Don't you just hate spoilers? I do, too. That's why I always try to include warnings. However, I sometimes ramble a bit too much here or there and maybe a few (or many) key plot points slip without me giving proper notice. So I'd like to include a blanket spoiler warning for the weary internet travelers of the world: Here There Be Spoilers. You've been warned.

So Brian Keene, Bryan Smith, J.F. Gonzalez, Ryan Harding, Edward Lee, Jack Ketchum, Wrath James White, Nate Southard, and Shane McKenzie wrote a book together...

I've kind of been shying away from the harder stuff. However, when I heard that what could only be called a hardcore horror supergroup was going write a novel in order to help author Tom Piccicrilli (who is recovering from a bout with brain cancer)... Well, I wanted to buy it and read it as soon as I could. Sinister Grin Press (co-founded by Shane McKenzie) decided that they were going to release it as a signed hardcover (yes, every author will sign including proceeds beneficiary Tom Piccirilli) and since it was only fifty five bucks I jumped at the chance to get it. I mean, think about how much a signed Stephen king book costs compared to this. 

I don't know what it is going to be like. I hope it isn't a case of one too many cooks spoiling a recipe and all that, but hey, I'm going to be optimistic. This is like the hardcore version of Hear N' Aid, after all. 

This signed hardcover is not going to be a numbered edition because the amount of copies printed will equal the number of copies pre-ordered. Later on the book will be re-released as a paperback and an e-book (probably by Deadite Press), but if you want a hardcover version that is signed then you better get on the stick. 

Get it here:

  1. A horror supergroup.

    I read one book by several authors once. It was a book where several writers living in Florida combined for a story that was serialized for the Sunday paper and then published in book form. I think it was a fund raiser of some sort. There were 12 or 13 authors (Elmore Leonard was one) and each one took a chapter. No one knew how the story would turn out as each author had to work off the previous authors chapters. It was called "Naked Comes The Manatee." It was an interesting concept but it was kind of a mess. There were 3 or 4 authors in there that were not nearly as good as Elmore, Carl Hiasen or Dave Barry so the inferior ones kind of screwed the story up. Your book should come out better because the talent level is more even.
