First Photos of The Dark Man by Stephen King Deluxe Oversized Signed Limited Edition Artwork Portfolio

Our slipcase and box maker toiled over several different prototypes for The Dark Man Artwork Portfolio before coming up with a design that would protect the artwork for years to come. The stack of artwork is nearly 1.5 inches THICK, so housing the artwork in a way that didn’t bend or stress each print was our highest priority, which is why it took three tries to get the case just right. We ended up designing a special two piece slipcase system that we’ve never used before and we’re thrilled with how it turned out. This will begin shipping next month, but you can see a few of the first photos below:

Dreamlike States Published by Cemetery Dance Publications (And Already Sold Out!)

Hot on the heals of Weak and Wounded, Cemetery Dance Publications has also published my new mini-collection of short stories, Dreamlike States, featuring an exclusive introduction by Ed Gorman, original interior illustrations by Glenn Chadbourne, and another beautiful cover by Vincent Chong. The signed Limited Edition is already sold out, but there are copies of the Deluxe Lettered Edition available for now.

About the Book:
This collection by Brian James Freeman features six dark stories that are a little different from his other works. Some focus on unusual characters and some are simply told in unusual ways. The last two are closely linked pieces, although the connection is hidden under the surface.

Weak and Wounded

* When Sam discovers the jogger dying in the middle of the road in “As She Lay There Dying,” he isn’t ready for what she has to tell him:Sammy, we can’t run anymore. He doesn’t know this girl, so why is she talking like his dead wife?

* Assuming Michael manages to escape “The Punishment Room,” he isn’t sure if he’ll be able to go on living with the knowledge of what he did to survive. But then again, that’s a dilemma he wouldn’t mind confronting, given the finality of the alternative…

* “The Gorman Gig” was definitely not going like the others, and Mike and Jimmy had no idea how badly this job was going to end for everyone involved…

* When “One Way Flight” begins, the man in seat 36-B awakens to find everyone else on his plane is dead, including the pilot. Now the clock is ticking and the man doesn’t have much time to figure out who he is, what has happened, and most importantly, how to get off the plane alive…

* In “The Silent Attic” Amy is haunted by the memory of her mother’s last days, but will one last trip to the room where her nightmares were born set her free?

* Daniel Walker is driving to his hometown for the first time in years because his father is dying, but he knows there’s more than a sick patriarch waiting for him in the house where he grew up. Daniel is traveling home with a heart full of questions, and all of his ghosts are patiently waiting with a few questions of their own in ”A Dreamlike State.”

These six thought-provoking stories show why David Morrell has called Freeman’s writing “elegant and haunting” and why Michael Koryta has said Freeman writes “a taut, memorable tale.”

This new collection by Brian James Freeman features characters who are searching for answers to deeply troubling questions.

Weak and Wounded Published by Cemetery Dance Publications

Cemetery Dance Publications has published my new mini-collection of short stories, Weak and Wounded, featuring an exclusive introduction by Ron McLarty, original interior illustrations by Glenn Chadbourne, and another beautiful cover by Vincent Chong.

About the Book:
This new collection by Brian James Freeman features characters who are searching for answers to deeply troubling questions.

Weak and Wounded

* In “Running Rain,” a devastated husband and wife try to pretend life can somehow be normal again after their son becomes a victim of a serial killer known as The Riverside Strangler… but the dark secrets they’re keeping from each other push their relationship to the brink.

* In “Marking the Passage of Time,” a couple approaches the end of the world in their own ways as the clock ticks down and they try to figure out where all of the time has gone…

* “Where Sunlight Sleeps” is the tale of a grieving father and his young son, both dealing with a shared loss the best they can, who take a trip down a memory lane lined with jagged edges and vicious traps…

* On “The Last Beautiful Day,” a devoted husband returns to the scene of the worst day of his life by volunteering for a job that is both morbid and profound.

* “Walking With the Ghosts of Pier 13” is the story of a young man visiting the beach front amusement park where his brother died during a terrorist attack. He wants to understand why a madman came to this place and blew himself up and killed so many innocent people… but the answer to that question might not be the only thing waiting for the young man when he starts walking with the ghosts.

These five hauntingly beautiful stories show why Publishers Weekly has called Freeman’s writing “skillfully composed prose” and why Tess Gerritsen has said, “Brian James Freeman managed to both scare me and move me to tears.”
