In the vein of Richard Matheson's Shock collections and Stephen King's Night Shift, Coffin Dust culls twenty plus of David Daniel's short stories from the magazines where they first appeared. Varied in style and tone, these tales all possess, in the words of the late Theodore Sturgeon, "a touch of the strange." Moody, atmospheric, and sharply drawn, they present ordinary people who find themselves drawn into odd little corners of life. Daniel's previous works include White Rabbit, Reunion and The Marble Kite.

David Daniel was born in Boston and grew up in Weymouth, MA. He is author of ten novels. His book The Heaven Stone won the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America Best First Private Eye Novel contest and was a Shamus Award nominee. The book introduced private investigator Alex Rasmussen, who has also appeared in The Skelly Man, Goofy Foot, and The Marble Kite, all published by St. Martin's. Dennis Lehane has said of the series, "As a guide to the mean streets, there is no richer character than Alex Rasmussen." In addition to novels, Daniel has published nearly 100 short stories and 300 articles, book and music reviews. He has worked as a fast food chef, a janitor, a carpenter, a tennis pro, a truck driver, and a "brain slicer" at Harvard Medical School. Currently he teaches at Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School and is an adjunct professor at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, where he has served as the Jack Kerouac Visiting Writer in Residence. Daniel lives in Westford, MA with his family. He served as a consultant to a forthcoming documentary on Jack Kerouac's On the Road. Dennis McNally, official historian of the Grateful Dead, declared Daniel's suspense novel White Rabbit one of the best "Sixties' trips" he's taken. Reunion is his most recent novel. A new novel, Jack Kerouac's Ghost, will be published in 2010. He can be reached at www.daviddaniel.books.com
