Preorders start for deluxe edition of THE THICKET by Joe R. Lansdale
I’m pleased to announce Earthling’s special limited edition of THE THICKET by Joe Lansdale, “one of the more versatile writers in America” (LA Times). My favorite Lansdale work to date, Booklist gave it a starred review and said “Memorable characters, a vivid sense of place, and an impressive body count make THE THICKET another Lansdale treasure.” This will be a smaller, more collectible print run than many Lansdale limiteds. This hardcover will be beautifully designed inside and out with great care, featuring fine materials relevant to the tale (e.g., “saddle” leather), with multiple illustrations, and housed in a slipcase. It will include bonus pieces by the author and by David Morrell, and will be signed by Lansdale. To read more about the book and place your order, please visit: http://www.earthlingpub.com/jl_thicket.php (If you don’t, you’ll have to answer to Hog or to Eustace’s 4-gauge!)

THE SCARLET GOSPELS DELUXE EDITION IS COMING
Earthling Publications is thrilled to announce that we have acquired the rights to publish the limited, signed, deluxe edition of Clive Barker’s THE SCARLET GOSPELS. As a well-established publisher of Clive’s work, most recently having published an oversized anniversary edition of his epic dark fantasy WEAVEWORLD, we are thrilled to be doing this project that features two of Clive’s iconic characters, Pinhead and Harry D’Amour. Earthling published a deluxe edition of THE HELLBOUND HEART, which “gave birth” to the Cenobites, so it seems only fitting for us to publish a novel that will likely see the death of Pinhead. Clive calls GOSPELS “a HORROR NOVEL with the graphic violence and perverse eroticism of the most intense tales from the Books of Blood.” Details regarding print run, design, and special features will be announced and ordering will commence by January 1, 2015.
THE HALLOWEEN CHILDREN is published
"This latest installment in Earthling's annual Halloween series recollects the macabre and gruesome events that befall a suburban apartment. Delivered through a series of journal entries and interview transcripts, The Halloween Children goes beyond the creepy kids and paranormal hauntings tropes to deliver a disturbing and thought-provoking look into family dynamics and our own changing imaginations."
