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.”

The Night of the Triffids by Simon Clark
HUGE New Surprise In-Stock Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Shipping Now!

Hi Folks!

Night of the TriffidsWe’re extremely pleased to announce yet another surprise IN-STOCK signed Limited Edition, The Night of the Triffids by Simon Clark!

About the Book:
The Day of the Triffids, John Wyndham’s classic bestseller, is one man’s description of doomsday: almost the entire population has gone blind, and the world has a new master—the monstrous triffid plant. The novel ends with its narrator, Bill Masen, leaving the British mainland with his wife and son to join a new colony on the Isle of Wight.

In The Night of the Triffids, which takes place in the 29th year since the fall of the old world, David Masen, Bill’s now grown–up son, wakes one morning to discover that the world has been plunged into darkness. The few sighted people have their artificial lights, but once more the triffid has the advantage. Setting off to find the cause of the darkness, David finds himself stranded.

Eventually rescued and taken to New York, he discovers a very different sort of colony, prosperous and technologically advanced. But this sophisticated society hides an evil secret—and David is about to come face to face with an old enemy from his father’s past.

Dominoes in TimeDominoes 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.”

End of Watch: A New Novel by Stephen King

End of Watch: A New Novel
by Stephen King
“IN ROOM 217 OF THE LAKES REGION TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY CLINIC, SOMETHING HAS AWAKENED. SOMETHING EVIL.”

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report we’ll be receiving copies of End of Watch by Stephen King for our collectors 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:
End of WatchIN ROOM 217 OF THE LAKES REGION TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY CLINIC, SOMETHING HAS AWAKENED. SOMETHING EVIL.

Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic for five years, in a vegetative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a complete recovery is unlikely. But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake, and in possession of deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.

Retired police detective Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, now runs an investigation agency with his partner, Holly Gibney, who delivered the blow to Hartsfield’s head that put him on the brain injury ward. Brady also remembers that. When Bill and Holly are called to a murder-suicide with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put not only their lives at risk, but those of Hodges’s friend Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister, Barbara. Because Brady Hartsfield is back, and planning revenge not just on Bill Hodges and his friends, but on an entire city.

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.

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

Even though End of Watch 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 End of Watch custom slipcase product page.)

Don’t know what a slipcase is? That’s okay! You can see some sample images of other slipcases we’ve made below. 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!

Wolf Hunt 2 by Jeff Strand Signed Limited Edition!

Wolf Hunt 2 by Jeff Strand
Signed Limited Edition Features an Exclusive Bonus Story!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report we’ll be receiving copies of the Signed Limited Edition of Wolf Hunt 2 by Jeff Strand from Dark Regions Press, and we don’t expect these to last very long!

Wolf Hunt 2Special Note For Collectors:
The signed hardcover editions of Wolf Hunt 2 feature an exclusive 10,000 word bonus story “My Werewolf Neighbor” and three exclusive interior illustrations by artist Frank Walls!

About the Book:
George and Lou used to be thugs for hire. Now they’re living in a shack in Costa Rica, hiding from the crime lord who wants them dead. Their last job, to deliver him a werewolf in a cage, went… badly.

But they can’t hide out forever, and when they’re finally captured, it seems as if George and Lou’s ultimate fate will involve being doused in gasoline and set aflame. Instead, they’re given a second chance. There’s another werewolf out there. This time, it’s Ally, a fourteen-year-old girl.

Kidnapping a teenaged girl is a major conflict with George and Lou’s moral code, but they also aren’t fans of being brutally executed, so they agree to the job. After all, the crime lord doesn’t want to kill Ally–he just wants her to bite him. They’ll snatch her, deliver her as promised, and then do everything they can to return her home safely. She doesn’t even know she’s a werewolf; it’s not as if she’ll create any complications by transforming.

Of course, this is George and Lou, so there are many, many complications.

The worst of which is that they’ve now enraged three other extremely nasty werewolves…

The Narrator
by Michael McBride and Norman Prentiss
In-Stock Trade Paperback Just $14!

Hi Folks!

The NarratorIn case you missed the news earlier this year , we’re very pleased to report that The Narrator by Michael McBride and Norman Prentiss is available as an afforable trade paperback and copies are available to ship now!

About the Book:
Critically acclaimed horror scribes Michael McBride and Norman Prentiss team up to bring you this atmospheric tale of a schoolroom descending into madness.

Something is wrong with Julia Linder’s sixth grade class.

One boy’s harmless tendency of getting lost becomes a crippling fog of disorientation. A girl’s mild twitch turns into an obsessive pattern of frightened raps and repetition. The symptoms are spreading and the source seems to be stories that seize upon the children’s deeply seated fears and intensify them exponentially.

How can mere stories change their behavior?

Abbie is a bright girl at the heart of the mystery. The others are inexplicably drawn to her and become increasingly devoted to her with each passing day. But should her classmates trust her?

The secrets are locked in tales from the past, where only The Narrator can find them.

Have You Been Reading Stephen King Revisited, Our FREE Blog For Stephen King Fans?

Have You Been Reading Stephen King Revisited, Our FREE Blog For Stephen King Fans?

Hi Folks!

Stephen King and Richard ChizmarWe’ve been sharing essays about Stephen King’s early books for StephenKingRevisited.com for more than a year now, and this massive project really is proving to be unlike anything we’ve ever undertaken before!

For those who haven’t heard about the site yet, Cemetery Dance founder and publisher Richard Chizmar is re-reading ALL of Stephen King’s books in the order of publication and he’s posting his thoughts about the experience. He shares stories about his younger days when he read many of these books for the very first time and also observations of how the books read to him now that he’s older and wiser.

When Chizmar asked Stephen King what he thought of the idea of him re-reading all of the books in order, King replied, “You should blog about it” and “go for it!”

Bev Vincent is providing “historical context essays” with hundreds of insightful details about HOW the books came to be written: where King was in his life, what was going on in the world, and other factors that fed the engine of creation.

Plus we’re posting guest essays by authors such as Michael Koryta, Ray Garton, Christopher Golden, Brian Keene, Josh Boone, Ed Gorman, Chet Williamson, Kealan Patrick Burke, and many others who are sharing their own, personal take on these classic Stephen King books.

Be sure to visit StephenKingRevisited.com so you don’t miss out on all of the fun! And while you’re on the website, be sure to sign-up for notifications and updates from Stephen King Revisited using the “Updates and Notifications via email” sign-up box on the right or bottom of the site, so you never miss a post!

Dominoes in Time by Matthew Warner: eBook Available For IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD!

“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

Dominoes in Time
by Matthew Warner

eBook Available For IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD!

Hi Folks!

Hot on the heals of our previous eBook release, we’re very pleased to announce yet another new addition to the Cemetery Dance eBook line: Dominoes in Time by Matthew Warner.

Dominoes in TimeAbout the Book:
Like the first domino in a chain, the most traumatic episode of a person’s life shapes all things to come.

For a fashion model, the key event is a repulsive facial blemish caused by a photographer with an unusual camera. For a man in a post-apocalyptic shelter, it’s the need for emergency medical attention from the last remaining doctor: his ex-wife. For a homeless man, it’s the realization that the backward-walking man beside him controls world events from his park bench.

Matthew Warner ranges from the 19th to the 43rd century in this collection reprinting eighteen horror and science fiction stories.  In the foreword and story notes, Warner describes how his life inspired these tales of infidelity, parenthood, and death.  It includes some of his most popular stories, such as “Backwards Man” and “Second Wind.”

“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

Hi Folks!

Little BookWe’re pleased to report we’ll be getting a handful of copies of A Little Magenta Book about a Dollhouse by Edward Lee from Borderlands Press, and we don’t expect these to last very long!

WELCOME TO THE PATTEN MANOR HOUSE.

It’s a horror house, a slaughter house, a devil house. And it’s something else, too:

A doll house.

Reginald Lympton collects doll houses, and now that he’s acquired the rare Patten Doll House, he can boast the most preeminent collection in the world. But after visions too abominable to reckon, and nightmares blacker than the most bottomless abyss, he discovers in short order that his acquisition is not a prized collector’s item at all but a diabolical thoroughfare designed to serve the darkest indulgences of the King of Terrors.

Now, Edward Lee, the master of hardcore horror, has penned this audacious homage to the master of the Victorian ghost story, M.R. James.
