tt-edwards-2From Subterranean Press:

We are knee deep in fangs and blood. Robert McCammon’s vampire epic, They Thirst, has stationed itself in our warehouse. Copies are flying out the door as quickly as we can make it happen. If you’d like one, now’s the time to order. Though we have far more distributor and large online retailer orders than we can fill, we’ve set the last twenty-five copies aside for direct orders.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies: $80

From Publishers Weekly:

Apocalyptic catastrophe collides with deeply intimate fears in this hardcover incarnation of McCammon’s 1981 paperback horror novel… Pathos and tragedy reverberate beneath bawdy sexual tension and violence in a seamless fictional cocktail for genre devotees. As readable today as when first published, this savage yet elegant shock show succeeds as crowd-pleasing storytelling as well as a time capsule of the 1980s horror aesthetic.

From Subterranean Press:

Kirkus Picks THEY THIRST as One of Twelve Excellent Horror Reads for October

They_Thirst_by_Robert_McCammon_Large.jpg

The advance copies of Robert McCammon’s vampire epic, They Thirst, which clocks in at over 600 pages, have landed here at SubPress. I must say they look mighty fine! If wide-screen storytelling, with a lot of characters and action are your thing, please get your order in. Not including several orders which are due any day, we have orders for more than 1200 copies, and the print run is limited to 1000. We’ll fill all direct orders, of course, but some of our larger accounts aren’t going to receive as many copies as they might like.

Kirkus Reviews just included They Thirst in its 12 Excellent Horror Reads for October:

What’s Halloween without vampires? In this deluxe version of the McCammon’s classic vampire story, readers unfamiliar with this 30-year-old story can discover that it still remains chilling. In the small Hungarian hamlet of Krajeck, a boy named Andre awaits the return of his father from a dangerous mission. However, the being that returns is no longer his father, and Andre and his mother barely escape with their lives. Decades later, Andre—now living in Los Angeles and going by the name Andy—is working as a homicide detective who deals with death on a day-to-day basis. But even that can’t prepare him when the horrors he encountered as a young boy return, arriving in LA to terrorize him yet again.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies: $80

Subterranean Press posted this on their website today:

They_Thirst_by_Robert_McCammon_Large.jpgOctober will be Robert McCammon’s month. His vampire epic, They Thirst, rises from the earth in a gorgeous new edition, one which is now over 85% sold out before we’ve received any large online retailer orders. Collectors please note that the Lettered Edition is now open to general ordering. There’s a limit of one copy per person, household, or plane of existence.

As Publishers Weekly noted about this classic:

Apocalyptic catastrophe collides with deeply intimate fears in this hardcover incarnation of McCammon’s 1981 paperback horror novel… Pathos and tragedy reverberate beneath bawdy sexual tension and violence in a seamless fictional cocktail for genre devotees. As readable today as when first published, this savage yet elegant shock show succeeds as crowd-pleasing storytelling as well as a time capsule of the 1980s horror aesthetic.

About the Book:

First published in 1981, They Thirst was Robert McCammon’s fourth novel, and it remains one of the major milestones of an ambitious, constantly evolving career. Like its predecessors—Baal, Bethany’s Sin, and The Night Boat—They Thirst made its initial appearance as a paperback original. In the years since, it has acquired an intensely devoted following, and is now widely regarded as one of the significant vampire novels of the 20th century.

The story begins in the tiny Hungarian hamlet of Krajeck, where nine-year-old Andre Palatazin awaits the return of his father from an unspecified—but clearly dangerous—mission. The man who finally returns is no longer Andre’s father—is no longer, in fact, a man. Pursued by this undead entity, Andre and his mother barely escape with their lives. Decades later, Andre—now Andy—Palatazin is a homicide detective in the Los Angeles Police Department, and spends his days dealing with the quotidian terrors of a large metropolis. His life takes a darker turn when the demonic forces he first encountered in Krajeck arrive in L.A., led by an ancient vampire known as The Master. The Master’s plan: to overrun the city and use it as a stepping-stone toward wider, ultimately global, domination.

They Thirst marks the earliest appearance of McCammon’s penchant for epic, wide-angled narratives. With the unobtrusive ease of a natural storyteller, the author propels a wide assortment of vividly created characters through an apocalyptic scenario that combines gritty urban realism with a powerful portrait of supernatural forces at large in the modern world. The result is a genuine classic of the genre, a novel that is as fresh and absorbing today as it was more than thirty years ago.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies: $80
Lettered: 26 signed leatherbound copies, housed in a custom traycase: $275
