Lividian Publications is pleased to offer our Deluxe Signed & Traycased Lettered Edition of The Store by Bentley Little, which many people consider to be his greatest achievement to date. Exclusive to our special editions of this title are a brand new introduction by Bentley Little, a foreword by Jeff Strand, plus this Lettered Edition features sixteen full-color illustrations by Dirk Berger. This finely crafted volume was produced by the same boutique printer and hand-binder who make our Stephen King and Joe Hill Lettered Editions. The books were printed separately from the Limited Edition using a four-color specialty press and an upgraded acid-free paper with a textured finish. Our case maker then constructed the matching clamshell cases to house and protect them.

About the Book:
“Best outright horror novelist? Bentley Little, in a walk… he can go from zero to surreal in 6.0 seconds.”
— Stephen King

Juniper, Arizona, is an off-the-map town the retail giant called The Store has chosen for its new location. Now everything you could possibly want is under one roof, at unbelievable prices. But you’d better be careful what you wish for. This place demands something of its customers that goes beyond brand loyalty. At The Store, one-stop shopping has become last-stop shopping.

Bill Davis is the only one in town who senses the evil lurking within The Store, but he can’t stop his two teenage daughters from taking jobs there and falling under the frightening influence of its sadistic manager. When Bill finally takes a stand, he will get much more than he bargained for…
