(1999)
A collection of stories by

 
 
About Ten Years Ago, William Gibson wrote: "... in some weird way, I've always thought of Shirley's writing as music. I don't think the vocabulary of lit-crit best describes the things John's fiction does best. Sometimes, reading Shirley, I can hear the guitars, like there's some monstrous subliminal wall-o'-sound chewing at the edges of the text ... his stories are rock, in some primal way. They well up from the same dark sea of backbeat and adrenal frenzy, and it's that, whatever that is, that makes them very special ... But you can't have special, I mean not really, without having strange ..." And some of the strangest was yet to come. Here are the weirdest of the weird, the strangest of the strange. John Shirley's Really, Really, Really, Really, Weird Stories slip out of the constraints of whatever labels have been put to them -- science fiction, fantasy, horror, erotica, suspense -- and into his own very special, indefinable, extraordinary literary universe. There's nothing we can do to prepare you. Nothing safe about it. No seat belts or crash helmets can protect you from the reality-shifting, thought-provoking, flat-out entertaining stories of John Shirley.
