    One thought on “Biblia Longcrofta

    1. The Grim Reader (Beavisthebookhead.com)

      Fascinating read.What a wonderful book this is by Simon Marshall-Jones. It's really a series of short stories linked together in the fantastical world of Longcroft. Simeon soon settles into Longcroft life and encounters many strange and wonderful people. Mysterious black ships in the harbour, housing ancient secrets, statues that come to life at night and a house that houses souls in jars. There is some brilliant imagery going on and Simons effortless prose makes this a joy to read. Difficult to [...]

      Originally published at Risingshadow.Are you prepared to experience an unforgettable journey into an imaginary town full of miracles and wonders? Do you want to read something unique and unexpected? If you answered "yes" to both of these questions, you have just found a perfect book for yourself.Simon Marshall-Jones' Biblia Longcrofta was an enjoyable reading experience for me. It's one of the freshest and most original short story collections of the year, because it's a gorgeous display of unin [...]

      There are many places in fiction that stay with the reader long after the story is finished - Gormenghast Castle, The Shire, Narnia and suchlike. Well, you're going to be adding Longcroft to that list in the very near future, a remarkable creation from Simon Marshall-Jones (SMJ). Longcroft is a city that may well exist in a parallel universe (there is an explanation of just where it is and how it works but I'll leave the fun of finding out to you). It is one of those places where you never know [...]

      I’m a sucker for short story collections and anthologies – collections because a writer’s skills and imagination unfold from story to story, and anthologies because the talent and ideas on offer are always something to be excited about.Simon’s collection, featuring an incredible cover by Jim Burns, is a stunning showcase of a storyteller with heart, wit and an incredible imagination.The first tale, Biblia Longcrofta, follows the journey of a man in search of himself and his place in the [...]

      If, led by the stunning cover art by Jim Burns, you're expecting Biblia Longcrofta to be something akin to a 5.1 surround sound prog-rock epic, you may be disappointed. It's better than that. Simon Marshall-Jones's collection of (mostly) linked stories, all but two of which are set in the fictional - and extra-dimensional - town of Longcroft, is better described by comparing it to the themes that run through the songs of singer/songwriter/British psychedelist Robyn Hitchcock.At this point you ca [...]

      Like a fruit smoothie made with the strangest of fruits, I detected elements of Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman, HP Lovecraft but it was blended together with a new and interesting twist of SMJ

      A pleasant surprise, quite enjoyable.Was expecting Lovecraftian horror, but it's more mainstream and stylistically well crafted.

      When it comes to reviewing books, there is nothing harder than reviewing something that is written by a friend, even more so than when it is one of your oldest/best friends. You start to double guess yourself in both directions – am I being too gushing because it is a friend? Am I being too harsh because it is a friend?And then there is the thought that should people reading the review realise that you are in the least known to the writer they may believe that you are giving the good review si [...]

      Reading the first story in this anthology, Longcroft, was akin to experiencing someone's else's acid trip. Yep, it is pretty trippy! I just couldn't find the 'thread' to this story that I was looking for; maybe there was one, but it wasn't clear to me, and it's this story that I based my rating on, perhaps unfairly. It struck me that Longcroft is possibly an allegory of that mythical space that is supposed to exist between heaven and hell - where the lost are to try and find their way - and that [...]
