Doug Clegg's 'Attraction'

I love book trailers. Love the ingenuity of promoting the classic pastime of reading with the high-tech marketing glitz of video. From time to time, I'll be sharing one that catches my eye.

Here's the latest from author Douglas Clegg. While I'm not a huge fan of his fantasy works, I do enjoy his more straightforward horror stuff. The Attraction is a nifty little slasher story - its cinematic counterpart would place it in the sub-human slasher genre. Bunch of college kids on a road trip stop by one of those cheesy roadside tourist traps and end up stealing a little mummified corpse, tellingly called "The Flesh-Scaper." Good things do not ensue.

Book trailer is by Circle of Seven Productions.

You can pick up a copy of The Attraction at Dark Scribe Magazine's
virtual store.

Wow, so now even books have flashy "coming soon" promos.

Of course, there is nothing new under the sun ... I recall seeing television ads for books in the 70's; albeit not as gaudy.

I really love this book. It's a cool monster and I love how the trailer shows it in the glass case just like the book.
