We’re pleased to report we’ll be publishing Brendan Deneen’s acclaimed novel The Chrysalis as a signed Limited Edition hardcover with a very small print run for our collectors!

Although this is a brand new novel, the story is kind of a throwback to the horror of the 1970s and 1980s, and the tag line tells you exactly what kind of horror to expect:

The Long Way Home by Richard Chizmar: New Special Edition Trade Paperback Coming Soon!

We’re pleased to report we’ll be publishing a very special trade paperback edition of The Long Way Home by Richard Chizmar next month!

The first 1,000 copies of this trade paperback edition will have deckled edges and “French Flaps,” two special production features we’ve never offered on any title before. After these copies are gone, the second printing and beyond will use a more traditional look and feel!

About the Book:
Gathered here for the first time ever are seventeen short stories, two essays, and a short script by award-winning and New York Times bestselling author, Richard Chizmar.

Eerie, suspenseful, poignant, the stories inThe Long Way Home run the gamut from horror to suspense, crime to dark fantasy, mainstream to mystery. This brand new collection features more than 100,000 words of short fiction, as well as more than 5,000 words of autobiographical Story Notes.

Chizmar’s previous short story collection, A Long December, was published in 2016 to starred reviews from Library Journal and Kirkus, and was included on numerous “Best Books of the Year” lists. Entertainment Weekly gave the book high praise: “Each tale is a magic trick, luring you toward the light while leading you down an ever-darkening path. There is hope mingled with horror, and that’s Chizmar’s secret power. His storytelling always beats with a huge, passionate heart.”

Stephen King says he writes “terrific stories served with a very large slice of Disquiet Pie,” and with The Long Way Home, Richard Chizmar has taken his evocative and compelling storytelling to an entirely new level.

A Game in the Sun and Other Stories by John Coyne: New Signed Limited Edition In-Stock & Shipping!

We’re very pleased to report that A Game in the Sun and Other Stories by John Coyne is now in-stock and ready to ship!

About the Book:
John Coyne is the author of 25 books of fiction and non-fiction, including a bestseller, The Legacy, which was also a successful film starring Sam Elliott. His short stories have been included in several “best of” anthologies, such as Modern Masters of Horror and The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror.

• Betsy was no longer listening. She had closed her eyes and was leaning back in the lawn chair, resting. She knew she must not begin to cry in front of these people. She must not be vulnerable…

• Michael remembered clearly the first piece of fungus: a thin, irregular patch twelve inches wide, grayish, like the color of candle grease, growing on the new pine wall of the bathroom.

• He was leaning over the top section of the cow barn door, shooting his new pump-gun at tin cans in the barnyard, and watching the sun clear the rows of corn stubs on the horizon, when the first cry of the cow came down to him on the morning breeze.

• It began with Father Sweeney leaning into Matt’s face, with both hands braced against the desk, speaking in his deliberately condescending way, telling Matt once, and then again—never raising his voice, letting his words work like a butcher’s knife across the boy’s sense of self—that he wanted what Matt Garrity was hiding between his legs and he wanted it now!

The Institute by Stephen King: As psychically terrifying as Firestarter with the spectacular kid power of It!

We’re very pleased to report we will be receiving copies of Stephen King’s incredible new novel, The Institute! We will also be producing one of our beautiful aftermarket slipcases for this Scribner hardcover, and those slipcases will ship separately from the books, so you won’t have to wait to read King’s new epic novel!

About the Book:
In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
