There are hundreds of reviews and ratings for AFTER THE PEOPLE LIGHTS HAVE GONE OFF and there’s not much I can add to what’s already been said.
I love how this man writes and his powers of description. It takes concentration to properly read his prose and during this time of near constant distraction, (there’s a pandemic going on), the fact that he captured my attention and held it, really says something.
There’s a ton of variety here, my favorites being DOC’S STORY, SECOND CHANCES, THE SPINDLY MAN, UNCLE and THE SPIDERBOX. There’s also an excellent introduction from Joe R. Lansdale, wherein he talks about some of his favorite stories.
I enjoyed the hell out of this collection and maybe it’s just the thing to distract you during this uncertain time?
*I bought this paperback with my hard-earned cash.*
