Gregory Lamberson’s third novel, The Frenzy Way, is now available as a Medallion Press trade paperback in bookstores. The novel pits NYPD detectives against a vicious killer who may be a member of a secret species of werewolves living among us; Lamberson describes it as “The French Connection meets The Howling.”
Lamberson’s previous novel, Personal Demons, just won the IPPY Gold Medal for Horror at the Independent Publishers Book Awards ceremony held in New York City in conjunction with BookExpo America. Personal Demons has also been nominated for a Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Cover Design. That novel is the first volume in Lamberson’s “The Jake Helman Files” series, which continues with Desperate Souls, to be published as a trade paperback by Medallion Press in October.
Meanwhile, Lamberson’s new film Slime City Massacre, sequel to his 1988 cult horror film Slime City, just won two prizes at the PollyGrind Film Festival in Las Vegas: Biggest Baddest Mother of the PollyGrind (Best Film), and Best Actor for Kealan Patrick Burke. Slime City Massacre next screens at the Reel Renegades Film Festival at The Hidden Castle in Norman, Oklahoma on Saturday, June 5th, and at the Crypticon horror convention in Seattle, which runs June 18^th – 20^th .
Lamberon’s first mass market novel, Johnny Gruesome, also won the IPPY Gold Medal for Horror, and a limited edition comic book adaptation won Best Comic Book at the NYC Horror Film Festival. Johnny Gruesome and Lamberson’s instructional filmmaking book, Cheap Scares: Low Budget Horror Filmmakers Share Their Secrets, were both nominated for Bram Stoker Awards in the same year.
The author has completed his third Jake Helman novel, and is at work on the fourth. His website is: Gary Lamberson
