Jack Yeovil is a pseudonym for popular nevelist Kim Newman. The Genevieve books were first published by Games Workshop in the late 1980s and quickly gained a cult reputation amongst Warhammer and fantasy fane alike. Now all four novels are available in a superb value collected volume featuring the novels Drachenfels, Genevieve Undead, Beasts in Velvet and Silver Nails.
Besides his contributions to the Games Workshop Warhammer and Dark Future series, the seldom-seen Jack Yeovil is the author of a single novel, Orgy of the Blood Parasites, and used to fill in occasionally as a film reviewer for Empire and the NME. Kim Newman seems to have Jack under control at the moment, but the stubborn beast flesh occasionally comes creeping back.
