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.
