Jack Ketchum’s Debut Novel Off Season to Get Anniversary Edition Treatment from Dark Regions Press
Jack Ketchum’s debut novel Off Season made a huge impact on the horror scene with its initial publication in 1980. It became so controversial that the original publisher withdrew their support of the novel. Now award-winning specialty publisher Dark Regions Press is bringing Ketchum’s debut novel back in its best form yet.
The 35th anniversary edition of Off Season includes the author’s originally intended version of the novel (uncensored), a new short story based in the Off Season universe, a new afterword from the author, the novella Winter Child, five full page interior illustrations by Tomislav Tikulin and stunning full color wraparound dust jacket artwork by David Stoupakis.
Available from Dark Regions Press on Tuesday, October 18th for preorder in two collectible formats: signed and numbered slipcased hardcover and deluxe lettered traycased hardcover. Production is slated to begin as soon as the preorder launches, meaning this volume will be in the hands of Ketchum fans by Q1 2017.
If the special treatment that Dark Regions Press gave Richard Laymon’s Night Show is any indication, Jack Ketchum fans are in for a beautiful volume with comprehensive materials to dig into.
