Bestselling horror legend John Skipp has released his latest: an epic 632-page anthology entitled DEMONS: Encounters With the Devil and his Minions, Fallen Angels, and the Possessed. "And if you think the title is long," says Skipp, "you should see the table of contents!"
Ranging from certified classics to certifiable classics-in-the-making, each story wreaks havoc. Skipp provides fascinating and absurdly keen insights in two essays that examine the history and details of demon lore, as well as its role in pop culture. Resources at the end of the book include lists of the best long-form fiction, movies, websites and writers.
This collection of bone-chilling tales explores demons in their myriad forms: from spirit possession of the human soul to fallen angels to the devil.
About the Author
John Skipp is a New York Times bestselling author and editor, whose 18 books have sold millions of copies in a dozen languages worldwide. His first anthology, Book of the Dead, laid the foundation in 1989 for modern zombie literature, bringing George Romero's vision of the dead next door to new levels of scope and intensity. He later edited three more zombie anthologies, including Mondo Zombie, which won the Bram Stoker Award for best anthology, and Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead and Werewolves & Shapeshifters: Encounters with the Beast Within, both published by Black Dog & Leventhal. Skipp is recognized as splatterpunk's founding father and the elder statesman of the genre. His own legendary horror works include The Light at the End, the Scream, Jake's Wake and the Long Last Call. He lives in Los Angeles.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
The writers within are talented. You will definitely find a few stories to love here. The variety of tales in this tome is devilishly good! A few classics await you, like Poe's The Black Cat and W.W. Jacobs' The Monkey's Paw. An excerpt from The Exorcist by Blatty is included. Alongside these are stories by modern masters like Matheson, McCammon, Little, and Gaiman. Then there are the little-known gems by writers like James Steele (The Empty Church). A pastor gets a congregation of demons. Very weird.
Great book. BUY IT.
