Lucius Shepard is one of those writers who can t be easily categorized His fiction flirts with genre skittering over barren haunted territories marked by JG Ballard and Joseph Conrad and at times stylistically his pen wields florid like Clark Ashton Smith or precise in the fashion of Graham Greene He truly is a master of the short story and short novel This Arkham House collection while not as good as its predecessor The Jaguar Hunter has all the trademarks of Shepard ex pats with some type of darkness in their hearts moving through foreign territories in a mystical haze of slipstream ghosts plaguing a war torn landscape futuristic 3rd world states where one brave man tries to break away from it all and the facade of a disillusioned reality being split at the seams by misunderstood GodsThe highlights of this collection are The Ends of Earth Nomans Land Bound for Glory and Fire Zone Emerald Besides a somewhat annoying narration from the lead in A Wooden Tiger there s not a lemon in the bunch In The Ends of the Earth a failed writer becomes attached to a ravenous talon shredding God who haunts the Guatemalan jungles Nomans Land tells of an Irish boatman stranded on a Nantucket island where the government once tested nuclear devices where now the only thing alive are white spiders from beyond the cosmos a serious cosmic force is present here something taken from Olaf Stapledon s Starmaker and given a serious mind fuck Fire Zone Emerald is a bold action piece where a futuristic soldier armed to the teeth takes on a band of drug addicted rebels And Bound for Glory has a train running through the bad patch a stretch of land peopled by psychopathic mutants And also included is the dragon fantasy The Scalehunter s Beautiful Daughter an elouent piece that takes place in the cavernous body of a comatosed dragon Shepard even plays around with the shock twist ending fashioned by 1950s horror comics like Tales from the Crpyt in his short Black Clay Boy only this time there s no revenge but a self sacrifice that burns with a sudden raw perversity There s nobody who works like Shepard and it s a shame he s not read as widely as he should be A fine collection

Yes I m not going to rate this one This isn t as unualified of a recommendation as The Jaguar Hunter Several of the stories at least of the ones that I ve read are beautiful wonderfully done appetizingly dark and I guess just all around appealing I m talking about The Ends of the Earth Delta Sly Honey Bound for Glory and Surrender and if what I ve heard is true The Scalehunter s Beautiful Daughter fits into that category as well However a couple of the stories The Exercise of Faith The Black Clay Boy made me sick to my stomach The graphic content rape sex etc in those two stories alone turned me off to the book for a long time Maybe pick this one up from the library if you can find it which I doubt

When the going gets tough the tough gettheir clothes off and get it on Seriously every story where there is a female around is going to have rape or ecstatic intercourse or masturbation and sometimes all three often in the most ridiculous situations and places Its just not believable I don t know if Shepard thinks he s being edgy or what About half the stories here are average 14 good and 14 really weak There is one long absolute stinker The Scalehunter s Beautiful Daughter This 500 page collection could have been cut in half and been a really good collection of stories There is just way too much filler here This is the only weak Arkham House collection I have read from the 90 s and Shepard is one of the better known writers
