An uncanny song that leads a bluesman on a road he would rather not walkIf you liked the first book in the series you'll probably like this one too; it's inventive historical horror and a fun read The only thing that dragged it down a little was that the reader wasn't uite brought on board smoothly The story seemed to assume that I had read this right after the first one and would remember things like oh what the main character from the first story was like what year it was where the location was But those are minor hitches; I picked up on a few hints here and there and followed along reasonably well The tale just wasn't at the point of being uite a masterpiece Still a good readRecommended if you like uncanny fiction written with a bit of poetry or in this case music

G a seed in his head a thing that will destroy the world if he lets it hatchThe mad ravings chase Deacon to his next gig His saxophone doesn't call up his audience from their seats it calls up monstrosities from across dimensions As Deacon flees chased by horrors and cultists he stumbles upon a runaway girl who is trying. A lyrical deeply weird horror novella about a bluesman with a song in his head that will end the world and since he's black in 1950s USA you can see the temptation As with the best horror humanity comes across as pretty much as awful as the Old Ones with tentacles although those are also spectacularly grim Khaw's writing is incredibly rich with the saturation turned up to 100 all the time to dizzying effect and her knack for vividly revolting images has not deserted her insert cannibalism 'dessert' gag here or just read the hilariously horrific Rupert Wong Cannibal Chef but what makes her horror really special for me is the sense of deep kindness and for lack of a better word humanity in the worst possible circumstances that underpins it She suggests we are just about better than this and it gives a vital grounding to the baroue events and blood splatter

A Song for uiet Persons Non Grata #2Deacon James is a rambling bluesman straight from Georgia a black man with troubles that he can't escape and music that won't let him go On a train to Arkham he meets trouble visions of nightmares gaping mouths and grasping tendrils and a madman who calls himself John Persons According to the stranger Deacon is carryin. Shortly after the death of his father bluesman Deacon James rolls into Arkham with an otherworldly song in his head and a sinister detective John Persons on his trailI follow Cassandra Khaw on twitter and she mentioned needing reviews for this Since I liked her first John Persons novella Hammers on Bone I was all over it like a ghoul on an unsuspecting citizen of ArkhamNoir mixed with cosmic horror is the best combo since chocolate and peanut butter and A Song for uiet is a prime example Much like in Lovecraft Country the horrors of the cosmos mesh with the mundane horrors of racism and ignorance Deacon James is much worried about white folks putting the screws to him partially in the form of the strange detective on his trail than horrors from beyond the starsMelding music with Lovecraftiana isn't a totally new concept but Khaw does a great job with it here The truth behind the song was in keeping with Lovecraftian tradition while still being fresh Actually the only gripe I have about the tale is I wish I'd read this one before Hammers on Bone so I wouldn't have an inkling what John Persons was up toKhaw's prose reminds me of Laird Barron's a great blend of pulp and poetry Where's my full length John Persons novel Khaw WhereSilliness aside this was one hell of a read Four out of five suamous suckered stars
