HASH(0x9aa0eb94) out of 5 stars A great mix of horror and scifi May 8 2014

Format: Paperback
A great collection of short stories for anyone who enjoys horror and dark science fiction. My favorite story was "Mr. Templar," but they were all good. Can't wait to see what's next from Jason Sizemore!

HASH(0x9aa0ebe8) out of 5 stars A wonderful array of short stories sure to get under your skin. Aug. 9 2014
By Nicole P. - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you read intros, do as Mr. Girard says and just read the book first, that intro will be there waiting when you're done. I don't know if Mr. Sizemore chose the order of the stories to start small and build to the most intense but it's really what it felt like. While the first story, "Caspar" delivers a major shock and let's the reader know the title of the anthology serves a definite purpose, it is not the most sinister of the stories. I can't even choose the worst ending for all the irredeemable characters because each one has a major shudder factor.

While some stories are futuristic or set in another part of the world, the common thread is the Kentucky countryside. If you don't understand the culture of the South, you may miss some of the deeper intricacies herein. Big Coal, dirty rednecks, and creepy church services are all weaved in the lifestyle. And let me tell you, as someone who has grown up in the culture, it's a sinister dark landscape. Mr. Sizemore definitely pulls the terror of that landscape in and runs wild with it, like a crazed apprentice with the wizard's wand.

I won't go into detail of each story, or give any spoilers, but a few of my favourites were:

Hope- Humanity faces its end but the real story lies in Hope finding the traitor of her coven.

Plug and Play- darkly humorous peek into employee motivation and drug trafficking of the future.

Pranks- All I'll say is...Cancer Beast! The bile still reaches my throat thinking about it!

Shotgun Shelter- If you're sensitive to animal abuse, read with caution but know the irredeemable never win in this book.

The Dead and Metty Crawford- Zombies!! I really liked this story and the little symbolism in it...awesome.

The Sleeping Quartet- I laughed out loud a few times and then curled up in a ball from how disturbing it was. The really eerie thing is you're not sure if it was real or not! (I have heard a rumor it was though *cries a little inside*)

Yellow Warblers- One of the most unexpected endings in a short story I have EVER read! Totally floored.

All the stories were excellent and I can honestly say they all burrowed under my skin and left their eggs behind to hatch. If you have a copy of this anthology, you have increased the beauty of your collection. If you're trying to decide to buy it...what are you waiting for? Go now and add it to your shelves!!

HASH(0x9aa1003c) out of 5 stars Don't look for any happy endings in this great collectiin May 23 2014
By Frank Errington - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Review copy

On his personal website, there's a photo of Jason Sizemore with the following caption, "Jason Sizemore-- Publisher, Editor, Hillbilly." The hillbilly being a salute to his Kentucky heritage, but there's something missing from that caption. He should add "Writer" to that description.

Irredeemable is a strong collection of 18 stories running the gamut of speculative fiction, with strengths in Science Fiction and Horror, much like Apex magazine, the mag for which he is publisher and editor.

One of the things I liked about this collection of new, and previously published, shorts is that there isn't a happy ending in sight. Among this collection of wonderfully strange stories are a Cristmas tale, a story of claustrophobia, snake worshiping, first contact, doomsday, androids and, of course, zombies and much, much more.

irredeemable is a lot like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.

Among my personal favorites is " Plug and Play," where Clayton Edwards is made into a drug mule and kicked off space station 19-YX. When he falls to Earth, naked, in an escape pod, the following conversation ensues, "The old woman nodded and pointed a finger at Clayton. ' I thought you looked lost.' ' You would too, lady, if someone flushed you out of a space station.'...'I need a doctor.' ' Of course you do dear. That's why I'm taking you to my psychiatrist.' ' You don't understand. I got two kilos of space mold in my stomach.' 'Dear, why'd you eat so much space mold?' 'I didn't eat it." Clayton scanned the area for more police officers. 'I'm an involuntary drug mule.'"

It's rare when I can look back at the stories in a collection and say I enjoyed every one of them, but that was certainly true of Irredeemable. Kudos to Jason Sizemore and Seventh Star Press.

Highly recommended.
HASH(0x9aa103fc) out of 5 stars Amazing collection from a talented author Nov. 4 2014
By Matthew Scott Baker - Published on
Format: Paperback
I never get tired of saying this: I absolutely love anthologies! The short story is an art form that can convey so much in so few words. As such, you get a lot of bang for your literary buck with these collections. Author Jason Sizemore offers up a heaping helping of dark speculative fiction in his recent release, IRREDEEMABLE. Chocked full of variety and entertainment, this is one collection you will definitely want to add to your library.

The talent in this book is stunning. Sizemore writes with the skill of an aged author, one who has spent decades honing his craft. The stories are inventive and imaginative, short treks into the surreal and the sublime. Anthologies just don’t get much better than this.

Every story in IRREDEEMABLE is written well and flows smoothly. Sizemore brings a unique perspective to existing tropes, while at the same time illuminating his readers with new concepts as well. From zombies to aliens to spirits, there is a little bit of everything in there, which makes the entertainment value of the book skyrocket.

One of my favorite stories in this collection is “Hope”. In this tale, a woman named Hope turns out to be the key to the future of humanity. Unfortunately, only she and one more person on the planet are aware of that fact. This is a very original story that left me smiling after I finished it.

Another of my favorites is “Little Digits”. This one-page story supremely highlights the massive talent of Sizemore, as it offers up a whole lot of drama in just a few sentences. Ms. Jean is having a bad day in class. Her students have shown her how the tables can turn, and as a result, Ms. Jean might very well learn that sometimes the punishment does NOT fit the crime.

IRREDEEMABLE is a major win for me, and I’m proud to have a copy of it in my library. Do yourself a favor and pick up your copy today. You won’t regret it. The book is available now in a variety of formats.
HASH(0x9aa104e0) out of 5 stars to put out a book that is great is outstanding Oct. 31 2014
By Amanda Johnson-Parker - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jason Sizemore is not one to be underestimated. He is a jack of all trades. How he found the time to write a book, is impressive. However, to put out a book that is great is outstanding! He takes us back to his old stomping grounds, which happens to be my stomping grounds also. The Appalachian Mountains hold many stories, and even more secrets. Mr. Sizemore gives us a peak into some of those. While some stories like “Ice Cream at the Falls” is very subtle, you then have “The Sleeping Quartet” that stick with you like biscuits and gravy. It has that deep creep factor in the beginning that quickly turns to pure horror up to the last page. Not to give away all the stories, but my favorite is “Yellow Warblers”. Not only does this story take place in my hometown, but it mimics like their now. His introduction to the small alien in the beginning of the story takes you aback. It is such a matter of fact approach and you automatically think, “why no back story?” How do you just put it out there like that? But that is the brilliance of his work. You do not need the back story, or a formal introduction to the small alien. And because of this, he created one hell of a story that goes down as one of my favorites, and not just for this book. This book has such a wide variety into the unknown that you will find a story that you will love, if not more. And you will like them all. Do not hesitate to purchase, you will not only read it once.
