Overview


Nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel
Recent World War II veteran Bull Ingram is working as muscle when a Memphis DJ hires him to find Ramblin' John Hastur. The mysterious blues man's dark, driving music - broadcast at ever-shifting frequencies by a phantom radio station - is said to make living men insane and dead men rise. Disturbed and enraged by the bootleg recording the DJ plays for him, Ingram follows Hastur's trail into the strange, uncivilized backwoods of Arkansas, where he hears rumors the musician has sold his soul to the Devil. But as Ingram closes in on Hastur and those who have crossed his path, he'll learn there are forces much more malevolent than the Devil and reckonings more painful than Hell... In a masterful debut of Lovecraftian horror and Southern gothic menace, John Hornor Jacobs reveals the fragility of free will, the dangerous power of sacrifice, and the insidious strength of blood.

    interesting story

    i enjoyed this book, the visuals he paints are powerful. It was too short though, Mr. Jacobs lays everything out there for you, rather then building up to bigger reveals. Other then this little thing, the book was fantastic. If your a cthulhu fan or just into supernatural thrillers this book will satisfy the horror fan in us all. Beware the old ones.

    I read this book when first published and loved it. The setting

    I read this book when first published and loved it. The setting is in rural East Arkansas circa 1950. I remember those times and places and enjoyed traveling back in time if only on my mind. John develops strong characters and believable action. Somewhere I read a reviewer who stated that reading a good book is like "A Flight of the Mind". I feel like Mr. Jacobs has taken me there, taken me inside the minds of the characters... inside the roadhouse blues club and the decaying mansion on the bayou.

    Highly recommended

    I'm not a zombie kinda girl, but I liked this book. I enoyed the authors style of writing and ability to paint a picture not just tell a tale. I would definetly read a sequel if there's going to be one.
