Praise for this book

"Reading Johnson, you feel you are in the grip of an immensely powerful, possibly malevolent, but fiercely intelligent mind." - Nick Cutter

"Johnson writes with an energy that propels you through some very dark spaces indeed and into something profoundly unsettling but nonetheless human." - Brian Evenson

"I've seen the future and it's bizarre, it's beautifully berserk, it's Jeremy Robert Johnson." - Stephen Graham Jones

"Jeremy Robert Johnson is dancing to a way different drummer. He loves language, he loves the edge, and he loves us people. This is entertainment... and literature." - Jack Ketchum

"The guy's a genius. Reminds me of William Gibson--the dark interest in altered states of consciousness, the unrelentingly furious forward movement, and the same kind of unlimited imagination." - Ben Loory

"A dazzling writer." - Chuck Palahniuk
