Product description

Product Description

“The world is a stage, life is a play, and we are the puppets. It’s better not to ask who pulls the strings.”

How lucky do you feel?

That question echoed through the world’s underground, scrawled on bathroom walls, spray-painted across subway tunnel exits, written on paper that fluttered through bleak side-streets in the winter wind, printed on cheap business cards tacked to corkboard displays in darkened hallways. But always beneath one name—Limbus.

Matthew Sellers revealed the truth of Limbus, Inc. to the world, and in his tales of time travelers, intergalactic beings, and human sacrifice, he thought he had told it all. But the story of the shadowy employment agency that operates on the edge of the abyss, always finding the perfect person for the perfect job—no matter what the cost—had only begun.

This shared-world anthology continues the story of Limbus, Inc., as told by five masters of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. But beware, for once you learn the truth of Limbus, Inc., your world will never be the same. So it's time to ask yourself . . .

How lucky do you feel?

Format: Kindle Edition
I must predicate my review by disclosing that I received this e-book as an Early Reviewers copy from LibraryThing in return for a review in August last year, but I only just read it.

Having read the first Limbus book a couple of years ago I knew what to expect, but I still found the use of an employment agency - which always finds the right person for the right job no matter how strange or how expensive - as an overall connecting framework for a series of short stories innovative and interesting.

The stories here are an eclectic mix, with the only thing in common the linking idea that the protagonist has been hired for a specific job by Limbus Inc. "Three Guys Walk Into A Bar", the final story in the book, involves the same character as one of the stories in the first Limbus Inc. book, a private investigator who is remarkably suited to the type of job Limbus has found for him because he is a werewolf, is the one I enjoyed the most. The horror has been scaled down a bit from the story in the first book to its advantage.

Coming close was "The Transmigration of Librarian Blaine Evans" which immediately precedes it. The story of a meek and mild librarian who hits rock bottom after his wife and children leave him and is hired by Limbus and retrained as a stone cold killer, but is then sent on what might be just one job too many.

The connecting story of Conrad, a hacker looking into the dark web where he finds each of the stories in the book is also interesting. As he unlocks and reads each story his paranoia rises.

Very highly recommended.
