The Oyez Review (the literary magazine of the Creative Writing Program at Roosevelt University) has a new interview with Jack.
Cemetery Dance is now taking pre-orders for Shining in the Dark: Celebrating Twenty Years of Lilja’s Library.
Hans-Ake Lilja, founder of Lilja’s Library, has compiled a brand new anthology of horror stories to help celebrate twenty years of running the #1 Stephen King news website on the web!
This anthology includes both original stories like the brand new novella by John Ajvide Lindqvist (Let the Right One In), very rare reprints like “The Blue Air Compressor” (a LONG LOST Stephen King story that has never appeared in any of his collections and hasn’t seen print anywhere since 1981), and at least one classic tale that inspired Lilja’s love of the macabre at a very young age!
An exclusive Cemetery Dance Publications release, there are no other editions planned anywhere in the world for this incredible anthology!
This anthology contains the story “The Net”, by Jack and P.D. Cacek, and stories by Ramsey Campbell, Clive Barker, John Ajvide Lindqvist, Richard Chizmar, and more.

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.
