WASHINGTON POST REVIEW, Powell's Reading, And More!
AND, I've been invited to read at Powell's Hawthorne on Thursday, May 14th at 7:30pm. This will be my first time having a solo appearance at Powell's, and I still need to talk to their Event Coordinator about their policies regarding nudity, fake blood, and Cormac McCarthy jokes, but it should be a great time!
Fourth, my first post-SKULLCRACK print interview is live over at Entropy Mag. I finally answer the question, "Briefs or a carefully smashed-and-glued taco?" It's very provocative stuff!
Sixth, an exclamation!
Seventh, here's the SKULLCRACK Hype Train Round-Up Chugging On Through!
"Fucking incredibly well written and really entertaining the whole time. Wholly original--it's a gem. Without question a FIVE STAR book."--BOOKED
"This book is a little bit science fiction, a little bit horror, a little bit everything really, with a dark, literary angle throughout. It's a must for fans of body horror, intricate conspiracies, David Wong/Don Coscarelli's John Dies at the End, or just plain great story-telling."--HORROR NEWS
"Skullcrack City is, by my estimation, a perfect book. Jeremy Robert Johnson is a novelist whose head is so full of ideas and the purest essence of Story that the book practically explodes when you open it. Moving at a breakneck speed, Skullcrack City never lets up."--THE PULP CHRONICLER
"[T]his book is singularly original. Certainly, it takes cues from Philip K. Dick and William Burroughs. It feels like it could be put on a shelf next to Warren Ellis' Supergod, Grant Morrison's The Invisibles and The Filth, and David Wong's John Dies at the End and be perfectly at home there. Despite its bleak setting and tormented characters, this book is very, very funny. And ultimately, it is a book about hope, and love, and redemption, and the human will to adapt and survive despite insurmountable odds."--INTERNAL SHIRT
"This book is like nothing else you have ever read... If forced me I would say it felt like a way weirder take on Carpenter's They Live if William Burroughs and Clive Barker worked on the script and Cronenberg directed."--POSTCARDS FROM A DYING WORLD
