Descrizione

The award-winning and critically-acclaimed master of horror returns with a pair of chilling tales—both never-before-published in print or audio—that examine the violence and depravity of the human condition.

Bringing together his acclaimed novella The Sea Dreams It Is the Sky and an all-new short novel My Heart Struck Sorrow, John Hornor Jacobs turns his fertile imagination to the evil that breeds within the human soul.

A brilliant mix of the psychological and supernatural, blending the acute insight of Roberto Bolaño and the eerie imagination of H. P. Lovecraft, The Sea Dreams It Is the Sky examines life in a South American dictatorship. Centered on the journal of a poet-in-exile and his failed attempts at translating a maddening text, it is told by a young woman trying to come to grips with a country that nearly devoured itself.

In My Heart Struck Sorrow, a librarian discovers a recording from the Deep South—which may be the musical stylings of the Devil himself.

Breathtaking and haunting, A Lush and Seething Hell is a terrifying and exhilarating journey into the darkness, an odyssey into the deepest reaches of ourselves that compels us to confront secrets best left hidden.

    Good stories! Way way way too drawn out! I listen to 30 books a month as a painter and this book was interesting enough to keep me coming back but I had to break and listen to other books as I would get so bored waiting for something to finally happen that I would forget what was going on!

    John Horner Jacobs is a hell of a find. Highly recommended.
  • (3/5)
    I think there was some emphasis on things I don't believe added all that much to the stories, such as lenghty pieces of thought that only repeated themselves. But the plot of both stories was nice.
