Out Now #4

So then, another anthology recently released … this chilling and beautifully published book courtesy of those fine folks at Cemetery Dance. Take a look:

SHIVERS VII. Edited by Richard Chizmar. Cemetery Dance Publications.

“Cemetery Dance Publications is proud to announce the seventh entry in this award-nominated and best-selling anthology series! In addition to the affordable trade paperback edition for general readers, this volume will also be published as a signed Limited Edition hardcover and a signed and traycased Lettered Edition hardcover, both of which will signed by the editor for the collectors!

“Shivers VII contains more than 100,000 words of chilling fiction from more than two dozen of today’s most popular authors of horror and suspense including Stephen King, Clive Barker, Graham Masterton, Ed Gorman, Bill Pronzini, Lisa Tuttle, Kaaron Warren, Del James, Lisa Morton, Roberta Lannes, Scott Nicholson, Bev Vincent, Brian James Freeman, Norman Prentiss, and many others.

“Of special note to collectors: “Weeds” by Stephen King was originally published in Cavalier magazine in May 1976 and in Nugget magazine in April 1979, but has not been reprinted since, although it was adapted as “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill” for Creepshow in 1982. “The Departed” by Clive Barker was originally published as “Hermione and the Moon” in The New York Times on October 30, 1992.

“Featuring original dark fiction with a handful of rare reprints, Shivers VII is available only from Cemetery Dance Publications.”

Yeah, I’m one of the “many others,” and I’m delighted to be on the undercard of so many talented writers, including a couple of unstoppable heavyweights. My story—and one I’m particularly proud of—is called, “Depth.” It’s about a man who mentally unravels after buying a painting that is purportedly cursed, and who must uncover its dark truth if he ever hopes to live a normal life again.

As it says above, Shivers VII is available only from Cemetery Dance. I believe the collector’s editions have sold out, but the trade paperback is readily available. Just click on the link below.
