    Today's Featured eBook!
    Invisible Fences by Norman Prentiss For Just $4.99!



    Since we launched a lot of titles at the same time, we'd like to draw your attention to a few of them at a time when we have space in the newsletter. Today's featured eBook is...

    Invisible Fences
    by Norman Prentiss

    About the eBook:
    Do you see the point of the story, Nathan? We all cut parts of ourselves away, but we never lose them. Things stay with us—souvenirs with memories attached. We can't always choose what to keep, what to throw away.

    Nathan's parents devised cautionary tales for him and his sister—gruesome stories about predatory cars racing along the "Big Street" at one end of their neighborhood, or dope fiends lurking in the woods behind their house and ready to plunge hypodermics into the skin of foolish young trespassers. These stories served their purpose during Nathan's gullible childhood, essentially constructing an invisible fence around the yard and keeping the boy close to home where he'd be safe.

    Such barriers are not so easy to discard in later life. As an adult, Nathan no longer believes his parents' stories, and yet they still confine him. He lives cautiously, avoiding serious relationships, avoiding risk. But despite his efforts, something from his parents' cautionary tales threatens to creep beneath that invisible border…and the enclosed yard might not be as safe and secure as it always seemed…

    Really happy to have a free story out there (and hope nobody gets mad if they paid a buck at Amazon or B&N!). This "Four Legs" ebook is a full, stand-alone story, with 2 more and TONS of great Steve Gilberts art to come in the print edition.

    Four Legs in the Morning: A Free Short Story by Norman Prentiss



    Four Legs in the Morning: A FREE Short Story
    by Norman Prentiss


    Please Note:
    This is the first of three stories included in the forthcoming Cemetery Dance Signature Series collectible hardcover of the same title. This story is complete and stands on its own, but lacks the illustrations from the hardcover edition.

    About the eBook:
    Dr. Sibley, long-standing Chair of the English and Classical Literature Department at Graysonville University, has outlasted many of his detractors... possibly because mysterious consequences await those who defy or disappoint him. In this stand-alone short story, a new colleague, whose avant-guard theories offend Sibley's traditional critical sensibilities, uncovers a new answer to an ancient riddle...

    You can download this eBook for FREE from the Cemetery Dance website (if you can load ePub or Mobi files on your e-reader) or you can purchase it on one of these retailer websites for just 99 cents: Amazon Barnes & Nobel

    Today's Featured eBook!
    The Mountain King by Rick Hautala



    There are many legends and ancient tales concerning Mount Agiochook, the second tallest mountain in Maine. Some of these tales speak of a demon that resides on the rocky slopes near the mountain's snow-crested summit. Legend has it that a force of supernatural evil periodically emerges from the mists that shroud the mountain and comes down to the valley, looking to claim a life.

    Sometimes the life it claims is an animal — perhaps a stray dog or a farmer's cow or a horse. At other times, it claims a human life, a straying hiker or a lost camper.

    Mark Newman has hiked the numerous trails to the summit of Mount Agiochook many times. He has heard the stories and Indian legend, but he doesn't believe them.

    Not until one September afternoon, when an early snow storm sweeps through the mountains, and he witnesses something he knows can't possibly be real.

    But it is all too real!

    Convinced that there is something lurking near the summit of the mountain... something terrible... something that won't be satisfied with claiming just one human life, Mark vows to hunt it down and destroy it.

    What he doesn't know is that he, too, is being hunted. Under suspicion for the murders of his best friend and his wife's lover, Mark is being pursued by the local police, an angry mob, and something else... something he can't begin to comprehend until he confronts it, face to face.

    From international best-selling author Rick Hautala comes this terrifying adventure story of horror and suspense that will thrill you and haunt you long after you've finished reading it.

    Featured eBook for Halloween:
    Johnny Halloween by Norman Partridge!



    Originally published as a LONG SOLD OUT $30 signed Limited Edition hardcover!

    Norman Partridge's Halloween novel, Dark Harvest, was chosen as one of Publishers Weekly's 100 Best Books of 2006. A Bram Stoker Award winner and World Fantasy nominee, Partridge's rapid-fire tale of a small town trapped by its own shadows welcomed a wholly original creation, the October Boy, earning the author comparisons to Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, and Shirley Jackson.

    Now Partridge revisits Halloween with a collection featuring a half-dozen stories celebrating frights both past and present. In “The Jack o' Lantern,” a brand new Dark Harvest novelette, the October Boy races against a remorseless döppelganger bent on carving a deadly path through the town's annual ritual of death and rebirth. “Johnny Halloween” features a sheriff battling both a walking ghost and his own haunted conscience. In “Three Doors,” a scarred war hero hunts his past with the help of a magic prosthetic hand, while “Satan's Army” is a real Partridge rarity previously available only in a long sold-out lettered edition from another press.

    But there's more to this holiday celebration besides fiction. “The Man Who Killed Halloween” is an extensive essay about growing up during the late sixties in the town where the Zodiac Killer began his murderous spree. In an introduction that explores monsters both fictional and real, Partridge recalls what it was like to live in a community menaced by a serial killer and examines how the Zodiac's reign of terror shaped him as a writer.

    Halloween night awaits. Join a master storyteller as he explores the layers of darkness that separate all-too-human evil from the supernatural. Let Norman Partridge lead you on seven journeys through the most dangerous night of the year, where no one is safe…and everyone is suspect.

    Today's Featured eBook Is A Blast From CD's Past!
    Slippin' Into Darkness by Norman Partridge



    Originally published and sold out in 1994 as one of Cemetery Dance's first Limited Edition hardcovers! Read it again today for just $4.99!

    The clock strikes midnight and twenty-four hours of terror begin in a town on the California coast:

    12:03 A.M.: In a quiet cemetery, a man throws beer bottles at his lost love's tombstone. Graveyard baseball is the name of the game. The pitcher hasn't thrown a baseball or a bottle since he graduated high school in 1976, but his concentration is perfect, his control unmatched... until someone disturbs the game, and the pitcher explodes in a violent fury.

    1:12 A.M.: A secretive photographer climbs the stairs of his basement studio. Shadows drift across the cool green felt of a pool table in his living room. A young woman waits for him in the darkness. She is naked, her skin ghost-white, and her cold laughter stirs memories of a terrible night in 1976.

    1:38 A.M.: A wealthy thirty-five-year-old woman leaves her young lover's apartment, thinking of the husband she plans to divorce. Outside she meets a man from her past... a man from 1976 with a camera in his hands and a twisted blackmail scheme in his heart.

    3:31 A.M.: A battered pick-up truck bashes through the gates of an abandoned drive-in theater. Five members of the class of '76 project an old home movie that hides bitter secrets from the past... secrets that will forever change the future.

    So begins Slippin' Into Darkness, a wild ride of terror combining the relentless suspense of Thomas Harris, the moody atmosphere of Twin Peaks, and the sad longing of a Bruce Springsteen ballad. But ultimately this book is Norman Partridge, writing with the gloves off, taking horror and suspense in a direction all his own.

    Today's Featured eBook Is Discounted to 99 Cents For ONE Week ONLY!
    Wildest Dreams by Norman Partridge



    Originally published and long sold out in a 500 copy Limited Edition -- discounted to just 99 CENTS this week only on our store, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble! (Regular price of $4.99 applies elsewhere.)

    A storm is coming to Cliffside, California, and with it comes a killer.

    His name is Clay Saunders, and he walks in two worlds. Born with a caul, Saunders sees ghosts. But to him, the world of the dead is very much like the world of the living. It's a realm of eternal pain -- inescapable and relentless -- that cuts as deeply as the razor edge of the hired killer's K-bar knife.

    Saunders has spilled blood on Florida sand, and the snow-covered Canadian prairie, and the black lava of Hawaii. His latest target is Diabolos Whistler, leader of a satanic cult. Exiled in Mexico, Whistler is alone when Saunders stabs him just above the first vertebrae... alone, except for the mummies stacked like so much cordwood in his library.

    But the living who await the killer's arrival in Cliffside are more frightening than the decayed corpses of the dead. There's Whistler's daughter Circe, a tattooed siren who leads Saunders to a bed of iron and satin...and Circe's bodyguard, a seven foot student of Egyptology whose sarcophagus rests in a redwood pyramid... and Janice Ravenwood, a new age medium with a startling hidden gift.

    And there's a little girl, a ghost held prisoner by vengeful revenants. Only Clay Saunders can save her. To do that, he must bridge the worlds of the living and the dead in an unforgettable climax of darkness and blood.

    Today's Featured eBook:
    Titanic 2012 by Bill Walker (Revised & Updated Edition!)


    About the Book:
    Best-selling mystery novelist Trevor Hughes has no idea that attending his twentieth reunion at Harvard will forever change his life.

    Persuaded to go by his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Dr. Julia Magnusson, he meets up with three old friends: Solly Rubens, a self-made Wall Street millionaire; Ken Faust, a successful software entrepreneur; and Harlan Astor, New York real estate tycoon and the glue that holds their circle together.

    That afternoon, over drinks at the Harvard Club, Harlan drops his bombshell: He is doing what James Cameron did not -- he is rebuilding the Titanic, and sailing the ship on the hundredth anniversary to honor those who died, including his great-grandfather, John Jacob Astor IV. Only Trevor is intrigued by Harlan's audacity. Touched by his friend's interest and concern, Harlan invites him on the maiden voyage to serve as the official chronicler.

    On April 10, 2012, Trevor journeys to Southampton and, along with the hundreds of handpicked passengers, boards the Titanic. He is awed by the immensity of the ship and the feelings that well up in him. His friend has made his grand dream a reality.

    During the journey, armed with his iPod Touch and a miniature wireless camera hidden in his glasses, Trevor interviews both passengers and crew, eager to learn the reasons why they chose to sail on the reborn ship.

    Nearly every one of them claims to have been profoundly affected by Cameron's film, wanting to recapture the magic for themselves. And some of them are dying -- their last wish to be on the maiden voyage of the new Titanic.

    Trevor is touched that his friend has allowed these people to come aboard, and is unprepared when he meets Madeleine Regehr, a beautiful, free-spirited woman who resists his entreaties to be interviewed, intriguing Trevor all the more. Slowly, and inexorably, Maddy draws him out of his shell, allowing him to love deeply and completely, for the very first time in his life.

    But Trevor soon discovers a darker purpose for the voyage, a purpose that threatens to destroy him and the woman he loves. In a race against time that pits friend against friend, Trevor must stop the unstoppable or risk a horrific replay of history...

    Today's Featured eBook:
    A Life In the Cinema by Mick Garris
    Introduction by Stephen King, Afterword by Tobe Hooper, Cover Art by Clive Barker



    Hi Folks!

    We're very pleased to announce the newest addition to our eBook line, the first-ever eBook edition of A Life In the Cinema, the first collection of stories by Mick Garris!

    A Life In the Cinema
    by Mick Garris

    Introduction by Stephen King, Afterword by Tobe Hooper, Cover Art by Clive Barker

    About the Book:
    A Life In the Cinema is the first book from award-winning filmmaker Mick Garris. This collection of eight prickly tales and a screenplay reach under the skin of real life and reel life to take you places you never realized you wanted to go.

    The title story, "A Life in the Cinema" and its sequel, "Starfucker", are set in the author's hometown of Hollywood, and provide a yellow-jaundiced look at a world you only thought was glamorous.

    As Stephen King, in his introduction, says: "Here is a real Hollywood insider writing about the real inside world of filmmaking: the good, the bad, and the cheesy. These stories are both erotic and cynical, but they are above all well and fiercely told-when he's yarning about the tarnished tinsel underbelly of the town he knows (and clearly loves) the best, Mick Garris writes like a combination of Robert Bloch and James Ellroy, hardboiled noir with a ghastly little prick of the devil's own pitchfork."

    Not all of the stories are Hollywood-based: Garris includes tales of a grandmother who is just as loving in death as she was in life, a geriatric trailer park with a randy secret, wistful and impossible love with a twist, the wrong kind of baby-love, and a deathly brush with fame. The book is capped with a screenplay by Garris, as well as "Chocolate", the story it's based on, providing, as King puts it, "a textbook seminar in the art and craft of adapting one's own work."

    So welcome to a dark side of Hollywood you've never seen before...
