Many agree that it was the quality of Hammer’s sets that distinguished them from their rivals as their ornate castle interiors with their bold exteriors gave the impression the films had much bigger budgets than they had. From The Quatermass Xperiment (1954) to To the Devil a Daughter (1975) we take a film by film look at the work of the art department including the mattes and models provided by the SPFX team that enhanced the sets and added to the art department’s vision.

Please note: Now he has retired Wayne hopes to be travelling a lot more and so will be away from his computer a lot more. At times of demand (launching a new book) and when he’s away, orders will therefore be slower in getting out. We will endeavour to post your books as soon as we can, but during these times it may take a few weeks for UK customers, so don’t panic. As airmail continues to be high for USA/outside europe, we still use only surface mail for these regions which takes around 6 weeks. On ordering you should receive an email from PayPal which is your receipt as we can’t always send a separate email to acknowledge orders. The web site email address goes straight to Wayne and we ask also for your patience if he is late replying to your queries when he is away from his computer.
‘Keeping the Memory Alive’
Peveril Publishing has been set up to bring you affordably priced books based on all aspects of ‘fantastic’ cinema (horror, sci fi and fantasy). These collector’s editions are sold from source to keep cover prices low and allow us to inject as much colour into them as possible, which is not possible with many other small publishing companies that have to give large cuts to retailers.
The company brings together two individuals that are long associated with quality publications:
An author and Norwich pathologist, he has had a lifelong love of fantastic films and has become a recognised expert on Hammer films writing 24 issues of his fanzine The House that Hammer Built and four acclaimed books, Hammer Films – the Bray Studios Years (Reynolds & Hearn) and Hammer Films – the Elstree Studios Years, Hammer Films – a Life in Pictures and Hammer Films – the Unsung Heroes for Tomahawk Press. He has also contributed to other magazines, books and documentaries, given lectures on Hammer Films and regularly runs guest Q&A sessions at the Manchester Festival of Fantastic Films. He also co-wrote the screenplay to the supernatural thriller Messages starring Jeff Fahey.
Steve has been a designer longer than he cares to remember and a movie fan even longer… He has worked closely with Wayne on several of his past books as well as other books including Zulu – With Some Guts Behind It, Boris Karloff – More Than A Monster, The Battle For Bond and many more. He has also been responsible for the design work on hundreds of DVD sleeves plus is involved in the pre-mastering of many DVD and Blu Ray titles. He also a partner in a collectable trading cards company – www.unstoppablecards.com. In his spare time he runs a Blu ray label and even tries to squeeze in watching the odd movie!
