Overview

Cemetery Dance Publications is proud to announce the seventh entry in this award-nominated and best-selling anthology series! In addition to the affordable trade paperback edition for general readers, this volume will also be published as a signed Limited Edition hardcover and a signed and traycased Lettered Edition hardcover, both of which will signed by the editor for the collectors!

Shivers VII contains more than 100,000 words of chilling fiction from more than two dozen of today's most popular authors of horror and suspense including Stephen King, Clive Barker, Graham Masterton, Ed Gorman, Bill Pronzini, Lisa Tuttle, Kaaron Warren, Del James, Lisa Morton, Roberta Lannes, Scott Nicholson, Bev Vincent, Brian James Freeman, Norman Prentiss, and many others.

Of special note to collectors: "Weeds" by Stephen King was originally published in Cavalier magazine in May 1976 and in Nugget magazine in April 1979, but has not been reprinted since, although it was adapted as "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" for Creepshow in 1982. "The Departed" by Clive Barker was originally published as "Hermione and the Moon" in The New York Times on October 30, 1992.

Featuring original dark fiction with a handful of rare reprints, Shivers VII is available only from Cemetery Dance Publications.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This year’s collection of mostly new fiction, bookended by classic reprints from Clive Barker and Steven King, focuses on small, creepy stories in well-realized modern settings—creative psychological horror that hits close to home and sticks in the mind long after the reading is done. Misbehavior turns back on the offender in stories like Joel Arnold’s “Bovine” and Lisa Martin’s synesthetic “Feel the Noise,” while objects insist on telling their own stories to their unfortunate owners in Rio Youers’s “Depth” and Del James’s “Arbeit Macht Frei.” Stories like Graham Masterton’s “Beholder” and Roberta Lannes’s “Room 8” are simultaneously horrible and heartbreaking, interspersed with lighter amusements such as Kevin Quigley’s tip of the hat to the old masters, “I Am Become Poe,” which offers a tongue-in-cheek warning to those who might take their reading too seriously. More traditional monsters become sympathetic narrators, like the newly ghostly mother in Barker’s “The Departed,” (1992) who will take a chance at terrifying her son just to touch him one more time. These stories blend sharpness and grace, making the anthology a worthwhile read for thoughtful horror fans. (July)
