ABOUT THE AUTHOR
John Everson is the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of the novels Covenant (Leisure Books, 2008), Sacrifice (Leisure Books, 2009) and The 13th (Leisure Books, 2009). His first two novels were originally issued as limited edition hardcovers by Delirium Books, while The 13th appeared in a limited hardcover edition from Necro Publications. A Polish translation of Covenant was also issued by Poland's Red Horse Books as Demoniczne Przymierze in late summer 2007 and a translation of Sacrifice was issued in Poland by Replika Books as Ofiara.
"Letting Go," one of the short stories from Needles & Sins was nominated for a 2007 Bram Stoker Award and three other short stories from the collection have been included in the Honorable Mention List of the annual Year's Best Fantasy & Horror anthology co-edited by Ellen Datlow.
John is also the editor of the anthologies Sins of the Sirens (Dark Arts Books, 2008) and In Delirium II (Delirium Books, 2007) and co-editor of the Spooks! ghost story anthology (Twilight Tales, 2004). In 2006, he co-founded Dark Arts Books (www.darkartsbooks.com) to produce trade paperback collections spotlighting the cutting edge work of some of the best authors working in short dark fantasy fiction today (they have since produced four anthologies). He is also a digital artist and musician – some of his dark techno songs serve as the soundtrack to the horror fiction CD-ROM anthologies Bloodtype and Carnival/Circus, and in 2003 he scored Martin Mundt's comedic serial killer stage play "The Jackie Sexknife Show" in Chicago.
