The Collector’s Guide to Dean Koontz is now online!

May 7, 2018

Welcome to the brand new online version of The Collector’s Guide to Dean Koontz!

What makes this version different than the previous two?

  1. This isn’t just a blog. The blog continues as part of this site, but there is SO MUCH MORE.
  2. This site contains the content of what was going to be in the many-years-late print book from Cemetery Dance Publications. There still may be a book someday, not for now, it’s all available to you, for free, here on this site.

Though today is the official launch date, there’s still a lot of content that’s not on the site yet. As of today, I’ve entered everything from G-Z with some exceptions.

For those of you that like stats, at the time of this post there are 445 guide entries containing 1,044 individual editions and the site as a whole has 1,270 images. By my estimates, only about 50% of the content is in the site right now.

Feel free to comment, submit new content, I just ask that you first read Noah Mitchell’s Foreword, my Introduction, the About the Guide page, and the FAQ, before asking too many questions. There are a lot of answers already on those pages.

In the weeks and months to come I’ll continue to enter more content slowly but surely. Be sure to keep an eye here, or on Facebook or Twitter for continuing news and new content announcements.

The main Odd Thomas stories are done along with the film. The supplemental stories are on deck. However, I’m going to be incommunicado most of this coming week so please don’t expect much, if anything at all, as updates next week.

Working my way through the Odd Thomas series. Sadly, some of my source material was seriously miss-organized so I had to fix that first. This prevented me from getting further than I’d hoped this week.

A vampire named Dean

March 12, 2019

“The vampires were slithering in for the final kill.

“He shot two of them, but since his bullets weren’t silver, the wolves picked themselves up from the crushed snow and kept coming. The man reloaded. They were circling him now, drawing the noose tighter, lower jaws down and open as their long canine tongues flicked over fangs, lips drawn back in fierce grinning snarls, their eyes filled with blood lust and greed. Emma recognized them. Stephen… Ann… Chelsea… Peter… Dean, and perhaps Graham. Where were the rest of them?”

Just one new entry this week but it signals the push to get all of the Odd Thomas novels into the site finally. Also, I spent way too much time digging for the release date of a certain trade paperback edition which sadly revealed no results. Check out the entry for details.
