One of the most popular and notorious horror novels ever published, The Fog was immediately branded as a needlessly violent hack work, but is now recognized, thanks largely to the efforts of Ramsey Campbell and Stephen King, as a classic in the field. This is the first time the book has been published in hardcover in the United States, and as such it is a true first edition. And, of course, the definitive edition. This edition also features some very fog-like translucent overlays and color prints, plus four color printing on the front and back covers.
Ramsey Campbell has contributed an excellent new introduction to the novel. This edition includes an foreword by Herbert and two bonus short stories, plus the original artwork by Tim White, as well as the Signet paperback artwork. Smyth sewn, with head and tail bands, yellow ribbon marker, and translucent title pages. Set in Caslon, the book is 384 pages and is over 6 × 9 inches tall. Limited to 300 copies, each book is signed by James Herbert and Ramsey Campbell.
