October Dreams 2 — Last Chance to Order the SIGNED Trade Hardcover!

October Dreams 2: A Celebration of Halloween
Last Chance to Order the SIGNED Trade Hardcover!

October Dreams 2This weekend will be your last chance to order SIGNED copies of the TRADE HARDCOVER of October Dreams II edited by Richard Chizmar & Robert Morrish, the long-awaited follow up to one of the most acclaimed Halloween anthologies ever!

The editors will be making time to personally sign these trade hardcovers and since neither of them do many book signings or conventions these days, it’s likely you’ll never have another chance to get your book signed by them! Order the special signed trade hardcover on the October Dreams II page before time runs out!

Featuring Ray Bradbury, Dean Koontz, Robert McCammon, Robert Bloch, Stewart O’Nan, Glen Hirshberg, Joe R. Lansdale, Al Sarrantonio, Whitley Strieber, Lisa Morton, Matthew Costello, Elizabeth Massie, and dozens of others, this oversized volume will contain spooky Halloween short fiction, dozens of authors and artists recalling their own personal memories of Halloween, and essays detailing the “history” of Halloween.

Many of the contributing authors will also autograph the signed editions, which we don’t expect will last long considering the popularity of the original October Dreams and the low print runs we have planned for these special editions!

Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters by Douglas Clegg Shipping Soon!

Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters by Douglas Clegg
Stunning New Novella Shipping Later This Week!
Fully Illustrated by Canilglia!

Hi Folks!

Dinner With the Cannibal SistersWe’re pleased to announce Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters by Douglas Clegg has arrived in our warehouse and will begin shipping later this week!

This turned out to be one our most beautiful books of the year and we can’t wait for our collectors to see the final production values.

In addition, Clegg has been one of the most popular authors with collectors over the years, and this new one might just be our favorite book of his to date, so don’t wait because you might miss out!

About the Book:
From Douglas Clegg, award-winning author of Neverland and Isis, comes a dark gem about a notorious family — and a feast like no other.

You’re invited to dinner…

In October 1890 authorities discovered two teenaged girls at Bog Farm surrounded by a scene of unimaginable carnage. A legend grew of their cannibalistic night of terror, but young Lucy and Sally were never put to trial and no one has ever before gotten close enough to interview them.

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.

The River of SoulsThe River of Souls
by Robert McCammon

Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Vincent Chong

Publisher: Subterranean Press
Publication Date: Summer 2014
Limited Edition: 474 signed & numbered copies, bound in leather, with the bonus story, artwork not in the trade hardcover, and housed in a custom slipcase

About the Book:
The year is 1703. The place: the Carolina settlement of Charles Town. Matthew Corbett, professional “problem solver,” has accepted a lucrative, if unusual, commission: escorting a beautiful woman to a fancy dress ball.

What should be a pleasant assignment takes a darker turn when Matthew becomes involved in a murder investigation. A sixteen-year-old girl has been stabbed to death on the grounds of a local plantation. The suspected killer is a slave who has escaped, with two family members, into the dubious protection of a nearby swamp. Troubled by certain discrepancies and determined to see some sort of justice done, Matthew joins the hunt for the runaway slaves. He embarks on a treacherous journey up the Solstice River, also known as the River of Souls. He discovers that something born of the swamp has joined the hunt… and is stalking the hunters with more than murder in mind.

What follows is a shattering ordeal encompassing snakes, alligators, exiled savages, mythical beasts, and ordinary human treachery. The journey up the River of Souls will test the limits of Matthew’s endurance, and lead him through a nightmarish passage to a confrontation with his past, and a moment that will alter his life forever.

Gripping, unsettling, and richly atmospheric, The River of Souls is a masterful historical adventure featuring the continuing exploits of a young hero the USA Character Approved Blog has called “the Early American James Bond.”

The Revenant of Rebecca Pascal by David Barker & W. H. Pugmire

The Revenant of Rebecca Pascal by David Barker & W. H. Pugmire
Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Won’t Last Long!

Hi Folks!

We’re happy to report we were able to order some copies of the signed Limited Edition hardcover of The Revenant of Rebecca Pascal by David Barker & W. H. Pugmire from Dark Renaissance Books, but our limited supply won’t last long!

The Revenant of Rebecca PascalThe Revenant of Rebecca Pascal
by David Barker & W. H. Pugmire

Preface by Joseph S. Pulver
Cover and Illustrations by Erin Wells

Publisher: Dark Renaissance Books
Publication Date: 2014
Signed Limited Edition: $40

Special note: There are a total of seven full color illustrations inside THE REVENANT OF REBECCA PASCAL!

In witch-haunted Arkham, the restless spirit of the narrator’s great-aunt, the notorious poetess Rebecca Pascal, takes possession of an innocent woman and brings havoc to all who encounter her. Richard, to whom she bequeathed her house and wealth, is less fortunate than his expectation has led him to believe; his inheritance is something unholy–and he is no match for the machinations of Rebecca and her acolytes. Inspired in part by Lovecraft’s “The Thing on the Doorstep,” THE REVENANT OF REBECCA PASCAL takes you to ghostly houses and sinister Arkham burying grounds, where alchemy and madness join forces with a daemonic entity aroused from beyond the wall of sleep.

To dream their dreams of Lovecraftian horror..

two set out for Arkham.

Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire

and his boon companion

David Barker.

It was a starless night when they arrived.

Legend-haunted Arkham. Witch-haunted Arkham. Cascades roil in the black ground under certain tombstones in the Old Wooded Graveyard. Fell travelers come and go from ill-lit taverns and desolate cafes and blackened doorways where the traveling wind dusts the weary with ancient fragrances.

Stately Arkham.

Crumbling Arkham. Lovecraft’s Arkham!

From the Preface by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr.

The Revelation by Bentley Little Is Rolling at the Printer Now!

The Revelation by Bentley Little
Signed Limited Edition and Trade Paperback Now Rolling At The Printer!

The Revelation isn’t just a thriller, it’s a shocker. A must for those who like horror with a bite.”
— Richard Laymon”

Unlike anything else in popular fiction.”
— Stephen King

Hi Folks!

The RevelationAs you might have heard, we signed a 12 book publishing deal with Bentley Little earlier this year and the first book in that incredible deal is now rolling at the printer! Check out the fantastic covers and be sure to place your order before the signed Limited Edition sells out!

About the Book:
For the town of Randall, Arizona, the terror starts quietly, oddly—a senile woman in her eighties becomes pregnant.

Then the town’s beloved minister mysteriously disappears, leaving his church and home hideously defiled by blasphemous obscenities scrawled in blood.

Farmers going out to their fields in the morning find their herds of goats slaughtered. Then, as the terror intensifies, the farmers themselves are massacred.

The town begins to smell of death, and the trust which has bound neighbors to one another turns to ashes.

But the relentless tide of death is only an augury of a far more unspeakable cataclysm.

A stranger arrives, an itinerant preacher with mad eyes and an elemental presence named Brother Elias. He seeks out three men: the sheriff, tough, no nonsense Jim Weldon; the new minister, a gentle God-fearing soul named Father Andrews; and Gordon Lewis, a young newlywed whose pregnant wife Marina is the unknowing center of the coming fury.

Together, these people must face an implacable force of evil as old as the world and as relentless as the desert sun…

Praise and Reviews:
“A nail-biting, throat-squeezing, nonstop plunge into darkness and evil. I guarantee, once you start reading this book, you’ll be up until dawn.”

— Rick Hautala

“Grabs the reader and yanks him along through an ever-worsening landscape of horrors…a terifying ride with a shattering conclusion.”
— Gary Brandner

The Revelation isn’t just a thriller, it’s a shocker. A must for those who like horror with a bite.”

It’s February, 1993. When a woman’s mutilated body washes up on an Astoria beach, the unidentifiable corpse is dubbed “The Ditmars Dahlia.” But Jack knows who she is and sets out to learn why and, most important, who. The killers and those who ordered her death go on with their lives, never dreaming that anyone would care about the death of a nobody, unaware of the relentless nemesis they’ve set in motion.

FEAR CITY concludes the Repairman Jack Early Years Trilogy. All the threads of the first two novels weave into a violent tapestry involving the mob, the super-secret Septimus Order, a high-priced call girl operation, and the terrorists who first bombed the World Trade Center. All will be impacted by Jack’s quest to avenge the brutal death of a “nobody.”

For the lettered edition only each copy will contain an original (not a copy) of an outline page, with handwritten corrections and additions, F. Paul Wilson used for FEAR CITY. This enhances the book’s collectibility as NO two books will be alike (each customer received a different original outline page).

Important News: Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters by Douglas Clegg!

Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters by Douglas Clegg
Stunning New Novella Shipping This Summer!
Fully Illustrated by Canilglia!

Hi Folks!

Dinner With the Cannibal SistersWe’re pleased to announce Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters by Douglas Clegg is nearly finished at the printer and will be published this summer!

Clegg has been one of the most popular authors with collectors of our hardcover special editions over the years, and this new one might just be our favorite book of his to date, so don’t wait because you might miss out!

About the Book:
From Douglas Clegg, award-winning author of Neverland and Isis, comes a dark gem about a notorious family — and a feast like no other.

You’re invited to dinner…

In October 1890 authorities discovered two teenaged girls at Bog Farm surrounded by a scene of unimaginable carnage. A legend grew of their cannibalistic night of terror, but young Lucy and Sally were never put to trial and no one has ever before gotten close enough to interview them.

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.

About the Book:
In the fall of 1993, the quiet suburb of Harting Farms is shocked when children begin to vanish, and one is found dead near December Park—a great, sweeping expanse that is sunken below the streets and surrounded on three sides by vast woodlands—a place children believe is haunted.

Newspapers call the abductor the Piper because he has come to lead children away, while kids whisper darker names for him in the school halls. Angelo Mazzone and his friends discover a link to the dead girl and take up the search for the killer, vowing to stop the Piper’s reign of terror.

Their teenage pledge becomes a journey of self-discovery and an odyssey into the darkness of their own hometown…

Coming This Fall! Revival: A 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!

In case you missed the news, Stephen King has a 500+ page novel called Revival that will be published this fall and we’ll be getting some copies for our collectors!

About the Book:
Stephen KingIn 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.

Add A Special Exclusive Slipcase To Protect Your Book!

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

Update On Carrie: The Deluxe Special Edition!

“These were the ghosts which kept trying to come between me and what I was writing, kept insisting that I combine them, somehow, into a story that would tell what could have happened if there really was such a thing as telekinetic energy…”
— Stephen King, from the introduction

Free Read From Rick Dempsey’s Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball!

Rick Dempsey’s Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball
by Johnathon Schaech

Since the baseball season is in full swing now, we wanted to share the introduction to Rick Dempsey’s Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball by Johnathon Schaech for your reading pleasure in case you missed it:

FROM THE INTRODUCTION:

Rick Dempsey's Caught StealingWhen I grew up in Maryland, the Baltimore Orioles were a serious force in baseball. They played the Orioles Way, which was a belief that hard work and fundamentals were the key to winning and success.

Growing up with the Orioles in the 70s and 80s I learned to believe in magic—that anything is possible. Orioles’ magic became a part of me. That magic allowed me to become a dreamer and encouraged me to leave Baltimore for Hollywood to become an entertainer.

I was thirteen years old when the Orioles won the World Series—they did it with a lot of come-from-behind victories, with a new hero every game, and with a team philosophy of never quitting. All those things embody Rick Dempsey and that’s why he became the MVP of the ’83 World Series. He just never quit, no matter what.

I wanted to write a book about never giving up in a way that made the reader’s experience better as they read it.

My friend and fellow actor/entertainer, Josh Charles, says best what this book is all about: “When I was growing up in Baltimore, Rick Dempsey was my favorite Oriole because he always seemed like he was having so much fun between the lines. As a kid, that resonated with me in a profound way. His infamous Babe Ruth impersonations on the tarp during rain delays will forever be etched in my mind. He understood that this game is ultimately here to entertain people. Well, this book does that satisfyingly well and helps me remember, as an adult, why I love this beautiful game and the characters associated with it.”

When my childhood hero Rick Dempsey invited my writing partner, Richard Chizmar, and me to Camden Yards to watch an O’s game in 2002, you can imagine my excitement. Just before the game, Rick spotted us in the stands and gestured for us to come down on the field. It was the first time I had ever stepped onto a Major League playing field and I felt like a thirteen-year-old boy all over again.
Rick guided us to the dugout and began to tell us about a story that needed to be made into a movie. Chizmar and I were blown away by his story and began writing the screenplay. Spending so much time with Rick while pitching the screenplay, I found he was a great and charismatic storyteller and had more than just one unbelievable story to tell. Thus, this book.

I called up Chizmar and a bunch of other friends who love baseball as much as I do to help me put together this book.

As Tom Hanks would say, “There’s no crying in baseball.” But there’s certainly room to laugh. That is what this book will do. You won’t believe these stories are true, but by some sort of Rick Dempsey magic, they are.

I asked my buddy and fellow baseball lover, David Duchovny, to give it a read and this is what he said: “Caught Stealing manages to walk the fine line between fan and fanatic without straying too far into foul territory. It’s everything about baseball that you were afraid to ask. A perfect book to pick up again and again. Even though Johnathon is obviously an Orioles fan, I doff my aging Yankees cap to him.”

Thank you all—enjoy.

About the Book:
Tales of horror and the fantastic have been told in many ways over the centuries — around the campfire, on the stage, in books and movies, and even on television — but no form is quite so visceral and direct as the script.

Whether it’s a stage play, a feature film screenplay, or the script for a classic horror comic, these acclaimed authors aren’t just putting black text on a white page. The writing may seem clean and simple at first, but the authors are actually creating worlds; they’re luring you into their creations and before you know it, there’s no way out. You’re part of the story and you have to keep turning the pages until you reach “The End” or “Fade Out.”

The big question is: will you survive to see the final curtain call?

Come now, take your seat, and let the show begin. You have nothing to fear but your own imagination.
