House of Dan Curtis

My good friend Jeff Thompson, horror author and Dark Shadows aficionado, has been quite busy lately. His second book within the past few months hit the stands this week. It is called “House of Dan Curtis: The Television Mysteries of the Dark Shadows Auteur.”

Jeff is quite a unique guy – he is an English Professor at Tennessee State University, a collector of horror and sci-fi memorabilia, a horror host fan, and a Dark Shadows expert. It is the latter that he has explored in this book, which is actually his second book on Dark Shadows creator Dan Curtis.

House of Dan Curtis provides an overview of Dan Curtis’ 40-year-long career, as well as an examination of 15 mysteries and crime dramas Curtis produced, co-wrote, and/or directed. It is chock full of photos and has a foreword by John Karlen, one of the stars of Dark Shadows and many other Curtis productions.

Both books, "House of Dan Curtis" and “The Television Horrors of Dan Curtis: Dark Shadows, The Night Stalker and Other Productions, 1966-2006” are available through Amazon, or, as a special offer, Jeff will sell either of his books directly at a much discounted rate of only $20 plus $5 shipping. Or, come to the Nashville Comic Con in September (September 25 – 26) and meet Jeff in person and pick up a copy for only $20.

You can contact Jeff directly at: jthompson@tnstate.edu.
