Just Announced! Brand New Signed Limited Edition Rolling At The Printer!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report that Whispered Echoes by Paul F. Olson, a brand new Signed Limited Edition hardcover, has been secretly rolling at the printer and will ship later this month!

About the Book:
Whispered EchoesAn ancient voice speaks from the depths of a long-forgotten cave…

As a violent storm rages overhead, the scratching sounds begin in the cellar below…

A man inherits the family talent, but what price does that legacy demand…?

A return to the family homestead brings overwhelming memories, but the darkest memory of all still waits in the ravine out back…

An unassuming tourist quietly strolls through town, leaving devastation in his wake…

A late-night call from an abandoned camp brings a frightened cop face-to-face with his darkest fears…

A wild joyride ends with a surprise reunion and an encounter with the impossible…

A man searches for answers at an abandoned lighthouse and uncovers an unspeakable past…

Listen closely. You can hear them. The whispered echoes of your darkest fears. In this stunning new collection, Paul F. Olson delves into the quiet heart of terror. Featuring eleven long out-of-print tales from the ’80s and ’90s, and the debut of “Bloodybones,” a brand new novella of loss, longing, and chilling horror.

About the Book:
The Book of Baby NamesSandra picked up the dull, saddle-stitched book. The child on the cover laughed, a mischievous gleam in her eyes. Water stains on the front cover blurred the outline of some of the child’s teeth, making a few look sharp, like an animal’s. But the girl laughed, so everything was okay. Sandra didn’t realize The Book of Baby Names was a work of fiction. And that the stories inside were horrifying….

This mini-collection from Bram Stoker Award-winner Norman Prentiss contains six tales about sinister or endangered children. Features two never-before-published stories, “The Baby Truck” and “The Well-Adjusted Child,” along with a new Foreword/Afterword that places all the tales in an additional disturbing context.

Last Train from Perdition by Robert McCammon!

Last Train from Perdition
by Robert McCammon
Signed, Slipcased, and Numbered Limited Edition With A Very Low Print Run!

Beautiful Trade Hardcover Edition Also Available!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report we’ll be getting a few copies of Last Train from Perdition by Robert McCammon from Subterranean Press, but we don’t expect our copies to last long, especially considering the TINY print run for the signed and numbered and slipcased Limited Edition!

Last Train from Perdition (Book 2 in the I Travel by Night series!)
by Robert McCammon

Last TrainIn I Travel by Night, master of horror Robert McCammon introduced the tortured and instantly unforgettable vampire adventurer Trevor Lawson—All Matters Handled—as he searched for his maker, LaRouge, in hope of becoming human once more. It wove a tale about the terrors of the Dark Society, featuring the gothic sensibilities of old New Orleans, and the unforgiving violence of the untamed frontier of 1886. Now McCammon returns to Lawson’s gripping journey and sends him West, in the chilling sequel novella Last Train from Perdition.

Ever on the hunt for LaRouge, Lawson still travels by night, but no longer alone. Crack-shot, whip-smart Ann has become his companion, on her own search for her vampire-taken father and sister. Lawson has been summoned from New Orleans and the Hotel Sanctuaire to Omaha by a wealthy man who needs his son retrieved from a band of outlaws. Lawson and Ann agree to take the case and travel to the town of Perdition where they find their prey–but things get complicated fast when a saloon shootout leaves an innocent girl badly injured.

On a night train from Perdition to Helena to find medical help, it soon becomes clear that Lawson and Ann’s enemies may also be looking to prey upon them. As they struggle against those forces of darkness with a trainload of their most unlikely allies yet, Lawson also wages battle with the darkness LaRouge left within him. This latest installment in Trevor Lawson’s battle for redemption finds bestselling McCammon at his thrilling best.

Dominoes in Time by Matthew Warner New Reviews and A Video Clip!

Dominoes in Time
by Matthew Warner

New Reviews and A Video Clip!

Hi Folks!

Matthew Warner’s new story collection Dominoes in Time is receiving positive attention from reviewers, and he’s also shared a video clip of a recent reading/performance of a story from the book, “And That’s When the Bathroom Exploded,” which you can watch on YouTube right now.

Check out what reviewers are saying and then purchase a copy of the eBook at one of our retailer partners through the links below:

Dominoes in Time“Matthew Warner’s collection, Dominoes in Time, not only shows tremendous range and skill, it’s like the best of Stephen King: ordinary characters (albeit unique in their own way) demand our sympathy and interest while, at the same time, they find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Warner’s imagination is vast, and these stories leap off the page, staying with the reader in mind and heart. A highly recommended group of tales by a virtuoso writer.”
— Lisa Mannetti, three-time nominee and winner of the Bram Stoker Award, author of Deathwatch and The Box Jumper

“Although he’s an accomplished novelist and has written screenplays he really shines as a short story writer… this is very much worth your time and money.”
— Jim Morazzini, Beneath the Underground

“18 pivotal experiences light up the landscape for a delightfully eclectic cast of characters in Warner’s new collection of short stories. … With no attempts to cater to the politically correct or even polite, the story’s gritty language is part of this author’s hallmark style.”
— Lisa Rochford, News Leader

Dominoes in Time is a fantastic collection, and proves that the author should be front and center in dark fiction.”
— Sheri White, The Horror Review

Dominoes in Time showcases Warner’s ability to pen authentic paranoia from many different angles and his blending of the macabre with some finely placed humor makes this collection sing. At times reminiscent of classic Twilight Zone episodes, Warner’s stories are engaging and more often than not will take you places you didn’t see coming.”
— Nick Cato, The Horror Fiction Review

“Each story in Dominoes in Time is a dark gem — cold, sharp, and filled with sinister wonder.”
— Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh

Rambo: First Blood II by David Morrell: SIGNED LIMITED EDITION!

Rambo: First Blood II
by David Morrell

Signed Limited Edition With A Very Low Print Run!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report we’ll be getting a few copies of the special signed Limited Edition hardcover of Rambo: First Blood Part II by David Morrell from Gauntlet Press and Borderlands Press, but given the impact the character of Rambo has had on literature and film, we don’t expect our copies to last long!

Rambo: First Blood II
by David Morrell

First Blood 2Publisher: Gauntlet Press in collaboration with Borderlands Press

About the Book:
Three years after David Morrell’s ground-breaking novel First Blood became an equally ground-breaking film, 1985’s Rambo (First Blood Part II) established Rambo as an international thriller icon, breaking box-office records and adding Rambo’s name to the Oxford English dictionary.

Morrell’s novelization for Rambo (First Blood Part II) made a difference also. When the film’s producers asked him to write a book based on the script, he initially declined. After all, he hadn’t been involved in the film’s development, and at the time, most novelizations needed to adhere so strictly to the script that they were almost a form of automatic writing.

But then the producers gave Morrell permission to write whatever he wanted, provided that the novelization had a recognizable relationship to the film. Freed to be inventive and to make Rambo closer to the character as Morrell had portrayed him in First Blood, Morrell prepared a novelization that broke all the rules: one-third Morrell, one-third shooting script, and one-third material from James Cameron’s unused script for the film. (Yes, that James Cameron, before Aliens and Terminator 2.)

Continuing to break the rules, Morrell’s novelization was one of the first books of its kind to appear on the New York Times bestseller list. But even more unusual, Morrell had killed Rambo at the end of First Blood. The first version of the film killed him as well and was altered only after a near riot at a test screening, so how was Morrell going to resurrect his character for the novelization?

Rambo (First Blood Part II) will soon be available in a signed collector’s edition from Gauntlet Press (in collaboration with Borderlands Press). As with the collector’s edition of First Blood, this 500-copy numbered edition comes with a wealth of extras that include:

* First time in hardback
* Morrell’s revision of the 1985 text
* Morrell’s lengthy introduction that explains the behind-the-scenes intrigue of the movie and the novelization
* Morrell’s lengthy essay, “Rambo and Me: the Story behind the Story,” that analyzes Rambo’s origins in the social unrest and violence of the late 1960s in the U.S.
* A lengthy 1985 article from the Los Angeles Times, “The Curious Evolution of John Rambo,” detailing the numerous film studios and the 26 scripts that were involved in the dramatic ten-year process of bringing Morrell’s character to the big screen

Dark Advent
by Brian Hodge

eBook Available For IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD!

Hi Folks!

Hot on the heals of our newest eBook releases, we’re very pleased to announce yet another new addition to the Cemetery Dance eBook line: Dark Advent by Brian Hodge, his acclaimed post apocalyptic epic that we recently published in a now sold out signed Limited Edition!

Dark AdventAbout the Book:
It arrives without warning: a devastating plague, the medieval Black Death weaponized for the age of global terrorism.

Like a biblical pestilence, this plague sweeps through modern civilization almost overnight, destroying good and evil alike, leaving only a handful of survivors to make their way through an empty landscape and face the unknown horrors awaiting them in a savage new world.

In a deserted St. Louis department store, a few survivors band together to begin again. But beyond their temporary haven, an evil is stirring. An evil that preys upon human weakness for its own twisted ends.

Soon, all that stands between the reborn world and a reign of insanity is this unlikely fortress of humanity, armed with what can be found on a department store shelf and what courage they can muster to battle a monstrous, merciless scourge…

Taylor Grant Nominated For the Bram Stoker Award!

The Dark at the End of the Tunnel
by Taylor Grant

Nominated For the Bram Stoker Award!
eBook Available For IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD!

Hi Folks!

The Dark at the End of the TunnelCongratulations to author Taylor Grant, who just received a Bram Stoker Award Nomination for his first collection, The Dark at the End of the Tunnel, which is available as an eBook from Cemetery Dance Publications!

Check out what some recent reviewers have been saying, then click to your favorite retailer and order a copy:

“The powerful yet economical story-telling and crisp, effective dialogue call to mind the great Ira Levin…Like all great horror authors, Grant can generate terror from monstrous beings but also from human cruelty. The Dark at the End of the Tunnel gives horror fans something to celebrate.”
This is Horror UK

“Give yourself a remarkable experience and buy The Dark at the End of the Tunnel.  The whole book is really good, and I mean really good, but the standouts such as “The Silent Ones” will last with you forever. When Taylor Grant becomes a household name (and that is already starting), you will nod your head sagely and say ‘I knew about him before…’”
The Horror Zine

“ …exceptional collection of short fiction…beautifully constructed.  Much is at risk in each story—not only a characters’ physical beings, but their hearts and souls as well…with emphasis on soul.
Collings Notes

“Grant has a extremely gifted writing ability and tells captivating tales…I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys their horror fiction dark and with deep thought and intelligence.”
Beneath the Underground

“Taylor Grant is an excellent writer. If his debut is this good, his future works will be amazing.”

Hi Folks!

UglyWe’re extremely pleased to report that we’ve sent Ugly by Mick Garris, a brand new Signed Limited Edition hardcover, to the printer and it’ll be published in June!

About the Book:
Being a doctor empowers you in ways civilians cannot imagine, and Terry has helped the rich and famous of Hollywood stay young and perfect for years past their prime. He thinks he’s seen everything, but he hasn’t seen someone like Brittany before.

I turned around in slow motion, reeling, and saw the repellent creature behind the counter staring at me. Even more repulsive, she was starting to smile. Her teeth were horrifically staggered.

“Maybe you should stay,” she said, happily.

I tried to shake my head, but it just jerked spastically. I tried to speak, but my tongue was thick and my lips couldn’t form the words. I just gulped and floundered like a goldfish dumped from its bowl onto the floor. And then this creature shambled out from behind the counter and crossed the room, her shadow growing as she grew closer until it devoured me. She turned off the lights, put the CLOSED sign in the window, lowered the curtains, and squatted down next to me.

“You’re pretty,” she told me…

About the Book:
Summer of NightOne of the signature horror novels of the 1990s, Dan Simmons’s magisterial Summer of Night is now twenty-five years old. In the course of that quarter century, it has firmly established itself as a classic of the genre, a book whose capacity to shock, amuse, move and horrify remains undiminished.

The story takes place in Elm Haven, Illinois in 1960 and begins at an iconic moment: the last day of school before the long summer vacation begins. But at Old Central School, soon due to close its doors forever, something ancient and implacable has begun to quicken, its hour come round at last. Soon, impossible figures, some of them long dead, are proliferating throughout Elm Haven, transforming what should be an idyllic summer into the crazed and bloody precursor to a new Dark Age.

Set against these horrific incursions is a wonderfully characterized band of adolescent boys – along with one unforgettable young girl – who alone understand the nature of the menace that threatens their hometown. Turning away from the standard pursuits of summer – baseball, treasure hunts, overnight camping trips – the youthful members of the Bike Patrol find themselves serving as the last line of defense against an apparently unbeatable enemy. The account of their struggle against impossible odds is one of the major accomplishments of modern horror fiction.

From the opening evocation of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House to its fiery conclusion in the halls of Old Central, Summer of Night balances graphic supernatural horror with a profusely detailed portrait of “the secrets and silences” of childhood. In the process, it takes a time, place and way of life that are now long gone, bringing them indelibly to life. Subterranean Press is proud to present this modern classic in a deluxe, lovingly crafted new edition.

The Subterranean Press 25th Anniversary Edition of Summer of Night will be printed on 80# Finch, and feature ten full-color original illustrations by David Palumbo.

An Interview With Richard Chizmar About A Long December

An Interview With Richard Chizmar About A Long December
Brand New MASSIVE Signed Limited Edition Hardcover From Subterranean Press!
520 Page Hardcover Featuring 35 Classic Short Stories!

“Powerful…I love it…Richard Chizmar writes clean, no-nonsense prose…sets his tales in no-nonsense, middle class neighborhoods I can relate to…and writes terrific stories served with a very large slice of Disquiet Pie.”
— Stephen King

Hi Folks!

Subterranean Press will be publishing A Long December, a massive collection of thirty-five stories spanning Richard Chizmar’s career, and copies ordered through the Cemetery Dance online store can be personally inscribed, so just reply to your order confirmation email and let Mindy know what you’d like him to write in your copy and she’ll add that request to your order.

The book comes twenty years after Chizmar’s first collection, Midnight Promises, itself a finalist for a World Fantasy Award. Advance buzz on A Long December has been strong, with novelist Scott Smith (The Ruins, A Simple Plan) saying, “Chizmar does a tremendous job of peeling back his world’s shiny layers, revealing the rot that lies underneath. His stories feel like so many teeth: short and sharp and ready to draw blood.”

A Long DecemberRead on for insight from the author about this upcoming collection, including what was behind his decision to publish it through a press other than his own.

What can you tell us about A Long December?

Big, fat short story collection. My first in almost two decades. Thirty-five stories from every stage of my career. Clocks in at just over 150,000 words of fiction and 8,000 words of Story Notes. All topped off by a gorgeous cover from Edward Miller. It’s a dream project for me and a long time coming.

How did you decide on the thirty-five stories that made it into the book?

I included the best stories from my first two collections, Midnight Promises and Monsters and Other Stories, as well as about a dozen uncollected older stories that I really like. The last 18 months have been a very productive time for me, and I’ve probably written and sold an additional ten or eleven stories to numerous anthologies. All those stories are also included. Finally, I sat down and wrote a brand new, 23,000 word novella “A Long December” expressly for the collection. Subterranean Press called it “an extremely dark tumble down the serial killer rabbit hole” — and I think that’s a terrific description.

Why did you decide to publish A Long December with Subterranean Press instead of Cemetery Dance?

A couple of reasons. First and foremost, Subterranean Press is an incredible publisher. They’ve been around for a long time and have published pretty much all of the authors I love to read. They produce beautiful books, and I was excited and flattered to work with them.

The second reason I didn’t publish my own collection is the limited number of publication slots CD has open each year. I simply didn’t want to take up one of those slots with my own writing. I’ve never really done that before and didn’t want to start now, plus we have so many quality submissions coming in that it didn’t seem fair to me. Anthologies are a different bird altogether since I’m compiling the work of other writers.

You’ve spent most of the past couple decades working on the publishing side of Cemetery Dance and writing and producing movies. How does it feel to be focused on your own fiction again?

It feels wonderful. It feels right. In fact, I just posted this on my Facebook page as my way of expressing the excitement and appreciation I feel:

“The little boy who used to dream about being a writer — the one who used to lock himself in his bedroom and sit at his little desk by the window and scribble monster and war stories in his notebooks; the one who used to watch The Waltons on television because John Boy (whose real name was Richard Thomas, just like the little boy!) was a writer; the one who used to climb trees and look out over the world and make up stories in his head — that little boy all grown up is grateful and amazed that his dream came true and he actually grew up to be a writer — and he’s especially grateful for everyone who helped him along the way and every single person who ever spent their hard-earned money to read his stories.”

A Little Blue Book of Bibliomancy by Chet Williamson From Borderlands Press

A Little Blue Book of Bibliomancy
by Chet Williamson

Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of only 500 Copies!

Hi Folks!

Little BookWe’re pleased to report we’ll be getting a handful of copies of A Little Blue Book of Bibliomancy by Chet Williamson from Borderlands Press, and we don’t expect these to last very long!

About the Book:
Though primarily a writer of very accomplished fiction, Chet Williamson has also written non-fiction books, essays, plays, reviews, songs, and letters of complaint. What you’ll find in these pages is a grab-bag of his work that is largely unseen by his usual audience.

There is one piece of fiction: “Returns.” And it is new to all but two readers.

About ten years ago, Williamson began a secondary career as a playwright, having had a few produced—the most recent of which was He Comes For His Books, a roman a clef about Harold Pinter and first wife Vivien Merchant.

There are two plays in his Little Blue Book—one a dramatic adaptation of one of his short stories, and the other of a novella. In the case of the novella, The Story of Noichi the Blind, Booklist said, “This extraordinary performance makes such comparably transgressive writing as the Marquis de Sade’s seem totally crude.”

The remaining pages contain reviews, tributes to four writers, and a handful of essays and blogs.

A Little Blue Book of Bibliomancy promises to give readers new insights into one of our favorite writers.

About the Book:
From the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2 and Heart-Shaped Box comes a chilling novel about a worldwide pandemic of spontaneous combustion that threatens to reduce civilization to ashes and a band of improbable heroes who battle to save it, led by one powerful and enigmatic man known as the Fireman.

The fireman is coming. Stay cool.

No one knows exactly when it began or where it originated. A terrifying new plague is spreading like wildfire across the country, striking cities one by one: Boston, Detroit, Seattle. The doctors call it Draco Incendia Trychophyton. To everyone else it’s Dragonscale, a highly contagious, deadly spore that marks its hosts with beautiful black and gold marks across their bodies—before causing them to burst into flames. Millions are infected; blazes erupt everywhere. There is no antidote. No one is safe.

Harper Grayson, a compassionate, dedicated nurse as pragmatic as Mary Poppins, treated hundreds of infected patients before her hospital burned to the ground. Now she’s discovered the telltale gold-flecked marks on her skin. When the outbreak first began, she and her husband, Jakob, had made a pact: they would take matters into their own hands if they became infected. To Jakob’s dismay, Harper wants to live–at least until the fetus she is carrying comes to term. At the hospital, she witnessed infected mothers give birth to healthy babies and believes hers will be fine too. . . if she can live long enough to deliver the child.

Convinced that his do-gooding wife has made him sick, Jakob becomes unhinged, and eventually abandons her as their placid New England community collapses in terror. The chaos gives rise to ruthless Cremation Squads–armed, self-appointed posses roaming the streets and woods to exterminate those who they believe carry the spore. But Harper isn’t as alone as she fears: a mysterious and compelling stranger she briefly met at the hospital, a man in a dirty yellow fire fighter’s jacket, carrying a hooked iron bar, straddles the abyss between insanity and death. Known as The Fireman, he strolls the ruins of New Hampshire, a madman afflicted with Dragonscale who has learned to control the fire within himself, using it as a shield to protect the hunted… and as a weapon to avenge the wronged.

In the desperate season to come, as the world burns out of control, Harper must learn the Fireman’s secrets before her life–and that of her unborn child–goes up in smoke.

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance (Revised and Updated) by Robin Furth

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance (Revised and Updated) by Robin Furth
Signed Limited Edition Shipping Next Month!

Less Than 50 Copies Available Now For Reservation!

“I found this overview of In-World, Mid-World, and End-World both
entertaining and invaluable. So, I am convinced, will you.” — Stephen
King

Hi Folks!

Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance (Revised and Updated)We’re pleased to report our signed Limited Edition hardcover of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance (Revised and Updated) by Robin Furth is nearly completed at the printer and will be shipping next month, but we have less than 50 copies available for reservation!

About the Book:
The Dark Tower series is the backbone of Stephen King’s legendary career. Eight books and more than three thousand pages make up this bestselling fantasy epic. This revised and updated concordance, incorporating the 2012 Dark Tower novel The Wind Through the Keyhole, is the definitive encyclopedic reference book that provides readers with everything they need to navigate their way through the series. With hundreds of characters, Mid-World geography, High Speech lexicon, and extensive cross-references, this comprehensive handbook is essential for any Dark Tower fan.

From Stephen King’s Foreword:
“Her Concordance was never meant to be published; it was created solely as a writer’s tool. But, even with most of my mind preoccupied by the writing of my tale, I was aware of how good it was, how interesting and readable it was. I also became aware, as time passed and the actual publication of the final three volumes grew closer, of how valuable it might be to the Constant Reader… In any case, it was Robin Furth who inventoried the goods I had on sale, and replaced all the dim overhead lights so I could see everything clearly and find my way from Housewares to Appliances without getting lost…or from Gilead to Calla Bryn Sturgis, if you prefer. That in no way makes her responsible for my errors—of which I’m sure there are many—but it is important that she receive credit for all the good work she has done on my behalf. I found this overview of In-World, Mid-World, and End-World both entertaining and invaluable. So, I am convinced, will you.”

Freedom of the Mask by Robert McCammon: Signed Hardcover Editions From Subterranean Press

Freedom of the Mask by Robert McCammon
Signed Hardcover Editions From Subterranean Press

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to announce we’ll be receiving a very limited supply of Freedom of the Mask by Robert McCammon, his brand new novel from Subterranean Press, and we expect these to sell very quickly, so don’t wait to place your order!

Freedom of the MaskPublisher: Subterranean Press
Publication Date: 2016
Limited: 474 signed numbered copies, bound in leather, with the bonus story, artwork not in the trade hardcover, and housed in a custom slipcase
Trade (signed): 1000 copies of the trade edition have been signed by the author

About the Book:
The year is 1703, and Matthew Corbett, professional “problem solver,” is missing. Last seen by his friends in New York before he departed on a lucrative, seemingly straightforward mission for the Herrald Agency in Charles Town, he’s been too long absent. His comrade-in-arms Hudson Greathouse has an increasing sense the young friend he thinks of as a son must have met with some unexpected peril. Following his hunch, Greathouse retraces Matthew’s steps only to find him first presumed dead, then accused of murdering a young woman and apparently en route to London with a devious Prussian count last encountered on Professor Fell’s Pendulum Island.

Little does he know that Matthews’s circumstances are growing worse by the second. For when Matthew arrives in the bustling squalor of Londontown, he’s come shackled, charged for the murder of Count Anton Mannerheim Dahlgren. No matter the lack of body, presumed lost to the ocean. He soon finds himself locked up in the infamous Newgate prison, and has drawn the interest of a mysterious mask-wearing vigilante accused of several gruesome murders. Greathouse and the woman Matthew loves, Berry Grigsby, travel across the high seas to England to aid their friend, but it is impossible to know whether they will reach him in time to save his life.

Freedom of the Mask is the sixth installment in bestselling author Robert McCammon’s acclaimed series of standalone historical thrillers featuring the exploits of a young hero the USA Character Approved Blog has called “the Early American James Bond.” The most surprising and ambitious volume to date, this is a novel filled with unpredictable twists and a note-perfect depiction of early 1700s London. Fans will not want to miss Matthew Corbett’s most dangerous adventure yet.

The Limited Edition will contain an exclusive bonus novella—over 22,000 words long—featuring Hudson Greathouse’s visit to “The House at the Edge of the World.”

The Bill Hodges Trilogy Hardcover SLIPCASED Boxed Set

The Bill Hodges Trilogy Hardcover SLIPCASED Boxed Set
by Stephen King
Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch
Includes Brand New, Original Dust Jacket Artwork Produced Exclusively For This Set!

Hi Folks!

We’re very pleased to report we WILL be receiving copies of the Bill Hodges Trilogy Hardcover Slipcased Boxed Set by STEPHEN KING from Scribner, but our supplies are very limited and we don’t expect them to last long!

NOTE FOR COLLECTORS:
Boxed SetFor a limited time only, if you order this item through the Cemetery Dance online store, you’ll automatically receive a FREE signed Limited Edition art print inspired by the Bill Hodges trilogy with your shipment. We can’t tell you who the artist is yet, but Stephen King fans have raved about this artist’s work for King’s Limited Editions and we don’t expect these to last long. Normally, we would sell this signed Limited Edition Art Print for $25, but you can receive it absolutely free with this Boxed Set if you hurry!

About the Box Set:
A magnificently packaged boxed set of hardcover editions of Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch, the Edgar award–winning trilogy starring Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, Jerome Robinson, and the diabolical Mercedes Killer, Brady Hartsfield—with unique new jackets and case!

About the Books:
Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.

In End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy to a sublimely terrifying conclusion, combining the detective fiction of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers with the supernatural suspense that has been his trademark. The result is an unnerving look at human vulnerability and up-all-night entertainment.

20th Century Ghosts: 10th Anniversary Special Edition

20th Century Ghosts: 10th Anniversary Special Edition
by Joe Hill

PS Publishing 774 Copy Slipcased Limited Edition IN-STOCK NOW!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report that we have received copies of 20th Century Ghosts: the 10th Anniversary Special Edition by Joe Hill from PS Publishing in the UK and these copies are already in-stock in our warehouse, but we don’t have many to go around so don’t want to place your order!

About the Book:
Joe HillAnyone out there heard of this cat Joe Hill? Yeah, of course you have. And I’ll bet ya heard of Joe’s Ray Bradbury’s Fellowship award for the story ’20th Century Ghost’ and maybe you heard he also received the William L. Crawford award for best new fantasy writer in 2006, the A. E. Coppard Long Fiction Prize in 1999 for ‘Better Than Home’ and the 2006 World Fantasy Award for ‘Voluntary Committal’. His stories have appeared in a variety of magazines, such as Postscripts, Subterranean Magazine and The High Plains Literary Review, and in many anthologies.

Well, it’s 10 years since, overloaded to the back teeth with projects, CD Head Honcho Richard Chizmar sent Joe our way to ask if PS might be interested in publishing his collection of tales, wrapped around the title of that Bradbury Fellowship story. On the night Joe responded to my suggestion that he send me his three best yarns. I read ‘Ghost’, ‘Pop Art’ (sheer genius and containing a killer closing line) and, heck, you know, I don’t recall the third one. I do recall dropping him a line first thing the next morning and asking for a phone number and I called and we spoke and we made a deal and, well, you know the rest—20TH CENTURY GHOSTS, GUNPOWDER, HORNS, plus a little something special just down the pike that we’ll talk about a little later. But before that, just to re-whet your whistle, here’s the 10th Anniversary edition of the book that started the ball rolling and which notched up in quick succession the World Fantasy Award, the British Fantasy Award, the International Horror Guild.

A Long December by Richard Chizmar
Brand New Signed Limited Edition Hardcover From Subterranean Press!

Hi Folks!

We’re very pleased to report that we’ll be getting copies of A Long December by Richard Chizmar, his new Limited Edition from Subterranean Press and his first collection in more than two decades. This will be a BIG book, just look at the lengthy table of contents on the product page!

Note From Cemetery Dance:
A Long DecemberRichard Chizmar can personally inscribe any copies ordered through the Cemetery Dance online store, so just reply to your order confirmation email and let Mindy know what you’d like him to write in your copy and she’ll add that request to your order!

About the Book:
In 1996, Richard Chizmar’s debut short story collection, Midnight Promises, was a finalist for the World Fantasy Award. Publishers Weekly called it “a sterling collection” while singling out “The Silence of Sorrow” as “an understated masterpiece.”

Two years later, Subterranean Press published a mini-collection from Chizmar entitled Monsters and Other Stories. In his introduction, acclaimed genre critic Edward Bryant said, “When all is said and done, this book should leave you in utter silence, giving you time and opportunity to contemplate what you just read. Tough storytelling from a tough writer; but a writer who is not calloused. Chizmar possesses a finely honed gift of empathy. With utter grace and loving kindness he’ll put you right inside the life (and soul) of the monster.”

Now, nearly two decades later, Chizmar assembles thirty-five stories, including a previously-unpublished novella, and presents us with A Long December. This massive new collection features more than 150,000 words of Chizmar’s very best short fiction and includes 8,000 words of autobiographical Story Notes.

Eerie, suspenseful, poignant, the stories in A Long December range from horror to suspense, crime to dark fantasy, mainstream to mystery.

As New York Times bestselling author Scott Smith (A Simple Plan, The Ruins) notes: “It’s an idyllic little world Richard Chizmar has created. Boys fish in the shallows of a winding creek. A father tosses a baseball with his young son in the fading light of a summer day. There’s the smell of fresh-cut grass. And then, well…just beneath the surface? There are those missing pets whose collars turn up in a shoebox. Or the disturbing photos the dead can leave behind. Or the terrible thing you might find yourself doing when a long lost brother suddenly returns, demanding money. Chizmar does a tremendous job of peeling back his world’s shiny layers, revealing the rot that lies underneath. His stories feel like so many teeth: short and sharp and ready to draw blood.”

Hi Folks!

Fine CutsWe’re pleased to report we’ll be receiving copies of Fine Cuts by Dennis Etchison from Borderlands Press and we don’t expect this signed Limited Edition hardcover to last long!

About the Book:
This book collects 13 powerful tales by one of the most acclaimed writers in modern horror. These are unforgettable stories from the dark side of Hollywood and the razor’s edge between fantasy and reality, where truth is under contract to ambition, morality remains on the cutting-room floor and life and death are the ingredients of a plot from which no one can escape.

Originally published only in the U.K. and never reprinted, this is the rarest of Etchison’s collections. Borderlands Press is proud to present the first American publication of Fine Cuts, including a preface by the author, an introduction by Peter Atkins and expanded contents for this very special edition.

DENNIS ETCHISON is a master of the short story and one of the most acclaimed writers in modern horror/dark fantasy. His work has appeared in print since 1961 and he is a three-time winner of both the British Fantasy and World Fantasy Awards.
