Cemetery Dance Publications has announced the sixth entry in its award-nominated and best-selling anthology series. Shivers VI is by far the largest volume to date and the first volume in the series to be published as Limited Edition and Lettered Edition hardcovers signed by the editor for the collectors in addition to the affordable trade paperback edition for general readers.
Shivers VI weighs in at 410 pages and contains more than 110,000 words from today’s most popular authors of horror and suspense including Stephen King, Peter Straub, Al Sarrantonio, Jay Bonansinga, Lisa Tuttle, David B. Silva, Melanie Tem, Brian Hodge, Brian Keene, Alan Peter Ryan, Blake Crouch and Jack Kilborn, Bev Vincent, Brian James Freeman, Norman Prentiss, and many others.
Two of the longest pieces are a long lost novella, “The Crate” by Stephen King, which was only published once and hasn’t been in print in more than three decades, and “A Special Place: The Heart of A Dark Matter” by Peter Straub, a novella that is “creepy to the core” and “shines a terrible light on the backstory of Straub’s acclaimed A Dark Matter” according to the coveted Starred Review from Publishers Weekly.
Featuring original dark fiction with a handful of rare reprints, Shivers VI is available only from Cemetery Dance Publications.
