New Collectors Club Includes An Exclusive Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Printed Just For Members: Husks by Glen Krisch!

Hi Folks!

We’re very pleased to tell you about one of the exclusive perks for the 10th year of the Cemetery Dance Collectors Club, a “Not For Sale” signed Limited Edition hardcover of Husks by Glen Krisch!

This book is already designed and proofread, and we just need to know how many signature sheets to print, which will be determined by the number of collectors who sign-up for the CDCC 10!

About the Book:
As he chased after the fleeting echo of his dead wife’s laughter, some part of him drained away, leaving a dried husk in its place…

Hank Moorland has been wandering for days, an aimless drifter running out of food and water, running out of reasons to live. The only thing that keeps him going is a promise he made long ago to his wife before she died: he would carry on, despite her absence.

With his last remaining energy, Hank stumbles onto an isolated farmhouse where he meets a kindly old man and a younger woman. Ollie and Margo welcome him and begin to nurse him back to health.

Margo’s healing attentions include a soft humming that seems to inspire vivid dreams of his long-dead wife. At night, those visions make Hank happier than he’s been in a long time. But what effect will the dreams have on his waking hours…?

Review: In the Garden of Rusting Gods by Patrick Freivald

Cover of In the Garden of Rusting GodsIn the Garden of Rusting Gods by Patrick Freivald
Barking Deer Press (September 2019)
210 pages; $14.95 paperback; $4.95 e-book
Reviewed by A.E. Siraki

Patrick Freivald has released a new short story collection from Barking Deer Press entitled In the Garden of Rusting Gods. An established novelist, Bram Stoker Award-nominee (and, with Andrew Wolter, winner of the Richard Laymon President’s Award in 2015), he writes horror for both young adult and adult audiences alike. His short fiction has mostly tended toward science fiction horror, which he excels at, so for readers wanting their fix, his collection will fit the bill. Continue Reading

Seasons of Terror
Shirley Jackson, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, and Robert McCammon

An Epic New Special Edition For Horror Collectors!

Hi Folks!

We’re very pleased to announce Seasons of Terror from the imaginations of Shirley Jackson, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, and Robert McCammon!

These four classic tales of terror are each set during a different season of the year, and the text has been adapted to graphic format by Richard Chizmar and lavishly illustrated by four of our favorite artists: Ray Fawkes, Dennis Calero, Francois Vaillancourt, and Steve Wands!

To celebrate this incredible publication, we’re planning an epic set of special editions with some features that are unprecedented in the 30+ year history of Cemetery Dance Publications — and the Artist Edition and Lettered Edition are already selling out fast due to higher than expected demand from the Cemetery Dance Collectors Club!

Kevin Lucia on Walking Lazarus — The Movie

The premise of my column “Revelations” is a reflection on fiction I encountered during a specific time in my career; fiction which changed the way I thought about horror, or influenced me in some way. The column has wandered from contemporary writers to masters of the genre, and it will at times wander off the “horror map” and into that hazy borderland of “speculative fiction.”

An author I’ll eventually feature is speculative fiction writer T. L. Hines, and how he shaped my thoughts about speculative fiction, most especially in terms of flawed characters, and how those flaws made those characters stronger. Today, however, I’m writing about Tony’s current project, and that’s his indie effort to bring his first novel, Waking Lazarus, to cinema lifeContinue Reading

Bev Vincent reviews It Chapter Two

Stephen King News From the Dead Zone

“We Are What We Wish We Could Forget”

aka

“Let’s Kill this Fucking Clown”

Let’s get this out of the way right up front. Yes, It Chapter Two is nearly three hours long. Did it feel like it? Not in the least. Because my phone was turned off during the press screening I attended on Tuesday evening, I had no sense of the passage of time, but I never felt the movie dragged. Not for a moment. I saw it on an IMAX screen, the first time I’ve seen anything on a screen that big in many years. It’s hard to say if it’s worth the premium, but the experience felt immersive to me.

The movie is R-rated, with good reason. It’s pretty darned scary, and very, very bad things happen to cute little kids. I admit, without reservation, that I was jolted into yelling out loud on at least a couple of occasions, which hardly ever happens to me. While the movie has more than its fair share of jump scares, it’s also tense, full of dread, and frightening.

It Chapter Two picks up exactly where we left off two years ago, with the young Losers in the aftermath of their battle with Pennywise, promising to come back if the killings in Derry, Maine start again.

Bev Vincent Reviews The Institute by Stephen King

Stephen King News From the Dead Zone

“Great Events Turn on Small Hinges”

When The Institute was announced in January, the book’s description had people wondering if it would have ties to Firestarter or the Dark Tower series. Kidnapping kids with psychic powers sounds like what happened to the Breakers at Algul Siento, and Charlie McGee underwent extensive testing at a compound run by the Shop to determine the range of her pyrokinesis.

Scribner hardcover

In fact, The Institute isn’t connected to those earlier works—or really to anything else in King’s work. The organization that runs the Institute in remote northern Maine (in TR-110, for those keeping track) isn’t the second coming of the Shop. The covert group has been operating for over sixty years. The kidnapped children, ranging from eight to sixteen years of age, aren’t being used to bring down the Beams supporting the Dark Tower. The one story that comes to mind when reading King’s latest is his 1997 novella “Everything’s Eventual,” which ultimately turned out to have Dark Tower implications, although that wasn’t clear at the time.

Four New Horror Movie Posters — Signed!

Four New Horror Movie Posters — Signed!
Including Trapped, based on a story by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar!

Hi Folks!

To celebrate Richard and Billy Chizmar’s horror movie projects that are in the works right now, we thought it might be fun to offer SIGNED posters for Gone, Trapped, and Murder House!

For those who don’t know, Trapped is based on a story idea by STEPHEN KING and RICHARD CHIZMAR, so this should make for a neat collectible down the road.

And we couldn’t decide which one to offer for Murder House because we like them both so much, so we’re offering both posters for that film!

Richard Chizmar and Billy Chizmar will be signing and numbering these posters, and we’re only accepting orders for a limited time only, so please don’t wait to place your order!

Review: Hellrider by J.G. Faherty

Hellrider by J.G. Faherty
Flame Tree Press (August 2019)
304 pages; $24.95 hardcover; $10.37 paperback
Reviewed by A.E. Siraki

Eddie Ryder is a reluctant protagonist who owns his departed father Big Eddie’s car garage, but it’s a burden he did not wish for. He used to be a member of a biker gang called the Hell Riders. On top of being repulsive in many ways, they’re also devoted to racism. Eddie still respects most of their code, not out of choice, but out of necessity and survival. Continue Reading

Review: Rattlesnake Kisses by Robert Ford

Rattlesnake Kisses by Robert Ford and John Boden
Apokrupha (July 2019)
216 pages; $12.99 paperback; $2.99 e-book
Reviewed by Kevin Lucia

This, it appears, is the summer of Robert Ford and John Boden. Both have other releases stirring up notice in the weird/horror world—Ford with his novel (co-written with Matt Hayward) A Penny for Your Thoughts, and Boden’s recent release, the weird western Walk the Darkness Down. At this point, it should come as no surprise that the authors of The Compound (Ford) and Jedi Summer (Boden) continue to produce high-quality horror/weird fiction. Because of this, one would expect that a story co-written by them would offer double-barrels of emotionally gut-wrenching fiction featuring empathetic-but-doomed characters in weird situations. Rest assured, Rattlesnake Kisses fulfills that expectation, and then some.Continue Reading
