A Mountain Walks in July


June 15, 2014 by Laird

No ordering information yet, but it looks impressive. I have an original novella in there called Man with No Name. More in July.

From the Centipede press release:



This massive book, which Jason V Brock has nicknamed The Cube for some reason, is nearly finished. At the printer’s right now, it should be off the press and in our hands by mid to late July. Here is a look at the title page, with artwork by David Ho:

     This book has over 25 stories, including new stories by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Donald Tyson, Cody Goodfellow, Caitlin Kiernan, Laird Barron, Michael Shea, Patrick McGrath, Mark Samuels, Gemma Files, and others. The book also has new artwork by David Ho, John Kenn Mortensen, and Thomas Ott.

     The edition is limited to 500 copies for sale. Each copy is signed by Thomas Ligotti, T.E.D. Klein, Laird Barron, Caitlin Kiernan, and many others. The signature pages are signed by 25 people and went halfway around the world for signatures. The book is 692 pages. There are several pages of full color artwork, too.

     The book is oversize as well, measuring over 7 x 11 inches tall. The book comes in its own clothbound slipcase and has a stunning full color dustjacket by David Ho and the usual goodies: image on the front board, ribbon marker, and head and tail bands in a gorgeous cloth bound Smyth-sewn book.

     Best of all is the price, which will be on sale for a couple weeks for a great deal. This has not yet been determined, but we could say that you’re not likely to get more book for less money than any other limited edition this year. This title has been a long time in the making and with the stellar cast of authors, new stories, excellent reprints, amazing artwork, and impressive list of signees, this will for sure be a classic volume in the field. More information should be coming in the next few weeks.

    Sweet! Are you also one of the 25 signees?

    I’m very excited about this unique publication: Both for the stories and art. Please keep your loyal readers informed regarding when this book becomes available. This is clearly an anti-kindle book.

    Thanks, Jonathan. I shall.
