    Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay to be published by Dark Regions

    I was surprised to see this in Dark Regions newsletter today:

    http://darkregions.com/blogs/news/an...-regions-press

    I kinda thought that CD might be publishing this one due to having Head Full of Ghosts in the pipeline. No details as to the editions being produced, additional content, etc. I'm in for the books through SST, but might spring for this one if the details strike my fancy, especially if they are producing a traycased lettered edition. I've liked the ones I've received from DRP in the past (Off Season and Bird Box) and I'd like a nice lettered Tremblay.

    I’m trying to stay away from Tremblay’s S/Ls, as I have signed trade hardcover 1sts of all of his books. Having a bit of a challenge with that, though, as they all look very nice, and A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS was one of my favorite books of the last decade.

    Curious to see how much it will cost. I thought it was a decent novel but not as good as the previous two he wrote.

    Agreed on A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS. One of my favorite reads. I was not as enthralled with his second novel, but didn't think it was bad, just didn't quite hit the mark for me.

    I haven't read Cabin yet, so I'm excited to read it. Anything particular about the book you didn't like?

    It's not bad but it's a quicker read with a handful of characters in a single setting so it just felt less substantial overall. I also felt the other two were creepier and had more atmosphere, this one is more of a thriller.

    I'm wondering why they are doing Cabin if SST is doing it? It seems that there is an overlap with Trembley's work . Wonder what knd of an effect this will have on the sales from each publisher. I loved Cabin at the End of the World and Head Full of Ghosts,but not enough to own 2 different limited editions of each.

    I would agree r.e. DISAPPEARANCE...just didn't quite do it for me, either. It was a solid enough read, but felt like it didn't quite achieve its potential, and was certainly a far cry from HEAD. I thought CABIN was a slightly better novel, though again fell short of HEAD by a good measure. Again, there seemed to be a eerie potential that just wasn't realized by the final work. It was an odd book -- a little meandering in a dreamy, semi-surrealistic way -- that I was frankly a little surprised to receive as much mainstream acclaim as it did. I suppose my reaction to these latter novels has made my decision to steer away from the SST S/Ls a bit easier...kinda.

    I loved Head Full of Ghosts and Cabin. I have not read disappearance yet. I have his new short story collection on pre order. Cabin was odd but in a good way....at least for me.
