Trade and Limited Editions:
A Collector's Guide to Dean Koontz by Michael Sauers:
A fully updated draft of the manuscript is being looked over right now and we hope to have a final draft soon. We will make the book available for preorders again when we have a firm publication date in place.
The Best of Shivers edited by Richard Chizmar:
Richard has selected all of the stories and the contracts have been issued. We're plotting the most effective route for the signature sheets right now, but we anticipate it will take 6 to 9 months for all of the sheets to be signed since so many authors are signing. Stay tuned for updates!
The Damnation Game by Clive Barker:
Clive Barker has signed the signature sheets and our designer is working on a final design of the book. This one will be published in early 2016.
The Dark Tower Companion by Bev Vincent:
This book will ship in December 2015.
Detours edited by Brian James Freeman:
The proofers are taking one more look at this one and the signature sheets have ONE more signer to go, and then this one will be sent to the printer!
Four Halloweens (Four Days of Halloween Promotion):
This book is rolling at the printer and will begin shipping before the end of the year.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn:
The signature sheets have arrived back safely from the author and we've sent everything to the printer. The book will take approximately 12 weeks at the printer. When the books are completed, we'll send a finished copy of the book to our slipcase and traycase makers for sizing purposes. This will guarantee the slipcases and traycases are sized perfectly to fit the books. Once they have a finished copy of the book, they'll get to work and the slipcases should take approximately 12 weeks to complete and the traycases will take approximately 16 weeks to complete.
Mr. Darkness by Douglas Clegg:
We hope to have news to share about this book soon.
October Dreams II edited by Richard Chizmar and Robert Morrish:
The trade hardcover edition shipped in March. The signature sheets are circulating now for the signed editions, but with the added production time for the sheets and for the slipcases/traycases, those editions will be headed to the printer in 2016.
10/31: The Butcher's Story by Norman Partridge (Four Days of Halloween promotion, formally called Oktober Shadows):
The author is working on the manuscript an has completed nearly 15,000 words so far.
'Salem's Lot by Stephen King:
Our printer has started production on the book now that the special order interior paper stock has arrived. Our slipcase maker will be delivering the slipcase prototype for approval after the Thanksgiving holiday. We'll have more updates on the publication date once the printer and case makers schedules are set, but we're looking at February or March 2016 as the most likely ship dates. Thank you for your patience.
Shocklines: Fresh Voices In Terror edited by Richard Chizmar & Matt Schwartz:
The signature sheets are now with the very last author who needs to sign and then this one will be sent to the printer.

Turn Down the Lights edited by Richard Chizmar:
