Big, Exclusive Cover Reveal: Jeremy Robert Johnson Books

Night Worms has been so eager to share with readers and fans of Jeremy Robert Johnson this exclusive news & cover reveals. Night Worms included Jeremy's book, THE LOOP in a package last year and it was a huge hit with our subscribers. One of the questions we got asked the most after most people read it was, how can I get my hands on more of JRJ's work?

Jeremy's back catalog were released through very indie, small press publishers and many of the titles you are about to see were out of print (unless you wanted to spend like $900 on a paperback of Skullcrack City). Our early subscribers received IN THE RIVER in one of our very first packages. We're long time fans of JRJ.


So this is VERY exciting news and we hope you will join us in celebrating the release of these amazing horror/bizzaro, cult classics widely available for the first time in a long time.

COMING AUGUST 2021! Please follow JRJ on Twitter for a special release date announcement soon...

Skullcrack City


"A nightmarish yet hilarious journey that begins in the ugly world of toxic mortgages and progresses to the slightly uglier world of brain-eating monsters lurking in dark alleys. You're in for an entirely unpredictable ride, the tale spinning ludicrously out of control as the hero uncovers layer after grotesque layer of a vast macabre conspiracy. Skullcrack City is original, utterly insane, and a shitload of fun."—David Wong, author of John Dies at the End

You weren't always an agent of the apocalypse. You used to be a banker. Who knew that too much coffee and a few bad decisions would lead to the end of the world?

Life as a corporate drone was killing S.P. Doyle, so he decided to bring down the whole corrupt system from the inside. But after discovering something monstrous in the bank's files, he was framed for murder and trapped inside a conspiracy beyond reason. Now Doyle's doing his best to survive against a nightmare cabal of crooked conglomerates, DNA-doped mutants, drug-addled freak show celebs, experimental surgeons, depraved doomsday cults, and the ultra-bad mojo of a full-blown Hexadrine habit. Joined by his pet turtle Deckard, and Dara, a beautiful missionary with a murderous past, Doyle must find a way to save humankind and fight the terrible truth at the heart of...



All the Wrong Ideas


This is where our worst impulses take us. This is the past come back to do much more than haunt us. These are the moments where we cross into madness, never to return. This is what happens when we devote ourselves wholeheartedly to acting out…


From parasite-riddled pulp experiments to post-apocalyptic road trip freak-outs, from suddenly self-aware nuke narratives to tales of revenge told in reverse, ALL THE WRONG IDEAS collects the earliest and most absurd stories from bestselling weird fiction phenomenon Jeremy Robert Johnson in one wild, wondrous volume. Includes the novella “Extinction Journals,” the brand new short story “The Seat of Reason,” and 17 other unsettling entry points into JRJ’s dark, delirious, and definitively damaged world.

"Johnson writes with an energy that propels you through some very dark spaces indeed and into something profoundly unsettling but nonetheless human."

Brian Evenson, author of A Collapse of Horses

"I've seen the future and it's bizarre, it's beautifully berserk, it's Jeremy Robert Johnson."

Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Only Good Indians


"A powerful imagination, a great talent for storytelling, writing chops that allow him to tackle any genre, and a flowing, dynamic voice that, if Johnson were a singer, would extend to an impressive eight octaves."

―Electric Literature



An intensely moving tale of survival, loss, and madness along the river’s edge. A father and son fishing lesson becomes a nightmarish voyage to the sea in this visionary testament to the lengths we will go for those we love.
"The simple story of a father and son going fishing somehow morphs into a soul-shattering tale of anxiety, loss, and vengeance wrapped in a surreal narrative about the things that can keep a person between this world and the next. Johnson is a maestro of the weird and one of the best writers in bizarro, crime, and horror, but this one erases all of those genres and makes him simply one of the best."
―PANK Magazine
"This is superb fiction with a raw, throbbing, aching heart at its core that is far too big to be contained within the book's pages but that is, by some bizarre magic, still there."
―Vol. 1 Brooklyn

"In the River is a brilliant offering; the pain and strange beauty of it will wash over you and sweep you away."
―Scream Magazine 

"Gripping, horrifying, surreal...Think The Old Man and the Sea meets The Pearl meets Pet Sematary...But, dare I say it, In the River takes you to even darker places..."
