Sheep And Wolvesby Jeremy C. Shipp
Shipp's novel Vacation established him as one of the foremost authors in the "bizarro fiction" movement. Now he turns his attention
Jeremy Shipp is the master of the mind-bending tale. These stories bewitch and transport the reader. Though you may not know where Shipp will travel next, each story is an unforgettable thrill-ride and you'll be glad you took the trip.
Shipp's novel Vacation established him as one of the foremost authors in the "bizarro fiction" movement. Now he turns his attention to short fiction and literary horror. The themes of alienation and cultural homogenization on a global scale are explored in closer detail. Shipp notes, "This intimacy makes Sheep and Wolves much darker than its predecessor. Because now, the darkness is invading your homes, your dreams, your lives." The author's trademark quirky characters populate an otherwise bleak landscape, this time around facing horrors at home rather than evils abroad.

Shipp has been thinking a little too hard, too long, and we are the beneficiaries. Shipp will tickle readers with delight, and in the next moment, scare the living daylights out of them.
From the opening of "Watching", the first tale, Shipp promises an interesting and bizarre journey though the human condition as readers voyeuristically tag along.
Shipp proves with this collection that he can be counted on for strange and lovely tales, consistently well written and interesting. Certainly one of the most unique voices in speculative fiction Shipp is poised to be a staple of the genres for many years to come.
