DJSturbia by David J. Schow
Trade Paperback – Cimarron Street Books – Sep 2023 – 372 pages
DJSturbia is home to monsters.
All kinds of monsters, from skyscraper-sized Godzilla (twice!) to the microscopic space germ known as the Andromeda Strain.
Monsters human and inhuman, from fictional psycho killers to the real-life terrorists of 9/11.
Lovecraftian horrors. Extraterrestrial insects. Giant serpents. Gargoyles and ghosts. Gunfighters and assassins. The battlefield monstrosities known as Warbirds, the alien invaders called Black Widowers, and ― oh, yes ― a little critter named Bob.
Classic monsters lurk here, too: That Creature from That Lagoon. That Thing from Another World. Monsters living, monsters dead . . . and in-between.
David J. Schow’s newest collection features his usual lucky thirteen short stories ― shoot ‘em ups, horror noir, and surprises aplenty ― plus, for the first time, a poison-candy sampler of thirteen additional essays covering everything from The Crow to live snake-handling.
A World Fantasy Award winner for short fiction, DJS has come to escort you into the dark suburbs of his imagination ― DJSturbia.
