ChiZine Publications has announced that Robert J. Wiersema’s The World More Full of Weeping, his first book since the bestseller Before I Wake, is now available for pre-order in limited edition hardcover.
Description: When 11-year-old Brian Page disappears in the woods, the community rallies around his family, sending searchers into the forest. But things take an ominous turn when his father is reminded that he disappeared into the same woods a quarter century earlier, an incident of which he has no memory. What secrets lie in the mysterious forest? Will Brian follow in his father’s footsteps, and emerge shaking into the arms of his family, or will he be claimed by the eternal twilight of the trees?
The book also includes an essay by the author called “Places and Names,” and the short story “The Small Rain Down,” which also takes place in the novella’s setting of the town of Henderson, that will only be available in the hardcover edition. All hardcovers will be signed by the author and cover artist Erik Mohr.
The World More Full of Weeping caps off a five-book rush during 2009 to have books available prior to Anticipation, the World Science Fiction Convention, which will take place in Montreal in early August. In addition to The World More Full of Weeping, ChiZine Publications will be publishing:
– The Tel Aviv Dossier by Lavie Tidhar and Nir Yaniv
– The Choir Boats by Daniel A. Rabuzzi
– Objects of Worship by Claude Lalumière
– Monstrous Affections by David Nickle
The trade paperback editions of all five books will be officially launched at Anticipation during an event Saturday night (August 8). Though some of the trade paperbacks will not be publicly available until later in the fall, all five books will be available for sale (along with other CZP titles Filaria by Brent Hayward, and Horror Story and Other Horror Stories by Robert Boyczuk). Authors of all five books will be attending the launch and available to sign copies. Full details of the launch can be found at: Launch Party
Pre-orders can be made through Horror Mall at: The World More Full of Weeping
