Lividian Publications is pleased to offer their Deluxe Signed & Traycased Lettered Edition of The Chill by Scott Carson. This absolutely massive deluxe special edition is being lavishly crafted with collectors and readers alike in mind. Exclusive to their edition is a foreword by James Coltrane (a.k.a Stewart O’Nan), plus twelve full-color illustrations and a full-color frontispiece.

Please Note: This Lettered Edition has been produced by the same boutique printer and hand-binder who make their Stephen King and Joe Hill Lettered Editions. This means the books are printed offset using a four-color specialty press and an upgraded acid-free paper with a textured finish. Those book blocks then go to their hand-binder, who completes each copy one at a time, and then constructs matching clamshell cases to house and protect them. These are very different from a “regular” Lettered Edition you might receive from most small presses. A tremendous amount of manual labor went into producing this edition in the hopes of making it even more beautiful and special. Also, due to using an entirely separate printer and binder for this edition, it will be shipping before the Limited Edition, making it the true first of the special editions.

About the Book:
Far upstate, in New York’s ancient forests, a drowned village lies beneath the dark, still waters of the Chilewaukee reservoir. Early in the 20th century, the town was destroyed for the greater good: bringing water to the millions living downstate. Or at least that’s what the politicians from Manhattan insisted at the time. The local families, settled there since America’s founding, were forced from their land, but they didn’t move far, and some didn’t move at all… Now, a century later, the repercussions of human arrogance are finally making themselves known. An inspector assigned to oversee the dam, dangerously neglected for decades, witnesses something inexplicable. It turns out that more than the village was left behind in the waters of the Chill when it was abandoned. The townspeople didn’t evacuate without a fight. A dark prophecy remained, too, and the time has come for it to be fulfilled. Those who remember must ask themselves: who will be next? For sacrifices must be made. And as the dark waters begin to inexorably rise, the demand for a fresh sacrifice emerges from the deep…

About the Author:
Scott Carson is the pen name for a New York Times bestselling author and screenwriter. He lives in New England–just above a dam.
