Cemetery Dance Publications is launching the Halloween season with brand new books by 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, a bunch of King offerings. Just announced is the Cemetery Dance deluxe special edition of the author’s new book, FULL DARK, NO STARS, which will also be published as a trade hardcover by Scribner on November 9. Cemetery Dance has brought together a team of five acclaimed artists to create nearly 20 exclusive illustrations for this special edition, including black and white pieces and glossy color tip-ins. 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 is THE SECRETARY OF DREAMS (Volume Two) by King, an exclusive oversized and slipcased collectible special edition hardcover that isn’t available in stores. The book features classic tales of terror from 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 King and Mick Garris. This special edition “double book” is being published by Lonely Road Books, which is distributed by Cemetery Dance, and the volume features the complete original novella by King and screenplay by Garris (who directed the film adaptation); artwork by CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF’s Bernie Wrightson; a unique design with two-color printing throughout; color wraparound 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 King, his long lost novella (filmed in CREEPSHOW) 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 deals with the backstory of Straub’s acclaimed A DARK MATTER.
Speaking of Straub, Cemetery Dance has more good news for his fans. Shipping right now is a special hardcover edition of Straub’s 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. This Cemetery Dance special edition sold out within four hours of being announced, and King called the book “your basic don’t-miss reading experience.”
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, and more than 10,000 readers downloaded the book and spread the word. The eBook is currently WOWIO.com’s Free eBook of the Month. The Cemetery Dance hardcover edition of THE PAINTED DARKNESS will be the book’s first print edition.
