Co-Author Writing and Double-Signed Books

Over 30 years ago, Stephen King teamed with Peter Straub to pen THE TALISMAN. It was a relative first in modern publishing for two bestselling authors to co-author a new work of fiction. Since then, it has become much more common. Clive Cussler has teamed with 10 different authors to write his numerous series. James Rollins has teamed with Rebecca Cantrell and Grant Blackwood. Blackwood has also written with Cussler and Tom Clancy. Other teams include scifi greats Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert, Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston, and thriller greats, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

Family writing teams include Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler, Dick and Felix Francis, Jonathan, Faye and Jessie Kellerman, Mary Higgins and Carol Higgins Clark, and most recently Stephen and Owen King.

VJ Books has relationships with these writing teams and many others, and are pleased to have this category dedicated to Double-Signed Books. These special volumes add value to any collection.

Of course Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and others lined my shelves, but it was a British author, Ramsey Campbell that truly inspired night chills. Incarnate, his 1983 masterpiece went a long way in defining the genre, and for me, had me sleeping with the light on for a long time.

Ramsey Campbell is considered by most everyone in the horror arena to be one of the best horror writers around. He’s respected and admired by readers and fellow writers alike, with each of his new books eagerly anticipated. Peter Straub considers him to be ‘one of the few real writers in our field. In some ways. . . the best of us all.’ Clive Barker‘s opinion is that ‘Ramsey Campbell writes prose as incisive and elegant as anything the mainstream can offer.,’ His press isn’t bad either, one paper proclaiming him to be ‘generally considered the nearest thing to God’ in horror fiction.
