NEW HALLOWEEN HORRORS FROM STEPHEN KING AND CEMETERY DANCE PUBLICATIONS:
BALTIMORE Cemetery Dance Publications is launching the Halloween season with brand new books by horror legends Stephen King, Peter Straub, and Justin Cronin, plus the world's first hardcover edition of the Internet eBook sensation The Painted Darkness by Brian James Freeman.
First up, Cemetery Dance has a little bit of everything for Stephen King fans this fall:
Just announced is the Cemetery Dance deluxe special edition of King's new book, Full Dark, No Stars, which will also be published as a trade hardcover by Scribner on November 9, 2010. The tales in Full Dark, No Stars are bleak, featuring some of the darkest moments of any King work in recent memory, and Cemetery Dance brought together a team of five acclaimed artists to create
nearly twenty exclusive illustrations for this special edition including black and white pieces and glossy color tip-ins. This fine collectible volume will be printed in two colors on a high-quality paper. This deluxe special edition, which will not be sold in stores, will ship just in time for the holidays in December.
Shipping now from Cemetery Dance Publications is The Secretary of Dreams (Volume Two) by Stephen King, an exclusive oversized and slipcased collectible special edition hardcover that is not available in stores. This beautiful book features classic tales of terror from the mind of Stephen King combined with the haunting artwork of Maine artist Glenn Chadbourne. This deluxe special edition has a very limited print run and there are no plans at this time for it to be reprinted in any other form.
Shipping just in time for Halloween will be Riding the Bullet by Stephen King and Mick Garris. This special edition "double book" is being published by Lonely Road Books, which is distributed by Cemetery Dance, and the striking volume features the complete original novella by King and screenplay by Garris; creepy artwork by Bernie Wrightson; a unique design with two color printing throughout; color wrap-around cover artwork and color interiors by Alan M. Clark; plus exclusive storyboards, photos from the set, production notes, hand-corrected script pages, and more from the
Top Secret "Director's Notebook" kept during the production.
Also shipping next month will be Shivers VI, an anthology that features "The Crate" by Stephen King, his long lost novella that has never appeared in any of his collections, and "A Special Place: The Heart of A Dark Matter" by Peter Straub, a novella that is "creepy to the core" and "shines a terrible light on the back story of Straub's acclaimed A Dark Matter" according to the coveted Starred Review from Publishers Weekly.
Speaking of Peter Straub, Cemetery Dance has more good news for his fans. Shipping right now is a special hardcover edition of Straub's haunting Halloween tale, Pork Pie Hat, the story of a legendary jazz legend who witnessed a terrible event as a child in the forbidden woods outside of town and now must face the demons of his past one last time.
Also coming soon from Cemetery Dance this fall is a deluxe Special Edition of The Passage by Justin Cronin, one of the hottest horror novels of the last decade. This Cemetery Dance special edition sold out within four hours of being announced, and Stephen King called the book "your basic don't-miss
Finally, Cemetery Dance will be publishing a trade hardcover edition of The Painted Darkness by Brian James Freeman, which took the Internet by storm this summer as part of a unique marketing experiment. Freeman and Cemetery Dance posted the entire text of the book for free on a promotional website, www.DownloadTheDarkness, and more than 10,000 readers downloaded the book and spread the word about this chilling tale that New York Times bestselling author Stewart O'Nan compared to "classic Stephen King."
The eBook is currently WOWIO.com's Free eBook of the Month, where thousands of new readers are discovering it. In fact, The Painted Darkness became the all-time bestselling Free eBook of the Month at WOWIO just two weeks after it was posted. The Cemetery Dance hardcover edition of The Painted Darkness will be the book's first print edition.
