Stories New and PreownedBook - 2007
One of the darkest, edgiest, boldest writers around, John Shirley lays downan adrenalized yet artful prose that fairly skids across the page, dragging thereader along into shadowed corners of terror and desire. Yet while it'sthrilling, there's psychological depth, too, as Shirley bores into the brains ofhis characters, revealing the motivations of those who walk on the wild side. Many writers extrapolate from peripheral observation and research, but JohnShirley's stories come from personal experience with extreme people and extrememental states, and his struggle with the seductions of addiction. On thestreets, in the midst of darkest suburbia, or just beyond consensus reality -Shirley brings the shadows to vivid life.
