There is no greater 'master of horror' in the history of the genre than Stephen King, who has written some of the most enduring tales of fright of all time. King burst onto the scene in the early 70s with books like Carrie and The Shining, and he's still to this day churning out incredible works of written art, including the recently released Shining sequel Doctor Sleep.

In celebration of the King's 40+ year reign of terror, Cemetery Dance Publications has just announced that they'll be releasing six of his classic works in the form of Special Edition books, which are going to be as limited as they are deluxe. First up will be Carrie, set for release in the summer of this year, followed by Salem's Lot, The Shining, Night Shift, The Stand and Pet Sematary; all books that defined King and made him a household name, in the 70s and early 80s.

Like all of these Special Edition books will be, Carrie is jam packed with bonus features including an introduction by King as well as brand new interior and exterior artwork. It's now available for pre-order over on Cemetery Dance's website, with one edition (limited to 3,000) selling for $85 and another (limited to 750) going for $225. An even more limited version sold out in less than an hour, and the others aren't expected to last too much longer.

Head over to Cemetery Dance Publications to learn more and pick up a copy for yourself. The other five books in the series will be released in six month increments.
