Stephen King If It Bleeds To Be Released On May 5, 2020

From #1 New York Times bestselling author, legendary storyteller, and master of short fiction Stephen King comes an extraordinary collection of four new and compelling novellas—Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, The Life of Chuck, Rat, and the title story If It Bleeds—each pulling readers into intriguing and frightening places. 

The novella is a form King has returned to over and over again in the course of his amazing career, and many have been made into iconic films, including “The Body” (Stand By Me) and “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” (Shawshank Redemption). Like Four Past Midnight, Different Seasons, and most recently Full Dark, No Stars, If It Bleeds is a uniquely satisfying collection of longer short fiction by an incomparably gifted writer.

Suntup Editions To Publish Fine Press Limited Edition of I Am Legend By Richard Matheson

Suntup Editions, publisher of fine limited edition books and art prints, is delighted to announce the upcoming publication of Richard Matheson’s novel I Am Legend, featuring illustrations by Award Winning artist Allen Williams.

“This may be the most terrifying novel you will ever read.” This quote from mystery writer William Campbell Gault graced the first edition cover of what would become one of the most influential and adapted works of the 20th century. Originally published in 1954, Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend ushered in a different kind of novel, defying and transcending genre to combine elements of horror and science fiction within a post-apocalyptic frame.

I Am Legend is the story of Robert Neville, who appears to be the sole survivor of a pandemic that has turned the human race into a crossbreed of zombies and vampires. Robert must hunt by day, hide by night, and most importantly, survive.  

In 2012, the Horror Writers Association gave I Am Legend the special Vampire Novel of the Century Award. The novel and Richard Matheson are often credited for creating the zombie-vampire genre. 

Lettered Edition 

The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is a full goatskin binding featuring a handcrafted wooden stake affixed to the cover which is laser engraved with the title. The spine is foil stamped, and endsheets are hand marbled on acid free Fabriano Ingres. The edition is printed letterpress on Hahnemühle Biblio mould-made paper, with a deckled fore edge. Title, chapter and section pages are printed with an additional spot color, and the edition is housed in a half-leather clamshell enclosure with a marbled paper cover. (Sold Out)

Numbered Edition

The Numbered edition of 250 copies is an elegant quarter vellum binding with Hahnemühle paper boards and foil stamping on the cover and spine. The classic, understated design is composed in such a way as to blend with the interior typography, which is printed letterpress on Teton paper with a deckled fore edge. Title, chapter and section pages are printed with an additional spot color, and the edition is housed in a unique cloth and paper covered slipcase. Each copy is bound by hand. $695

Artist Gift Edition

Signed by Allen Williams, the Artist Gift edition is limited to 1000 copies and features a dust jacket with wrap-around artwork.

Hingston & Olsen Publishing Announces Ghost Box III Featuring Stories By Poppy Z. Brite, Dennis Etchison, Richard Matheson And David J. Schow

There’s no use trying to run from Ghost Box III, the terrifying conclusion to Hingston & Olsen’s series of limited-edition horror box sets edited and introduced by Patton Oswalt.

Ghost Box III once again contains a range of scary stories, from classics to modern frights:

– Gertrude Atherton, “The Foghorn”
– Charles Beaumont, “The Vanishing American”
– Poppy Z. Brite, “Bayou de la Mere”
– Dennis Etchison, “It Only Comes Out at Night”
– Fritz Leiber, “A Defense of Werewolves”
– Livia Llewellyn, “It Feels Better Biting Down”
– Richard Matheson, “The Distributor”
– Saki, “Sredni Vashtar”
– David J. Schow, “Last Call for the Sons of Shock”
– Terence Taylor, “WET PAIN”
– James Tiptree, Jr., “The Psychologist Who Wouldn’t Do Awful Things to Rats”

“There are relics to remind you of the oblique, subterranean terrors we used to wink at for fleshy thrills,” writes Oswalt in his introduction. “There are also immediate bulletins from our fracturing reality that make the old ghosts start in fear from the monster masks we’ve allowed to meld to our skin these past few years.”

Just like the first two instalments (both of which are now sold out), Ghost Box III is available in a one-time print run. The deluxe clamshell box includes an iridescent, colour-shifting ink foil, a ribbon bookmark, and a magnetized lid.

To celebrate the end of this spooky trilogy, we’re also proud to announce 100 copies of an extra limited-edition version of Ghost Box III. These copies feature a special rainbow holographic foil on the box, and are signed and hand-numbered by Oswalt.

Ghost Box III is available exclusively at www.hingstonandolsen.com, while supplies last.

Suntup Editions Announces Covers Collection Gerald’s Game Print By Rob Wood

This month, Suntup Editions reveals their fifth print from artist Rob Wood. Previously, they published Rob’s artwork from Needful Things, Nightmares and Dreamscapes, Four Past Midnight, and Dolores Claiborne. Now, Suntup is offering Rob’s beautiful art from the first edition of Gerald’s Game as our latest addition to The Covers Collection.

Gerald’s Game was the 31st book published by Stephen King, originally released in May 1992. The novel, along with the author’s other 1992 release, Dolores Claiborne, was originally conceived as part of a larger work to be entitled, In the Path of the Eclipse.

To create the visual required for the first edition cover art, Rob Wood built a faux bedroom set inside his home. After playing with several additional elements to help explain the story – alternate bed posts depicting two bodies entwined, a window in the background indicating the possibility of escape — the artist decided on a more simplistic approach. The cover would consist of only a bed with an ominous set of handcuffs hanging off the bedpost. As a result, this startling image became one of the most iconic in Stephen King cover history.

These prints are hand-signed by Rob Wood, who has also created two incredible Remarques which appear on the first 20 large prints. Six of these are available for purchase at the time of the release, so act fast on those. Remarques are allocated randomly.

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

– Museum Quality Giclée prints.
– Signed and authorized by the original cover artist.
– Limited to only 50 copies of each size worldwide, plus 3 Artist Proofs and – 3 Publisher Proofs for private distribution.
– Shipped with a Certificate of Limitation and Authenticity from the publisher.
– Printed on 300 GSM, 100% cotton paper that is Acid-Free, Lignin-Free, Chlorine-Free and with No Optical Brighteners.
– Prints are embossed with the publisher’s mark.
– Release Date: October 1, 2019
