This collection of short stories displays Ed Gorman’s talents as a masterful storyteller across a range of genres.

A mysterious and beautiful girl who teaches arrogant young men about true love, a lonely traveling salesman who learns that his passenger is Death, children who can absorb the psychic pain of their parents, a desperately pursued serial killer who hides his face under gauze in a hospital room, and a woman who loves the alien infant nobody else wants—these stories and ten others make up this collection by award-winning author Ed Gorman. Here are stories that led him to be called “one of the best” by Dean Koontz and “one of the most original writers in crime fiction today” by Kirkus Reviews. Here you’ll find the extraordinary range of storytelling skill and powerful emotions that won Gorman the prized International Fiction Award.

Included in Different Kinds of Dead, and Other Tales are “Different Kinds of Dead,” “Deathman,” “A Girl like You,” “Loverboy,” “Muse,” “Riff,” “The Brasher Girl,” “Survival,” “Masque,” “Second Most Popular,” and others.

This collection reveals the extraordinary range of storytelling skill and powerful emotions that won Gorman the prized International Fiction Award. His protagonists, gritty and gruff, are strangely likable, and his writing, according to Mystery News, is “powerful, disturbing, [and] often poetic.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “Runs the gamut in terms of sub-genres to include Americana historical, western, science fiction, horror, and of course contemporary…The tales are all well written, and in spite of the relative size, each grips the audience who will not be able to guess what comes next…A strong collection.”

    Readers Guild

  • “In the title story, a solitary man’s encounter with a ghost challenges his definitions of life and death, while in ‘Emma Baxter’s Boy,’ a childless woman unexpectedly gives birth to something not human—and always hungry. From alien births to ghost stories to tales of horror and historical suspense, the fifteen selections presented here span more than twenty-five years of superb storytelling by an International Fiction Award-winning writer whose cross-genre approach to suspense should appeal to readers of short stories in general and sf/horror in particular.”
