What a week and change! Great stuff happening in the indie horror community, these days, and no further proof needed than to see HOW MANY indie titles hit the Bram Stoker Award preliminary ballot.

Our 2020 hardcovers were pretty popular, and we will continue offering hardcovers in 2021. However, we fielded some interesting requests, and after brainstorming a little bit, we’ve decided to offer “deluxe” editions of our hardcover releases. These will include, at a minimum, a numbered hardcover featuring foil designs, housed in a custom slipcase and/or box, with a small art print signed by author and artist(s). Additional swag will include a sticker and an exclusive die-cut bookmark. Now, there is a lot of R&D going on right now, but here’s a look at some test-run prototypes:
