Recent World War II veteran Bull Ingram is working as muscle when a Memphis DJ hires him to find Ramblin' John Hastur. The mysterious blues man's dark, driving music - broadcast at ever-shifting frequencies by a phantom radio statio - is said to make living men insane and dead men rise. Disturbed and enraged by the bootleg recording the DJ plays for him, Ingram follows Hastur's trail into the strange, uncivilized backwoods of Arkansas, where he hears rumors the musician has sold his soul to the Devil. But as Ingram closes in on Hastur and those who have crossed his path, he'll learn there are forces much more malevolent than the Devil and reckonings more painful than Hell....

In a masterful debut of Lovecraftian horror and Southern gothic menace, John Hornor Jacobs reveals the fragility of free will, the dangerous power of sacrifice, and the insidious strength of blood.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd Campbell | 2/20/2014

    " A short but enjoyable eldritch journey through the south of the US. A top effort for a debut novel "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cover to Cover Books | 1/4/2014

    " Needed to be a much longer book with a slower buildup. A good first effort. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Hallum | 12/20/2013

    " A clever mishmash of noir, Lovecraftion Horror and southern literature. Though none of the good guys really went wibbly wobbly like they should in any good Lovecraft, it was still quite good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly West | 11/29/2013

    " Easily one of the best books I've read this year. Part mystery, part horror, and part southern gothic, I've never read anything like it. But its true strength is its lovely prose, its rich atmosphere, and its vivid characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Damien Grintalis | 9/25/2013

    " I loved this book! Dark, atmospheric, and unsettling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana Thayer | 5/31/2013

    " Wow...dark, really dark, but good. Compelling story, interesting combination of Zoroastrianism and dark beliefs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/5/2013

    " A blood-soaked horror fantasy delight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gmkurdi | 5/4/2013

    " I wrote a lengthy review of John Horner Jacobs' brilliant first novel on Amazon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 2/3/2013

    " Good story but gets very graphic and explicit at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianne Guidice | 11/12/2012

    " Loved it! John Hornor Jacobs took a usual genre and put a rather unique spin that takes place in Arkansas... Nice horror/mystery weekend quicky that is to be enjoyed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse Bullington | 12/11/2011

    " Still reading, still reading--Blues man named Ramblin John Hastur is stirring up trouble in 1950s Arkansas, and it's up to Bull Ingram to track'em down. Most excellent so far... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 11/8/2011

    " So far, it reads great! I love the style of the writing and the creepiness of the south is a great fit to the Lovecraftian Mythos.

    Will write up more as I get closer to the finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 9/15/2011

    " A short but enjoyable eldritch journey through the south of the US. A top effort for a debut novel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Synde | 9/9/2011

    " Excellent Southern Gothic Horror with some Noir thrown in. A great readd for those who like a little Elder Gods with their horror? Very original idea.. most enjoyable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gregor | 9/7/2011

    " The hard-boiled investigator was brutal, which I liked. Too much of the story was driven by fate (coincidence) and divine intervention, which I'm not too keen on. Overall, it was a solid, entertaining debut and I'd certainly pick up another book by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clyde | 8/31/2011

    " Southern Gods is pretty good fantasy-horror.
    The story follows the fortunes of humans unwittingly caught up in a conflict between gods both good and evil as they battle in post WW2 Southern USA. Things get bloody. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Burgoo | 8/20/2011

    " An Ellroy inspired protagonist takes a southern roadtrip & meets Lovecraftian horrors. Great texture & a unique setting. My only disappointment was not enough blues! "
