By Del James


“Del James has a personal knowledge of most of the situations he writes about, and has a love of the gutter from having been there.”

—W. Axl Rose

“Though 'Without You' ends in a blaze of melting skin and unimaginable emotional torment, it is by far the book’s tamest tale. The rest of the stories, while still firmly rooted in sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, are bona fide horror tales stemming from the grim side of the human experience – gritty, violent and unquestionably dark."

Jovanka Vuckovic, Editor-in-Chief, RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE

“Del James is fun. Of course, Hell is fun—if you’re one of the demons. That’s Del’s day job. After a hard day in Hell, he writes down what he saw. Good reading.”

—John Shirley, author of Living Shadows

"Del James writes like a cross-fire hurricane. Full of primal force and awesome energy, his stories leap out from the page, grab you and won't let you go. It's a shame horror didn't wake up and get the message of THE LANGUAGE OF FEAR back in '95. There might be a genre left now if it had."

—Paula Guran, DarkEcho.com

“The Language Of Fear could best be described as an updated Night Shift, the contemporary tales being short and nasty.”


After being out of print for ten years, THE LANGUAGE OF FEAR, a short story collection by Del James is now available once again as a Dell paperback by print on demand. One of the top-ten most sought after horror/sci-fi titles, THE LANGUAGE OF FEAR featuring an introduction by W. Axl Rose, the book contains fifteen terrifying tales that run the gamut from a married man about to murder his wife on the command of a dial-a-porn hooker, to outlaw zombie bikers, to a stoned teenager locked in a savage war with his television set. THE LANGUAGE OF FEAR also features the short story “Without You” which was the inspiration for the Guns N’ Roses video “November Rain.”
