Fort Worth writer Jonathan Shipley has never bought into "newer is better." Old houses, old furniture, and old portraits are his way of life, and like many collectors, he cohabits with more antiques than strictly fit into his house. He has had fantasy, science fiction, and horror stories published in dozens of magazines and anthologies, including SWORD & SORCERESS, volumes 25 through 29, and AFTER DEATH that won the 2014 Bram Stoker Award. However, he is actually a novel writer at heart and spends most of his writing time on a vast story arc that ranges from Nazi occultism to vampires to futuristic space opera.

After Death starts off with a cool premise, what happens after a person dies. Sometimes the stories occur immediately after death, sometimes it’s during a much longer time line. There is a mix of big name horror authors and lesser known ones, and overall a really good flow to the anthology. One of t...

How does the pacing of the story feel? When we first received the book, some of us at the book club were expecting for the some of the stories to be slow or uninteresting. We were wrong. Every story is able to captivate the reader even if it doesn't change his or her perception about death. Why woul...
