Jeremy Shipp is the master of the mind-bending tale. These stories bewitch and transport the reader. Though you may not know where Shipp will travel next, each story is an unforgettable thrill-ride and you'll be glad you took the trip. Shipp's novel Vacation established him as one of the foremost authors in the "bizarro fiction" movement. Now he turns his attention to short fiction and literary horror. The themes of alienation and cultural homogenization on a global scale are explored in closer detail. Shipp notes, "This intimacy makes Sheep and Wolves much darker than its predecessor. Because now, the darkness is invading your homes, your dreams, your lives." The author's trademark quirky characters populate an otherwise bleak landscape, this time around facing horrors at home rather than evils abroad.

From the Inside Flap:

"A stark fever-dream of a book. Shipp's flashbang stories will turn your mind inside-out." --Ronald Damien Malfi, author of Passenger

"Sheep and Wolves is a poster-child for the Bizarro genre: dream-like stories drenched in psychedelic imagery, and enough thematic layers and multiple meanings to keep scholars pontificating for years to come." --Matthew Warner, author of Horror Isn't a 4-Letter Word

"Each word, each sentence, contributes to the final picture with economic precision and sharp bursts of humor. This is a memorable collection, wandering deftly through the gnomic shadowlands of dark fantasy, horror and bizarro." --Andersen Prunty, author of Jack and Mr. Grin

"Shipp adroitly wields a chiaroscuro tone, creating in broad, rich strokes scenes of humor, strangeness and cruelty. " --Garret Cook, author of Murderland Part 1: H8

"If you have read and enjoyed Vacation, it will do your electrodes well to pick up Sheep and Wolves. If, on the other hand, you have procrastinated in picking up last summer's smash hit (again, Vacation), find a copy today! I trust you'll know how to proceed from there." --Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens

From the Back Cover:

"Sheep and Wolves is one impressive collection by a writer who has--in a relatively short period of time--made his own mark in a genre where originality is everything."--The Horror Fiction Review

"Any reader of the bizarro culture will find this collection a necessity, any reader of fiction will find Sheep and Wolves rewarding."--Midwest Book Review

"Jeremy Shipp is an incredibly talented bizarro fiction 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

"If you want to know what's happening on the edge of speculative fiction, Sheep and Wolves will serve as an excellent introduction--its stories are challenging, unsettling, and deeply meaningful." --The Harrow

"Jeremy C. Shipp writes about horrible things in marvelous ways...Each of the stories contained within offer up odd instances of insight that elevate the work and paint a compelling view of our sometimes beautiful, sometimes insidious humanity. A weird, funny, brutal, transcendent read. Highly recommended."--Michael Louis Calvillo, Bram Stoker Finalist author of I Will Rise
