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
