DJSturbia is home to monsters.

All kinds of monsters, from skyscraper-sized Godzilla (twice!) to the microscopic space germ known as the Andromeda Strain.

Monsters human and inhuman, from fictional psycho killers to the real-life terrorists of 9/11.

Lovecraftian horrors. Extraterrestrial insects. Giant serpents. Gargoyles and ghosts. Gunfighters and assassins. The battlefield monstrosities known as Warbirds, the alien invaders called Black Widowers, and — oh, yes — a little critter named Bob.

Classic monsters lurk here, too: That Creature from That Lagoon. That Thing from Another World. Monsters living, monsters dead … and in-between.

David J. Schow’s newest collection features his usual lucky thirteen short stories — shoot ‘em ups, horror noir, and surprises aplenty — plus, for the first time, a poison-candy sampler of thirteen additional essays covering everything from The Crow to live snake-handling.

A World Fantasy Award winner for short fiction, DJS has come to escort you into the dark suburbs of his imagination — DJSturbia.

From Publishers Weekly (Starred Review):

“This excellently chilling compilation of 13 short stories and 12 personal reminiscences covers the entire horror genre… Great writing, boundless creativity, and remarkable career recollections make this a truly wonderful compilation.”

From Booklist:

"Here be monsters—familiar monsters from comics and the big screen, deliciously hair-raising creatures fresh from the dark imagination of speculative fiction superstar Schow…Schow’s fiction affords chilling, genre-blending journeys introducing Godzilla as a big city crime boss; a tiny, vendetta-seeking creature named Bob; and an invasion by black widows that will prompt readers to sleep with the lights on."
