Description

A terrifying collection of horror and crime noir from the author of Southern Gods and A Lush and Seething Hell.

Featuring 10 tales, two never before in print, Murder Ballads and Other Horrific Tales is an exciting glimpse into the dark territories of the human heart.

These are coming-of-age stories. Stories of love and loss, grief, and revenge. Survival and redemption. From old gods to malevolent artificial intelligences, vampires to zombies to ghosts, Jacobs exposes our fears and worst imaginings.

Contains the sequel to Southern Gods.

Couldn't vibe with the writing at all

After listening to 'Exquisite Corpse' by Poppy Z Brite twice in a row (something I've *never* done before) I figured this would be an excellent palate cleanser. Still horror, but more digestible short stories.

First story was about Vikings and some kinda legend? I don't know. I couldn't follow along at all. I loved the narrator's voice, though.

Maybe the first story just isn't for me, I thought, and skipped to the next one. It was slightly more interesting, granted, but still nearly impossible to follow along with. I couldn't get a visual picture in my head to go along with the story.

Returned. Still loved the narrator's voice and accent, but the writing and I just didn't vibe.

Subtle Tales Of Extraordinary Circumstances

Incredibly satisfying both in content & execution . James Horner Jacobs claims not to be a short story natural in the intro to this collection - don’t be fooled Jacobs finds new directions in well travelled genre conventions like the Coming Of Age, Ghost, and Vampire story. James Meunier’s narration is curiously perfect- his native British expository narrative accent works because his American, southern character accents work incredibly incredibly well. Highly recommended.
