    The Best of Cemetery Dance
    edited by Richard Chizmar

    The Best of Cemetery Dance showcases five dozen of the very finest short stories from the first 25 issues of Cemetery Dance magazine. Published over a period of nine years -- and still publishing today -- Cemetery Dance is the winner of the World Fantasy Award and the International Horror Critics Guild Award, as well as a recent nominee for both the British Fantasy Award and the American Horror Award.

    Featuring a virtual who's who of today's greatest authors of dark fiction, The Best of Cemetery Dance is one of the most important books of the year -- including contributions from Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon, Poppy Z. Brite, Jack Ketchum, Ed Gorman, Ramsey Campbell, Ray Garton, and dozens of others! This special collector's volume also features a brand new, exclusive interview with Cemetery Dance editor, Richard Chizmar. More than 800 pages of top-notch horror!

    Named one of "1998's Best Books" by Publishers Weekly, The Best of Cemetery Dance was nominated for every major award in the genre!

    Hellnotes called it "the most important anthology of the decade, much less 1998!"

    I only own the trade version of this book. The limited editions are always out of my price range. Someday I will add it to my collection.

    I have the limited! It's worth a lot too. It's one of the most sought after books ever published by CD....dozens of signatures.

    Of course it's long out of print.
    Fortunately, there's always eBay.

    Yeah, and I almost listed it on eBay....I just sold Desperation tonight. I just don't like the fact that if it sold, eBay would take $100 or more in fees from me. I've been both a buyer and seller there a long time and it's really gone down hill for sellers since the new guy took over. It sucks actually.

    Here is a random question for Brian. Do you know how many of the red cover ARCs were produced of this book?
