"One hell of a fiction writer." Stephen King

First published as a limited-edition hardcover, The Death Artist collects 12 unforgettable tales that define the state of the art in modern horror.

"Etchison is that rarest of genre writers: an original visionary. His nightmares and fears are intensely personal, and his genius is to make us realize that we share them." Karl Edward Wagner

"Etchison is good. Really good. In fact, he reminds me of the early Richard Matheson Sr., who was so unbelievably precise in his psychological attack that you could hardly catch your breath...THE DEATH ARTIST is downright dazzling." Harry Shannon

"Exquisitely well-written and stunningly original." Publisher's Weekly
