Angel Dust Apocalypseby Jeremy Robert Johnson, Robert Johnson Jeremy Robert Johnson
From the radioactive streets of a war-scarred future, where the nuclear bombs have become self-aware, to the fallow fields of Nebraska where the kids are mainlining
Meth-heads, man-made monsters, and murderous Neo-Nazis. Blissed out club kids dying at the speed of sound. The un-dead and the very soon-to-be-dead. They're all here, trying to claw their way free.
From the radioactive streets of a war-scarred future, where the nuclear bombs have become self-aware, to the fallow fields of Nebraska where the kids are mainlining lightning bugs, this is a world both alien and intensely human. This is a place where self-discovery involves scalpels and horse tranquilizers; where the doctors are more doped-up than the patients; where obsessive-compulsive acid-freaks have unlocked the gateway to God and can't close the door.
This is not a safe place. You can turn back now, or you can head straight into the heart of.

"Angel Dust Apocalypse" is quite possibly one of the best unusual / weird / creepy / hypnotic books of short stories out there! At the beginning of the book, JRJ says a nice thank you to several authors including, Chuck Palahniuk, Stephen King, Clive Barker and Irvine Welsh for being his inspiration! His short stories show that he is a fan of all those outstanding writers! There is even a blurb on the back of the book, with Chuck Palahniuk calling "Angel Dust Apocalypse", seriously amazing short stories! "Angel Dust Apocalypse" is eighteen short stories in all! Out of the eighteen stories, there were maybe four that I didn't rave about to my friends the next day! The stories aren't just catchy and unique, the stories are written incredibly well! The stories topics range from drug use, body modifications, hallucinations, horror, super powers, the end of the world to everyday life! My personal favorites were: Dissociative Skills Saturn's Game Snowfall Working at Home Luminary Last Thoughts Drifting Down The stories Luminary & Working at Home were so good, if they were in a Stephen King book of short stories, you would never know the difference! I think Jeremy Robert Johnson is just getting started, do yourself a favor and read this book soon, someday this guy is going to be hugely famous! People always say in their reviews that they liked the book so much, they are going to give a copy to a friend, well for once, I might just do that! Highly, highly recommended!
