My first meeting with the late Craig Walker was for a series of books he wanted me to write called Shockers. The idea was to have horror stories with a completely unpredictable ending. He and I and a number of his staff would sit around and discuss my concepts for the stories and brainstorm them. Craig was an amazing editor with a real talent for spotting the strengths in stories and improving on them. It was always a pleasure working with him, and I think it's very telling that all of my best-loved works were created for him.

One of the great things about Shockers were the amazing covers. People often ask who painted them. They were all by Stephen Brennan, and they were all truly inspired.

What if your favorite musician wasn't all he seems? That he's in fact preying on his fans to stay not merely on top of the charts but also to stay alive. And what if you discovered where the bodies are stashed?
