In the dead of night, a man climbs the tower of St. Anthony's Church, driven by a compulsive urge to silence the bells.

In a deserted alley, a seemingly random victim is consumed by a torrent a flames.

And in the deceptive light of day, a mail-order businessman named Walt Stebbins receives a bizarre artifact - a glass jar containing the preserved body of a bluebird.

Things like this don't usually happen in a town like Orange, California. Ordinary people don't expect to face evil - real evil - in their backyards. But as Walt unravels the mystery of the bird in the jar, he learns that the battle between good and evil is taking place every day...

"Blaylock is one of the most brilliant of that new generation of fabulist writers: All the Bells on Earth may be his best book... mystical and enthralling... at once reminiscent of C.S. Lewis's That Hideous Strength and Clive Barker's urban fantasies." -- Washington Post Book World

"With acrobatic grace, Blaylock (*Night Relics*), winner of two World Fantasy Awards, once again walks the dividing line between fantasy and horror - this time, as he relates a deal-with-the-devil story set in suburban Southern California. ... Blaylock's gentle satire on 'capitalism gone rancid' is supported by his authentic rendering of a small town where the economic reality of having to pay the bills occupies much of people's time. While the author probes the dark side of small-town life, he ultimately celebrates the virtues of simple living, yielding the sort of homey moral one finds in a Garrison Keillor monologue." -- Publishers Weekly
