This surreal journey of self-discovery and transformation at once questions the nature of our world, and redefines it in the context of 21st century pop culture and technology. It takes a writer of John Shirley’s talent and audacity to bring together elements as disparate as Shakespeare, Nietzsche, on-line role playing games, soap operas, and classic mythology – binding them together, creating a heady mélange on, above, and below the streets of Manhattan.
An ancient evil deep beneath New York City turns subway stations into bloody altars for ritual sacrifice. Monsters made of blood arise from drains, an invisible hellhound devours human flesh, feral children stalk the shadowy streets and make murder a terrifying game.
Into a Southern California rife with the machinations of Hollywood, the lure of drugs, and the slick sheen of sex, comes a nameless, ancient evil, a destroyer that completely ravages its victims, body and soul, leaving behind only wet bones. Blending supernatural horror worthy of Lovecraft with a razor-sharp, outlaw street savvy, Shirley presents a visceral, terrifying tale sure to sear the psyche of unwary readers.
