Cover Reveal: Entropy in Bloom, by Jeremy Robert Johnson

Jeremy Robert Johnson’s genre-defying Entropy in Bloom releases in April 2017. This ‘Best of’ collection of Johnson’s brilliantly bizarre and macabre short fiction also includes a new, never-before-published novella. Today, though, we’re showing off the awesome cover, with artwork by Martin Wittfooth and design by Rain Saukas!

Entropy in Bloom

For more than a decade, Jeremy Robert Johnson has been bubbling under the surface of both literary and genre fiction. His short stories present a brilliantly dark and audaciously weird realm where cosmic nightmares collide with all-too-human characters and apocalypses of all shapes and sizes loom ominously. In “Persistence Hunting,” a lonely distance runner is seduced into a brutal life of crime with an ever-narrowing path for escape. In “When Susurrus Stirs,” an unlucky pacifist must stop a horrifying parasite from turning his body into a sentient hive. Running through all of Johnson’s work is a hallucinatory vision and deeply-felt empathy, earning the author a reputation as one of today’s most daring and thrilling writers.

Featuring the best of his previously independently-published short fiction, as well as an exclusive, never-before-published novella “The Sleep of Judges”—where a father’s fight against the denizens of a drug den becomes a mind-bending suburban nightmare—Entropy in Bloom is a perfect compendium for avid fans and an ideal entry point for adventurous readers seeking the humor, heartbreak, and terror of JRJ’s strange new worlds.

Entropy in Bloom is out April 18, 2017!
