CD magazine
  • Cemetery Dance had copies of issue #50 at HorrorFind. It contains -- among many other delights -- my interview with Mick Garris and my usual column. It also has Tony Magistrale's interview with King that previously appeared in Magsitrale's "Hollywood's Stephen King."
  • Great - cannot wait for my copy to show up in the mail!
  • Not only cannot I wait to get my copy as well, but I am anxious to receive the special hardcover bound edition that I ordered oh so long ago! :)
  • Great work Bev - column and interview. I have not seen the new version of Salem's Lot and your comments cemented my forebodings - changes to update a story are fine - changes that diminish or undermine a story happen far too often in the guise of adaptation.



    Great issue - I always read the columns first - still have to finish off all the fiction.



    Also enjoyed the three books not read list! Couple of shockers in there! And Bev - no Harry Potters? tsk tsk ;D
  • I've read one of the three books since then: The Turn of the Screw. My daughter had it in her grade 12 English class so we both read it.
  • Cemetery Dance #58 is on newsstands now and copies are in the mail to subscribers, and Cemetery Dance #59 (featuring Brian Keene, Steve Vernon, Stephen Mark Rainey, Sarah Langan, and many others!) is already deep in production. The final round of proofreading is nearly finished and we'll have the final cover design any day now -- and it will be headed to the printer in a week or so. In the meantime, we've posted the great Michael Bohatch artwork and the Table of Contents on our website and you can see a sneak peek of them below!







    Also note:

    We have GREAT news for fans of Cemetery Dance magazine, especially those who wrote us about our special Limited Edition of Cemetery Dance #50, which proved to be a real hit with collectors and basically sold out overnight!



    Last week our new handbinder delivered the deluxe signed & numbered Limited Edition hardcovers of Cemetery Dance #51, #52, #53, and #54 all at the same time! These special editions turned out beautifully and the feedback from collectors has been fantastic. #55 and #56 are with our binder now and we expect them later this summer, but don't wait to order our special Limited Edition Cemetery Dance Magazine Hardcover Bundle because we don't have many sets left to sell!



    Don't forget, these Limited Edition "Magazines" were designed specifically with our collectors in mind, with a special numbered limitation sheet signed by many of the contributors, a beautiful hardcover binding, and a special glossy version of the cover art inserted at the front of each copy with the artwork based signature sheet! These will not be sold on an individual basis, so everyone gets a complete set for their collections!



    Please note that your first FOUR signed Limited Edition magazine hardcovers will ship RIGHT AWAY, and the other two will ship this summer. Given that the retail price of these would be at least $75 each, you save over $100 off the retail price by ordering this bundle!

  • I finally received my contributor copies of #58 yesterday. My column is really dated -- The Gunslinger Born #1, Blaze and Duma Key weren't yet published when I wrote it, and The Talisman was still planned for TNT.



    I also have a feature book review on a hot new book that wasn't out yet: Heart-Shaped Box!



    Stay tuned in issue #59 while I tell you about my visit to a movie set: The Mist!



    I haven't written my column for #60 yet, so I'll get a chance to get back on track with reality.

    Here's an interview with Brian Freeman about the new face of CD magazine.
  • So Ellen Datlow is now part of the regular crew? She is an obvious excellent addition.
  • Don D'Auria from Leisure, too.
  • Yes, indeedy!
  • I think this is the first time I've had my name on the cover:







    Issue 63
  • Hard to believe it has not happened before for you.
  • As a general rule (there were exceptions, of course), the old cover design usually only featured the names of those who had contributed fiction and/or the names of any well-known authors who were interviewed, etc.



    The new design allows us to feature more names and information.  You're never going to have room for everyone, but this should allow us to give a better idea of what's inside each issue just by looking at the cover.



    Brian
  • Even when I had fiction in the magazine, I didn't make it to the cover!
  • Issue #63 is now out. It contains my cover review of Under the Dome, my column and also a review of Doug Clegg's Isis.



    Nanci Kalanta interviews Rich Chizmar
  • Got it in the mail today. Halloween issue? Its either very early or very late. :)

  • I have four pieces in the forthcoming Joe Hill special double edition of Cemetery Dance Magazine -- my usual column, two featured reviews and an interview with Hill.
  • Hmmm, they should call it the Bev Vincent quadruple special edition instead.  ;)

    Look forward to all the goodness coming in this one!
  • I was telling Brian Freeman that back in 2001, I had to wait three months for my first three columns to appear, to have enough professional sales to qualify for membership in the HWA, whereas I have more than enough in this one issue to do so!
  • heheh.
