    One thought on “Limbus, Inc.”

    1. Not a bad story in this genre spanning collection. You have Science Fiction, Mystery, Horror and combinations of all of the mentioned genres. The setup for the collection allows this to seamlessly take place. The book starts out with Science Fiction by a man I have never read named Ethridge, and the writing is so well done I will be looking for more of his work. The PI story by Mr. Maberry finishes the collection with you wanting more. And I understand there is a second installment. Contents:19 [...]

    2. 4.5 stars!This is a book of novellas all set in the same world, with a linking narrative in between. I think this concept is pretty cool and these authors made it look easy.Jonathan Maberry's story stole the show. It was a wild ride and I remember this lead character from another short story collection, the title of which I won't mention because it will spoil this story. I liked this character then and I like him even more now.Every story in this collection was above average. I'm especially look [...]

    3. I won a copy of Limbus, Inc. through the "first-reads" giveaway, but have to confess that this is the type of book that I would have chosen to read, anyway.The concept is that of five individual tales (each penned by a different author), linked together by a narrative that starts off the book, and then has interludes returning to this central theme throughout. The "central theme" is that of the enigmatic Limbus Corporation, and their motto of "we employ". there are quite a few genres brought in [...]

    4. There is a blurb on the back cover that invites us to get street level in crazy town. Yes indeedy! Five outstanding novellas, all appropriately creepy, and all tied together by a common thread that presents itself as an employment agency by the name of Limbus, Inc.Although it was difficult to decide on a favorite, Jonathan Maberry's 'Strip Search' was right up there at the top of the tree. It was spookily reminiscent of those old Raymond Chandler tec-noir novels featuring Philip Marlowe, but the [...]

    5. *Review for the audio version*Limbus Inc. is a very good shared world anthology of short stories revolving around a mysterious and dark employment agency and its hires. There are some very good authors on display here, only one of which I had not previously read. The audio narration was very well done and the cadence and tone of each of the individual stories flowed together nicely.Right off the bat with Etheridge’s story, I knew this was going to be a little sci-fi/fantasy heavy for me. The r [...]

    6. Review forthcoming. Too many bourbons so cut me some slack, Jack, you'll just have to wait. Wow, that Larceny single batch was some good stuff. Anyway, on to the book -First I would like to thank the authors and publisher for the ARC I won through and wish them much success with the book because if this does turn out to be a series, I'm first in line for book 2.You can read the synopsis above so I won't bore you with a repeat of that. These are 5 great short stories in a shared world, each with [...]

    7. A shared anthology of five short stories (and one wrap-around tale) that all deal with a shady recruitment company which is definitely more than it at first appears, Limbus, Inc. is grand in concept, but somewhat uneven in delivery. Firstly, this should not be classified as a horror anthology. Going in with that mind-set is likely to evoke disappointment as this one is more sci-fi than it is a thriller or a horror - though it certainly contains enough elements of these as well. Hell, there are e [...]

    8. Limbus, Inc. isn't a new concept: shared world anthologies go back as far as Robert Asprin's Thieve's World series--and perhaps even farther--but that doesn't diminish the impact and enjoyment of the book. Limbus, Inc. is an employment agency, only more rarefied. It's clients have, shall I say, unique demands, and Limbus, Inc. helps find people who will fit those demands. Through five tales, we get to explore the world of Limbus, Inc All of the stories were good, though I enjoyed the ones by Joe [...]

    9. Are you down on your luck? Are you unemployed? Well The Limbus corporation is here to help. They already have a job that would be perfect for you, all you have to do is call. Of course the job may be to kill things to feed an alien princess or to help an alien creature who enslaves humans find a portal to his home world. Or maybe the job will be to stop a sacrifice that will keep evil from taking over the world.They may not be glamorous jobs but at least you will be employed. Then again maybe it [...]

    10. Fantastic read. Perfect short story format for traveling. The story-within-a-story is also well written. I could not put this book down. I found myself recounting the tales to my travel companion, each one better than the last. The anticipation, pacing and tightly written stories were riveting.

    11. I would like to thank 'LibraryThing' and JournalStone Publishing for the early reviewer free copy of Limbus Inc.I should preface by saying I am not a horror/sci-fi aficionado by any stretch, but this book was a very welcome diversion from some of the heavy biographies I finally put to bed. When I do read fiction I want to read the most innovative, creative writing that's out there, so I can ascertain the benchmark of language use from today's best authors. Suffice to say Limbus, Inc. didn't disa [...]

    12. Oh man, this was a fun ride! I found the idea of a shared-world anthology intriguing and Limbus, Inc. did not disappoint. The Limbus corporation is in place really only to kick start each of the stories. The premise is that they are an employment agency, but rather than you seeking their help, Limbus has already found and earmarked you for a specific job. We learn about these stories through an independent bookseller and publisher named Matthew who is given a book, containing many tales of the L [...]

    13. Review CopyWhat editor Amne C. Petty and the wonderful folks at JournalStone Publishing have done here is come up with an entertaining way to feature a number of writers in their stable where each one tells a tale using the common denominator of Limbus, Inc.The book is a well conceived, shared-world, anthology that got better with each new short and was tied together masterfully by yet another story from Brett J. Talley which begins in the Prologue, appears at times between stories and wraps thi [...]

    14. I must say, that I was looking forward to anything with Jonathan Maberry attached to it. He has become one of my got-to authors, when I need a good book to read. The man just knows how to tell a story. Now, with that being said, his story is the only one that I rate 5 stars for, and I will tell you why. Oh wait; I already did. He knows how to write a story. The ratings are as follows: The Slaughter Man (Benjamin Kane Ethridge)- 2.5 Stars: I just didn't get this one, or particularly like it. It s [...]

    15. Book Info: Genre: Anthology/Shared World/Dark FictionReading Level: AdultRecommended for: those who enjoy speculative fiction, dark fictionTrigger Warnings: assassination, killing, murder, flayingMy Thoughts: Five novellas, different characters but the same world. A mysterious employment agency that can find the perfect job just for you but what are the consequences? That is the question raised in these stories, ranging from science-fiction to Lovecraftian horror, to urban fantasy noir. There is [...]

    16. Limbus, Inc edited and cover story by Anne C. Perry, tells the story of an employment agency that exists just outside the everday world. Its recruitment methods are targeted directly to those it seeks, from an entry in the Yellow Pages that keeps changing to a business card that cannot be ignored (oftimes it has a hologram of a world that glitters as it rotates). Five different people, in stories from individual authors, are recruited by this strange company that offers strange jobs to those str [...]

    17. First off, I won my copy of this book via a giveaway hosted by .Fan of "The Twilight Zone"? How about "The Alfred Hitchcock Show"? "Tales from the Crypt?" "Friday the Thirteenth"? How about the movie "Men in Black"? If you answered yes to any of those, odds are that you will devour this book. Luckily for me, I can answer yes to all of the above. I was entranced, enthralled, and immersed from the first paragraph in the prologue. Limbus, Inc. We employ. Five authors, five stories, one corporation [...]

    18. First and foremost, let me say I have never been happier to be employed by a company that only abuses me on occasion than I have after reading this ARC Giveaway. That being said, Limbus, Inc. was quite different than the books I tend to lean toward. It is compiled by a series of novellas, each telling a separate tale regarding the employment agency from hell: Limbus, Inc. I really enjoyed the premise of the book, it was unique and had a Twilight Zone meets Doctor Who with a splash of the X-Files [...]

    19. Ichabod Templeton hides in the shadows until he believes it's safe enough for him to enter Matthew Sellers small store. Ichabod gives Matthew a manuscript he wants Matthew to publish. Ichabod wants no payment nor any credit for the book. All he wants is for the book to be published, and he believes that once Matthew has read the manuscript he will have no choice but to publish it. Ichabod believes the information contained in the book he's brought to Matthew is so compelling that Matthew will ha [...]

    20. I received a free copy of this book in return for a review, via the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.Welcome to the world of Limbus, Inc a shadow organisation at the edge of reality whose recruitment methods are low-rent, sketchy, even haphazard to the ordinary eye: a tattered flyer taped to a bus-stop shed or tacked to the bulletin board of a neighborhood Laundromat, a dropped business card, a popup ad on the Internet. Limbus's employees are as suspicious and ephemeral as the company, if in [...]

    21. -I recieved this book as an ARC for free through First Reads.-Now, on to the review. Limbus, Inc is a collection of stories set in the same shared-world anthology. It's an interesting mix, with stories ranging from sci-fi to supernatural - be forewarned that most are rather bloody, with especial emphasis on "The Slaughter Man" and "Strip Search." They're connected throughout with small snippets of a bookseller who has been given a journal with said stories scribbled in.I must say that while I d [...]

    22. Have you been laid off, downsized, or undersized? If you have, you might want to think twice, and then again, before accepting a job offer from Limbus, Inc. If, on the other hand, you’re into reading shared-world stories with a dark twist, you need to run, that’s right, run to the nearest computer and order a copy of Limbus, Inc.: Book 1, an anthology edited by Anne C. Petty of JournalStone, and containing cutting-edge tales by four award-winning authors.Limbus, Inc. is a mysterious employme [...]

    23. When a bookshop owner is handed a loosely bound manuscript by a stranger, he initially dismisses the man as a crackpot. At least, until he begins to leaf through the contents of the manuscript, which contains a series of accounts dealing with a strange, secretive employment agency called Limbus Incorporated, who always provide the perfect employee for their client's needs, even though the job may not always be in the best interests of the person taking it. Limbus, Inc. is a shared world antholog [...]

    24. The concept behind this book was very innovative, and not quite like anything else I have encountered before. It is collection of short stories from various different authors which all can work as stand alone stories, while at the same time operate within the same reality. Each of the stories revolves around the mysterious and ominous cooperation known as Limbus. As they say if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Limbus is generous, it offers employment to those most desperate, those [...]

    25. I won this book in a Goodread giveway.Limbus, Inc. is a book of five short stories all centered around a mysterious employment agency. Each story is written by a different author and they are all really fabulous.I've never been a big fan of short story compilations but the stories in this book meshed so well that I didn't feel like I was reading five whole different stories. The fact that each story had little in common with the others, aside from involving Limbus, Inc but still felt inherently [...]

    26. Managed to pick this up as an ARC. Honestly, I don't know that I've ever really read anything like it. It reminds me of those movies back in the 80s like Tales from the Darkside. You've got a book that is really five novellas bound together by one overarching story. And they are all really great. Three had a sci-fi bent, while two were straight horror of the Lovecraftian variety, with Jonathan Maberry throwing in some noir for good measure. Talley's was probably my favorite by a nose, though I r [...]

    27. I just finished Limbus Inc, and as usual I like to set down a few words to convey my immediate feelings. This was a really novel and inventive collection. The stories that stood out for me were Brett Talley's The Sacrifice and Johnathan Maberry's Strip Search. The other stories were solid and creative but I'm a supernatural horror guy, and a Lovecraftian in particular.To sum it up: a definite buy with great writing and some completely off the wall creativity. When I read something and get that t [...]

    28. Absolutely riveting. Limbus, Inc pulled me in from the beginning, and though I've completed the novel, it has yet to let me go. Each story has a different voice depending on the author, and each story has something unique to offer, but as a whole, the book is consistent in tone. Main characters are strong, stories are vivid, and each plot unfolds at just the right pace. A must read for anyone who enjoys dark fiction with a lot of subtance. I would only leave a warning to the faint of heart, just [...]

    30. A weird and terrifying set of short stories framed enticingly by a man reading the same stories you are reading -- only he knows that they are completely real. A nicely thematic Halloween read that takes you from a ravenous alien's ship to ancient sacrifices to time travel. A fun and gruesome read.
