The summoning spells finally worked, and my gothic novel THE ATROCITIES is out today!

You can order the book on Amazon, or wherever books are sold. You can also ask a demonic hedgehog to recite the entire tale into your ear while you sleep.

Thanks in advance to everyone who reads the book. You are the reason why I share my stories.

And here are a few blurbs, to whet your most macabre of appetites:

“If I had to narrow down The Atrocities to just a few words, I would choose: surreal, beautiful and grotesque…. It’s got the dread of Shirley Jackson mixed with the funhouse terror of Hieronymus Bosch.” — Outlaw Poet

“Any fans of haunted houses or strange families will thoroughly enjoy reading this short novel.” — Booklist

If Agatha Christie had fallen through a Lovecraftian Portal, and then penned a locked room mystery, with illustrations by William Blake, the result might resemble the vast estate, ‘The Atrocities,’ and its family, in this stunning Gothic panorama.” — Mallory Heart

“A haunting, grotesquely beautiful, atmospheric work of Gothic horror, The Atrocities didn’t play out quite as I expected, but it’s those final twists that elevated it from memorable to unforgettable.” — Bob Milne, Beauty in Ruins

 

New horror book from Jeremy C. Shipp

Shipp — acclaimed author of VACATION, CURSED and ATTIC CLOWNS.

“Jeremy C. Shipp’s boldness, daring, originality, and sheer smarts make him one of the most vital younger writers who have colonized horror literature in the past decade. Shipp’s modernist clarity, plus his willingness to risk damn near everything, put him up at the head of the pack with the very best.”
—Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story

“Shipp’s clear, insistent voice pulls you down into the rabbit hole and doesn’t let go.”
—Jack Ketchum, author of The Girl Next Door

“Jeremy C. Shipp is one of the most dynamic forces in horror.”
—Scott Nicholson, author of McFALL

“I’m convinced Jeremy Shipp is a little bit crazy, in the best possible way.”
—Jeff VanderMeer, author of City of Saints & Madmen and Shriek: An Afterword

“Jeremy Shipp is a very good drug.”
–John Skipp, author of The Emerald Burrito of Oz

“Shipp’s flashbang stories will turn your mind inside-out.”
—Ronald Damien Malfi, author of Passenger

Jeremy Shipp is an incredibly talented author. His impressive stories are as intelligent, entertaining, and moving as they are strange. Read him now.”
—Carlton Mellick III, author of The Egg Man

“Jeremy C. Shipp writes about horrible things in marvelous ways. A weird, funny, brutal, transcendent read. Highly recommended.”
—Michael Louis Calvillo, Bram Stoker Finalist author of I Will Rise

Bram Stoker Award nominee Jeremy C. Shipp spins 13 tales of horror and dark humor in this highly conceptual collection. Angels and demons, husbands and wives, tormented ghosts and an army of men made of soap–all of them trapped in attics of the mind, attics of heaven or hell, the attics we make for ourselves or with which we ensnare others.

Meet a paranoid astronaut whose jealousy drives him to extremes beyond murder…a miniature circus spawned from the mind of a woman with too much control…the underling demon Globcow who desires redemption even more than the taste of human feet…

Men, women, children, and things beyond imagination all interconnect in ATTIC CLOWNS, where laughter is only the prelude to the bizarre and terrible.

The stories include:
Spider Clowns from Planet X
Microcircus
Princess
Dust Bunnies
Don’t Laugh
Blister
A Quivering Gray Fog
The Ascension of Globcow the Foot Eater
Little Mouse
Soapmen
The Glass Box
