We are very pleased to report Publishers Weekly has awarded Shivers VI a highly sought-after Starred Review! Very few books receive one of these, so it’s a huge deal to the booksellers and distributors — it really makes the book standout in the marketplace!
What does this mean for our collectors and general readers? Well, we were already down to less than 100 copies left of the second printing, and these copies are FLYING out the door as booksellers and librarians grab whatever copies they can of this acclaimed anthology. We have not yet decided if we’re going to do athird printing, and the turn-around time will be about six weeks if we did decide to print more copies, so we recommend you don’t wait. Place your order today so you don’t miss out!
Here is that incredible review:
“Stephen King tops the list with “The Crate,” a darkly funny monster-on-the rampage tale rarely reprinted since its first publication in 1979. Lisa Tuttle’s “Bits and Pieces” is a deft and disturbing fantasia on the battle of the sexes, and Peter Straub’s novella “A Special Place: The Heart of a Dark Matter” is a grim tale whose stand-alone incarnation was named one of 2010’s best books by PW. The other 18 stories, which include work by Glen Hirshberg, Melanie Tem, Brian Hodge, and David B. Silva, run the gamut from supernatural terror to psychological suspense, and from subtle dark fantasy to violence and gore. The uniformly high quality of writing makes this volume a must for any horror fan.”
