About the Book

HAMLET IN BALTIMORE is a horror about the 5 year old Edgar Poe and his two actor parents being murdered by a vampire. It is a wholly made up fantasy. In reality Poe's alcoholic father left the family when Poe was 1 1/2 years old, and his mother died of consumption when he was 2. Instead, this is a fiction about what formed E.A. Poe's life and work. The book is Part One of the planned A Heart Laid Bare series. Part Two-THE BLUE BOTTLE, about the author's strange relationship with his 13 year old bride Virginia, is scheduled for a later 2021 release.

About the Author

PAVEL CERNY's career started as that of a film director in his native Czechoslovakia in the magical city of Prague. After forced expulsion from the communist country, he moved to Los Angeles where he became a screenwriter and playwright. He became an internationally known stage director (USA, Germany, Austria) but it hasn't been till the Covid-19 pandemics of 2020 that he became energized again. During the first 10 months he wrote 4 screenplays and 2 books. The screenplays gathered many awards at major screenwriting competitions, including the European Cinematography Awards. Both of Pavel's books (one a vampire horror, the other a charming children's book bound to become a new Christmas classic) are coming out in the first months of 2021. Pavel is already working on parts two of each book.
