30 Days of Night … the sun goes down again

March 24th, 2009 • Posted in Book News |

30-daysI’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be writing an original novel set in the 30 Days of Night universe for Pocket Books.

Novelising the movie was a huge amount of fun, and the book did really well (popped up on the New York Times Bestseller list, no less!), so I’m really excited about returning to this world again.

The book doesn’t even have a title yet (still brainstorming ideas), but I’ll fill you in with more details as and when….

    Funny you should mentionthat; I just bought the novelisation! Looking forward to it

  2. Robert says:

    Awesome news, Tim!

  3. Shaun Hamilton says:

    Top draw news! Full and hearty congratulations

  4. Steve Volk says:

    Congrats, Tim. I loved the film. I also love the soundtrack which I’m playing right now! Try it – it will give you inspiration!

    Any chance of vampire penguins?

  5. Jeff Prettyman says:

    As the vampires themselves would say, “Kuk vash nakk”. Loosely translated it means “Congratulations, now let us feast on their still warm flesh.”

  6. Harry Shannon says:

    Cool beans, can’t wait!

  7. Steve Volk says:

    Vampires of course are resident in the Southern Hemisphere. So what about vampires go to Antarctica? You could call it “Beaks”. And someone could get attacked when they mistake one for a french waiter. God, I’m cooking on gas.

  8. Steve Volk says:

    Duh. That last post should read “Penguins of course…” That way in makes sense. Almost.

  9. Steve Volk says:

    In that last post, “in” should be “it”. Jesus!

  10. Geoff Guthrie says:

    Very cool, I liked the idea of 30 Days of Night, and I thoroughly enjoyed the novelization you did. Sound good!

  11. Tim Lebbon says:

    Thanks Geoff – this one will be a little different, but still lots of fun.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this! I just finished reading your novelization of 30 Days of Night and might I say, it is impressive! Absolutely love that you were able to take the depths of the characters to a whole new level. I would say to keep up the great work but it appears you would do so regardless. I am off to write a seven page research paper over your novelization and the film for 30 Days of Night for my gothic literature class!
    Wish me luck! You obviously have enough talent not to need it.
