    And here is my annual inquiry regarding the status. A year ago this month two of three signature sheets were completed. Are we STILL waiting on the third? I see further solicitation of this book this month.

    This is the one that's now called The Best of Cemetery Dance 2, right?

    If you look at the production update page you will see that the last signature sheet is with the very last author so the finish line is in sight

    Yep! Last author before Richard is signing, and then Richard signs at his desk here in the office, and then we're off to the printer!

    As we had posted over the years, we weren't going to "re-announce" the book publicly as The Best of Cemetery Dance 2 until we were reasonably sure it could go to the printer that same year.

    https://www.cemeterydance.com/production-updates.html

    We're thrilled to report the first two sets of signature sheets are DONE and back home in the CD offices, and the third set of sheets are with the final author and will be headed back here very soon, at which point Richard Chizmar will sign them and the book will be ready for the printer!

    I saw a photo on Kealan Patrick Burke's Instagram of him signing a bunch of signiture sheets with a bunch of authors names already on them. Those wouldn't happen to be the final set of sheets for this book would they?

    I saw Stewart O'nan had signed that page also.

    There's something like 3 pages of signature sheets for this one. I believe we can basically be done anytime after Kealan and Richard. There's some people who didn't have time to fit them into their schedules that we may try and sneak in if there's time before we need to send this off to the printer, as there's some space left on sheets 2 and 3. These sheets have been on a serious journey, I think they've been circulating for maybe 3+ years. I can't remember all of the problems we had as my brain can't keep the sheets for these separate from the sheets for Best of Shivers, which has been circulating for nearly as long, and had all sorts of problems too.

    Yeah, my brain has also merged the various problems the sets of sheets for both books have encountered into one massive signature sheet problem folder... but we're almost there! (I mean, which one was lost at that apartment building for six months... and THEN turned up after the replacement sheets had already been signed by six or eight people... And then the other set of sheets that disappeared into that person's house and a friend had to stage a literal intervention to get them back... Ugh... So. Many. Problems.)

    There are a few more authors we can circle back to who might be able to sign, IF there is a time... I'd like to try, but I also know folks would rather we just cut bait and send to the printer and I do understand that...

    Well, if one of those authors is King, then maybe we can wait a few more minutes . . .

    It was going to be a surprise, but you guessed it! GAYLE KING is going to sign them!

    I don't know where you call home or what city you may be in while reading this, but if you're anywhere in North America, then I'd bet you just heard me SQUEEE with delight.

    Hmm, I guess I don't watch enough TV, 'cause I've never seen or heard of Gayle King

    Just a quick update, this is headed to the printer real soon. Which means the THC should be out in January or February. The Limited Edition will be a bit longer as we'll have to get a slipcase produced.

    I'm not sure if this is the right thread - a mod can move this if it's not. Was this book born out of CEMETERY DANCE: A FIFTEEN YEAR CELEBRATION? That book was announced in early 2003 - here's a link from February 2003. https://web.archive.org/web/20030219..._Code=chizmar8 I was wondering if the table of contents were ever revealed for A FIFTEEN YEAR CELEBRATION? It was supposed to have "brand new, never-before-seen fiction and non-fiction from dozens of the horror/suspense genre's biggest stars! It will also include a scattering of significant reprints".

    Yes, CD 15 was turned into Best of CD 2. No a TOC was never revealed for CD 15.

    Thanks Dan! Did CD ever make proofs or arcs of A FIFTEEN YEAR CELEBRATION? If so, it would have to be one of the most rare items CD ever made.

    Nope. CD 15 got stalled (for reasons I don't actually know) in early phases and never actually had anything to have been turned into an ARC. I think conceptually it was transformed into Best of CD 2 maybe 8 years ago or so. In fact this thread was started when this was still CD 15 publicly, but I think we were already Best of CD 2 behind closed doors back then. The book itself had been essentially ready for the past couple of years, but the signature sheets had been taking a really long time to circulate. There's 3 pages of signatures. It's a load of people signing and (30+ signatures) and it took years to get all of those signatures taken care of.

    There's another "Best of" book that the signature sheets have been circulating for nearly as long and I still don't have back. That one's been a bigger hassle, as we had to start one of the sheets over again, as the one set got lost mid circulation. It eventually made it's way back to us, but not until after all the authors who had to re-sign signed new sheets.

    I have an ARC for a CD title Dark Masques. The ARC has a publication date of December 2010. I am assuming that this one died on the vine. Would have been a great limited edition though.
