Cemetery Dance Publications has announced a brand new hardcover edition of the controversial novel The Woman by Jack Ketchum and Lucky McKee. The cloth-bound trade hardcover edition will include a bonus novella.
Although the Cemetery Dance trade hardcover edition will be issued unsigned, Jack Ketchum and Lucky McKee have agreed to personally sign every copy that is pre-ordered during this week. To make this version extra special, Cemetery Dance will be printing a special signature sheet for the authors to sign, which will turn these copies into a very exclusive Limited Edition that is only sold for one week only and only on the Cemetery Dance website.
Description: The Woman is the powerful story of the last survivor of a feral tribe of cannibals who have terrorized the east coast from Maine into Canada for years now. Badly wounded in a battle with police, she takes refuge in a cave overlooking the sea.
Christopher Cleek is a slick, amoral — and unstable — country lawyer who, out hunting one day, sees her bathing in a stream. Fascinated, he follows her to her cave.
Cleek has many dark secrets and to these he’ll add another. He will capture her, lock in his fruit cellar, and tame her, civilize her. To this end he’ll enlist his long-suffering wife Belle, his teenage son and daughter Brian and Peg, and even his little girl Darlin’, to aid him.
So the question becomes, who is more savage? The hunter or the game?
Previously, The Woman was only available as an ultra-expensive deluxe edition with a tiny print run and did not include the bonus novella.
