Yay. My new series is out.
Nekromathias is my first series aimed at a younger audience. The libraries have it categorized at age 10+, but I’m not sure how this would translate internationally.
It is stock full of zombies, action and humor, all illustrated by the incredible Kent Overby Stück.
There are no plans at present to translate it, so for now you either just look at the pretty pictures or learn Danish.
Nekromathias is the tale of Mathias – a young boy of 13 years who come to realize that this world hides a big secret.
Zombies are real. And they are everywhere.
Teaming up with his grandpa he must now learn the tips and tricks of the trade as an undertaker. They must be ready to move out and confront the undead, but the world must never know.
The first three titles are out now with more to follow.
My new project is ready to go online.
Script: Michael Kamp
Illustrations: Tom Kristensen
Monster is the story of a young boy in a family with a big problem. I was hired to write the story by Hope Ung – a Danish organisation aimed at helping kids and young adults in troubled families – but the comic itself is international.
It’s been quiet here the past six months.
Translations have been slow since I have toiled away at my new Danish novel.
And now it is about to hit the markets.
“Samlerne” (The Collectors) will be released in november in Denmark, and while I have kept the international rights, there’s no plans for a coming translation. I have way too much work to do for the rest of the year.
So – the reviews are beginning to trickle in from the great beyond.
It’s always hard to get get proper reviews for anthologies, since usually it will be a general review.
General reviews are nice, but you want to read what they thought of *your* story.
Fortunately the first story-by-story review is out there now.
He is pleased with the anthology as a whole, and has this to say about my story:
Predators of Tomorrow, by Michael Kamp. Any story about vampires in space should be cheesy and ridiculous, but good writing, an excellent premise and a great protagonist make this a worthwhile read.
See the whole review HERE.
Get Blood Type HERE.
Yes, I am pleased.
For all of you – a little treat.
Two Christmas themed flash fictions with just a touch of dark.
They are set free on the internet and can be shared as anyone please.
Blood Type is now available on amazon.com.
The paperback version is scheduled for January, but grab an e-book while you wait.
Vampires. In space. What more could you possible wish for?
Go forth and indulge yourself in sci-fi bloodsuckers. 🙂
Available through AMAZON and remember: all profit goes to the The Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Also – the trailer just went live.
This weekend the largest literature convention in Denmark takes place in the Bella Center. Any guests entering the main hall are greeted with this huge image of me.
Ye gods – I must be 30 feet tall. Can the convention even contain such a huge beast or will all the tiny people freak me out until I rampage through the building like King Kong? 😛
I’m spending saturday signing my newest release to (hopefully) a never ending stream of happy readers.
Or I might sit there all alone. We’ll see.
My brand new Danish horror novel Hospitalet (The Hospital) has received a fair amount of praise so far.
The latest came from the Danish Center of Libraries, which is basically the review any library will use to determine whether they want to buy it or not.
“A gruesome story tapping into our fears of hospitals and death, the style is comparable to a fine mix of Koontz, King and Dennis Jürgensen.
Kamp is delivering a well-written occult horror story which will no doubt keep several readers sleepless.”
Praise indeed. 🙂
(Dennis Jürgensen is the most well known Danish author of YA horror.)
There are currently no plans for a translation.
