Whether based in sf or fantasy, Shea's short fiction is not for the squeamish. Contents: Polyphemus (1981) The Angel of Death (1979) Uncle Tuggs (1986) The Pearls of the Vampire Queen (1982) The Horror on the #33 (1982) The Extra (1987) The Autopsy (1980.)1572ocn812252711book20130.14Shea, MichaelAssault on sunriseFiction"Curtis, Japh, and Jool are film extras, who-- with the help of a couple of very gutsy women-- survived being anonymous players in a 'live-action' film in which getting killed on-screen meant getting killed for real. Surviving the shoot made them rich enough to escape the post-apocalyptic Hell that L.A. has become. But their survival was not what Panoply Studios' CEO Val Margolian had in mind, especially since it cost his company millions. Now he's taking his revenge. After several plainclothes police are found dead in the former extras' new home, the bucolic, peaceful town of Sunrise, California, the entire town is subjected to Margolian's invidious plan to punish the entire town-- and make a fortune doing it. Margolian has created toxic, murderous wasp-like mechanical creatures to set upon the people of Sunrise, while his film crew captures the carnage in what promises to be the bloodiest 'live-action' film yet. With their haven from L.A. besieged by the deadly assault, the former extras-- and their fellow townspeople-- are faced with a grim task: to defeat the creatures and take back their town and their freedom" -- from publisher's web site1532ocn801086455file20110.14Bear, Elizabeth/ Gaiman, Neil/ Kiernan, Caitlin R./ Laidlaw, Marc/ Langan, JohnNew Cthulhu : the recent weirdFiction"In the early twenty-first century the best supernatural writers no longer imitate Lovecraft, but they are profoundly influenced by the genre and the mythos he created. New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird presents some of the best of this new Lovecraftian fiction--bizarre, subtle, atmospheric, metaphysical, psychological, filled with strange creatures and stranger characters--eldritch, unsettling, evocative, and darkly appealing."--P.

Curtis, Japh, and Jool are film extras, who--with the help of a couple of very gutsy women--survived being anonymous players in a "live-action" film in which death on-screen meant death in real life. Surviving the shoot made them rich enough to escape the postapocalyptic hell that LA has become. But their survival was not what Panoply Studios CEO Val Margolian had in mind, especially since it cost his company millions. Now he's taking his revenge. After several plainclothes police are found dead in the former extras' new home of Sunrise, California, the entire town is subjected to Margolian's own invidious plan to punish them--and make a fortune doing it. Margolian has created toxic, murderous, mechanical, wasp-like creatures to set upon the people of Sunrise, while his film crew captures the carnage in what promises to be the bloodiest live-action film yet. With their haven besieged by the deadly assault, the exiles from LA are faced with a grim task: defeat the creatures and take back their town and their freedom.
