This epic 4-book saga had me skeptical at first: the first three installments come in three separate chapbooks, and while they held my interest, I wasn't sure where they were headed or what the point was. It's wonderfully weird and featured some amazing ideas and visuals, but I didn't know if the author would tie everything up in a way that would make these early sections valid.

Then I read the final installment, the novel-length YOUR CITIES, YOUR TOMBS, and was completely blown away.

Wow. Having read the first three books in this series I was extremely eager to finish the saga off, and what a finish it is. Krall states at the beginning that to understand the content of the book you need to have read the first book beforehand. I'm not so sure, as this novel feels self-contained. It does assume an intimacy with the characters beforehand, but within these covers is a complete arc of exploration of the deepest recesses of the human psyche. Do not take that to mean you should not ...more

What Jordan Krall has done with his body of work in recent years is conceive a new kind of mythos, much like Lovecraft, Dunsany and Ligotti did before him. This mythos involves old obscure tv shows and films that trigger some trapdoor in the human psyche, a recurring psychodrama that is always heralded by signals such as pancakes, hummingbirds and a giraffe on a bicycle. Sound cartoonish? Well, it's not.

Your Cities, Your Tombs is the final installment of the False Magic Kingdom series, and the f

A truly wonderful conclusion to the False Magic Kingdom cycle. Jordan Krall explores the deep recesses of the human mind very remarkably and does a superb job of drawing the world from a sick mind's perspective, with beautiful and haunting language. Your Cities, Your Tombs is easily one of the best books I have ever read.
