  • Amazingly enough Limbus Book II is better than book I of the series Not only did Joe R Lansdale win the Bram Stoker award for his story in the long fiction category, Fishing for Dinosaurs , and Jonathan Mayberry s second installment of his ware PI story this time co staring his other character Joe Ledger , hit the mark, there was not a bad story in this collection.Once again the nice mix of Science Fiction, Mystery and Horror stories hit the sweet spot.It s hard to believe that an anthology seri [...]

  • The world is a stage, life is a play, and we are the puppets It s better not to ask who pulls the strings How lucky do you feel That question echoed through the world s underground, scrawled on bathroom walls, spray painted across subway tunnel exits, written on paper that fluttered through bleak side streets in the winter wind, printed on cheap business cards tacked to corkboard displays in darkened hallways But always beneath one name Limbus Matthew Sellers revealed the truth of Limbus, Inc to [...]

  • This follow up to an acclaimed shared world anthology that features some of the best writers in business pushes the envelope even further Ex hacker, Conrad is in hiding from the events of the first book Like a tongue to a sore tooth, he s pulled back into the dark net The real, hidden internet He itches to get back on the trail of a shadowy corporation known as Limbus Inc Limbus Inc requires no resume submissions, no ads for employment No, my dear friends They will find you Limbus Inc preys on t [...]


  • Take some of the five most talented scary guys out there writing and put their keyboards to work and you are left with a really frightening look at a company that might want to think twice about joining Limbus Inc is the name on the business card that suddenly finds its way into the hands of those that need saving the most Many times it is when they are on their last nickel, seeing the bottom of the glass of that last drink or wondering if life is worth it when the card falls into their hands wi [...]


  • They did it again The imagination and dark humor in these stories are great the first volume was fun, the authors took it a little darker this time but still worth the read.


  • I received a free copy of this book in return for a review, via the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.I had never known a woman like her Enigmatic, strong, purposeful, and someone with a bit of dinosaur fishing experience.This book follows the same format as the first Limbus Inc, book, with a frame story plus several novellas telling separate stories, and I enjoyed this book better than the first possibly because it didn t start with a story about a slaughterhouse worker This time the frame s [...]


  • I must predicate my review by disclosing that I received this e book as an Early Reviewers copy from LibraryThing in return for a review in August last year, but I only just read it Having read the first Limbus book a couple of years ago I knew what to expect, but I still found the use of an employment agency which always finds the right person for the right job no matter how strange or how expensive as an overall connecting framework for a series of short stories innovative and interesting The [...]


  • Limbus Inc Book II is a good follow up to the original Limbus Inc and best of all, you don t have to read the first one to enjoy it.Limbus Inc Book II has the same supernatural and horror feel as the first one The only story that I didn t really like was Fishing for Dinosaurs For me, it had an unsatisfying ending As I progressed thorough the book however, I found myself wondering if there would be a story that would really grab my attention, and then, I started to read the last part Three Guys W [...]


  • This is the second volume of stories about Limbus, Inc Each story presents a new view of Limbus Each person who finds a business card is given a choice of accepting employment The choices that are made and its impact on lives are varied and never dull I didn t expect to get drawn in so quickly I found that I wanted to keep learning about this mysterious company and the people they employ Take a chance and see how lucky you feel I received a review copy through LibraryThing s Early Reviewer grou [...]


  • IntriguingI ve been a fan of shared universes since Wild Cards and Thieves World But so many fall far short of expectations Not so with Limbus Inc Each story builds mystery instead of offering solutions Yet each story is complete Their job is done and they were the best suited for that job I started with book 2, I am going back to get book 1 I am hoping there will be to follow Out of all the stories, my favorite character is Sam Hunter I liked the idea of his tale, and the humor in the telling [...]


  • This followup to Limbus, Inc is every bit as good as the predecessor Once again it is a loosely connected set of stories, with some being sequels of sorts to the previous book As in my last review, I won t go into the stories themselves, so as not to spoil any surprises, and there were a few notable ones here I really loved the final story Spectacular doesn t do the book justice This is my top contender for best of 2015, so check it out


  • I received this book from Library Thing Early Reviewers I thought Limbus, Inc II by Jonathan Maberry, Harry Shannon, Gary A Braunbeck, Joe R Lansdale, and Joe McKinney to be exciting and full of variety Limbus II is a sequel to Limbus Inc Limbus Inc is a very unique employment agency Recruiters offer contracts for employment tailored exactly to the job seeker in question But a word to the wise it s always a good idea to read the fine print.


  • Even better than the first Limbus, that shadowy sinister agency, is back, still covertly keeping our world spinning on its axis as we sleep.I was sad to read that Anne C Petty, writer and editor for the first book passed away, after a battle with cancer.This second installment is very entertaining, and I can t wait to read another Limbus collection.


  • Overall a very good read I liked some of the stories than others but that s not unusual I liked it well enough to get the first Limbus.


  • Limbus, Inc Book 2 is a shared anthology featuring some heavy hitters in the horror genre, masterfully edited by Brett Talley Weaving into all of these stories is a shadowy hiring agency called Limbus Inc that seems to find just the right people for a given job provided they are desperate enough to take it The interludes that weaved in between the stories were probably my favorite part of the book They followed a hacker who was being fed the same stories that the reader was reading In the proces [...]


  • Prologue by Cesky Krumlov Zero At The Bone by Harry Shannon First Interlude Whispers In Shadow Fishing For Dinosaurs by Joe R Lansdale Second Interlude No Good Dead Lost And Found by Joe Mckinney I initially gave this one a 5 star rating, primarily because it resonated with my experience I have lost someone near and dear to me to a stupid traffic crash and I hurt all the time because they are not here , but upon thinking on the story I had to roll it back a bit No spoilers, but some things just [...]


  • The anthology starts off with a short piece by Harry Shannon This guy has absolute mastery of the long short story so this entry alone merits the cost of admission The last story was by another master Jonathan Maberry writes a fight scene like no other, probably because of his extensive martial arts training Most of the stories in between were first rate, though there was one that I was just waiting for it to finish Not saying which, because somebody might skip it who would otherwise have enjoye [...]


  • Very good collection It had everything from drunk police officers to werewolves Oh, and a secret hidden earth It was my first exposure to several of these authors And I think I found some new authors to add to my expanding to read list The different ways the connecting theme was worked into each story was very unique I do not usually read anthologies but in this case, I m glad I did Very nice


  • All of these stories really worked within the context of the shared world theme of Limbus Inc save one and even that one was not bad, just not my cup o tea and no, I m not going to tell you which one Still overall, a very entertaining and well written collection with some of today s top authors.


  • As with the first volume, not at all for me.with the exception of the final story, which shared the same main character as the best story from the first bookd the second story was even better both of these were by Jonathan Maberry, so good on you, Mr Maberry.


  • I enjoyed Limbus, Inc s second collection but not quite as much as the first The tales were nicely tied together and Three Guys Walk into a Bar was the highlight of the collection.


  • Good varietyGood stories with a lot of variety Even the overall story that is used to flow into the next short story is well written.


  • Agency from hell storiesI love this book I enjoyed reading about Sam Hunter and also the story about the cop looking for a murderer Love this series you should read it


  • SOME WEIRDED OUT STUFF IT ISHello, this is good stuff Way out there Very entertaining and enjoyable to read If you like the fringe, then you will love this stuff Thanks


  • Mostly good one boring stories set in the Limbus universe The standout is of course Jonathan Maberry s Three Guys Walk Into A Bar I read it once before, but it s such fun to have Joe Ledger, Malcolm Crow and Sam Hunter together in Pine Deep, so I had to read it again.


  • Dark, weird, and captivating stories While this was my introduction to Limbus Inc and the shared world experience, the stories and theme hooked me immediately Clearly, I ll have to delve deeper into this mysterious entity.
