Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

There's blood in the Southern Earth. Meet twin brothers bound to the sacred rite of grave stomping and a young girl indebted to a darkness in the woods. Visit a small town where pro-wrestling takes the place of human sacrifice and an alternate reality where meteorite-born mutations rend the fabric of society. It's a world where giant catfish roam the man-made depths of Kentucky Lake, racial horror haunts the shadows of small-town life and all we can do is wonder at our own twisted roots in the soil.

L'autore

Robert J. Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction, but such are the trials of puberty. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for the smallest of small-town newspapers before finally becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He makes his home in Atlanta with his loving wife Bonnie and mummy-obsessed son Sebastian.

5.0 su 5 stelle Really enjoyed this book 21 marzo 2015
Di Bill Phillips - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Really enjoyed this book. What I love about Robert's stories is that there's always a heart of spiritual investigation to them. More often than not, that is a dark heart: desperate yearning usually leads to unspeakable horrors here, or just plain human cruelty. Some people do escape, though, or achieve a final victory of some kind.

Compared to his previous release, Eight Black Offerings, this one is more moody, and leans less on physical and sexual horror. While it does lean Lovecraftian, it never does so without a firm grounding in more traditional Southern gothic moods. Weirdly, I found the body-horror stories about eel armed relatives and mutant catfish ("Thy Father's Hands", "The Catfish Milkers") more vivid than some of the other less fantastic stories, like the titular story or "Vreck Stone's Last Match".

If Eight Black Offerings was not explicit enough for you, stay clear: this book is less explicit than that. If it was a bit too much, on the other hand, maybe this one is more your speed. Unless eel armed people and mutant catfish drug sex magic are too much for you no matter what the circumstances.

5.0 su 5 stelle Get punched in the face with dark, spooky southern lore 18 aprile 2015
Di Chuck Noblet - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Robert Lamb is one of my favorite writers/podcasters so I figured I'd venture into his fiction. I really enjoyed this collection of stories. There are a lot of typos, which isn't his fault, I guess, but the stories are hot and sweaty with good ol' southern creepiness. After finishing the book, I wasn't sure whether I was more creeped out by blood-thirsty humans or the unseen things that go bump in the night. I'd definitely recommend checking out this book.
5.0 su 5 stelle The Terrible Beauty of the South, and of Us 26 luglio 2015
Di D. Striepe - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
In The Grave Stompers: Six Tales From the Southern Earth, Robert Lamb paints the Southern U.S. as a place both beautiful and ugly, known and unknown, kind and heartbreakingly cruel. The lands in Lamb's stories speak of truths beneath truths; rituals passed among unlikely men, secret worlds laid in plain sight, an ancient vengeance made modern. Each story offers a look at who we are, and some offer a glimpse at who we may become. It's the kind of ugliness and beauty you can only paint about something that you love, and Lamb's love of the South rings loudly in each story. If you're already a fan of Lamb's style of “what-if”s, you'll find a lot to enjoy here. If you're not already a fan, I can't think of a better place to become one. My personal favorites are “The Grave Stompers”, “The Meat Wagon”, “Vreck Stone's Last Match”, and “The Catfish Milkers” but really, they're all great.
