With an introduction by W. Axl Rose

Del James unleashes an extraordinary collection of snapshots from hell--our hell. Here are spine-chilling stories of everyday people, all caught up in terrible urges--sex and obsession, addiction and violence--all sharing the universal language of fear. . . .

A heavy-metal dreamer locked in a savage war with his television set. An artist seduced by a vampire. Two boys trapped by an urban legend come to life--or a drug-induced nightmare. A modern-day gladiator engaged in a brutal death match. A rock-and-roll star who years to be with the one good woman he has ever known--and so ignites a blaze of mad destruction.

Praise for The Language of Fear

" The Language of Fear is spoken in tunes of rock'n'roll, of barking dogs and net-trapped fish, of acid-sizzled flesh and tattoo needles, and after these few lessons, you'll speak it too." -- Cemetery Dance

"Pissed-off, heartbroken rock'n'roll horror: surprisingly tender, garage-band crude, savage as a shotgun blast and audacious as an exit wound." --John Skipp

"After a hard day in Hell, James writes down what he saw. Good reading." --John Shirley

"Best described as an updated Night Shift, the contemporary tales [are] short and nasty." --Cindy Baum, Scream Magazine
