    A collection of short stories by Johnson, many of which were bizarre or, I don t want to say violent but, gritty maybe I really enjoyed some of the stories but others were just okay I didn t like the last one as much but I really like the first two and god I can t remember the names of any them because after reading them all I kind of just lost track because I was enjoying them I do think that if drug abuse, mental illness, disability, death, gore, depictions of self harm, etc etc are hard for you to read you should avoid this one but I really really did enjoy it I loved how so many stories blurred the line between reality and perception where the narrator may just be mentally ill I especially liked the one view spoiler with the guy driving his brother who is mentally disabled that one made me cry I m not sure why because the conf...

    Chaos and entropy are two of my favorite words In a world in which we try to keep ourselves carefully defined and ordered, random occurrences and a breakdown of systems equate to freedom of impulse Is this a good thing Probably not, but the release of pressure and defiance of natural laws provide a measure of primal satisfaction The stories in this skillfully written collection confront us with situations that we would never expect to encounter Body modification separates the physical form from the cogitation process A sociopath in space observes the apocalypse and decides to put his own spin on things A young man explores what he is made of with a scalpel and horse tranquilizers A parasite invades a body that fully embraces change A pool in the canopy of The Redwoods provides ecstatic happiness, but at w...

    I m sitting here staring at this empty review box, drinking my coffee, wondering how the hell I m going to review this book without sounding like a ridiculous fangirl.Okay So My girlfriend Emily had this book and I kept lusting after the cover every time she posted it on Instagram One day, I get my mail and I had a package from Emily, it was this book.I put the book on the top of my TBR cover and I swear, that blooming skull called to me at night while I read other books.So finally, I couldn t resist it any and I figured I d just read a few of the short stories and go back to my regularly scheduled stack of books.After reading the first story, League of Zeroes I knew I wouldn t be able to stop until all the stories in this collection were read It was so bizarre the way Johnson was writing startling things in this very normative way, where you are just accepting what s happening but at the same time completely horrified.I explained to one friend that reading Jeremy Johnson s stories is like eating exotic food in a foreign land Every dish is new and exciting The flavor explosions in your mouth engage your whole body in the act of enjoyment all of it strange, dangerous, horrifying, immersive, thought provoking and unpredictable After each story, I would turn to the Author s Notes in the back and read the short blurb Jeremy wrote about it I ve never been so captivated, I honestly didn t want the experience to end Some of the stand out stories deserve me...

    His carefully crafted suit had gone cannibalistic Weird books for jaded readers.Huhabsolutely nailed it, Chris Chris provides me with all the internet wandering I need, she s my GR dealer and I love her for it Granted, I m not a big internet wanderer So, when she had a link to a bunch of recommendations for weird books for jaded readers I was like, That s me Skullcrack City was the one I wanted, but when I got to my library website they only had one Jeremy Robert Johnson book available to lend, now And I wanted it NOW Plus, the cover is so pretty and the title seductive that I couldn t resist Couldn t Inconceivable.This is a collection of short stories that appeared in various places over the years and well, you know that when the introduction says this The kind of readers who are willing to stand on the side of the literary highway and thumb down whatever vehicle comes by, who are willing to take chances than the average reader Every reader thinks that s them, I m a rebel , so I wasn t totally drinking the Kool Aid until I read...

    I picked this one up because my friend Sadie said that I needed it, and when Sadie says I need something she s never wrong Boy, was she right about this one.This is a collection of stories that will seriously be burned into my brain forever They are all so disturbing, so unflinching, and unique I ve never read anyone like Jeremy Robert Johnson, and I can t believe it took me this long to discover him I owe Sadie a huge thank you and one hell of a favor.These stories are all so different, but definitely maintain a voice that is distinctive to Johnson The collection starts of with a bang and offers the reader a dystopian future where body modification is so popular and extreme that a man admires a woman in a coffee shop after she s had her lips removed Yep, you read that correctly.This collection starts of bananas and just keeps upping the grotesque eeriness Dissociative Skills is a story that is seared into my brain forever now There s body horror in this one that will make you sincerely queasy Snowfall is such an eerie and melancholy story about a deaf boy who wakes up t...

    This is the best book I ve read so far in 2017 Truth is, Jeremy Robert Johnson s short stories are the finest I ve stumbled upon since I had the privilege of discovering Cameron Pierce and Jordan Harper s work in 2015 A couple names came to mind while reading ENTROPY IN BLOOM Harlan Ellison, Richard Matheson, Clive Barker, Dan Simmons, Johnson definitely belong to that group of enthralling storytellers Brian Evenson astutely points out in the foreword that anything goes in a Johnson story, but that he treats every premise with the utmost serious which is what makes his work so unique and vivid Among my favorites were Persistence Hunting, The Gravity of Be...

    There is something for every horror fan here whether you enjoy dark satire, straight up gross out horror, or psychological terror Beginning with The League of Zeroes which takes the art of body modification to blood curdling extremes and ending with the novella The Sleep Of Judges which was an unsettling tale of the aftermath of a burglary In between is a wild ride of love, desperation and how to survive the end of the world just like the cockroaches will This was my fir...

    One of the best collections I ve read, period Johnson s work is deep and dark and mines the nastiest, most vulnerable crevices of our psyches, but it s also fizzing good fun His prose is whip smart and has a furious momentum, and his characters are any combination of fallible, sympathetic, batshit insane, and or heartbreakingly, hilariously human Johnson s work could be categorised as weird fiction or bizarro or horror, but why waste time trying to put him in a box The scope and ambition of the guy s work just doesn t fit into any one set of parameters The stories here range from bizarre pulp black comedies to bleak character studies, a single moment or scene captured in slow motion to a choreographed descent into madness and horror O...
