Production Updates June 2022

June 09, 2022

The past couple of years have been challenging for our production partners and project queue and we sincerely appreciate the continued patience of our customers on these projects. New Dark Regions Press projects are no longer offered for public retail preorder as a way for us to reduce delays for our customers moving forward. We will continue working until every single preorder item is shipped. 

Production Updates June 2022

Return of the Old Ones: Apocalyptic Lovecraftian Horror Deluxe Signed Hardcover: the books are complete and with us right now! See above photos. Slipcase production starts this month and due to labor/supply chain issues our slipcase maker expects production to take around 90 days so we expect to start shipping this deluxe hardcover in slipcase by Fall. Thank you to everyone for your continued patience - we are very close to shipping this deluxe hardcover edition!

Malorie: A Bird Box Novel Special Edition by Josh Malerman: production is in process now and we expect the signed & numbered hardcover edition to ship by Fall/Winter! The deluxe lettered edition traycases will take around 90 days to produce so we expect the deluxe edition of Malorie to ship within 90 to 120 days of the numbered edition shipping. Watch for another update with photos when the numbered edition of Malorie is complete!

Offspring 30th Anniversary Edition by Jack Ketchum: the numbered edition hardcover books should be complete and shipping to customers by Fall/Winter! Traycases will take an additional 90 days to produce for the deluxe lettered edition so the deluxe edition should ship within 90 to 120 days after the numbered. Photos will be posted when the numbered edition is complete!

Prisoner of Violence by Joe R. Lansdale and Keith Lansdale: the graphic novel is fully lettered and designed and production is in process now - we expect trade editions to ship by Fall/Winter and deluxe signed hardcover editions to ship within 90 to 120 days after trade editions.

Transmissions from Punktown Edited by Brian M. Sammons: after a long trip the signature sheets have now been signed by all contributors and are headed back to us. These sheets will soon be sent to the printer/binder and once they have those sheets printing can start. We expect printing to start this Summer and for this deluxe hardcover with slipcase to be shipping to customers by end of year.

Dark Regions Press is committed to delivering all of these projects to our customers and we have significantly reduced new project development until we get caught up on older projects! Thank you again to everyone for your continued patience and watch for more updates in the future as more editions are completed.
