Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We are within you, and we are growing. Watching. Waiting for your empires to fall. It won't be long now. We are the fear of death that drives you and the terrible hunger that reshapes you in its name. We are the vengeance born from senseless slaughter and the pulsing reptile desire that negates your consciousness. We are the lie on your lips, the collapsing star in your heart, and the still-warm gun in your shaking hands. The illusion of control is all we'll allow you, and no matter what you do... WE LIVE INSIDE YOU

Review:

"We Live Inside You is fucking terrific. Jeremy Robert Johnson is dancing to a way different drummer. He loves language, he loves the edge, and he loves us people. These stories have range and style and wit. This is entertainment... and literature." Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season, The Girl Next Door, and The Woman (w/Lucky McKee)

Rodney Wilder, May 6, 2014 (view all comments by Rodney Wilder)
There are plenty of reasons Jeremy Robert Johnson is a name on so many tongues. 'We Live Inside You' is just one of the more recent ones.

This anthological follow-up to 'Angel Dust Apocalypse' touts a discernible growth in style and execution for the author. The stories still bubble with enough oddities to warrant keeping a bottle of Purell nearby, but the strength of 'We Live Inside You' is its range. Johnson has honed his bizarro-scope with this collection, offering bouts with parasitic organisms that taste like cinnamon and split vitals like overcooked hot dogs, things terrifying in their own right...and then infinitely more terrifying when you find Wikipedia pages about them.

There are also several stories that operate on significantly subtler levels, though, and these stand to show Johnson's range. Not every story involves microscopic grotesqueries. Some are humorous, others emotionally haunting and grounded in reality. The collection of stories is just a well-rounded book that shows Jeremy Robert Johnson has lost nothing in either skill or bravery throughout his career.
