Suntup Editions Covers Edition Salem’s Lot: Now Available for Pre-Order

Suntup Editions is pleased to present Salem’s Lot by Dave Christensen. This artwork appeared on the 1st edition of Salem’s Lot, published in 1975. On the cover, the painting was very small. It measured just over 1 1/2″ wide and about 2 1/2″ tall. Now for the first time, you can experience this iconic painting at a size you have never seen before.

Suntup was fortunate to have obtained a scan of the original painting, and in this one-of-a-kind reproduction, you can see the smallest of details, down to the brush strokes!

A must-have for King fans, especially if you’re a fan of ‘Salem’s Lot. These prints are hand-signed by Dave Christensen, and the first 20 include an original Remarque, most of which are already pre-sold to print subscribers.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 signed copies per size, worldwide.

The IT Experience, A Pop-Up Haunted House In Hollywood Based On The Stephen King Novel

The IT Experience,” a new pop-up haunted house at Hollywood and Vine, offers fans of Stephen King’s classic 1986 novel IT a chance to step into the world of Pennywise the clown. The haunted house is for fans 18 and over, and comes ahead of the film adaptation, which opens September 8.

Walking into the Niebolt House, named for the abandoned house where the Loser’s Club first encounters Pennywise in the novel, guests will be able to experience “where IT lives” as they are guided by Georgie, whose wayward paper sailboat sets the story in motion in the book and film, through the 5,000-square-foot house as they venture from room to room through immersive sets inspired by scenes from the film with authentic props.

In groups of seven, visitors will form their own Loser’s Club as they traverse the haunted lair of the murderous entity known as It for a 20-minute experience encountering pneumatic surprises, live actors, holographic images and animatronic beings.

The IT Experience will be open daily from Aug. 14 through Sept. 10 at Hollywood Blvd. and Vine St. in Hollywood.

Cemetery Dance To Publish Night Shift: The Deluxe Special Edition By Stephen King

This new book of stories from the author of Carrie, The Shining, and ‘Salem’s Lot is a chilling collection of strange imaginings, ghoulish twists, and diabolical terror. Stephen King, a modern master of the macabre, has brought together nineteen of his most unsettling short pieces—bizarre tales of dark doings and unthinkable acts from the twilight regions where horror and madness take on eerie, unearthly forms… where noises in the walls and shadows by the bed are always signs of something dreadful on the prowl.

The settings are familiar and unsuspected—a high school, a factory, a truck stop, a laundry, a field of Nebraska corn. But in Stephen King’s world and place can serve as devil’s ground… if the time of night is propitious and the forces of darkness are strong, and the victims are caught just slightly off guard.

In the ominous, frightening world of Stephen King there are things unimagined, almost unspeakable, working the Night Shift:

– Strange presences in Jerusalem’s Lot, a town abandoned for generations—and with good reason. No one who wanders there now, after the sun has set, ever comes back alive…

– And the hideous growths on the hands of a former astronaut—tiny round and yellow eyes popping through the skin, watching him, not liking what they see…

– And the mysterious little girl lost in a fierce Maine blizzard, calling out to her rescuers in a pitiful voice. But she walks on top of the deep, drifting snow—and she leaves no tracks…

– And the grim-faced children in a Midwest town where no one seems to live past the age of nineteen…
– And the vermin in the second sub-celler of the old mill—abandoned to darkness for a hundred years and now assuming shapes and sizes nature never intended them to take…

– And the giant folding and steam pressing machine in the Blue Ribbon Laundry—an impressive and reliable piece of equipment, until it got its first taste of human blood…

Special Features For This Deluxe Special Edition:

– A foreword by Stephen King
– An introduction by John D. MacDonald
– A brand new afterword by Stewart O’Nan
– Deluxe oversized design (7 inches X 10 inches) featuring two color interior printing
– Printed on a heavy interior specialty paper stock
