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.

We’re several people short at my day job so I’m not exactly up to working on this a whole bunch to be honest. The holiday’s aren’t going to help. But I’ll keep chugging along the best I can. I will say I’ve got some posts pre-scheduled for the next week or tow so even if there aren’t updates like these you’ll still be getting new content. Happy holidays!

Check out The Blog of Counted Sorrows

December 7, 2021

A blogger going by the name “improperenglish” has started The Blog of Counted Sorrows in which they review books by Dean. There’s just four so far but they’re much better written than many non-professional reviews are. I’ve already subscribed myself and look forward to future entries.
