Twenty of his stories were published as part of the Fastback Mystery seriessingle short stories released in book form. Despite praise from prominent writers from within the genre, including Stephen King and Dean Koontz, Laymon was little known in his homelandhe enjoyed greater success in Europe, particularly in the United Kingdomuntil his affiliation with Leisure Books in 1999. Laymon believed that this was a result of a badly-edited first release of The Woods Are Dark, which had had over fifty pages removed. The poor editing and unattractive cover art stalled his career after the success of The Cellar. Laymon's original version of The Woods Are Dark[2] was finally published in July 2008 by Leisure Books and Cemetery Dance Publications after being reconstructed from the original manuscript by his daughter, Kelly.
