"Stephen King’s story is called "Summer Thunder" and it just might be one of the most heartbreaking post-apocalyptic tales we’ve ever read."
We're pleased to announce a Top Secret surprise addition to our December publication slate, Turn Down the Lights edited by Richard Chizmar, and the trade hardcover edition is already rolling at the printer!
This brand new anthology features original horror stories by Stephen King, Norman Partridge, Jack Ketchum, Brian James Freeman, Bentley Little, Ed Gorman, Ronald Kelly, Steve Rasnic Tem, Clive Barker, and Peter Straub that capture the genuine love of the genre that pushes Cemetery Dance Publications forward year after year.
This exciting new anthology will be published in three states including a trade hardcover for general readers (shipping in December) and two special hardcover editions for serious collectors (shipping in 2014), but there are no other versions planned at this time, so don't wait around because we have no idea how long these might last!
