 Studios, today announces a new face in the horror genre with the launch of “Jason Dark: Ghost Hunter©” character. Jason Dark, a fearless and resourceful ghost hunter, follows in the mold of Sherlock Holmes combined with Randall Garrett’s Lord D’Arcy. Written by Guido Henkel, the designer who brought Germany’s famed Das Schwarze Auge series to computer screens, this action-packed thrilling series is filled with enough mystery, drama and suspenseful action to transport you to the sinister, fog-shrouded streets of Victorian England.
“I’ve always been a fan of the classic horror films from Universal Studios and Hammer Films,” said Henkel. “I wanted Jason Dark to hearken back to those elegant thrillers, but also speak to our hi-tech generation, not only with his adventures but how fans can access them.”
Where the fog shrouds the streets of Victorian England, where the once ordinary becomes obscure, where evil causes the rational to dance on the precipice of anarchy… comes the “Geisterjäger.” Descended from an ancestral line of ghost hunters, Jason Dark is the Geisterjäger of his generation. Risking his own life, sanity, and soul, Dark faces all manner of terrors – vampires, were-creatures, demons, sometimes even the Devil himself – frequently standing as the sole gatekeeper between civilization and supernatural chaos!
The first adventure in the Jason Dark: Ghost Hunter series is entitled “Demon’s Night” and is available now. The story will be accessible for reading on internet browsers, including Microsoft Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, in your browser for free from the Jason Dark website, on this site, although alternative versions will be available also at a nominal cost. These will include versions for the Amazon Kindle and other mobile eReaders and devices, including cell phones, as well as a print version.
In “Demon’s Night,” a series of bizarre deaths leaves the victims unnaturally desiccated and decaying, sending Jason Dark into the dangerous world of the London dockyards in search of a supernatural murderer. But is the paranormal investigator prepared to duel a full-fledged demon on a Hell-bent mission to create chaos and catastrophe throughout the earth, a fiend determined to wreak more death and destruction than his even more ominous Master?
Subsequent adventures include Jason Dark #2 “Theater of Vampires,” where Jason Dark turns to an old friend for help when stage magic isn’t what it seems. Explore the shadows of the Victorian Theater with London’s most famous “Geisterjäger” as he confronts a horror beyond anything yet confronted. “Theater of Vampires” is a story of betrayal, discovery, and horror in the tradition of the Grand Guignol. The only admission price needed is your courage.
Your encounter with the extraordinary awaits! For more information about Jason Dark and his adventures, check out www.jasondarkseries.com.”
As a writer myself I’m not yet sure how to feel about the “e-book” phenomena, but I do know that this sounds like an intriguing series. If it’s anything like the recent “Victorian Undead” series, then it will definitely be worth a read.
