Review

"John Langan’s Sefira and Other Betrayals (Hippocampus), an outstanding collection of horror stories by a literary writer whose work will unnerve you as deeply as Shirley Jackson’s."—Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

"John Langan is a beast of a contemporary horror writer. Sefira and Other Betrayals would be career-defining for some authors. In Langan's case, this is merely his best work this decade."—Laird Barron, author of Black Mountain

"John Langan is a Leviathan of modern weird fiction."—Paul St. John Mackintosh, L. A. Review of Books

"John Langan is one of the few great wizards who not only understands but as mastered the magic of the darkly weird.  His prose is both beautiful, fantastical dream and terrifying nightmare, subtle in its delivery and staggering in its implication.  In Sefira and Other Betrayals, readers stand on the shore of a strange sea full of monsters, with its tide of secrets and emotions tugging the ground out slowly from underneath.  Undoubtedly, readers can't help but be drawn in by its surreal and inexorable undertow."—Mary SanGiovanni, author of Behind the Door and host of Cosmic Shenanigans podcast

"With Sefira and Other Betrayals John Langan cements the fact that he is one of the strongest voices in literary horror. His willingness to tell a story that pulls no punches is refreshing. The fact that his prose is so richly textured is beautiful. It's a divine combination that is resent in all of works and I love and envy the man's talent."—James A. Moore, author of Boomtown and the Seven Forges fantasy series. 

"Langan is a master of the short-story form, and his trade in the terrifying and supernatural should not take away from the literary nature of these layered tales full of thought-provoking dread and relentless monsters, and the lyrical beauty of the words that tie it all together."—Becky Spratford, Booklist Online

 

 

Product Description

From the award-winning writer of The Fisherman comes a new collection of stories. A pair of disgraced soldiers seek revenge on the man who taught them how to torture. A young lawyer learns the history of the secret that warped her parents’ marriage. A writer arrives at a mansion overlooking the Hudson River to write about the strange paper balloons floating through its grounds. A couple walks a path that shows them their past, present, and terrible future. A woman and her husband discover a cooler on the side of the road whose contents are decidedly unearthly. A man driving cross country has a late-night encounter with a figure claiming to be the Devil. And in the short novel that gives the collection its title, a woman chases a monster in a race against time.
