    We're very pleased to announce we'll be publishing Detours edited by Brian James Freeman, one of our most exciting anthologies in a long time featuring some of the biggest names ever collected in one book!



    About the Book:
    Every now and then your favorite author takes a detour while writing a new novel: a chapter gets chopped, a connected short story is dreamed up, an essay about the book's origins is composed, or an oddity is created on a day off.

    Collected here together for the first time are detours by Stephen King, William Peter Blatty, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Peter Straub, Kelley Armstrong, Michael Koryta, David Morrell, Michael Marshall and Michael Marshall Smith, Chet Williamson, Poppy Z. Brite, Stewart O'Nan, and Owen King.

    Join these bestselling authors as they share the other works they wrote while they were writing the books you already know and love.

    I did not hesitate to order this the minute I saw my e-mail. The premise is great and the cover is awesome.

    Of course I ordered a copy.
    Not the lettered, although this did cross my mind.

    Thanks to everyone who has ordered DETOURS! The 52 copy Lettered Edition sold out yesterday and the 1000 copy Limited Edition is now 95% sold out, so this one will be gone before the weekend is over!

    Wow! Congratulations on the fast (almost) sellout! That's a whole lot of books moved. I think this is a great idea for an anthology and look forward to reading it.

    Also, since we are getting a deleted excerpt form The Straw Men in this book, any chance in getting the rest of The Straw Men series in signed limiteds? :-)

    And what an Owen King tale to start with! It's unlike anything else I've ever read from him...
