How lucky do you feel?
So reads the business card from LIMBUS, INC., a shadowy employment agency that operates at the edge of the normal world. LIMBUS's employees are just as suspicious and ephemeral as the motives of the company, if indeed it could be called a company in the ordinary sense of the word.
In this shared-world anthology, five heavy hitters from the dark worlds of horror, fantasy, and sci-fi pool their warped takes on the shadow organization that offers employment of the most unusual kind to those on the fringes of society.
One thing's for sure - you'll never think the same way again about the fine print on your next employment application!

A few good stories

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I might. It wasn't a selection I would likely listen to again, though I don't regret buying it.

What did you like best about this story?

One or two of the stories were pretty good. The rest weren't bad, but didn't really grab me.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gregory Zarcone’s performances?

Maybe. I don't think he was the right narrator for this selection.

Do you think Limbus, Inc. needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. There is some real potential here with the shared world concept. If there is another, it needs to be read by a different narrator. Zarcone wasn't the best choice here. His performance with most of it was jarring in that his voice inflection doesn't change much. A scene describing dismemberment looses something when read in the same jaunty tone associated with a scene of comedic absurdity.

Any additional comments?

This is an ok start to what could be a good shared world series. I found myself happy to start the book, but kind of ready for it to end too. I'm not entirely sure if my lukewarm reception to it came from the stories themselves (honestly, there were one or two I just couldn't get into) or if the narration injured it. I have no issue with Gregory Zarcone as a narrator, but I think he was a bad fit for a collection like this.
