Chart of Darkness by Kevin Quigley: Surprise In-Stock Limited Edition Already 90% Sold Out!

We’re extremely pleased to announce we’re publishing Chart of Darkness by Kevin Quigley as a “surprise in-stock” Limited Edition, and thanks to the booming market for all things Stephen King, this special edition is already 90% sold out!

About the Book:
Stephen King’s unprecedented career has yielded him more than thirty #1 New York Times bestselling books. He is the only writer to have ever reached the top slot of that list in five different decades. And in 1996, the Times changed their policies regarding bestsellers because King had too many at the same time. But how did it all happen? And why?

From Stephen King expert Kevin Quigley comes a fascinating journey through King’s unprecedented career by way of the charts that helped define it. Chart of Darkness is the first book that navigates King’s popular success through the odd and tempestuous world of The New York Times Bestsellers List.

What was King’s first novel to hit #1? (Hint: It wasn’t Carrie.) What happened when King went up against Harry Potter, and how did the showdown end? How did Joyland break King’s decade-long streak of no #1 paperbacks?

It’s all charted here in a fun, narrative look at the sweep of Stephen King’s amazing body of work!

Dissonant Harmonies by Bev Vincent and Brian Keene: New Surprise In-Stock Trade Paperback!

Dissonant Harmonies
by Bev Vincent and Brian Keene

New Surprise In-Stock Trade Paperback!

We’re extremely pleased to announce we’re publishing the world’s first trade paperback edition of Dissonant Harmonies by Bev Vincent and Brian Keene, and our copies will be arriving this week, so this is a “surprise in-stock” announcement!

About the Book:
Inspired by specially curated mixtapes, Bev Vincent and Brian Keene present two new spine-chilling novellas…

As a blizzard descends upon the sleepy town of Bayport, Rhode Island, brothers Joey and Frank Shaw investigate the mysterious disappearances of several townsfolk. After the discovery of strange tunnels, tunnels that only Joey can see, the trio suspect something is lurking beneath the snowbound town. Something burrowing. Something hungry. And it looks like Joey might be next in The Dead of Winter.

Did you imagine the world vanishing to a flood or a comet, the hand of God or nuclear war? What if it started with something as innocuous as the Berenstain Bears, and something known as the Mandela Effect? Barricaded in a seedy motel room, one man makes sense of love, loss, and life as the end of the world looms. Do you see what he sees? Do you know what he knows?

Special Note for Readers:
There’s a Spotify playlist featuring many of the songs that inspired this book. The first 24 tracks are the songs Bev Vincent gave to Brian Keene (plus his B-sides), although there are a few substitutions because not all the songs Bev Vincent picked are on Spotify. The last 16 tracks are the ones Brian Keene sent to Bev Vincent.

The Fade by James Cooper: Surprise New Release Shipping Soon!

Meet Philip: a young boy with a desire to self-destruct. His family thinks he’s a monster, but that’s okay. Monsters are usually destroyed in the final act, and Philip knows that’s exactly how he’ll end up. A pale corpse, rotting in the wind…

Hilary Bunce feels like a monster, too. His dysfunctional family is unbearable, turning him into a shadow of the man he really is, lost and afraid, with little awareness of the emerging horror he is about to confront.

The world isn’t designed for people like Philip and Hilary. That’s why they each like to visit the Fade, an empty landscape of desert and rolling hills that seems to float beyond existence itself, accessible to only a privileged few, where all the world’s misery and loneliness dissolves.

But the Fade is not as empty or as isolated as it appears. A tall, thin man named Pappy stalks the desert carrying a large burlap sack. His job is to clean up the Fade. He lives in a grey house on top of a hill, eternally watchful, forever alert. And he will do whatever it takes to rid his kingdom of disease…

Billy Summers
by Stephen King

A Brand New Novel About A Killer For Hire!

Stephen King’s JUST ANNOUNCED new novel is called Billy Summers, and it concerns a killer for hire who is the best in the business, but he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first, there is one last hit…

Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

Part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, Billy Summers features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in Stephen King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

  • Keepsakes: PI. Koko Tate pays his mom a visit on Mother’s Day.
  • Too Short A Death: A modern-day poet meets the long-deceased Weldon Kees’s greatest literary creation.
  • Eater: The cops at an off-the-beaten-track late-night precinct house have got more than they bargained for in one of the cells.
  • Sitting Pretty: An armchair fashioned out of the wood from the original cross provides a comfort of sorts down the ages.
  • Dark Times: Two old men tamper with the dark arts and open a gateway that threatens the destructions of the world.
  • Jewels in the Dust: A couple jaded with their life together are visited by their collective histories.
  • And, in Songs of Leaving, the imminent impact of a county-sized piece of space debris brings to the remnants of humanity a multitude of old friends to witness the fall of mankind.
