About the Book: The Secretary of Dreams combines classic tales of terror from the mind of Stephen King with the critically acclaimed artwork of Maine artist Glenn Chadbourne. This ... unique book displays an incredible and original blend of King's words with Chadbourne's one-of-a-kind illustrations: text and artwork brought together to tell these stories in a whole new way. As you venture into The Secretary of Dreams you'll discover "Home Delivery," "Jerusalem's Lot," and "The Reach" presented on beautifully designed oversized pages. These stories are heavily illustrated with spot artwork, full page illustrations, and even multiple-page art spreads. Dozens of painstakingly crafted illustrations bring King's characters to life. Also within this collection are "The Road Virus Heads North," "Rainy Season," and "Uncle Otto's Truck," which appear for the very first time in full graphic format as imagined by Chadbourne. Not one word from King's original manuscripts has been left out. Instead Chadbourne presents the stories through a variety of techniques: traditional paragraphs of text merged directly into the artwork, handwritten bursts of dialogue to convey emotion, and even multiple fonts to match the mood of each scene. The Secretary of Dreams is a collection of Stephen King's greatest short stories presented in a way never before imagined. Glenn Chadbourne spent over two years creating the artwork within these pages, digging deep inside the text to make each of these classic tales burst off the page. An original Cemetery Dance Publications publishing event, this deluxe oversized hardcover edition is the World's First Edition. There are no other editions planned of this title, which the publisher plans to ship in the fall of 2006, but King has already selected six more stories for a second volume and Chadbourne is hard at work on the illustrations! About the Author: Stephen King has written more than forty novels and two hundred short stories. He is the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Dist Read more Show Less

    ¿Home Delivery¿. Maddie knows the world may be ending with the dead returning to life, but she is handling her pregnancy, five months old, quite well on Little Tall Island. --- ¿The Road Virus Heads North¿. Novelist Richard stopped at a yard sale where he had to buy an odd looking watercolor by an artist named Hastings, who committed suicide. Richard soon finds he has a companion, the kid in the picture. --- ¿Jerusalem¿s Lot¿. In 1850 Charles writes letters to his friends Bones and Richard telling them about a deserted village Jerusalem¿s Lot that the Lord apparently abandoned as he describes pictures he found there that is closer to home. --- ¿Rainy Season¿. John and Elise arrive in Willow, Maine where they meet Laura and Henry who warn them that it is seven years to the day it last rained toads in town and they must leave before the torrent begins. --- ¿The Reach¿. Gram explains to her great-grandchildren that the Reach between Goat Island and the mainland was much wider when she was younger, but as people leave they die shrinking the distance and this is why she never stepped on the mainland. --- ¿Uncle Otto¿s Truck¿. He writes down what he knows about his Uncle Otto who he found grotesquely dead in an oily haunting way when he delivered food as is his weekly assignment since his own father died two years ago. --- These six tales are reprints of Stephen King short stories with one from 1978, two from 1985, two from 1993 and one from 2002. Thus the audience has an opportunity to see how much Mr. King has changed at least with his shorts over the two plus decades. The tales are refreshed by Glenn Chadbourne illustrations with three including pictures to enhance the vivid tales while the remainder are in graphic comic format. This is a terrific and unique anthology that fans of the grandmaster of horror will enjoy. --- Harriet Klausner
