Dear Constant Readers,
I have found a novel by the late Richard Bachman written in 1972/73, that I thought was lost. I found it—or rather, Ms. Mod found it—and I am hoping to publish it in 2007, with royalties going to The Haven Foundation. To whet your appetite, here are the first two chapters.
NEW YORK – World Fantasy Award-winning writer Stephen King, long acknowledged as the master of modern horror, will appear as a Guest of Honor at New York Comic Con taking place February 23-25, 2007.

For the last couple of years, I’ve from time to time mentioned the books I was reading (or the music I was listening to, or the movies I’ve been seeing). In the case of Meg Gardiner, a little more is necessary, because her five novels are, simply put, the finest crime-suspense series I’ve come across in the last twenty years (Continued) > Read the entire message

Many of you have been asking for more information about publication of Blaze following Steve's mention of it on his recent Lisey's Story book tour. This is another Bachman novel which he recently rediscovered. The original manuscript of Blaze was 173 pages long and was written in 1973. He has rewritten the first 100 pages. A lot of it needed editing to make it more timely since the 1973 references no longer worked. He's hoping to get it done by the end of the year. No publication deal has been signed, but he's sure there will be one.

Steve has just allowed us to announce something special regarding our limited edition of THE GREEN MILE. I apologize if this is the wrong place for the info, but I figured if there was a motivated group of readers anywhere who'd want to know, it'd be here.
Ten years ago, Stephen King introduced the world to the men who walked The Green Mile, to Eduard Delacroix, Arlen Bitterbuck, William Wharton, and the gentle, tragic, John Coffey. Now King invites you to walk The Mile with them.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary edition of The Green Mile from Subterranean Press, everyone who orders the commemorative multi-volume set (any version) direct from Subterranean will find their names included in a special section included at the end of Volume Six -- "Those Who Walked the Green Mile" -- that lists all those who met their end seated in Ol' Sparky.
This is an unprecedented, perhaps once-in-a-lifetime chance to have your name included in a Stephen King book, just one more reason to treasure this masterpiece, newly illustrated by Mark Geyer.
If you've already ordered this special edition, you're already on the list. But there's always room on The Mile for one more set of feet.
So come take a walk with Stephen King, and place your preorder for the Gift Edition. You'll go down in history...and live to tell the tale.
