For more than three decades this singular collection of stories in which the New Gods of freeways and slot
machines, internal combustion deities and evil so enormous that it swallows the streets in shadow has compelled the
attention of not only readers of imaginative bent, but the praise of hard-line literary critics. One cannot codify modern
literature of the fantastic without including a reference or selection from this dark book of godly and troubling stories
that will not be ignored.
