The Border by Robert McCammon
An Epic New Novel Compared to SWAN SONG and STINGER!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to announce we’ll be getting a limited supply of the SIGNED trade hardcover and the signed & numbered & Slipcased Limited Edition hardcover of The Border by Robert McCammon from Subterranean Press and we expect them to sell very quickly, so don’t wait to place your order!

About the Book:
The BorderWorld Fantasy award-winning, bestselling author Robert McCammon makes a triumphant return to the epic horror and apocalyptic tone reminiscent of his books Swan Song and Stinger in this gripping new novel, The Border, a saga of an Earth devastated by a war between two marauding alien civilizations.

But it is not just the living ships of the monstrous Gorgons or the motion-blurred shock troops of the armored Cyphers that endanger the holdouts in the human bastion of Panther Ridge. The world itself has turned against the handful of survivors, as one by one they succumb to despair and suicide or, even worse, are transformed by otherworldly pollution into hideous Gray Men, cannibalistic mutants driven by insatiable hunger. Into these desperate circumstances comes an amnesiac teenaged boy who names himself Ethan—a boy who must overcome mistrust and suspicion to master unknowable powers that may prove to be the last hope for humanity’s salvation. Those same powers make Ethan a threat to the warring aliens, long used to fearing only each other, and thrust him and his comrades into ever more perilous circumstances.

A major new novel from the unparalleled imagination of Robert McCammon, this dark epic of survival will both thrill readers and make them fall in love with his work all over again.

The limited edition will feature:
An exclusive wraparound dust jacket
Custom slipcase
An original afterword by Robert McCammon
Several full page interior illustrations not in the trade hardcover
The trade edition dust jacket as a frontispiece
Limited: 500 signed numbered copies, bound in leather, housed in a custom slipcase

Invisible Fences by Norman Prentiss: Surprise In-Stock Trade Paperback For Just $14!

Invisible Fences
by Norman Prentiss
Surprise In-Stock Trade Paperback For Just $14!

Hi Folks!

Invisible FencesIn case you missed the news over the holidays, we’re very pleased to report that Invisible Fences by Norman Prentiss is available as an afforable trade paperback and copies are shipping from our warehouse now!

About the Book:
Do you see the point of the story, Nathan? We all cut parts of ourselves away, but we never lose them. Things stay with us—souvenirs with memories attached. We can’t always choose what to keep, what to throw away.

Nathan’s parents devised cautionary tales for him and his sister—gruesome stories about predatory cars racing along the “Big Street” at one end of their neighborhood, or dope fiends lurking in the woods behind their house and ready to plunge hypodermics into the skin of foolish young trespassers. These stories served their purpose during Nathan’s gullible childhood, essentially constructing an invisible fence around the yard and keeping the boy close to home where he’d be safe.

Such barriers are not so easy to discard in later life. As an adult, Nathan no longer believes his parents’ stories, and yet they still confine him. He lives cautiously, avoiding serious relationships, avoiding risk. But despite his efforts, something from his parents’ cautionary tales threatens to creep beneath that invisible border…and the enclosed yard might not be as safe and secure as it always seemed…

I Tell You It’s Love by Joe R. Lansdale, Adapted and illustrated by Daniele Serra!

I Tell You It’s Love by Joe R. Lansdale
Adapted and illustrated by Daniele Serra

Hardcover From the UK Coming Soon!

Hi Folks!

I Tell You It's LoveWe’re pleased to report that we’ll be getting a limited supply of I Tell You It’s Love by Joe R. Lansdale, adapted and illustrated by Daniele Serra from SST Publications in the UK!

About the Book:
Dark moments seem like sweetness and light to lovers who dance to the beat of a dying heart. Ugly is beauty to them, horror is their laughter, and souls, dark or bright need not apply.

Praise and Reviews:
“Joe Lansdale’s stories have a dark, terrible beauty to them. Daniele Serra captures the genuine dread and horror of the original story and paints it into something that’s closer to the true texture of a nightmare than anything I’ve read in a very long time.” — Christopher Golden

“I Tell You It’s Love is a gloriously twisted, incredibly dark love story by the great Joe R. Lansdale, brought to vivid life by Daniele Serra’s brilliant artwork. You won’t be able to turn away—much as you might sometimes wish you could. This is a romance like none you’ve ever seen.” — Jeffrey J. Mariotte

“I have always been a fan of Joe Lansdale and coupled with the wonderfully eerie and evocative artwork of Daniele Serra this book is a must-have.” — George Pratt

“Lansdale’s proto-splatterpunk romance retold with art as beautifully barbed as the narrative. It penetrates deep, like a meat hook in your flesh.” — Jovanka Vuckovic

The Rockabye Worm by Glenn Chadbourne Hardcover From the UK Coming Soon!

The Rockabye Worm by Glenn Chadbourne
Hardcover From the UK Coming Soon!

“A twisted little ditty. Only Glenn Chadbourne could give us something simultaneously this adorable and this grotesque. Chadbourne’s art is a balm for the horror fiend’s soul. He shows a master’s eye for detail and a jester’s sense of mischief. Instead of illustrating someone else’s stories, he’s stepped up and created his own at last, and it’s playfully grim madness. All I can say is, I want more.”
— Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Snowblind

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report that we’ll be getting a limited supply of The Rockabye Worm: A Boneyard Fable by Glenn Chadbourne from Short, Scary Tales Publications in the UK!

The Rockabye Worm first came into being as song lyrics Glenn Chadbourne wrote a few years ago. Over the years he and some friends decided to cope with the harsh Maine winters by forming a silly little rock band called Nick Noxious and the Necrophiliacs. Glenn was a great lover of punk music back in the late ’70s and ’80s so all the tunes lent themselves to that flavor. He thought about a host of creepy kid’s rhymes and poems about worms playing piknuckle in your snout, etc., and then his tune about “The Rockabye Worm” was born. He thought it might make for an amusing illustrated story so he set to work. Glenn uses his trademark pen and ink drawings to create a fun little snack with a creepy-fun sort of atmosphere for those a bit bent, such as himself, and who like their gallows humor.

Norman Prentiss Hired As Editor For Cemetery Dance Publications eBook Line!

Norman PrentissCemetery Dance Publications is very pleased to announce that Bram Stoker award winning author Norman Prentiss has been hired as Editor of the Cemetery Dance eBook line to oversee the relaunch of the line as a major part of our business in 2015. The hardcovers and the magazine aren’t going away, but we’ve already published more than 100 eBooks in the last few years and we want to take advantage of the digital landscape to promote Cemetery Dance Publications and our authors to a new generation of horror readers.

Norman’s been working with us since 2005 when he started as a proofreader, then later moved on to an Assistant Editor position reading story submissions to the magazine in 2006; his magazine stint as Associate Editor, Non-Fiction, started with issue 61, shifting later to Associate Editor, Fiction. Other work has included copyediting for some of his favorite authors in the CD book line.

Norman’s fiction has appeared in Postscripts, Black Static, Dark Fusions, All-American Horror of the 21st Century, Blood Lite 3, Best Horror of the Year, The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror, and elsewhere. He’s proud to have several publications under the CD banner, including his first book, Invisible Fences, in the Cemetery Dance Novella Series (winner of a 2010 Bram Stoker Award in the Long Fiction Category); Four Legs in the Morning in the Cemetery Dance Signature Series, and stories in CD anthologies and chapbooks, including four appearances in the acclaimed Shivers series.

Norman recently stepped down from his magazine duties to concentrate on a newly created position as Editor for the Cemetery Dance eBook line. He’ll be working with Brian James Freeman, Richard Chizmar, Kate Freeman, Mindy Jarusek, and Dan Hocker to help manage the CD eBooks currently available, and will help acquire and edit new titles—including a new series of books that will be announced shortly.

“This is a solid collection of quick reads, a nice selection of appetizers that represent the horror genre and many of its incarnations well.”
— Blu Gilliand, October Country

“These tales are well written, fun to read, and a great way to kill a winter afternoon. Recommended for fans of short story collections and dark fiction!”

Four New Books In 2015 For Richard Chizmar

Richard Chizmar, best known as the founder of Cemetery Dance Publications and screenwriter for Showtime’s Masters of Horror, NBC’s Fear Itself, and several Stephen King and Ed Gorman adaptations, will be making headlines of a different sort in 2015 — as the author of four brand new books.

Richard ChizmarSubterranean Press, an award-winning publishing house based in Michigan, will release Chizmar’s latest collection of short fiction, A Long December, in mid-2015. Containing 30 stories, including the title novella, A Long December will also feature extensive story notes from the author and an introduction from a surprise contributor.

“I’ve known Rich Chizmar since before there was a Subterranean Press,” says Subterranean Press publisher William K. Schafer, “We’ve published chapbooks by him here and there, through the years. Now, with A Long December, I’m proud to showcase his distinct, heartfelt stories as a larger part of our book line.”

Chizmar’s last collection, Midnight Promises, was nominated for the World Fantasy Award.

SST Publications, headquartered in Birmingham, UK, will be publishing three additional Chizmar titles in 2015: an original novella, a novelette co-authored with legendary crime author Ed Gorman, and a limited edition chapbook co-written with actor/director/writer Johnathon Schaech (That Thing You Do, Ray Donavon).

SST publisher Paul Fry says: “I’m so excited to have signed a three book deal with Richard Chizmar. I’ve been a long-time fan of Cemetery Dance and Chizmar is an incredible writer. His stories have a dark, quiet, and subtle beauty to them. I’m thrilled to be able to publish his fantastic work.”

Chizmar adds: “Both Subterranean Press and SST Publications are first-rate publishers, and I’m lucky to have signed with them. After years of focusing on Cemetery Dance and editorial work, it’s been a real pleasure to return to my own stories. Hopefully, readers will embrace the work and there will be lots more to come!”

The Fleshless ManThe Fleshless Man
by Norman Prentiss

About the Book:
“The Fleshless Man wants to kill me,” his mother said.

Curtis never enjoyed the cool, oppressive atmosphere of his childhood home, and that atmosphere is even worse when he returns as an adult. His mother is dying, and her illness seems to infect everyone around her: Curtis’s brother has developed a nervous habit that might indicate more serious problems; the attending nurse exhibits puzzling, possibly sinister behavior; and Curtis himself suffers from nightmares and uncharacteristic dark thoughts.

It’s as if the house itself wants his mother to die more quickly–and it will achieve that goal however it can.

Even if it must inspire Curtis to imagine harming his own mother.

Even if it must summon the intervention of a strange entity called the Fleshless Man.

The Narrator
by Michael McBride and Norman Prentiss

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.

The NarratorSomething 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.

About the Book:
A spectacularly dark and electrifying novel about addiction, religion, music and what might exist on the other side of life.

In a small New England town, in the early 60s, 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. Soon they forge a deep bond, based on their fascination w ith simple experiments in electricity.

Decades later, Jamie is living a nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll. Now an addict, he sees Jacobs again – a show man on stage, creating dazzling ‘portraits in lightning’ – and their meeting has profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings.

This rich and disturbing novel spans five decades on its w ay to the most terrifying conclusion Stephen King has ever w ritten. It’s a masterpiece from King, in the great American tradition of Nathaniel Haw thorne and Edgar Allan Poe.

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.

Salome by Mick Garris: Brand New Original Signed Limited Edition Novel Coming Soon!

Salome by Mick Garris
Brand New Original Signed Limited Edition Novel Coming Soon!

Salome“With the brilliant Salome, Mick Garris is at the top of his game, daggered and wise.  Fiercely offbeat, its mystery mesmerizes, its wit beheading Hollywood’s sunny decay. The writing astonishes and the desperate dreams of Garris’s lost and magnificent will break your heart.”
— Richard Christian Matheson

Hi Folks!

Every now and then we like to wait to announce a new signed Limited Edition hardcover until it’s rolling at the printer, and today we have one of our most exciting “surprise” titles in a long time: Salome by Mick Garris, a brand new, never before published original novel of horror and mystery by the creator and executive producer of Showtime’s Masters of Horror series!

About the Book:
I thought I hated my wife. Until she was murdered.

I thought I knew her, too. Better than anyone.

The spouse is always the first suspect. You feel guilt regardless of how far you are from the scene of the crime. I couldn’t help but feel complicit, that our mutual and growing hatred had somehow taken root and led to this. I knew it wasn’t true in a legal sense, but I felt dirty with responsibility regardless.

Maybe I never really hated my wife. Maybe she just drove me mad. Maybe I would miss her.

But mostly, I needed to know who killed her, and why…

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.)

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!

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.
