JRJ is the MAN !,
This review is from: We Live Inside You (Kindle Edition)
Jeremy Robert Johnson is a fantastic storyteller, who deserves a wider audience. He is very innovative, and unafraid to draw the reader into the uncharted waters of his tales.
We Live Inside You is a masterpiece. Each of the stories collected cast a divinely dark spell on the reader. It is, in fact, so good that I cannot name any favorites, as all of the stories are amazing in their own rights. JRJ masters different literary genres (horror, crime, bizarro...) and narrative styles and crafts highly imaginative, chilling and fascinating stories. The only non-fiction piece of We Live Inside You is about the very unusual making of a superb album (The Bedlam in Goliath) by The Mars Volta, which is of my all-time favorite bands - utterly fascinating !
