Cover for The Incorruptibles by John Hornor Jacobs. A black cover with the drawing in white, looking like a wood-cut. A campfire in the foreground, a steamboat on a river in the middleground, and tall mountains with dragons flying over them in the background.SFX Magazine: Tonally The Incorruptibles delivers a hearty scoop of Abercrombie-style grimdarkness, although layered with more magic and religion. The prose is extraordinary rich. But that never detracts from what is, ultimately, a ripping yarn. Whether you file it under Western or fantasy, The Incorruptibles is a rare thing: a clever story and an action-packed one.
