Reviews

"Ruff's sequel to 2016's Lovecraft Country delivers another virtuoso blend of horror, action, and humor. . . . Fans will find this a worthy sequel." -- Publishers Weekly

"Immensely entertaining. The pacing is on point, the action set pieces are thrilling, and the stakes are high." -- Locus

"A spectacular follow-up to Lovecraft Country . . . Few writers can manage a cast of characters this large with Ruff's deft hand--they are likeable, individual, and we root for all of them . . . It makes for an extremely fast-paced, high-stakes read as we ping-pong around the Jim Crow south and all the way to the end of the universe." -- Cory Doctorow

"Another 'only Matt Ruff could do this' production. Lovecraft Country takes the unlikeliest of premises and spins it into a funny, fast, exciting and affecting read." -- Neal Stephenson on LOVECRAFT COUNTRY

"Lovecraft Country rubs the pervasive, eldritch dread of Lovecraft's universe against the very real, historical dread of Jim Crow America and sparks fly. . . . Ruff renders a very high-concept, imaginary world with such vividness that you can't help but feel it's disturbingly real." -- Christopher Moore on LOVECRAFT COUNTRY

"Nonstop adventure that includes time-shifting, shape-shifting, and Lovecraft-like horrors. . . . Ruff, a cult favorite for his mind-bending fiction, vividly portrays racism as a horror worse than anything conceived by Lovecraft in this provocative, chimerical novel." -- Booklist (starred review) on LOVECRAFT COUNTRY
