FANGORIA Entertainment and leading specialty genre publisher
Cemetery Dance are teaming on a new series of lavish specialty hardcover books.
The first, FANGORIA: A CELEBRATION OF FEAR, will be a deluxe coffee-table book
collecting in full color Fango’s 300-plus magazine covers (the vast majority
designed by longtime executive art director W.R. Mohalley). In addition,
FANGORIA: A CELEBRATION OF FEAR will feature issue-by-issue commentaries, many
by the famous horror celebrities and filmmakers interviewed by the magazine
“I grew up reading each new issue of Fango from cover to
cover, so I couldn’t be more pleased and proud to be partnering up with them
for a brand-new line of books,” says Cemetery Dance president/publisher Richard
Chizmar. “FANGORIA and Cemetery Dance should make one heckuva team!”
Edited by editor emeritus Anthony Timpone, FANGORIA: A
CELEBRATION OF FEAR will be published in 2012. The hardcover will also showcase
an introduction by current Fango chief Chris Alexander and a “top secret”
foreword by one of Fango’s most famous fans. Future FANGORIA/Cemetery Dance
books will include a mammoth DR. CYCLOPS review compendium (to be assembled by
Fango managing editor Michael Gingold) and a collection of the best in new
horror short fiction.
“FANGORIA Entertainment is thrilled to be working with Cemetery
Dance,” says company president Thomas DeFeo. “Their specialty books have set
the standard for high-quality craftsmanship and offer horror’s most unique
voices. If these guys are good enough for Stephen King, they’re good enough for
FANGORIA. We look forward to working with Cemetery Dance’s Rich Chizmar and
Brian Freeman to create the finest possible FANGORIA hardcovers to delight our
dedicated fan base.”
