Please be sure to check this entire page because we list Trade and Limited Editions, Lettered Editions, Other Items, and Books From Other Publishers in their own categories to make it easier to find what you're looking for.
Lonely Road Books updates appear on their website on the News page, so that is the place to look for The Vampyricon Trilogy, The Fall, or The William Peter Blatty Screenplay Collection.
