William Peter Blatty is the author of The Exorcist, The Ninth Configuration, Legion, Elsewhere, many other books and numerous screenplays.
In 2009, Cemetery Dance published a special hardcover edition of his classic haunted house novella, Elsewhere. The signed editions are sold out, but the trade edition is now in its second printing.
Cemetery Dance #62 was a William Peter Blatty special issue and it featured three original contributions by Blatty: "Epilogue: The Exorcist" and "Prologue to Exorcist III: Legion", which were "lost" sections of the screenplays of those movies, and "Terry and the Werewolf", an original short story Blatty wrote in the 1960s that never saw print. Also in the issue was an excerpt of a career spanning interview conducted by Cemetery Dance Managing Editor Brian James Freeman and "An Invitation To The Dance, Legion: Exorcist III" by Kealan Patrick Burke. The cover artwork was painted by Les Edwards.
In 2010, Cemetery Dance published The Exorcist and Legion in one special volume. Featuring two classic William Peter Blatty novels in one beautiful volume for the first-time ever, this oversized deluxe special edition is a must-have for any collector of horror. This incredible collector's edition included original B&W artwork by acclaimed artist Keith Minnion and the entire career spanning interview conducted by Cemetery Dance Managing Editor Brian James Freeman, covering Blatty's life and career from the 1950s to the present.
