Lonely Road Books updates appear on their website's News page, so that is the best place to look for Gwendy's Button Box Limited Edition or The William Peter Blatty Screenplay Collection.


Trade and Limited Editions:

The Best of Cemetery Dance 2 edited by Richard Chizmar:
The book is in production and we will post more updates after it is officially announced for presale.

The Best of Shivers edited by Richard Chizmar:
We're still scanning and copyediting the older stories, but this one should be headed to design soon.

Caretakers by Tabitha King:
This title is deep in production and will be published in 2018.

The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin:
This title is deep in production and will be published in 2018.

A Collector's Guide to Dean Koontz by Michael Sauers:
We have big news about this project, which we'll announce later this year.

The Damnation Game by Clive Barker:
This title is nearly finished at the printer and our slipcase maker now has a finished book for sizing the slipcase. The slipcases should be completed in the next eight to ten weeks, so this Limited Edition should be ready to ship in late December.

Dark Debts by Karen Hall:
Work has started on this title, but we are still waiting on the introduction, so we're unable to estimate the publication date at this time. We will post an update as soon as we know more.

Dark Screams edited by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman:
This book is deep in proofreading and it will be published in 2018.

Detours edited by Brian James Freeman:
This title is rolling at the printer and will be published in either late December or January.

Mr. Darkness by Douglas Clegg:

Four Halloweens 2
This book is being proofread and will be sent to the printer this winter.

Halloween Carnival edited by Brian James Freeman (Cemetery Dance Exclusive Collectors Set #3)

The Handyman by Bentley Little:
This book is almost done at the printer and will begin shipping in early November.

The Halloween Children by Brian James Freeman and Norman Prentiss
This book is rolling at the printer and will be published before the end of the year.

Headhunter Reimagined by Michael Slade:
The book is rolling at the printer and will be published in November.

He'll Come Knocking At Your Door by Robert McCammon:
Due to an unexpected production problem with our printer, they won't be able to deliver this title until December. We only just learned of this delay and we're very sorry for the wait. There should be nothing else standing in the way of these projects once the printer starts to roll -- we've already approved all of the production materials. On the plus side, we took advantage of this delay to change the specs for the Limited Edition. Originally, the Limited Edition was going to have the same dust jacket as the trade edition, but our designer used this extra time to change things up a bit and we're pleased to report the Limited Edition will now have its own dust jacket. This DJ will use the same artwork, but there will be a different design with updated flap copy. We hope this will make them an even more important addition to your collection. Thank you for your patience!

In Sunlight and in Shadow edited by Lawrence Block:
This book is being designed now (four color design on all pages!) and the signature sheets have been prepared to Mr. Block to sign. This title will be published in 2018.

Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice:
This book is almost ready for the printer now and will be published in 2018.

Killer Crimes edited by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman (Cemetery Dance Exclusive Collectors Set #3)
This title is with our copyeditor and design is about to begin. We hope to have everything ready for the printer in early 2018.

The Listener by Robert McCammon:
This title is rolling along and will be published in late February 2018.

Night Shift by Stephen King:
The book is in production, all of the artwork has been delivered, and we are proofreading right now. Once we have Stewart O'Nan's afterword, we'll be ready to send to the printer, so publication is set for 2018.

October Dreams II edited by Richard Chizmar and Robert Morrish:
The books have been finished by the printer and the slipcases are in production, so we expect this title to ship in late October or early November.

The Ones Who Are Waving by Glen Hirshberg:
The book is rolling at the printer and will be published in December.

10/31: The Butcher's Story by Norman Partridge (Four Days of Halloween promotion, formally called Oktober Shadows):
Here is the latest update from the author: "Going through and revising chapter by chapter to change up some character stuff, and then I need to write the end. I figure it'll end up about 40 - 45 k. It's basically a seventies horror movie (that takes place in the early eighties) mashed up with 'something in the woods'--that's the Halloween train fun ride, scarecrows, etc., but really something bigger about the heart of the holiday itself. With the characters, it's about what you'd do/how you'd react if you knew you weren't going to make it out of a situation alive."

Reading Stephen King edited by Brian James Freeman:
This book is rolling at the pritner and will be published in late 2017.

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn:

Shining in the Dark edited by Hans-Åke Lilja:

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King:
Jana Heidersdorf in Germany signed the signature sheets last month and Owen King signed them this month before he departed for the big SLEEPING BEAUTIES book tour! Stephen King is the only contributor who still needs to sign the sheets, and as soon as he has time, we'll rush the book to the printer. Everything else is ready to go and this special edition will be published in the first half of 2018. There is more artwork on the product page, too, so if you haven't seen those paintings yet, feel free surf on over there.

Strange Weather by Joe Hill:
Artwork for two of the four books in this set have been completed, and we hope to have the remaining artwork by the end of the year. This title will be published in 2018.

Tales From Greystone Bay by Robert McCammon:
Due to an unexpected production problem with our printer, they won't be able to deliver this title until December. We only just learned of this delay and we're very sorry for the wait. There should be nothing else standing in the way of these projects once the printer starts to roll -- we've already approved all of the production materials. On the plus side, we took advantage of this delay to change the specs for the Limited Edition. Originally, the Limited Edition was going to have the same dust jacket as the trade edition, but our designer used this extra time to change things up a bit and we're pleased to report the Limited Edition will now have its own dust jacket. This DJ will use the same artwork, but there will be a different design with updated flap copy. We hope this will make them an even more important addition to your collection. Thank you for your patience!

The launch titles for Cemetery Dance Select Series will be sent to the printer together in early 2018 and they will be published and shipped together in the spring.

Cemetery Dance Magazine Hardcovers:
The Cemetery Dance magazine hardcovers have been in a holding pattern while we searched for a new printer who could produce this trim size with our preferred binding style (to keep them all looking the same), but we're pleased to report we've found a printer and they're printing some samples for us now. If all goes well, we'll have FIVE issues of the magazine out in hardcover in 2018.

SLIPCASE for Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King:
