Jeremy C. 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.

Praise for Jeremy's writing:

"Jeremy Shipp is a very good drug."
--John Skipp

"Shipp's clear, insistent voice pulls you down into the rabbit hole and doesn't let go."
--Jack Ketchum

"[Sheep and Wolves is:] the scariest freaking book I've read in a decade, make no mistake....When people say 'New Horror,' this is the kind of book they're talking about, stuff for you existing horror fans who have grown tired of the usual overwritten delicacies of late-period Stephen King and the like. It comes with a big thumbs-up, and will undoubtedly become known eventually as a dark classic from this prolific underground author."
—Chicago Center for Literature & Photography

"This book is a nice quick read, some of the stories being less than 3 pages in length. Little bites, if you will, of horrific visions and gnashing teeth, this book has something for everyone who is a fan of raw horror."
—ZombieMall.com

"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

"I once called Shipp one of the more 'bizarre of the bizarro writers,' and with SHEEP AND WOLVES, he really lives up to that title."
—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

"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 and Eyes Everywhere

"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

"Stripped down to the bare bones of narrative consciousness, these stories manipulate the reader like a drunken Trix Rabbit buggering the corpse of Kurt Vonnegut."
—Cameron Pierce, author of Shark Hunting in Paradise

"Shipp writes very weird (bizarre even for bizarro) comedic horror stories about the things in life that really scare us… not ghosts and zombies (although I think there are a few ghosts and zombies in there)but car accidents, mental illness, and real-life monsters who are caught up in endless cycles of abuse. How he also manages to make these stories humorous…I don't know.As long as you don't mind a bit of subtext and emotional honesty Sheep and Wolves is highly recommended."
—Ash Lomen, bizarro maniac

"Shipp writes well-constructed puzzles where 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

"Jeremy C. Shipp writes about horrible things in marvelous ways. SHEEP AND WOLVES is a compulsively readable collection (I read the sucker in three sittings) filled with resplendent moments of satire, gruesome contrivances, and some of the sharpest, funniest dialogue around. These stories had me cringing and laughing out loud simultaneously. Of course trying to box SHEEP AND WOLVES in as merely a gore and giggles affair would be doing the collection a serious disservice. 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

His shorter tales have appeared or are forthcoming in over 50 publications, the likes of Cemetery Dance, ChiZine, Apex Magazine, Pseudopod, and Rosebud. While preparing for the forthcoming collapse of civilization, Jeremy enjoys living in Southern California in a moderately haunted Victorian farmhouse with a legion of yard gnomes.

"Shipp's clear, insistent voice pulls you down into the rabbit hole and doesn't let go."
--Jack Ketchum

"[Vacation] is an intriguing, challenging, literate, provocative novel I'm not sure I understand and suspect I'm not meant to… I recommend it to those who find reality boring; it may make them see it in new ways."
—Piers Anthony

"Jeremy C. Shipp's Vacation is a surreal, bizarre, and utterly captivating tale. This ambitious story covers a lot of territory: it's disturbing, funny, thoughtful, and even touching. A wildly unpredictable first novel from one WEIRD author."
—Jeff Strand, author of The Sinister Mister Corpse

"It's rare to find a work that claims to be a mind-bender actually live up to its claims, but Jeremy Shipp's Vacation does just that. Imagine the finale of 2001: A Space Odyssey set in a deceptively everyday world that quickly— and effectively—jumps into William S. Burroughs territory by way of Donald Barthelme...and even that comparison won't prepare you for the head-trip that awaits you in these pages. The mundane turned mystical turned metaphysical turned indescribable. This is a genuinely one-of-a-kind trip, and one you won't want to miss."
—Gary A. Braunbeck, Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild Award-winner, author of Prodigal Blues, Destinations Unknown, and Mr. Hands

"None of the usual accolades work for Jeremy Shipp's Vacation. The reader is not amazed, astounded, or aggrieved - the reader is achingly curious, alarmingly moved, and at the end, astonished by the vision and darkness and redemption. No one writes like Shipp, and that's a great thing."
—Susan Straight, author of A Million Nightingales

"I'm convinced Jeremy Shipp is a little bit crazy, in the best possible way. Vacation is edgy, surreal, and original. This is one of those books that alters your brain in a way similar to Philip K. Dick. A very good first novel."
—Jeff VanderMeer, author of City of Saints & Madmen and Shriek: An Afterword

"I don't think there has been a more aptly titled book in recent memory than Jeremy Shipp's Vacation. This sprawling psychological pseudo-fantastical surrealistic mind-trip of an adventure story demands that you step out--far, far, far out--of your comfort zone, and embrace the possibilities of a universe that may be a dream, a nightmare, or just wishful thinking. Vacation is a headfirst dive into the rabbit hole, assuming those rabbits lined their burrow with mirrors, because as bizarre as this novel ultimately appears to be on the surface, there's very little here that we won't find in ourselves, assuming we're brave enough, and know how and where, to look. For now, we will have to content ourselves with author Shipp's efforts to do tha
