The trade paperback can be ordered from Amazon here.
The Bram Stoker Awards Weekend 2013 Souvenir Book included an excerpt from The Five, as well as an essay by Joe Lansdale entitled, “Rick McCammon, a True Southern Gentleman.” The cover for the book has been added to the Book Cover Gallery and can be seen here.
