"A nightmarish yet hilarious journey that begins in the ugly world of toxic mortgages and progresses to the slightly uglier world of brain-eating monsters lurking in dark alleys. You're in for an entirely unpredictable ride, the tale spinning ludicrously out of control as the hero uncovers layer after grotesque layer of a vast macabre conspiracy. Skullcrack City is original, utterly insane, and a shitload of fun."—David Wong, author of John Dies at the End
You weren't always an agent of the apocalypse. You used to be a banker. Who knew that too much coffee and a few bad decisions would lead to the end of the world?
Life as a corporate drone was killing S.P. Doyle, so he decided to bring down the whole corrupt system from the inside. But after discovering something monstrous in the bank's files, he was framed for murder and trapped inside a conspiracy beyond reason.
Now Doyle's doing his best to survive against a nightmare cabal of crooked conglomerates, DNA-doped mutants, drug-addled freak show celebs, experimental surgeons, depraved doomsday cults, and the ultra-bad mojo of a full-blown Hexadrine habit. Joined by his pet turtle Deckard, and Dara, a beautiful missionary with a murderous past, Doyle must find a way to save humankind and fight the terrible truth at the heart of...

"Johnson is a master of mood, seamlessly combining the literary with the grotesque. Horror fans will find much to chew on, and these stories will certainly reach a wider audience. Johnson deserves to be a household name, as this superb collection makes clear."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Available in trade paperback for the first time, a collection of cult sensation Jeremy Robert Johnson's best and most bizarre short fiction, including a brand-new, never-before-published novella.
For more than a decade, Jeremy Robert Johnson has been bubbling under the surface of both literary and genre fiction. His short stories present a brilliantly dark and audaciously weird realm where cosmic nightmares collide with all-too-human characters and apocalypses of all shapes and sizes loom ominously. In "Persistence Hunting," a lonely distance runner is seduced into a brutal life of crime with an ever-narrowing path for escape. In "When Susurrus Stirs," an unlucky pacifist must stop a horrifying parasite from turning his body into a sentient hive. Running through all of Johnson's work is a hallucinatory vision and deeply-felt empathy, earning the author a reputation as one of today's most daring and thrilling writers.
Featuring the best of his independently-published short fiction, as well as an exclusive, never-before-published novella "The Sleep of Judges"―where a father's fight against the denizens of a drug den becomes a mind-bending suburban nightmare―Entropy in Bloom is a perfect compendium for avid fans and an ideal entry point for adventurous readers seeking the humor, heartbreak, and terror of JRJ's strange new worlds.
Featuring Thomas Ligotti, John Skipp, David J (of Bauhaus), Ben Loory, Nick Mamatas, Amelia Gray, Kevin Sampsell, Blake Butler, and many others, In Heaven, Everything is Fine: Fiction Inspired by David Lynch is a tribute to one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.
ALL THE WRONG IDEAS
From parasite-riddled pulp experiments to post-apocalyptic road trip freak-outs, from suddenly self-aware nuke narratives to tales of revenge told in reverse, ALL THE WRONG IDEAS collects the earliest and most absurd stories from bestselling weird fiction phenomenon Jeremy Robert Johnson in one wild, wondrous volume. Includes the novella “Extinction Journals,” the brand new short story “The Seat of Reason,” and 17 other unsettling entry points into JRJ’s dark, delirious, and definitively damaged world.
"Johnson writes with an energy that propels you through some very dark spaces indeed and into something profoundly unsettling but nonetheless human."
―Brian Evenson, author of A Collapse of Horses
"I've seen the future and it's bizarre, it's beautifully berserk, it's Jeremy Robert Johnson."
―Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Only Good Indians
"A powerful imagination, a great talent for storytelling, writing chops that allow him to tackle any genre, and a flowing, dynamic voice that, if Johnson were a singer, would extend to an impressive eight octaves."

An Illustrated novel by Alan M. Clark and Jeremy Robert Johnson.
A young woman sets out to break her addictions and the destructive cycle of generations of abuse, but the world around her has other plans. To save herself and the daughter she loves, she must battle addiction, the demons within, men who are barely human, and the weight of generations of darkness.
"The simple story of a father and son going fishing somehow morphs into a soul-shattering tale of anxiety, loss, and vengeance wrapped in a surreal narrative about the things that can keep a person between this world and the next. Johnson is a maestro of the weird and one of the best writers in crime and horror, but this one erases all of those genres and makes him simply one of the best."
"This is superb fiction with a raw, throbbing, aching heart at its core that is far too big to be contained within the book's pages but that is, by some bizarre magic, still there."
―Vol. 1 Brooklyn
"In the River is a brilliant offering; the pain and strange beauty of it will wash over you and sweep you away."
These are stories to be read beneath a dying sun.

Qu'avait vu le garçon ? Son père, tendant la main. La gorge sans fin de la bête. Quoi d'autre ? Peut-être était-ce allé si vite qu'il n'avait rien vu. Rien compris. De grâce.
Quelque part dans la jungle somptueuse et inquiétante d'un pays d'Amérique du Sud, un père emmène son fils pêcher, l'autorisant pour la première fois à s'aventurer au milieu d'un fleuve dont les eaux se révèlent aussi dangereuses que généreuses. Ce rite d'initiation va bientôt tourner au cauchemar lorsque le jeune garçon disparaît subitement. À la recherche de son enfant, l'homme débarque sur un rivage hostile, peuplé de tribus, de chamans et de sorcières.
Apprendre à se noyer est un conte initiatique et horrifique, saisissant par sa cruauté autant que par sa poésie et sa délicatesse. Jeremy Robert Johnson nous entraîne dans un voyage apocalyptique et intime qui, par-delà le macabre, offre une fable de toute beauté sur l'amour, la disparition, et la possibilité toujours présente, pour nous autres les vivants, de défier la mort pour lui arracher ce dont elle nous a privés.
" Johnson fait preuve d'une énergie qui nous propulse dans des espaces très ténébreux, inquiétants, mais profondément humains ". Brian Evenson
