Torie Christopher was a member of the Maine aristocracy, reckless and willful, wed to a blue-blooded doctor, and enjoying all the pleasures and privileges of wealth and position. Joe Nevers was of the working class, married to a woman determined to keep him in his place, and with only his rock-hard strength and unbending pride to depend on for dignity. Now, in a night filled with all the phantoms of the past and all the shifting shapes of love, Torie and Joe have to strip bare the truth about themselves and their lives… for they share secrets no one else knows…

Cemetery Dance Publications Announces Signed Limited Edition of Strange Weather By Joe Hill 

Strange Weather represents a major Cemetery Dance Publications special event! These four short novels by #1 New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill will be published as four individual hardcover special editions housed together in a custom-made slipcase. Each volume will feature artwork by a different artist personally selected by the author to bring his vision to life and we’ll be unveiling their covers over the next few months! We’ve never published anything like this before and due to Joe Hill’s incredible popularity we expect these sets to sell very quickly.

These set collects four original and chilling novels, ingeniously wrought gems of terror by Joe Hill, the brilliantly imaginative, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman.

Snapshot will feature artwork by Gabriel Rodríguez
Rain will feature artwork by Ray Dillon
Loaded will feature artwork by Zach Howard
Aloft will feature artwork by Charles Paul Wilson III

“Snapshot” is the disturbing story of a Silicon Valley adolescent who finds himself threatened by “The Phoenician,” a tattooed thug who possesses a Polaroid Instant Camera that erases memories, snap by snap.

A young man takes to the skies to experience his first parachute jump… and winds up a castaway on an impossibly solid cloud, a Prospero’s island of roiling vapor that seems animated by a mind of its own in “Aloft.”

On a seemingly ordinary day in Boulder, Colorado, the clouds open up in a downpour of nails—splinters of bright crystal that shred the skin of anyone not safely under cover. “Rain” explores this escalating apocalyptic event, as the deluge of nails spreads out across the country and around the world.

In “Loaded,” a mall security guard in a coastal Florida town courageously stops a mass shooting and becomes a hero to the modern gun rights movement. But under the glare of the spotlights, his story begins to unravel, taking his sanity with it. When an out-of-control summer blaze approaches the town, he will reach for the gun again and embark on one last day of reckoning.

Masterfully exploring classic literary themes through the prism of the supernatural, Strange Weather is a stellar collection from one of the most vibrant imaginations working in horror today.

Published as a Signed Limited Edition Set of four separate hardcovers housed in a slipcase:

– Limited to just 948 signed, slipcased, and numbered copies
– Snapshot will be personally signed by Joe Hill on a unique signature page; all four volumes will be signed by their respective artists

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
– Custom-made slipcase
– Wrap-around full color dust jacket artwork by Mark Stutzman
– Twenty black and white interior illustrations by Chris Odgers
– Signature sheet artwork by Glenn Chadbourne
– High-quality endpapers and fine bindings
– Limited to 3,000 copies

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.
