Dean Konntz has written so much over the years that I just have to place him up there with many others that I take my hat off to! Like Ann Rice and Stephen King. Now I what I just discovered is that Dean Koontz and TNT Tv is teaming up togther .
With Halloween around the corner, the news that TNT is developing Dean Koontz‘s five-book Frankenstein series comes at the perfect time. Deadline recently broke the story that Lionsgate Television and 1019 Entertainment will team up on this project, with father-son team James and Jake Hart tapped to write. The elder Hart is no stranger to the story, and has a small writing credit on the 1994 movie version of “Frankenstein,” which starred Robert De Niro and Kenneth Branagh
Koontz’s Frankenstein series puts a modern twist on Mary Shelly’s classic tale. Set in present-day New Orleans, Frankenstein follows the exploits of Victor Helios — once known as Frankenstein — as he harnesses modern technology to further his pursuits in creating the perfect race of people. His first creation, Deucalion, teams up with a pair of homicide detectives in an attempt to put a stop to Helios’ dangerous obsession. If you have not read Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein series, we highly recommend starting with the first book in the series, Prodigal Son.
Also I am hearing that this year hollywood should be coming out with something about the Odd Thomas Series !! You go Dean! I will be watching for sure!
Today’s Line up . . .
Haunted by the death of her husband and only child, Elinor Gentry’s recurring nightmares have left her exhausted. She’s crippled by debt, and only the remnants of her former life surround her, things she can’t bear to sell, and wouldn’t make much profit from if she did. Then, for no apparent reason, the nightmares transform into pleasant dreams. Dreams that lead her to take back control of her life.
A string of horrific and unexplained suicides–and an unnerving discovery about Elinor herself–lead her best friend to seek help from the one person who has seen all this before, and things begin to spiral out of control. Hazel Messinger knows that Elinor’s newly found wellbeing is not what it seems, and Hazel’s not about to let the demon inside remain there permanently
The thirteenth child conceived of miserable Irish exiles, Katie O’Toole dreams of a different life. Little does she know that someone far away is dreaming of her. In 1747, savages raid her family home, and seventeen-year-old Katie is taken captive. Syawa and Hector have been searching for her, guided by Syawa’s dreams. A young Holyman, Syawa believes Katie is the subject of his Vision: the Creature of Fire and Ice, destined to bring a great gift to his people. Despite her flaming hair and ice-blue eyes, Katie is certain he is mistaken, but faced with returning to her family, she agrees to join them. She soon discovers that in order to fulfill Syawa’s Vision, she must first become his Spirit Keeper, embarking on an epic journey that will change her life—and heart—forever.
When Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights is reunited with the pagans who commissioned it, a dark prophecy begins to unfold in East Salem, beginning with a savage double-murder by hellish creatures straight out of the painting itself. The lone survivor of the attack, a seventeen-year-old Brit, finds sanctuary at Tommy Gunderson’s home—and the place is soon surrounded by demons who seem to be biding their time…but for how long?
Tommy’s pond has been contaminated with Provivilan—an insidious drug that could transform New York City’s children into an army of violence-addicted murderers. But for an occult cabal in the upper echelons of Linz Pharmaceuticals, contaminating the water supply is just part of an ancient conspiracy against all of humankind.
As the clouds gather, Tommy and Dani realize they must infiltrate Linz and St. Adrian’s to stop the dissemination of Provivilan. Even then, it could take a tangible eruption of the battle between angels and demons to save humanity from the supernatural evils that have been summoned to East Salem.
