Coming in early March, in English, THE FEVERISH STARS, the new story collection by John Shirley, with an Introduction by Richard Christian Matheson. Original illustration by Luke Spooner.
From Richard Christian Matheson's Introduction:
(...) In the ominous precincts of dark fiction, Byronic gangster John Shirley’s singular work is distinguished by swans and knives of prose; divine menace. Twenty of his finest stories are gathered in this volume of poetic distress calls; whether terror, horror or a cosmos seeping bleak karma. The many addicted to Shirley’s stunning work savor it as ground zero of the real deal; grace and sodium pentothal that autopsy and awaken; his voice shifting from satirical heresy, to heartache; torrents of shock.
Amid such traumas, a few to consider; tributaries to Shirley’s intoxicant spell. (...)
