    Smoke and Mirrors: Screenplays, Teleplays, Stage Plays, Comic Scripts & Treatments
    edited by Richard Chizmar

    A Note From the Publisher:
    Cemetery Dance Publications is proud to announce Smoke and Mirrors, a collection of screenplays, teleplays, stage plays, comic scripts, and treatments by thirteen masters of horror and fantasy. This deluxe oversized book reproduces the scripts exactly as they were written in the author's own formatting. This special edition will feature a deluxe 9 X 12 trimsize, just like The Secretary of Dreams by Stephen King!

    Just a few of the highlights include a never before seen comic script from Joe Hill; two rare teleplays from Frank Darabont; an original, never filmed full-length screenplay by Mick Garris; a rare teleplay and treatment by William Peter Blatty; Neil Gaiman's original take on an H.G. Wells' short story; Joe R. Lansdale's stage adaptation of one of his legendary short stories; and much, much more!

    This Cemetery Dance Publications special edition is a World's First and there are no other editions planned at this time, so place your order today if you don't want to miss out!

    About the Book:
    Tales of horror and the fantastic have been told in many ways over the centuries — around the campfire, on the stage, in books and movies, and even on television — but no form is quite so visceral and direct as the script.

    Whether it's a stage play, a feature film screenplay, or the script for a classic horror comic, these acclaimed authors aren't just putting black text on a white page. The writing may seem clean and simple at first, but the authors are actually creating worlds; they're luring you into their creations and before you know it, there's no way out. You're part of the story and you have to keep turning the pages until you reach "The End" or "Fade Out."

    The big question is: will you survive to see the final curtain call?

    Come now, take your seat, and let the show begin. You have nothing to fear but your own imagination.

    Featuring:
    "The Magic Shop" by Neil Gaiman (teleplay)
    "Showdown" by Frank Darabont (teleplay)
    "The Ventriloquist's Dummy" by Frank Darabont (teleplay)
    "Hell Hospital" by William Peter Blatty (teleplay)
    "Faith" by William Peter Blatty (treatment)
    "Snowmen" by Kealan Patrick Burke (teleplay)
    "Freddy Wertham Goes to Hell" by Joe Hill (comic script)
    "Softwar" by Stewart O'Nan (feature film treatment)
    "To Fight With Monsters" by Brian Keene & Michael Oliveri (comic script)
    "The Joy of Living" by William F. Nolan (teleplay)
    "Becoming the Monster" by Poppy Z. Brite (comic script)
    "By Bizarre Hands" by Joe R. Lansdale (stage play)
    "Hole" by Ray Garton (comic script)
    "Jimmy Miracle" by Mick Garris (feature length film script)

        Hi,
        Will the signed editions come with a slipcase? If not, will one be made available for purchase? If so, can you please make it another color than black - even something like that dark green of the title on the cover?

          • Cloth-bound Trade Hardcover Edition ($40)
          • Deluxe Slipcased and Numbered Limited Edition of just 400 signed (by the editor and most of the authors) copies ($150)
          • Deluxe Traycased Lettered Edition of just 52 copies signed (by the editor and most of the authors) and lettered hardcover copies bound in leather with a satin ribbon page marker and additional full-color artwork ($400)
          This one is going to be a really big / cool book. It has the same trim size as SOD, but it's about twice the page count. So think a SOD that's almost twice as thick.

            This book looks really cool, and I concur that the cover art is outstanding. That is what initially got me interested in it. The same thing happened with Johnny Halloween. I bought that specifically because of the magnificent cover, and I was rewarded with a good collection of stories as well. I think CD is one of the few places where you can truly judge a book by its cover, as the artwork alone makes the purchase worth it.

              Thanks, Dan. I swear I read that description on the site half a dozen times and missed the word "slipcased" every time. D'oh!

              I still hope the slipcase is a color other than black.

                I don't think we've picked out a slipcase material yet. I personally think a dark green would look really awesome with the dust jacket.

                    Based on the cover artwork, a green slipcase seems likely. This is going to be a massive book!
