David B. Silva has written seven novels, his most recent, All The Lonely People, a story about Chase Hanford, who owns a little bar at the edge of town, with a few regulars and not much else. Until a man shows up one day with a spirit box. When the contents of the box are released, Chase awakens with the realization that bits and pieces of his life are being stolen and he sets out to regain control of his very soul.Silva's first short story was published in 1981. His short fiction has since appeared in The Year's Best Horror, The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror, and The Best American Mystery Stories. In 1991, he won a Bram Stoker Award for his short story, "The Calling." His first collection, Through Shattered Glass, was published by Gaunlet Press in 2001. In 2009, Dark Regions published his collection of eleven new stories and one reprint, In The Shadows of Kingston Mills.He is probably best known as the editor of The Horror Show, which was published quarterly from 1982 to 1991. This small-press horror magazine won a World Fantasy Award in 1988 and went on to publish the first early works of some of today's most talented and influential horror authors, such as Bentley Little, Brian Hodge, and Poppy Z. Brite.Silva co-edited (with Paul F. Olson) two anthologies published by St. Martins Press: Post Mortem and Dead End: City Limits. In addition, he edited The Definitive Best of The Horror Show, published by CD Publications in 1992.In addition, from February 1997 until September 2002, and from late 2004 until the present, Silva served as co-editor (along with Paul F. Olson) of Hellnotes. Originally a weekly subscription newsletter dedicated to the horror professional and horror fan alike, Hellnotes is currently a free blog, updated several times a day with latest news in the horror genre.

This was an ok read, 2.5 stars from me.I've never been a huge fan of short stories, it takes a lot for them to be really good (in my opinion).Some of these stories were better then others, which I find to be the case in most of these collections. I think the stories range between 1 star and 3 stars....

This collection knocked around since the '90s with several publishers, starting with Arkham House, giving up on it. Cemetery Dance brought it out ultimately. It had been so long in the tennis court that Lansdale couldn't find his original introduction and had to write a new one! The collection i...
