None of You Shall Be Spared

A collection of stories by

It's coming for all of us.

Shirley Jackson and World Fantasy Award-winning author Brian Evenson has become one of the defining voices of contemporary horror. His sparse, inventive and intimate style has left a permanent impression on the landscape of dark fiction. Praised by Peter Straub for placing himself “furthest out on the sheerest, least sheltered narrative precipice”, heralded by legends such as George Saunders and R. L. Stine, and beloved by readers of literary fiction and horror alike, there are few authors who bring so much to the table.

This brilliant collection contains twenty of his most spectacular short stories never put into a collection before and includes three brand new tales. In trademark Evenson fashion, one can feel a palpable connection to the yearnings, fears, and losses that his characters suffer. From the terror of being stalked by a man you thought you’d killed, to the desperate hope for the return of a loved one, each story is woven from deep imagination, sincere emotion, and the unblinking examination of everything dark that surrounds us.

These stories will enthrall you. They will leave a bit of themselves within you, and you will leave a bit of yourself within them. No one is safe from the web Evenson weaves, and none of you shall be spared.

Brian Evenson is the author of a dozen books of fiction, most recently the story collection The Glassy, Burning Floor of Hell (2021) and the Weird West microcollection Black Bark (2023). His collection Song for the Unraveling of the World (2019) won the Shirley Jackson Award and the World Fantasy Award and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times’ Ray Bradbury Prize for Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Speculative Fiction. Previous books have won the American Library Association’s RUSA Award and the International Horror Guild Award, and have been finalists for the Edgar Award. He is the recipient of three O. Henry Prizes, an NEA fellowship, and a Guggenheim Award. His work has been translated into more than a dozen languages. He lives in Los Angeles and teaches at CalArts.
