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 previously independently-published short fiction, as well as an exclusive, never-before-published novella 'The Sleep of Judges?' where the aftermath of a home burglary 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.
