Critters 2, Hocus Pocus, The Stand miniseries, Masters of Horror, Post Mortem and many more... with a horror fan's enthusiasm, a sharp director's eye, and a writer's relentless work ethic, Mick Garris has helped bring many horror projects to fruition on the big and small screen. In addition to scripting screenplays, Mick also puts pen to paper as a writer of fiction, and his latest novel, Salome, is being published by Cemetery Dance.

Written by Garris and featuring a cover illustrated by artist Alex Ruiz, Salome will be released in hardcover in January 2015 by well-known horror publisher Cemetery Dance. Salome is now available to pre-order on Cemetery Dance's website in two editions:

  • "Hardcover Limited Edition of 750 signed copies bound in full-cloth and Smyth sewn ($40)
  • Deluxe Hardcover Lettered Edition of 26 signed and hand-lettered copies bound in leather, Smyth sewn with a satin ribbon page marker, raised hubs on the spine, custom gilded page edges dipped by hand, and featuring illustrated endpapers ($175)"

"With the brilliant Salome, Mick Garris is at the top of his game, daggered and wise. Fiercely offbeat, its mystery mesmerizes, its wit beheading Hollywood's sunny decay. The writing astonishes and the desperate dreams of Garris's lost and magnificent will break your heart.

— Richard Christian Matheson

About the Book:

I thought I hated my wife. Until she was murdered.

I thought I knew her, too. Better than anyone.

The spouse is always the first suspect. You feel guilt regardless of how far you are from the scene of the crime. I couldn't help but feel complicit, that our mutual and growing hatred had somehow taken root and led to this. I knew it wasn't true in a legal sense, but I felt dirty with responsibility regardless.

Maybe I never really hated my wife. Maybe she just drove me mad. Maybe I would miss her.

But mostly, I needed to know who killed her, and why..."
