It also allows us to follow the careers of our favourite actors and film-makers with rolling links to them. The first 3 volumes have already been successfully launched. Still to come:

The House that Hammer Built (the Complete Carreras Years 1934-79) series

To celebrate my 25 years in publishing and dedicated to my dad, who I lost from face cancer in 2020, I am putting together my definitive work on Hammer. A 3 volume history of Hammer from 1934 to 1979. I’ll be taking a chronological look at all Hammer’s films (in production order) including all the early Exclusive pictures for the first time as well as Hammer’s many unfilmed projects. I’ll be amalgamating all my researches from previous books with all new research and return to the oral history approach, so we can hear many of the stories from the mouths of those who worked at Hammer – many sadly no longer with us. I’m really looking forward to putting them together and decided to call it after the magazine that started it all for me – The House that Hammer Built. Still in its infancy but expect the 3 volumes to be:

Vol 1:1934-56
Vol 2:1957-66
Vol 3: 1967-79
