Stephen Graham Jones is one of those writers whose name will live on well after his career ends. When we talk about great weird fiction, great horror, Jones is always in the conversation. He’s putting together a selection of stories and novel excerpts called The Faster, Redder Road. I am looking forward to it.
This collection showcases the best writings of Stephen Graham Jones, whose career is developing rapidly from the noir underground to the mainstream. The Faster Redder Road features excerpts from Jones’s novels—including The Last Final Girl, The Fast Red Road: A Plainsong, Not for Nothing, and The Gospel of Z—and short stories, some never before published in book form. Examining Jones’s contributions to American literature as well as noir, Theodore C. Van Alst Jr.’s introduction puts Jones on the literary map.
