Ghost Brothers - THUMBS UP! The Cape takes OFF! King Photo in SKUU!
Yes, it's true.. we attended the premiere of Stephen King and John Mellencamp's musical play The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County last week. The play, the music, and production by T. Bone Burnett (which really set's the mood) was especially good. The last song before intermission, "Burn That Cabin Down," was just fantastic. With nineteen actors on stage singing this strong song, with the "Shape" (aka the Devil) mixing in between them, and a firey red moving backdrop, it was something to see. If you get a chance to visit Atlanta to see the production do. It's here at the Alliance Theater until May 13th.
We were able to attend the after party too, where uncle Stevie showed up - as you can see him with the Overlook crew here. I have over 30 photos up from the night on Facebook and you can click here to see them. I'm working on my blog review from the night but I'm not finished - somebody's gotta work around here to pay for these shindigs :-).
I will say I was never so proud as when I was able to introduce my wife and son, and the Overlook crew of Gene and Mandy to Steve. It was a wonderful night. I'll post the blog soon but check out the photos!
THE CAPE 2 SET HAS SHIPPED! All initial orders are now out and on the way. You can still order a complete set of 8 covers of this release from the Overlook. However the publisher has 2 issues already out of print before publication so this is your last chance to get a complete set before they're gone!
STEPHEN KING SPECIAL PHOTO! and ONLY AVAILABLE in the Signed Limited of STEPHEN KING: UNCOLLECTED, UNPUBLISHED Expanded Edition.
I asked Rocky if he wouldn't mind if I held the book up a bit to re-work the dust jacket to include a photo of him and Stephen King at the premiere party for The Ghost Brother's of Darkland County in Atlanta. This particular photo, taken by the lovely Donna Girard (thank you Donna!) shows a jubulant King and Wood and is only printed on the limited (not the trade edition).
With that in mind I'm offering a last chance on the Signed Limited of Stephen King: Uncollected; Unpublished. We're almost sold out of the signed 300 copies at this point, so don't hesitate to pick up a copy. Again, funds from this printing go to Rocky Wood's medical fund.

The World's Oldest Teenager Has Left the Building... and we say goodbye to Dick Clark, who passed away this week from a heart attack. From American Bandstand to the many other TV shows that Dick Clark produced I think most of us will remember him for Bandstand. Cue Barry Manilow...
And... we also lost Levon Helm from The Band and the man that played Patsy Cline's father in Coal Miner's Daughter. Good artist and musician who will be missed.
Remember.. We All Shine On!

OVERVIEW: A line has been crossed. After years of failure, Eric has finally found something he's good at, and is determined to let the world know. The follow-up to December's critically acclaimed, quickly sold-out one-shot, this new miniseries is again written by Jason Ciaramella and Joe Hill, with art by Zach Howard and Nelson Daniel. Explore your dark side.
This set Guarantees the Following:
== Each issue features 2 covers - A & B - this includes a total of 8 issues to complete this set.
== Each issue is covered in an acid-free cover with backing boards.
OVERVIEW: Born in darkness, they arise. Seductive angels of murder, madness, and horrors beyond imagining. COVEN Bathed in moonlight, they feed their darkest hungers in a festival of perversion and death, demented orgies that serve a cruel, unspeakable will... COVEN They are irresistible sirens in black, corrupting the living and raising the dead. Now the silent town of Exham will surrender to their loving embrace, their haunting beauty, and their ravenous need for human flesh. Surrender--and die... COVEN Beauty is only skin deep. More like a revved-up gross-out 70s B-movie, COVEN revels in its ultimate editorial no-no: its science-fiction dropped into a contemporary horror plot, something that horror editors seem to never buy. Maybe this one sold...because it works. Originally entitled THE WOMEN IN BLACK, this "turgid," original take on the Theres Something Fucked-Up At The College plot highlights Lees gross-out skills early on and demonstrates that pulp horror writers really can create fresh, well-developed, easy-to-realize characters. Cameos of Lees then-favorite beers--during his beer-snob days--appear in abundance, and Lovecraftian symbols abound (its fun just picking them out), but wait till you meets the gals in this book.
