EXCLUSIVE! GUILLERMO DEL TORO TALKS ABOUT THE THIRD BOOK IN “THE STRAIN” TRILOGY

Posted in Books, Gore, Interviews, News, Supernatural, Vampires with tags , , , , on August 14, 2011 by darklordbunnykins

 

The DLB had the privilege today of interviewing Guillermo Del Toro, the man behind such beloved genre properties as Mimic, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy and the upcoming big screen version of the 1973 TV movie Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, out August 26. We asked Mr. Del Toro about his and co-writer Chuck Hogan’s upcoming book, The Night Eternal, the final installment in the vampire trilogy started with The Strain and The Fall.

 

The final installment of The Strain trilogy, The Night Eternal, comes out in October. Without giving away too much, what can you tell us about Eph Goodweather and The Master?

We just finished the corrections to the first galleys two days ago; literally two days ago in the morning I was sending my last corrections. And it’s the darkest of the three books. At the same time it has some of the most mythical origins of the creatures. You explain where The Master comes from, you explain where all vampires come from, and it goes back to ancient times. And so you have a chapter or two in ancient times, you have a chapter in ancient Rome. And I promised in the first book, when people interviewed me about the trilogy, I said you’re going to see characters you like do things you don’t like and characters you don’t like do things you like, and I think we delivered in the third book. Not everyone ends well! (laughs) In the second book we killed one of the dearest characters, which was Setrakian, and I think the body count in the third one is pretty high.

 

The Night Eternal is available Oct. 25 through Harper Collins.
