Bentley Little was born in Arizona a month after his mother attended the world premiere of Psycho. He received his BA in Communications and MA in English and Comparative Literature at California State University Fullerton. His Master’s thesis was the novel The Revelation, which was later published and won the Bram Stoker Award in 1991. Since then, he has written many more novels and his work has been translated into seven different languages. Several of his novels have been optioned for film.
He has appeared in many issues of Cemetery Dance magazine, including Cemetery Dance #64, which was the Bentley Little Special Issue and featured an interview with him and two of his brand new short stories.
In January 2014, Cemetery Dance Publications proudly announced a twelve book deal with horror legend Bentley Little to make many of his most popular classics available again for readers as collectible signed Limited Edition hardcovers, affordable trade paperbacks, and eBooks!
This new deal grew out of the success of The Influence by Bentley Little, an original novel we published in October 2013 that is now on its second printing, and these twelve books include The Revelation, The Mailman, and The Summoning, which will be published later this year, to be followed by University, Dominion, The Ignored, The Walking, The Association, The Collection, The Policy, Dispatch, and The Burning in 2015 and 2016. (The Mailman has already been published as a signed Limited Edition, but supplies are nearly exhausted and that edition will not be reprinted.)
The Revelation, The Mailman, and The Summoning are all available for preorder immediately, with the signed editions expected to be reserved very quickly by collectors, and the other titles will be available for preorder closer to their publication dates.
