From publisher Shane Ryan Staley:
"In January, Delirium released Tom Piccirilliís second major short story collection, MEAN SHEEP. The reviews have been coming in extremely positive and everyone is raving about the book. In this mailing list, Iíve started a new section called SPOTLIGHT just to showcase Delirium titles that I urge everyone to get before itís too late. Most of these titles spotlighted will be ones that are on the verge of sell-out or by up and coming authors that few have heard of but who will one day make their mark as one of the best this genre has to offer.
"Piccirilli, on the other hand, has already made his mark. He is considered to be on the best horror authors in print today. His short fiction is powerful storytelling with a flare like no other. If you have yet to pick up a copy of MEAN SHEEP, Iím going to sweeten the deal for you. Throughout the month of May if you order a copy of MEAN SHEEP directly through the Delirium website, Iím going to throw in a free trade paperback of your choice. Choose from the following:
Terror Incognita by Jeffrey Thomas
Up, Out of Cities That Blow Hot and Cold by Charlee Jacob
I Love You & There Is Nothing You Can Do About It by Gerard Houarner
Demons, Freaks, and Other Abnormalities by Michael Laimo
Guises by Charlee Jacob
Maternal Instinct by J. F. Gonzalez
Heretics by Greg F. Gifune
"Furthermore, Iíve discounted MEAN SHEEP at 40% off the cover price. It normally sold for $50.00, now itís only $30.00. As a third bonus, youĻll still be eligible for the free Corrosion Press chapbook Delirium will be giving away with orders placed through May."
Fangoria: "Before becoming one of the most prolific (and consistently entertaining) horror novelists around, Tom Piccirilli honed his craft on short fiction and poetry. MEAN SHEEP proves he hasn't lost his knack for these literary forms. This collection contains 16 stories and a variety of poems, and those readers used to the baroque neo-Gothic voice of most of Piccirilli's novels may be surprised by his range."
The Chiaroscuro: "Tom Piccirilli is one of those authors who can flat out write. His words have a lyrical quality that flows, that is simply a joy to read. And there is plenty of concept and depth to back up his impressive style and command of language. This is a guy who seems able to do it all, would appear to be headed down a path similar to those blazed by the great Joe Lansdale or the incredibly versatile Dan Simmons, two of the best cross genre authors working today. Horror. Mystery. Western. Tom Piccirilli has penned impressive tales in each of these fields."
