The 15 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, After the People Lights Have Gone Off gets under your skin and stays there.
