WINNER, Best Collection of the Year, THIS IS HORROR
NOMINATED, Best Collection of the Year, BRAM STOKER AWARDS
NOMINATED, Best Collection of the Year, SHIRLEY JACKSON AWARDS The fifteen stories in After the People Lights Have Gone Off by Stephen Graham Jones explore the horrors and fears of the supernatural and the everyday. Included are two original stories, several rarities and out of print narratives, as well as a few "best of the year" inclusions. In "Thirteen," horrors lurk behind the flickering images on the big screen. "Welcome to the Reptile House" reveals the secrets that hide in our flesh. In "The Black Sleeve of Destiny," a single sweatshirt leads to unexpectedly dark adventures. And the title story, "After the People Lights Have Gone Off," is anything but your typical haunted house story. With an introduction by Edgar Award winner Joe R. Lansdale, and featuring fifteen full-page illustrations by Luke Spooner, After the People Lights Have Gone Off gets under your skin and stays there. Table of Contents:

Review quote

"If I've read better horror writers than Jones, I've forgotten them. He's at the apex of his game. "After the People Lights Have Gone Off" is the kind of collection that lodges in your brain like a malignant grain of an evil dream. And it's just going to be there, forever."
--Laird Barron, author of "The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All"

"Stephen Graham Jones is a true master of the horror short story. Inventive, quirky, unexpected and masterful."
--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of "Fall of Night" and "Bad Blood"
