Not yet but it will be available to preorder within the next few months.

Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 372 comments I've been looking for some of those (and realizing I can't afford/find most that I don't already have) since I read PAPERBACKS FROM HELL. :)

We're thinking about it! I'll let you know if we're able to do it. :)

Justin Summerville | 33 comments I'm definitely interested. Sure, I'll probably be interested in the more prestigious titles such as those previously republished as collector's editions (Bari Wood's THE TRIBE, for instance) and those names I may be more familiar with in my limited research, but you never know what you'll find, so I'm hoping to be really surprised. (I actually haven't read Paperbacks from Hell yet - I wish to change that, so I have more of an idea what's coming).

Also, this may be an opportunity to finally get the rights to those titles that you've been trying to get for some time now. For instance, is there any chance of finally snagging William H. Hallahan's THE SEARCH FOR JOSEPH TULLY now?

We found out recently we will not be doing anything with the JOSEPH TULLY book.

Shame. Still looking forward to the rest of the series, of course.

Though I have to ask (and I hope I'm not beating a dead topic), is anyone else going to be publishing the book? Has someone else gotten to it already? (I ask because a similar thing happened with T. E. D. Klein's THE CEREMONIES, which I am now glad to say is offered as a reasonably priced trade paperback by PS Publishing!)


LAST MINUTE UPDATE: Forget it, I found it myself. Dover Publications is releasing the book on Oct. 17, 2018. Well, at least it's getting reprinted, and that's the good news. Hey, thanks for trying!

Since PAPERBACKS FROM HELL came out, Will, there are many us that are very excited to see these old faves coming back. You played no small part in that, so thank you. :)

Kelly Cozy (kellycozy) | 2 comments So excited by this news! I've read Paperbacks from Hell several times, and there are many, many books I would love to add to the shelves, but budget doesn't permit. When Darkness Loves Us sounds like a great choice to kick things off (though I confess I'm hoping for Eat Them Alive and Let's Go Play at the Adams', because I have questionable taste).


Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 372 comments I can't wait to see what Valancourt brings us! I searched for some of the Paperbacks from Hell for days, and if not outright "not available", the prices are astronomical!
