“It’s time to declare John Hornor Jacobs as a major author: every sentence he writes feels drawn from a pit of fire and hammered into a sword.” — Daniel Kraus, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Shape of Water

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

Featuring ten 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 titular “Murder Ballads,” the sequel to Southern Gods.

“Jacobs demonstrates masterful control of his eclectic themes and frequently propels them into unexpected and pleasingly original territory... Offers plenty to keep genre fans hooked.” — Publishers Weekly
