Bestselling horror legend John Skipp has released his latest: an epic 632-page anthology entitled DEMONS: Encounters With the Devil and his Minions, Fallen Angels, and the Possessed. "And if you think the title is long," says Skipp, "you should see the table of contents!"
Ranging from certified classics to certifiable classics-in-the-making, each story wreaks havoc. Skipp provides fascinating and absurdly keen insights in two essays that examine the history and details of demon lore, as well as its role in pop culture. Resources at the end of the book include lists of the best long-form fiction, movies, websites and writers.
This collection of bone-chilling tales explores demons in their myriad forms: from spirit possession of the human soul to fallen angels to the devil. (stacilaynestacilayne www.horror.com
