After a slight delay, The Wicked is now available. The delay was due to the fake price sticker on the back. The printer didn't like another bar code on the cover, even though it was fake. So we had to change that. You can see them both here (http://i537.photobucket.com/albums/ff338/ShockTotem/wicked_full.jpg) and here (http://i537.photobucket.com/albums/ff338/ShockTotem/wicked_full2.jpg).

Anyway, here is the official announcement:

Shock Totem Publications is pleased to announce that our first non-magazine release, James Newman's (http://southernslick.blogspot.com) fantastic ode to 1980s horror, The Wicked, is now available for purchase.

As previously noted (http://www.shocktotem.com/04/06/2012/shock-totem-gets-wicked), The Wicked has been revised by the author, expanded with a new foreword by Mark Allan Gunnells, a new afterword by the author, and brilliant new artwork and illustrations by Jesse David Young (http://www.jessedavidyoung.com) (with additional cover layout by Yannick Bouchard (http://illusorydreams.com)). Also included is a brand new, exclusive tie-in short story written specifically for this release.

The book is currently available through our website (http://www.shocktotem.com/print) and Amazon.com as a trade paperback for $14.99 (http://amzn.com/0615419003) and as an e-book for $4.99 (http://amzn.com/B00838YGVU). We will keep you updated as it becomes more widely available through other retailers in the coming days and weeks.

A lot of hard work went into this release. We think you'll dig it very much.
