Only 4 copies of Thinner by Stephen King signed limited edition hardcover remain for customer preorder at: http://www.darkregions.com/books/thinne … -hardcover

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/Thinner_by_Stephen_King_Interior_Image_One.jpg

Hardnosed lawyer Billy Halleck carries a few pounds more then he should but, hey, he’s happy, content, successful and, well, let’s say ‘highly sexually charged.’ It’s this latter area that’s the cause of all that’s to befall him, when his wife, Heidi distracts him while he’s driving and causes Billy to run down a woman who was part of a group of traveling Gypsies.

The case is kicked out of court (thanks to the judge being a personal friend of Billy) and everyone is happy. Well, everyone, that is, except for the dead woman’s father who’s less than impressed with American justice.

“Thinner,” he whispers in Billy’s ear as he strokes Halleck’s face. And, hoo boy, it’s a retribution that truly takes the cake as, from that very moment onwards, Billy Halleck discovers the diet of the gods. No matter what he puts away, the pounds continue to roll off.

Initially fearing some virulent cancer, Billy is relieved when he gets the all-clear. From then on, he’s happy with his lot: I mean, what’s not to like—clear your plate as many times as you want and you don’t put on an ounce? Hey, come on, right? Except, Billy wonders, how will this condition end? Not well, Billy’s inner voice whispers. Not well at all.

Often overlooked in summaries of King’s works, Thinner is a true tour de force…a rivetting page-turner of the highest order.

With all manner of goodies including an Introduction from Johnny Mains, colour artwork from both Les Edwards and Edward Miller (Les’s ‘dark half’ if truth be told)—and with Johnny and Les signing all copies—the slipcased state will be a joy to behold.

Clive Barker Double Feature: For a limited time we are offering Clive Barker's The Midnight Meat Train Special Definitive Edition Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover and The Painter, The Creature, and the Father of Lies Deluxe Signed Slipcased Hardcover together at a discounted rate at: http://www.darkregions.com/books/clive- … ve-edition

The Midnight Meat Train Special Definitive Edition is expected in stock and shipping by October 27th and Double Feature orders will begin shipping then.

About The Midnight Meat Train Special Definitive Edition

In 1984 the Books of Blood by Clive Barker were published and quickly gained a following worldwide. Literary eminences like Stephen King noticed early on the creativity and powerful prose throughout the Books of Blood, bringing Clive Barker's stories to the forefront of horror fiction. One of these stories was "The Midnight Meat Train" following one Leon Kaufman as he discovers the origins of a series of grizzly subway train murders in New York City... and the controlling forces behind it all.

Clive Barker's The Midnight Meat Train Special Definitive Edition brings the original story back with all-new material: a new afterword written by Clive Barker, 9 color paintings based on the story by the author, a new introduction by Phil & Sarah Stokes, a foreword by the movie screenplay writer Jeff Buhler, the first complete commercial printing of the movie screenplay, never-before-seen photos, notes, sketches and more.

The Midnight Meat Train Special Definitive Edition is currently offered for preorder in three signed limited edition hardcover formats and is expected to be in stock by summer of 2014. These collector's editions are expected to sell out extremely fast. The ultra-deluxe traycased hardcover may take longer to ship than the other editions due to the book being carefully handcrafted with premium materials.
This is the first and only printing of this special comprehensive signed hardcover edition. Reserve your copy of this definitive collector's edition of one of Clive Barker's classic and most celebrated stories: "The Midnight Meat Train."

About The Painter, The Creature, and the Father of Lies

From the man who has brought you twenty books of dark fiction and fantasy, unforgettable horror movies such HELLRAISER and CANDYMAN, and countless paintings and illustrations, this is the first-ever collection of Clive Barker’s nonfiction. Representing more than 25 years of writing, THE PAINTER, THE CREATURE, AND THE FATHER OF LIES contains:

All the introductions he’s written for his own works (prefaces in fiction and non-fiction books, liner notes on CDs/laserdiscs/DVDs, introductions in graphic novel adaptations, text of theatre playbills, and more);
All the forewords and afterwords he’s written on other people’s works (books, graphic novels, etc.); and
Essays and articles written for magazines on the horror genre and other topics.

These have never been collected together and many are nearly impossible to track down. Furthermore, from Barker’s personal archives: a couple of unpublished pieces, including an unused self-penned introduction to Volume 1 of the BOOKS OF BLOOD from 1983 written from the point of view of a demon interviewing Clive Barker.

The editors, Phil and Sarah Stokes, who operate the official Clive Barker website at www.clivebarker.info, have spent the past several years compiling these 100 separate pieces to produce a truly definitive work. This collection features a new foreword by Barker, an introduction by the Stokes, and new illustrations by Barker. The numbered and lettered edition will contain bonus material: cover images for the majority of publications in which the nonfiction pieces were first published.

If you haven’t read any of Barker’s nonfiction, you’ll find that it’s just as compelling, enjoyable, and well-written as his fiction. These pieces cover the inspirations for his works, insights into the creative process, and musings on art and the horror genre. Not currently scheduled to be published anywhere else, don’t miss this landmark collection from a modern master of horror and dark fantasy.

https://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/prisoner_489/prisoner-489-front-cover-400px.jpg

The new novella Prisoner 489 by bestselling author Joe R. Lansdale (Cold in July, Hap & Leonard series, Edge of Dark Water) featuring original front cover artwork and eight interior illustrations by world-renowned artist Santiago Caruso is officially launching on Tuesday, November 18th 2014 in ebook, trade paperback and three signed limited edition hardcover formats. As one of our most anticipated books of the year, we encourage all customers to secure their signed limited edition hardcovers while in preorder as they are expected to sell out quickly. The signed hardcover editions will enter production as soon as Santiago finishes the interior illustrations for the book.

Description

On an island with a prison for the most evil and powerful criminals in the world, a new prisoner is strapped to the electric chair for execution. After multiple surges of electricity and nearly knocking out power to the entire island, the prisoner is finally dead. The staff buries him in the prison graveyard with a simple marker baring three numbers: 489.

After the body is buried, a violent storm rocks the islands and a staff member goes missing. The crew rushes into the storm, searching for their lost comrade. They find that the burial site of prisoner 489 has been unearthed, and the body that was inside has gone missing. With a horrific finding and strange noises around them, a powerful threat is closing in. It’s a threat that they thought was impossible, and it will force them into a battle for their lives.

"Veteran horror/thriller author Lansdale (Hot in December) tells a tight, spooky tale about what happens when an executed prisoner doesn’t stay dead." - Publishers Weekly
