About the Chapbook:
"I want to be buried at home. In the family plot. On the mainland."

Promises made. Promises kept. Promises broken...

In this haunting novellette, grieving widower Tim Moser finds that a wedding night vow isn't always easy to keep — especially when his wife's strong-willed father has other ideas. This atmospheric tale of dread explores family secrets and the strange traditions of an isolated community. It's sure to be an instant classic.
"Island Funeral" is a signed Limited Edition color cover chapbook by Cemetery Dance favorite Keith Minnion.

Note from the Publisher:
This chapbook has a color cover like Sepsis by Graham Masterton, Wetware by Kevin Quigley, Blood Splattered and Politically Incorrect, or Tales Too Extreme For Cemetery Dance, and is not part of the promotional chapbook line.

About the Author:
Keith Minnion sold his first short story to Asimov’s SF Adventure Magazine in 1979. Although not exactly the world’s most prolific writer, he has sold over a dozen stories and novelettes since. Keith illustrated for various magazine and book publishers from the early 1990s until his retirement from illustration work in 2010, and has also done extensive graphic design work for the Department of Defense, principally for the Naval Air Systems Command. He lives in an old house he is actively restoring in a small town in eastern Pennsylvania, USA. He is a former school teacher and officer in the U.S. Navy. His two grown children are, respectively, a middle-school math teacher and a chemical engineer, and Dad is incredibly proud of both of them. Keith has a short story collection called It's For You out in print from White Noise Press, and in all the electronic formats from Crossroad Press. On the horizon is a horror novel called The Bone Worms.

About the Artist:
Steven Gilberts has been producing fine art since 1981.  In 1995 he began displaying his work at science fiction and fantasy conventions.  In 2003 Steve made the jump into professional horror illustration starting with Space and Time Magazine. Steven and his lovely wife Becky live in a spooky Queen Ann cottage in a small Dunwich-esk village in Indiana. While hiding from the townsfolk, Steven concocts odd illustrations for a variety of publications including Cemetery Dance Publications.
