Awesome

Such a great set up. Then it all fell into place…what a great idea for a story. A bonus … at the back of the story are all the words I needed an explanation to unravel some key elements for me. This was a definite page turner for me. I have really been enjoying all of John’s work so far.

Evocative. Horrifying. Riveting

Blood & Mud by John Baltisberger is an absolutely riveting story! This novella is evocative, horrifying, and a truly interesting read. It is based on Jewish lore and offers an uncommon presentation of angels, demons, historic monsters, and our concept of evil. The story doesn’t just flow, it moves and pulls you along with it. Blood & Mud is part creature feature and part folklore horror. If you want a horrifying creature, you got it, and all the horrifying lore that goes with it. The story is completely entertaining, in a horror genre sort of way. Additionally, it has a lot of subtle depth for a novella. It’s a story about evil and the perception of evil—and consequently, the perception of good. The story doesn’t just entertain, it speaks to me. It makes me feel, it makes me think, it makes me cringe. I am becoming enraptured by Jewish Horror. The brief essay following the story is a fantastic addition and worth the read. It gives insight into why you see a different representation of those in the story. Very intriguing. I will have this shelf-worthy book in paperback, and I will read it again and again.
