Inhaltsangabe: Are you laid off, downsized, undersized? Call us. We employ. 1-800-555-0606 How lucky do you feel? So reads the business card from LIMBUS, INC., a shadowy employment agency that operates at the edge of the normal world. LIMBUS's employees are just as suspicious and ephemeral as the motives of the company, if indeed it could be called a company in the ordinary sense of the word. In this shared-world anthology, five heavy hitters from the dark worlds of horror, fantasy, and scifi pool their warped takes on the shadow organization that offers employment of the most unusual kind to those on the fringes of society. One thing's for sure - you'll never think the same way again about the fine print on your next employment application!
"Limbus, Inc. is one of the strangest, creepiest things I've read in a long time. Guaranteed to send all you conspiracy theorists out there into paroxysms of paranoid delight! Well, you did warn us." - Brian Knight, author of The Phoenix Girls, Book 1: The Conjuring Glass
"It's an inventive piece of fiction that will haunt your dreams forever." And remember, always read the fine print." - Betsy A. Riley, HorrorZine
"The five novellas in Limbus, Inc. are the kind of horror fiction I love most: Smart, scary, funny, edgy, melancholy, and set in a world I recognize all too well. The most frightening elements here aren't alien princesses with insatiable appetites, ancient murder cults, or shapeshifting assassins, but desperation, hunger, neverending wars, and a wealthy class all too eager to prey on the rest of us. Limbus, Inc. isn't just kickass - it's five kinds of kickass." - Lisa Morton, four-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Castle of Los Angeles
"Limbus, Inc. is the best shared world anthology I've come across in the last twenty years. It was absolutely outstanding - five perfect stories from five of the top names in the business. Even the best shared world anthologies can, at times, play a little fast and loose with continuity, but not so Limbus, Inc. Editor Anne C. Petty has put together such a flexible, yet finely realized world here that the five voices she's brought together sound like a choir warmed up in hell. This book is going to set the bar for shared world anthologies for a long time to come. Mark my words." - Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Inheritance
"An infinity of Earths and an infinity of possibilities...all connected by a single shadowy entity--Limbus, Inc. Their goal: to match the person to the job, regardless of where that job might lead in time and space. The result: aliens, ancient gods, and characters with secrets too dark to be revealed but too dangerous to keep hidden. Too large for a single volume, the tales of Limbus, Inc., explore worlds of the imagination. And far beyond. But beware! Like so many good things, the stories of Limbus, Inc., can be addicting. One is just not enough. For those of us who welcome the obsession to excellent storytelling, there is an entire volume...and more to come." - Dr. Michael R. Collings
"Five excellent authors. Five wonderful stories. Slaughterers and robot emissaries. Slave traders and monsters. Welcome to the amazing multiverse of Limbus, Inc." - Allyson Bird, Author
"Each author from Ethridge to Nassise, from Petty to Mayberry is diverse in their expertise yet share a common bond. Their gift for conjuring a sense of intrigue, manifested with rising tension of the unknown and where our protagonists will ultimately end up is unprecedented in today's contemporary horror fiction realm. We devour each of the authors' words at break neck speed with an appetite of digesting more and more of what's served up on the paranormal menu. " - Rick O'Shea, MoreHorror.com
"Listen up, fans. Limbus, Inc. is a delight. Remember all those alternate universes suggested by classics such as The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone? Turns out they're for real. Only one sinister corporation controls all of the entrances-and there are no exits." - Harry Shannon, Stoker nominated author of Dead and Gone and The Hungry
"Limbus Inc is a great anthology which really gets into what some people fear most. Which is the idea of what your willing to do to support yourself. It then shows you that there are even worse things to be afraid of. Limbus Inc is a great book for Science fiction and horror fans alike." - HorrorAddicts.com
