Overview
"An allegory for our time, full of creepy splendorand excitement . . . Demons is a brave and smart book. Read it if you dare."--San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Demons is funny, outrageous, and frightening, and, as a metaphor for our times, it works frighteningly well."--Rocky Mountain News

In a future uncomfortably close to the present day, the apocalypse has surpassed all expectations. Hideous demons roam the streets in an orgy of terror, drawing pleasure from torturing humans as sadistically as possible. Ira, a young San Francisco artist, becomes involved with a strange group of scientists and philosophers desperately trying to end the bloody siege. But the most shocking revelation is yet to come. . . .

Praise for Demons

"Barely street-legal, Shirley's Bosch-like visions mark him out as perhaps the closest thing contemporary American fantasy has to a genuine 'outsider artist.'"--William Gibson

"John Shirley is an adventurer, returning from dark and troubled regions with visionary tales to tell. I heartily recommend a journey with John Shirley at your side."--Clive Barker

"John Shirley writes like a runaway train. . . . Intensely suspenseful, visionary, surreal, and every bit as gritty and immediate and believable as a police report, this book will scare you, dazzle you, and delight you."--Tim Powers
