Stephen Graham Jones reads with his new fiction collection AFTER THE PEOPLE LIGHTS HAVE GONE OFF for the first time in Boulder, CO.
"Stephen Graham Jones is a great devourer of stories, chewing up horror novels and detective stories and weird fiction, ingesting literature of every type and pedigree, high and low and everything in between. His stories betray his encyclopedic knowledge of genre and of storytelling, but what makes After the People Lights Have Gone Off unique is how Jones never rests among his influences, going beyond what other writers might dare to craft terrors and triumphs all his own."
—Matt Bell, In the House upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods
"If I've read better horror writers than Jones, I've forgotten them. He's at the apex of his game. After the People Lights Have Gone Off is the kind of collection that lodges in your brain like a malignant grain of an evil dream. And it's just going to be there, forever."
—Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All
