The Best of Cemetery Dance: Volume Two will showcase the very finest short stories from Cemetery Dance magazine, picking up where the acclaimed and award-winning first “Best of” volume left off!
For those Stephen King fans out there who want to read one of his earliest published short stories, this massive anthology concludes with his short story “The Glass Floor,” which was originally published in Startling Mystery Stories in 1967 and marked King’s first professional sale, earning him $35! We reprinted this one in Cemetery Dance a few years ago and are very pleased to be able to include it in The Best of Cemetery Dance: Volume Two with an introduction by Stephen King that appeared in Weird Tales way back in 1990!
Featuring a virtual “who’s who” of today’s greatest authors of dark fiction, The Best of Cemetery Dance: Volume Two will be one of the most important anthologies published this year. Just a handful of the contributors include Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Peter Straub, Bentley Little, Michael Marshall Smith, Ray Garton, Jack Ketchum, Douglas Clegg, Poppy Z. Brite, Joe R. Lansdale, Nancy A. Collins, Peter Crowther, Norman Partridge, Ed Gorman, William F. Nolan, F. Paul Wilson, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Simon Clark, Richard Christian Matheson, David J. Schow, Stewart O’Nan, Glen Hirshberg, Ramsey Campbell, and dozens of others!
Cemetery Dance magazine has been published for more than thirty years now, and is the winner of the World Fantasy Award and the International Horror Critics Guild Award, as well as a nominee for both the British Fantasy Award and the American Horror Award. Don’t miss what’s sure to be one of the most talked about anthologies of the year!
