Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"What makes JRJ's work stand out from his contemporaries' is the strange sense of empathy--in that regard he is not unlike David Foster Wallace's wicked and perhaps deranged younger brother. Sometimes the horror is so understated that it's deadly. JRJ has the ability to balance sheer humanity with sheer grotesquerie."--21C MAGAZINE
"I'm a longtime fan of Johnson. A master of derangement, he's been bringing it for years."--LAIRD BARRON, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All 
"A haunting collection from a wildly talented author, WE LIVE INSIDE YOU is composed of nineteen perfectly-wrought nightmares, every one of which will stay with you long after you've finished reading."--PETER CRAIG, author of Hot Plastic and Blood Father, co-screenwriter of The Town

"The people populating these stories are real and vital and you WILL care, deeply, about what becomes of them... and in JRJ's harsh universe, baaaaad things happen. Often. Prepare thyself."--CRAIG DAVIDSON, author of Rust and Bone, The Fighter, and Sarah Court

"Favorite collection for 2011: WE LIVE INSIDE YOU."--STEPHEN GRAHAM JONES, author of The Ones That Got Away and It Came From Del Rio

"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, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

"Tongue-replacing isopods, brain-raping copepods and body-warping worms are far from the most insidious parasites that infest Jeremy Robert Johnson's hapless literary victims. Though the squirmy bits elegantly pioneer new frontiers of sickness, WE LIVE INSIDE YOU is at its most twisted and mordantly revelatory when it drops the body-horror metaphors and digs into the real horror of all the parasitic drives that ride us--tapeworms of greed, lust like plagues of crab lice, and the lethal heartworms of true love. So tightly written and so fluidly brutal you'll want to consume this psychosexual demolition derby in one sitting, but you'll spend the rest of the night checking yourself under a microscope."--CODY GOODFELLOW, author of Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars and Radiant Dawn/Ravenous Dusk

"Waaaay out at the deep end of the collective unconscious--where even the bravest of brain cells fear to tread--Jeremy Robert Johnson performs stand-up comedy for the gods.  And their laughter is a marvelous, terrible thing.  He's the kind of post-Lovecraftian genius berserker who makes the Great Old Ones new again.  As with Clive Barker, there is no glorious mutational eruption that Johnson can't nail directly through your gawping mind's eye."--JOHN SKIPP, NY Times Bestselling author of Spore (w/Cody Goodfellow) and The Bridge (w/Craig Spector)

"A dazzling writer."--CHUCK PALAHNIUK, NY Times Bestselling author of Fight Club

"Four stars."--BOOKED

"WE LIVE INSIDE YOU continues to showcase the author's staggering ability to craft stories as poignant as they are strange. The gamut of emotion conjured between the first and last page provides a workout for practically every muscle in a reader's mind. In its most twisted moments, Johnson's writing is too gleeful to pigeon-hole as strictly horror, and when he steps outside the gross-out game he transcends most other straight literary writers."--VERBICIDE

"WE LIVE INSIDE YOU is a genre-bending mix of stories akin to a literary blitzkrieg and 'Persistence Hunting' is one of the best noir stories you'll ever read. Johnson can write horror, science fiction, crime, and Bizarro. Sometimes he does all of the above within the same story. He's at once brutal and elegant, innovative and an immediate classic, ridiculously talented and an obvious perfectionist."--HORROR TALK
"Johnson weaves vivid and fascinatingly grotesque tales."--BOOKGASM

"I don't know if Mr. Johnson sold his soul to the devil to give him this gift for nightmare imagery, but by god, this guy can write. Johnson excels at pathology and perversity. A confirmed weirdo and authentic writer of uncommon emotional depth who deserves to be watched."--CEMETERY DANCE
"Johnson is probably a few books away from doing for horror what Jonathan Lethem did for science fiction. Plain and simple? Forget horror; this is good fiction."--GIRL ON DEMAND
"The stories contained in this book would make even David Lynch, David Cronenberg, and William Burroughs' post-orgy crack baby jealous. They are everything horror should be: uncomfortable, gritty, and violent. Each story is unpredictable and haunting. I'm almost convinced that Jeremy Robert Johnson wrote these stories in the fit of a long PCP bender, stopping only to drink the blood of sacrificed virgins."--BEST HORROR NOVELS
