News - Dark Delicacies: Original Tales of Terror and the Macabre
...Del Howison, of the renowned California bookshop, Dark Delicacies, and the writer and editor Jeff Gelb are compiling an anthology of original horror stories by an extraordinary array of genre writers, including Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, and Ramsey Campbell.
The anthology, which includes Barker's 'Haeckel's Tale', was originally announced in Spring 2005 as a Cemetery Dance publication listed for September 2005, featuring artwork by more than a dozen artists - including cover art by Bernie Wrightson - and available in two states:
A Limited Edition (at $150) of 500 signed and slipcased copies, signed by Clive and most of the authors, and a traycased Lettered Edition (at $400) of 52 signed and lettered copies bound in leather, with satin ribbon page marker and additional artwork.
However, July 2005 has seen the announcement by Carroll and Graf of trade hardback ($25.00) and trade paperback ($15.95) editions, to be published in September, ahead of the Cemetery Dance editions, which are now scheduled for an undetermined date in 2006.
A full list of contributing authors and artists may be found at Cemetery Dance, where they are accepting pre-orders.
