Have you ever pictured a dream team of actors you would cast for one of your favorite books? Or two singers who would complement one another perfectly on a given song? How about two authors who just seemed made for one another? Gauntlet is pleased to publish, as a signed limited edition, the first collection of collaborations between Jack Ketchum and Edward Lee.
If ever two authors were ideally suited for one another, it’s Ketchum and Lee. The five stories and two original versions (one by Ketchum and one by Lee) that make up SLEEP DISORDER prove how well they work together. The title story is newly penned by the duo and was written expressly for this collection.
And, as with all of our other titles, we’ve added a few extras. Ketchum provides an insightful Afterword, and cover and interior art is by Harry O. Morris. Plus, you can first read the collaborations, and then take a look at the two original stories (one from each author) written before the collaboration. It’s truly a unique glimpse at how these two authors blend their tremendous talents.
All copies purchased through Gauntlet are signed by both Ketchum and Lee.
For those of you who purchase the Lettered edition, you’ll enjoy even more bonuses. Besides a bonded leather traycase, we’ve also added additional content, an interview with the authors conducted by fellow-author Tom Piccirilli.

EPITAPH #1 by Tom Picirilli (available only in the lettered edition)
“Tremendous talent is not even a strong enough word for what has been trapped within these pages. Ketchum’s visceral visions combined with Lee’s love of the truly twisted make for a wicked trip down some very unnerving paths.” — Horror-Web.com
“Both (Ketchum and Lee) are supremely entertaining and there’s little better to showcase their combined talents than this fulfilling mini-collection of tales. It’s always fun to write about sleazy, disreputable characters, and Ketchum-Lee don’t miss a trick in this slick effort that brilliantly melds their styles and themes.” — Chi Magazine
