Finders Keepers: A New Novel by Stephen King

Finders Keepers: A Novel
by Stephen King

We’re very pleased to report we’ll be receiving copies of Finders Keepers by Stephen King for our collectors next year and we’ll also be producing one of our popular custom-made slipcases for this title like we have for the last few King books!

About the Book:
Stephen King“Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, a Salinger-like icon who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.

Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Sauberg finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.

Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.

Add A Special Exclusive Slipcase To Your Order To Protect Your Book!

Even though Finders Keepers by Stephen King is being published by another publisher, we will be producing one of our popular custom-made slipcases for this title like we have for the last few Stephen King books!

The easiest way to add a slipcase to your purchase is by selecting the “Trade Hardcover Edition with Exclusive Slipcase!” option on the product page — you’ll also save on shipping by ordering this way! (You can order just the slipcase by itself on the Finders Keepers custom slipcase product page.)

We’re using the same high-quality materials we have used for our previous Stephen King cases, with one color hot foil stamping. The company who makes these for us is the best in the business and you won’t find a better way to protect your investment! (If you are new to collecting, you can read more about slipcases on our Book FAQ page.)

We’re selling these special slipcases for just $24.95, making them an extremely affordable way to protect your book.  These cases will be produced after the book is published because we need a real copy of the book to get the sizing just right and your book and slipcase will ship together to save you on shipping. We think our collectors will be very pleased with what we have in mind for these very special cases, so don’t wait to place your order!

Four Exciting Collectible Books From PS Publishing In the UK!

We’re pleased to report we have four exciting collectible books on the way across the pond from PS Publishing, but our supplies will not last long! Place your order while you can because we won’t be able to re-stock these once their gone!

The Ritual of Illusion by Richard Christian Matheson

The Ritual of IllusionA sinister love letter to the movies, acclaimed author Richard Christian Matheson’s The Ritual Of Illusion is a novella of modern fear about where stars truly come from. Oscar-winning film siren, Sephanie Vamore, meteors to iconic fame… but like cinema itself, nothing is as it appears. The fifty witnesses to her mythic ascent and bizarre fate are film royalty… many based on Hollywood glitterati; directors, stars, agents, studio heads, screenwriters, lovers, producers. Widescreen with lies and revelation, Vamore’s story is told Rashomon-style with dialogue alone—each hypnotic character adding poignant or lurid details to the shocking truth of what she really is. Matheson’s insider’s voice is a scathing x-ray that leaves them bloodied, awaiting their close-up.

The Last Weekend by Nick Mamatas

Meet Vasilis ‘Billy’ Kostopolos: Bay Area Rust Belt refugee, failed sci-fi writer, successful barfly and, since an exceptionally American zombie apocalypse, accomplished ‘driller’ of reanimated corpses. Now that all the sane, well-adjusted human beings are hunted to extinction, he’s found his vocation trepanning zombies, peddling his one and only published short story and drinking himself to death—that is, until both his girlfriends turn out to be homicidal revolutionaries, he collides with a gang of Berkeley scientists gone berserker, the long-awaited ‘Big One’ finally strikes San Francisco, and what’s left of local government can no longer hide the awful secret lurking deep in the basement of City Hall. Can Bill unearth the truth about America’s demise and San Francisco’s survival—and will he destroy what little’s left of it in the process? Is he legend, the last man, or just another sucker on the vine?

The Ritual of IllusionThe Last Weekend takes a high-powered drill to the lurching, groaning conventions of zombie dystopias and conspiracy thrillers, sparing no cliché about tortured artists, alcoholic ‘genius’, noir action heroes, survivalist dogma, or starry-eyed California dreaming. Starting in booze-soaked but very clear-eyed cynicism and ending in gloriously uncozy catastrophe, this tale of a man and his city’s last living days is merciless, uncomfortably perceptive, and bleakly hilarious.

The Black by Mark Morris

Kate Nolan is a successful magazine editor with a loving husband, James, and a five year old son, Max. Her life couldn’t be more perfect—but one day she receives a phone call from James, which changes everything.

Clearly distressed, James tells Kate to meet him at midnight outside the beach café once owned by her long-dead grandmother in the seaside town of Seahaven, where they both grew up. A strange request, made even more sinister by the fact that in recent weeks Seahaven has become prey to a serial killer who is targeting the local children.

Kate keeps the midnight appointment, but instead of finding her husband and son, she finds herself drawn into an ever-tightening web of past misdeeds and long-buried secrets. As hopes for her missing family fade, Kate becomes involved in a desperate race against time. Where are her husband and son? Have they become the latest victims of the serial killer, who calls himself Dominic and seems to know her intimately? And what has all this to do with Kate’s childhood terror of the impenetrable darkness known as ‘the black’?

Baby Strange by Jim Shields

Baby StrangeA Dark Intelligence Has Been Poisoning Carefully Selected Lives.

The Con Man: ‘Reverend’ Joe McGill claims he’s a healer, but he’s chosen the wrong man to con.

The Psychotic Gangster: Arthur Bewlay has cancer eating away at his face. He’s in no mood to be messed around—either by fake miracle workers or his dead brother Tommy—and he’ll stop at nothing in his desperate desire to live.

The Eccentric Recluse: Maryam Clemenceau is just what both McGill and Bewlay need—a real miracle worker with a bona fide gift. But it comes at a considerable cost.

The Architect: The sinister link between a Maryam’s Gothic apartment block, and Bewlay’s boarded up, abandoned Victorian pub—buildings that are contaminated with fear and the echoes of old and ominous power.

Baby Strange opens with Joe beaten and bound in the back of a car, on his way to an appointment with a cement pit under a Glasgow flyover . . . this is not to be the lowest point of his day.

IT’S ALWAYS DARKEST BEFORE THE HARVEST…

Each year, as summer fades to memory, and the sky begins to grow dark, and the leaves change color and fall, the faint, fetid scent of death—of slowly rotting things—begins to drift in, hanging on the chill air like a ghostly pall, making us wonder what this year’s harvest will produce. Well…the harvest is here. And it’s dead. With these 50 dark tales—and nearly 700 pages of terror—you will experience fear, depravity, love, and loss. And a kind of chill that won’t soon leave your bones.

Revival: The Spectacularly Dark New Novel by Stephen King!

Revival: A New Novel by Stephen King
A spectacularly dark and riveting novel about addiction, religion, fanaticism, and what might exist on the other side of life!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report that Revival by Stephen King, another brand new novel from the King of Horror, is less than two weeks away and we’re hearing nothing but amazing things from early readers who are calling this Stephen King’s darkest novel since PET SEMATARY!

About the Book:
RevivalIn a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister. Charles Jacobs, along with his beautiful wife, will transform the local church. The men and boys are all a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls feel the same about Reverend Jacobs—including Jamie’s mother and beloved sister, Claire. With Jamie, the Reverend shares a deeper bond based on a secret obsession. When tragedy strikes the Jacobs family, this charismatic preacher curses God, mocks all religious belief, and is banished from the shocked town.

Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from the age of 13, he plays in bands across the country, living the nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll while fleeing from his family’s horrific loss. In his mid-thirties—addicted to heroin, stranded, desperate—Jamie meets Charles Jacobs again, with profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings.

In 1959, renowned writer Rod Serling embarked on an ambitious new television series, The Twilight Zone. This groundbreaking anthology wove morality tales – often with an allegorical bent and featuring twist endings to rival O. Henry – spanning the science fiction, fantasy, suspense, and horror genres. In addition to his producing and narrating chores, Serling himself wrote a remarkable 92 of the show’s 156 episodes. Running for five years, The Twilight Zone went on to become a cultural landmark, winning Serling two of his six Emmy Awards and securing a vaunted position as one of the greatest and most influential television shows of all time.

In 2004, publisher Gauntlet Press embarked on an ambitious new book series, AS TIMELESS AS INFINITY: THE COMPLETE TWILIGHT ZONE SCRIPTS OF ROD SERLING. This ten-volume, limited edition run of signed hardcovers collected all 92 of the Twilight Zone scripts written by Serling, reprinted from the writer’s personal copies. Running for a full decade, the series was edited by writer and Rod Serling Memorial Foundation board member Tony Albarella with direct input from Serling’s wife, Carol. Contributors included Serling’s family, friends, contemporaries who worked with the writer, and current talents who were inspired by him.

Now, Gauntlet Press makes THE BEST OF ROD SERLING’S TWILIGHT ZONE SCRIPTS available for the first time in paperback. By contract these will be the ONLY scripts from AS TIMELESS AS INFINITY to appear in paperback. They have been selected by Carol Serling and editor Tony Albarella.

This collection presents ten of Serling’s most iconic scripts, along with analysis commentaries, rare photos, and interviews with Twilight Zone actors, writers, producers, and directors. THE BEST OF ROD SERLING’S TWILIGHT ZONE SCRIPTS includes the following scripts:

“Walking Distance”

“Time Enough at Last”

“The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street”

“A Stop at Willoughby”

“A Passage for Trumpet”

“The Eye of the Beholder”

“The Obsolete Man”

“The Shelter”

“Death’s-Head Revisited”

“To Serve Man”

John Dies at the End by David Wong: Brand New Oversized Signed Limited Edition Rolling at the Printer!

John Dies at the End
by David Wong
Brand New Oversized Signed Limited Edition Rolling at the Printer!
Limited Edition is Already 60% Sold Out and Lettered Edition is 90% Sold Out!

“…a case of the author trying to depict actual, soul-sucking lunacy, and succeeding with flying colors.”
— Fangoria

We’re pleased to announce a brand new oversized signed Limited Edition, the internationally acclaimed John Dies at the End by David Wong, and this one is already rolling at the printer and will be published in December!

Due to the lower than normal print run and the excitement surrounding this author’s work, we don’t expect these to last long, especially since the members of our Cemetery Dance Collectors Club snapped up 60% of the Limited Edition and 90% of the Lettered Edition during their advance notice window!

About the Book:
John Dies at the EndMy name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours.

You may not want to know about the things you’ll read in these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it’s too late. You’re in the game. You’re under the eye.

The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why? You just have to trust me.

The important thing is this:

The drug is called Soy Sauce and it gives users a window into another dimension.

John and I never had the chance to say no.

You still do.

Unfortunately for us, if you make the right choice, we’ll have a much harder time explaining how to fight off the otherworldly invasion currently threatening to enslave humanity.

I’m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind:

None of this was my fault.

Tortured Souls by Clive Barker — Beautiful Subterranean Press Hardcover Edition!

Tortured Souls by Clive Barker
Beautiful Subterranean Press Hardcover Edition!

Hi Folks!

Tortured SoulsWe’re very pleased to report we’ll be receiving copies of Tortured Souls by Clive Barker from Subterranean Press, so don’t wait to place your order or you might miss out!

About the Book:
Tortured Souls is one of the most vividly imagined, tightly compressed novellas ever written by the incomparable Clive Barker. At once violent and erotic, brutal and strangely beautiful, it takes us into the heart of the legendary “first city” known as Primordium, the site of political upheaval, passionate encounters, and astonishing acts of transformation.

Lurking at the edges of this extravagant tale is the ancient entity known as “Agonistes,” who accepts the pleas of selected “Supplicants,” transforming them, through a combination of art, magic, and pain, into avatars of violence and revenge.

The story begins when a freelance assassin named Zarles Krieger commits a routine murder-for-hire. This act will lead him to two life-altering encounters, one with the daughter of his victim, the other with Agonistes himself. This conjunction of the human and the inhuman stands at the center of this instantly absorbing creation.

With great authority and equally great economy, Tortured Souls expands to become a portrait of Primordium itself, with its hierarchies, its hidden mysteries, its shifting power structure, and—most significantly—its indelible cast of characters. A perfectly controlled example of what Barker calls “the fantastique,” Tortured Souls is something truly special, a story whose imaginative reach and sheer narrative power are evident on every page.

Twenty years later, an inexperienced reporter travels to their New Hampshire farm, determined to shed light upon the events of that night.

Lizzie Borden, Dr. Crippen, the Windrow Sisters — murderers whose mystique has lasted more than a century. But of them all, the tale of the Windrow girls is unrivaled in its legend of depravity and innocence corrupted.

A Simple Plan by Scott Smith: Brand New Oversized Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Shipping Now!

A Simple Plan by Scott Smith
Brand New Oversized Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Shipping Now!

A Simple Plan

We’re pleased to announce our special signed Limited Edition of A Simple Plan by New York Times bestselling author Scott Smith is shipping now, and The Ruins by Scott Smith will begin shipping next week! Don’t wait to place your order because supplies are running low for both titles!

A Simple Plan
by Scott Smith

A Simple Plan begins on a snowy winter afternoon. Hank Mitchell is driving on a lonely country road with his brother, Jacob, and his brother’s pal, when suddenly Jacob’s dog leaps into the woods. Following him, the three men come upon the wreckage of a single-engine plane and the body of the pilot. Under the seat they find a duffel bag containing four million dollars in packets of hundred-dollar bills. Shocked, barely able to make sense of what they see, they try to puzzle out the right thing to do.

They arrive at a seemingly simple plan, a plan that will enable them to hide, keep, and eventually share the fortune. They believe it will harm no one, put no one at risk. From the moment the plan is set in motion, Hank’s orderly universe begins to crumble. He is constantly on the watch, trying to prevent his partners — his brother, his brother’s pal, and, ultimately, his wife — from making impulsive or careless moves, triggered by panic or even impatience, that could endanger them all. But soon, himself panicked by his brother’s stupidity and confusion, Hank commits a murder. And his nightmare begins.

Riveting, highly charged at its core, told with extraordinary clarity, coolness, and restraint, Scott Smith’s story of a man driven to acts previously unthinkable seizes the reader and never lets go.
