“With The Loop, Johnson pumps up the crazy, with a pulse-pounding science-gone-mad horror novel only he could envision.”
Turner Falls is nestled in the western Oregon hills. It’s the kind of place you want to escape to for a nice vacation. When an unexplainable outbreak occurs, Turner Falls becomes the center of chaos. Several of the teenaged children of the executives who work for the local biotech firm become ill, displaying violently aggressive, and murderous symptoms.
Turner Falls is on edge. Now a lonely young woman gets together with her fellow outcasts to do whatever it takes to fight the madness in the night.
Why we’re excited about this book:
When it comes to high-octane weird and horrifying fiction, Jeremy Robert Johnson easily comes to mind. Author of Skullcrack City, Entropy in Bloom, In the River, We Live Inside You, Extinction Journals, and Angel Dust Apocalypse, Johnson’s short fiction has graced the pages of such anthologies as In Heaven, Everything is Fine, Nova Parade, and The Best Bizarro Fiction of the Decade. With The Loop, Johnson pumps up the crazy, with a pulse-pounding science-gone-mad horror novel only he could envision. Nathan Ballingrud (North American Lake Monsters, Wounds) says: “The Loop is the Cronenberg film we never got. It’s a volcano of a book: violent, compassionate, relentless, and opulently strange.”, and Publishers Weekly calls The Loop: “Unputdownable … Fans of The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, and Stranger Things will be especially thrilled.”
Forthcoming from Gallery/Saga Press, The Loop by Jeremy Robert Johnson releases 29 September 2020 and is available for pre-order now.
