Smoke And Mirrors from the Author: Richard T. Chizmar. Cemetery Dance Publications is proud to announce Smoke and Mirrors, a collection of screenplays, teleplays, stage plays, comic scripts, and treatments by thirteen masters of horror and fantasy. This deluxe oversized book reproduces the scripts exactly as they were written in the author's own formatting. This special edition will feature a deluxe 9 X 12 trimsize! Just a few of the highlights include a never before seen comic script from Joe Hill; two rare teleplays from Frank Darabont; an original, never filmed full-length screenplay by Mick Garris; a rare teleplay and treatment by William Peter Blatty; Neil Gaiman's original take on an H.G. Wells' short story; Joe R. Lansdale's stage adaptation of one of his legendary short stories; and much, much more! This Cemetery Dance Publications special edition is a World's First and there are no other editions planned at this time, so place your order today if you don't want to miss out! Tales of horror and the fantastic have been told in many ways over the centuries ‹ around the campfire, on the stage, in books and movies, and even on television ‹ but no form is quite so visceral and direct as the script. Whether it's a stage play, a feature film screenplay, or the script for a classic horror comic, these acclaimed authors aren't just putting black text on a white page. The writing may seem clean and simple at first, but the authors are actually creating worlds; they're luring you into their creations and before you know it, there's no way out. You're part of the story and you have to keep turning the pages until you reach "The End" or "Fade Out." The big question is: will you survive to see the final curtain call? Come now, take your seat, and let the show begin. You have nothing to fear but your own imagination.

Carson Mccullers Stories Plays Other Writings from the Author: Carson McCullers. Celebrated worldwide for her masterly novels, Carson McCullers was equally accomplished, and equally moving, when writing in shorter forms. This Library of America volume brings together for the first time her twenty extraordinary stories, along with plays, essays, memoirs, and poems. Here are the indelible tales “Madame Zilensky and the King of Finland” and “A Tree. A Rock. A Cloud.” as well as her previously uncollected story about the civil rights movement, “The March”; her award- winning Broadway play The Member of the Wedding and the unpublished teleplay The Sojourner; twenty-two essays; and the revealing unfinished memoir Illumination and Night Glare. This wide-ranging gathering of shorter works reveals new depths and dimensions of the writer whom V. S. Pritchett praised for her “courageous imagination—one that is bold enough to consider the terrible in human nature without loss of nerve, calm, dignity, or love.” From the Hardcover edition.

Genesis Of An American Playwright from the Author: Horton Foote. In Genesis of an American Playwright Horton Foote, one of the greatest American playwrights of the twentieth century, reflects upon his journey from his childhood in Wharton, Texas, through his early experiences as an actor in the theatre, to his mature vocation as a playwright. All along the way, Foote carefully identifies the people and influences that shaped his character and nurtured his art. What is remarkable about this book is equally remarkable about his drama: he writes with an effortlessness that belies the intimacy of the art emanating from deep within. The stories are simply told, but complex in their resonance. Foote not only reveals his immediate professional world, but he also provides a running commentary on the changes in American culture. This book makes for as fascinating reading as it does compelling history. On December 20, 2000, President Bill Clinton conferred the National Medal of Arts on Texas dramatist, Horton Foote, and noted that Foote's six-decade-long, award-winning career established him as the nation's most prolific writer for stage, film, and television. Foote's many awards include two Academy Awards, an Emmy, a Burkey Award and the Screen Laurel Award from the Writers Guild of America, the Lucille Lortel Award, and his induction into both the Theatre Hall of Fame and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Without question, Horton Foote has enriched American literature with his unique writing style and his truthful examinations of the human condition. Besides To Kill A Mockingbird and The Trip To Bountiful, Foote has written a score of notable plays, teleplays, and films.
