“Scott R. Jones is a genuine master of horror, thoroughly contemporary and at the same time rooted in the best traditions of the field. His work ranges from heights of cosmic awe to the depths of the darkest psychology, and I predict he has by no means finished astonishing us. May he carry his uncanny flame into territories he has yet to reveal, as only he can.”

— Ramsey Campbell

In Shout Kill Revel Repeat, Scott R. Jones blends mind-blowing science fiction and mysticism with Lovecraftian concepts, stunningly mutated into unique configurations to excite even the most jaded Mythos reader. Throughout this standout debut collection, there are compelling themes of identity, transformation, and inescapable doom, enacted against vivid backgrounds both mundane and nightmarishly alien. With his staggering imagination and beautiful prose voice, Jones proves himself to be among the absolute best of our contemporary writers of weird fiction.”

— Jeffrey Thomas, author of Punktown

“Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos is a conceptual pearl worth preserving in spite of the hermetic shell of his racism […] and the long-expired pulp cliches within. But where so many modern authors haphazardly grind up shell and meat and get only echoes of anachronistic chills, Scott R. Jones extracts and mounts the pearl in a post-everything setting that artfully restores its nihilistic luster. Cyberpunk eyeball-kicks! Post-human paranoia! Corporate eschatology! But seriously, what Jones understands so well that separates him from the rest of us Innsmouth-breathers is not the power of the Mythos to untether our fragile minds, but our ability to […] normalize the unthinkable.”

“Scott R. Jones is a psychonaut, a visionary, a marauder who forays into the farthest corners of the psyche, from which fathomless hollows he brings you these seventeen dark gems. There’s horror to be found here, and sf, and stories that defy classification—but the hand that takes yours and guides you through is steady, with a strong, steely grip. He is a writer—and these are stories—of consequence.”

— Matthew M. Bartlett, author of Gateways to Abomination and Rangel

“Jones’ fiction is a shot of DMT harvested from the re-animated corpse of an elder god injected straight into your de-calcifying third eye. Shout Kill Revel Repeat is entheogenic cosmic horror all the way down.”

— Jonathan Raab, author of The Lesser Swamp Gods of Little Dixie

“At once topical and timeless; frequently science-fictional and always metaphysical, the stories Scott R. Jones has collected in Shout Kill Revel Repeat show what tales of the capital-W Weird are still capable of in the hands of a storyteller who knows the genre’s history and who isn’t afraid to push it in new directions.”  

— Orrin Grey, author of Guignol & Other Sardonic Tales
