Dark Screams Volume Nine

JUST ANNOUNCED! Reading Stephen King edited by Brian James Freeman!

I’m very pleased to announce Reading Stephen King, an anthology of essays by some seriously incredible writers, will be published later this year by Cemetery Dance Publications!

About the Book:Reading Stephen King
Stephen King has inspired millions of readers with his writing for more than four decades, and this special volume of essays gathers together some of his high-profile fans to discuss why they love reading the works of Stephen King.

Many of these fans are acclaimed authors of fiction in their own right. Some of them have written insightful books about Stephen King’s work, exploring how King’s natural storytelling gift has allowed him to create stories that reach people in every language around the world. A few of them have even written, produced, and directed movie adaptations of King’s most acclaimed works.

In this book you will join Clive Barker, Stewart O’Nan, Richard Chizmar, Frank Darabont, Stephen Spignesi, Justin Brooks, Tony Magistrale, Michael R. Collings, Rocky Wood, Robin Furth, Kevin Quigley, Hans-Ake Lilja, Billy Chizmar, Jack Ketchum, Bev Vincent, Mick Garris, and Jay Franco as they discuss their love of reading Stephen King…

Faithful by Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King Sneak Peek Photos

As you might remember, I’m publishing a special edition of Faithful by Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King over at Books to Benefit to raise funds for some good causes the authors support. The Gift Edition approval copies arrived this week and and look terrific. Here are some quick “sneak peek” photos of the Gift Edition and the slipcase:

Faithful by Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King: Special Editions To Benefit Good Causes

This has been such a wild week that I never had a chance to post this on Monday as planned! I’m pleased to announce the first book from Books to Benefit, my little side project, has been announced.

The book is Faithful: The 10th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King, and it will be raising funds for The Haven Foundation and for organizations that promote cancer care and research. The Haven Foundation gives financial assistance to provide temporary support needed to safeguard and sustain the careers of established freelance artists. The authors also support cancer care and research organizations such as The Jimmy Fund. (You can learn how to donate to The Haven Foundation on their website and you can donate directly to The Jimmy Fund via their website.)

This project has been a lot of fun to work on, and I’m particularly happy with how the cover artwork turned out:

Detours edited by Brian James Freeman has been announced!

My new anthology, which features contributions from 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, has just been announced by Cemetery Dance Publications.

Detours is a project I’ve been working on for a couple of years, and it grew from my fascination with the parts of the creative process that you don’t see in the finished book: the lost chapters, scrapped scenes, and even the stories and fragments authors write when they need to get away from their current project for a day.

Detours

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.
