Hello, Dark Shadows Fan,
ShadowGram (SG), The Official Newsletter & News Source for Dark Shadows (DS), announces the following breaking news in this Online News Update "bulletin."


David (Quentin) appears as "Henry White" in INHALE, a suspense thriller in limited release 10-22. A desperate father seeking a new lung for his ill young daughter is plunged into the shady world of illegal trafficking in human organs. NY Times 10-21: "Filmed in a semi-documentary style, it fitfully aspires to moral seriousness. It wants to be accepted as an exposé of a criminal enterprise to which governments often turn a blind eye, and as a 'Babel'-like critique of entitled Americans abroad who think their money can buy anything."

Autographed Copies of Robert Cobert's 1991 DS TV Series - Music Soundtrack CD set

--- David Selby's new DS book "My Shadowed Past" premiered at the 2010 Fest. Publicity: "Peace, protests and Dark Shadows.... In MY SHADOWED PAST, actor-writer David Selby reflects on a pivotal time in his personal and professional life - a turbulent, vital period in the 1960s when America was experiencing profound social and political changes. In the midst of the turmoil and tension was a daily afternoon escape - an opportunity to become drawn into a Gothic world of fantasy, suspense and romance on the ABC-TV serial DARK SHADOWS. Selby joined the cast in 1968 as the mysterious Quentin Collins and now documents the ongoing devotion to DARK SHADOWS and its historical context." The book has 142 pages with a glossy cover and includes "over 100 never-before-published DS photos."
