    Just a quick update, this is headed to the printer real soon. Which means the THC should be out in January or February. The Limited Edition will be a bit longer as we'll have to get a slipcase produced.

    Hmm, I guess I don't watch enough TV, 'cause I've never seen or heard of Gayle King

And then the other set of sheets that disappeared into that person's house and a friend had to stage a literal intervention to get them back... Ugh... So. Many. Problems.)

    There are a few more authors we can circle back to who might be able to sign, IF there is a time... I'd like to try, but I also know folks would rather we just cut bait and send to the printer and I do understand that...

These sheets have been on a serious journey, I think they've been circulating for maybe 3+ years. I can't remember all of the problems we had as my brain can't keep the sheets for these separate from the sheets for Best of Shivers, which has been circulating for nearly as long, and had all sorts of problems too.

    I saw Stewart O'nan had signed that page also.

    Yep! Last author before Richard is signing, and then Richard signs at his desk here in the office, and then we're off to the printer!

    As we had posted over the years, we weren't going to "re-announce" the book publicly as The Best of Cemetery Dance 2 until we were reasonably sure it could go to the printer that same year.

    We're thrilled to report the first two sets of signature sheets are DONE and back home in the CD offices, and the third set of sheets are with the final author and will be headed back here very soon, at which point Richard Chizmar will sign them and the book will be ready for the printer!

    Okay, here is my annual (well this time 13+ month) inquiry regarding the status of this volume. Can you provide us with a realistic update as to the status of the book? I don't want to ask about an ETA because each one of those responses have blown by year after year. The production on this has been (as we all know) GLACIALLY slow. Oh if this were only an SK book. Not trying to be a pain. I'm just sayin'...
    Two of the three sets of signature sheets are finished. Once the third set of sheets is done, it'll go to the printer.
