Blistering in it's body horror and the perils and worthlessness of hate. Short, brutal, the wet hot pleasure of scratching until it bleeds. ( )

What brilliant piece of storytelling; Clark's gumbo of eldritch horror, historical fiction, action pacing, and outre dialect fires on all cylinders. The most outstanding thing about Ring Shout is that, despite its glorious weirdness, it is saying something loud and clear about our own times and society. Hate is something one chooses to let in, and it eats a person hollow. ( )

great subject matter rooted in black history, and we need a lot more in this area of cross genre. and i will continue to follow his work with enthusiasm, because it's always imaginative and compelling. but this one gets A+ for research, whereas using that to make story exercises different muscles. so this novella needed another pass.

Doing Battle with Haters

What would possess a people to such an extent they would hold another people in bondage, and when freed commit horrible acts to suppress them to guarantee their own status as superior beings? Regarding slavery and Jim Crow in America, several reasons existed, and continue to exist to this day. In P. Djèlí Clark’s raucous novel of vengeance and retribution, an answer is that the Ku Kluxes where monsters.

In this mythology, only a few can penetrate the Ku Kluxes’ guise of human white flesh, though at heart all who don the white sheets, or support the wearers, or simply stand by are monsters. These stalwart few work in bands in various cities throughout the U.S., and a small group of fighters, Gullah women, and socialists in Macon, GA, feature in Ring Shout. The novel effectively blends fantasy, spiritualism, and the supernatural into an explosion of fists, elbows, swords, and gunfire, not to mention the Ring Shout ritual, that will leave readers reaching for the aspirin to stop the ringing its sets off in their minds.

The novel follows the exploits of three intrepid young Black woman, Maryse, Sadie, and Chef as they lead the fight in Macon in 1922. It opens on a set piece of action, the crew doing battle with the Ku Kluxes while the white sheets march in that year’s Fourth of July parade. Maryse emerges as the leader of the group, and she’s the one armed with a supernatural sword packed with the full vengeance of a race enslaved and murdered. She’s also the one who enters a supernatural realm, where she discovers that something big is coming. Turns out the Ku Kluxes plan a giant rally at Stone Mountain, where they will watch The Birth of a Nation. As an aside here, when released in 1915, historians credit the film with the revival of Klan. This reiteration of the Klan occurred in that year at Stone Mountain, and the Klan held a rally there each year Labor Day for around 50 years. Back to the novel. After much intervening action, the Ring Shout culminates in a preternatural battle of good and evil on the mountain.

You might find yourself thinking that imbuing the Ku Kluxes with supernatural possession somehow excuses the actions of ordinary humans; that is, something para human drives their actions. However, Clark cleverly turns this so that hate already possesses regular Klan, and it’s this hate that the supernatural puppet masters feed off of, and that allow for the turning of hate filled monsters into actual monsters. In other words, hated robs you of your humanity. So true.

An all around enjoyable excursion into horror and fantasy and one some not usually readers of the genre might also enjoy. Also, if you watched and enjoyed HBO’s Lovecraft County or reimagined Watchmen, you may be an audience for Ring Shout.

For Claude McKay: "If we must die let it not be like hogs."
And for Lulu Wilson's Maw: "My maw is in her cabin with a week-old baby and one night twelve Ku Kluxes done come to the place. They come in by ones and she whopped 'em one at a time."
