The Century's Best Horror Fiction

Cemetery Dance is publishing a huge 2 volume set of horror fiction from some great authors including Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Shirley Jackson, Charles Beaumont, Jack Ketchum and more.  They will begin shipping in late January.  Pricing is $150 for the 2 volume 1st Editions.  For info or to purchase.

The King story is "The Reach".  First published in Yankee magazine in 1981 under the title "Do the Dead Sing" then in Skeleton Crew in 1985.

Stella Flanders, the oldest resident of Goat Island, has just celebrated her 95th birthday. She has never crossed the reach, the body of water that separates the Island from the mainland, in her entire life. She tells her great-grandchildren when they ask, "I never saw any reason to go." Stella comes to the realization that the cancer that she's known she has, and kept to herself, is it its final stages when she starts seeing the deceased residents of Goat Island. Her visions start with her husband inviting her to "come across to the mainland."
