Cemetery Dance Publications Announces Sleeping Beauties (Special Edition) By Stephen King & Owen King

Cemetery Dance Publications is very pleased to announce their Deluxe Special Limited Edition of Stephen King and Owen King’s collaborative novel, Sleeping Beauties.

In this spectacular father/son collaboration, the authors tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men? In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place… The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain?

Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing father/son collaboration between Stephen King and Owen King.

The exclusive Cemetery Dance Special Limited Edition will be published in three states, all of them printed in two colors and bound in fine materials, and there will be no second printings.

The manuscript for this epic novel was more than 800 pages, so this will be one of the largest books CD has ever published. This will be a HUGE book in more ways than one considering it is also the first novel ever co-written by Stephen King and Owen King! We recommend you do not wait to place your order because we suspect most of the copies will be reserved in record time.

Cemetery Dance Announces The Shining: The Deluxe Special Edition By Stephen King

1

A Collectible Limited one time printing featuring an introduction by Stephen King, an afterword by Mick Garris and color paintings by Don Maitz.

This is the very first edition of The Shining published anywhere in the world to include Stephen King’s original, uncut 40 page prologue entitled “Before the Play” restored at its proper place at the beginning of the story. This may end up being the only edition to ever present the complete story of the Overlook Hotel as King originally wrote it, so don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Although an excerpt from the prologue appeared in TV Guide in the 1990s, this is the first time the complete prologue has ever appeared where Stephen King intended it to go — right at the beginning of The Shining!

About the Book:

The Overlook Hotel claimed the most beautiful physical setting of any resort in the world; but Jack Torrance, the new winter caretaker, with his wife Wendy and their five-year-old son Danny, saw much more than its splendor.

Jack saw the Overlook as an opportunity, a desperate way back from failure and despair; Wendy saw this lonely sanctuary as a frail chance to prerserve their family; and Danny? Danny, who was blessed or cursed with a shining, precognitive gift, saw visions hideously beyond the comprehension of a small boy. He sensed the evil coiled within the Overlook’s 110 empty rooms; an evil that was waiting just for them.

Special Features For This Deluxe Special Edition:

– An introduction by Stephen King
– An afterword by Mick Garris
– Includes the complete text of “Before the Play,” Stephen King’s 40 page prologue that has never appeared in any edition of The Shining
– Deluxe oversized design (7 inches X 10 inches) featuring two color interior printing as part of the page design
– Printed on a heavy interior specialty paper stock that is much thicker than the paper in a normal trade edition
– Custom-made slipcase for the Gift Edition, custom-made traycase for the Numbered Artist Edition, and custom-made three piece traycase for the Deluxe Lettered Artist Edition
– Epic wrap-around full color dust jacket artwork by Don Maitz
– A different full color dust jacket for the Numbered Artist Edition painted by Don Maitz
– Full color interior paintings by Don Maitz
– Interior artwork will be printed on a heavy glossy stock and tipped into the book
– Special limitation page artwork for all three editions by Glenn Chadbourne
– High-quality endpapers and fine bindings
– Extremely collectible print run that is a tiny fraction of the tens of millions of copies of this novel you’ve seen in bookstores over the years!

Published in three states:

Slipcased Oversized Hardcover Gift Edition of only 3,000 copies printed in two colors on a specialty paper stock; bound with a fine binding, two color hot foil stamping, and embossed endpapers; and featuring a unique black-and-white limitation page with artwork by Glenn Chadbourne ($95)

Traycased Oversized Hardcover Numbered Artist Edition signed by the artist and limited to only 750 hand-numbered copies printed in two colors on a specialty paper stock; bound with a different fine binding, two color hot foil stamping, and full color illustrated endpapers; a full-color signature sheet featuring artwork by Glenn Chadbourne; and housed in a traycase ($275)

Cemetery Dance Publications Invites You To Visit Stephen King Revisited

StephenKingRevisited

Cemetery Dance Publications invites readers everywhere to the launch of StephenKingRevisited.com, a massive new project unlike anything the horror and suspense publisher has undertaken in their twenty-five years in publishing.

Starting this Halloween, Cemetery Dance founder and publisher Richard Chizmar will begin re-reading ALL of Stephen King’s books in the order of publication, starting with Carrie, and posting his thoughts about the experience.

“Like many longtime readers,” Chizmar explains in his first post on the site, “I can chart the course of my life by when and where I read most of Stephen King’s books. Re-reading Christine recently (when writing an afterword for an anniversary edition) inspired the project was like traveling back to my youth in a time machine.  I turned the pages, and I was a teenager again, carrying around a tattered, old paperback.  Experiencing the novel for the first time. It felt like a kind of magic.  And I wanted to do it again.”

When Chizmar asked Stephen King what he thought of the idea of him re-reading all of the books in order, King replied, “You should blog about it” and “go for it!”

After each re-read, Chizmar will post his thoughts on StephenKingRevisited.com.  Readers are encouraged to read along and share their own thoughts, including their memories of where they were when they first read each book.

For readers who are interested in behind the scenes information about King’s unprecedented career, author Bev Vincent will be writing a historical context post for each title, including insightful anecdotes about the writing and publication history of the book.

In addition, special guest contributors who are well known to Stephen King readers will be providing their own take on the books.  Some of the first guest contributors include Michael Koryta (author of So Cold the River and Those Who Wish to Kill Me), Josh Boone (director and writer of the films The Fault in Our Stars, Stuck in Love, and two forthcoming Stephen King projects, Lisey’s Story and The Stand), and Jack Ketchum (author of The Lost, The Woman, and I’m Not Sam).

Stephen King Revisited can be found at StephenKingRevisited.com and Cemetery Dance Publications can be followed on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
