Looking at the cover of The Incorruptibles by John Hornor Jacobs you d be forgiven for thinking that it was a western The simple but striking image of a steamboat certainly suggests that the story will follow a very specific direction In what I can only apologise for being a slightly confounding statement you would be both right and wrong for thinking along those lines There is little denying that the latest from Jacobs proudly wears its Western roots on its sleeve but there is also far to it than that It uickly becomes evident after only a handful of pages that this novel is a veritable mash up of genres each vying for the reader s attention in a wonderfully complex but entertaining taleThis is a deceptive book At first glance it doesn t appear to be that big but there is actually a heck of a lot going on here I m not uite sure how he has pulled it off but Mr Hornor Jacobs has written what feels like the literary euivalent of the TARDIS once you open the book you ll realise that it is much much bigger on the inside Let s see if I can explain Try to imagine a world where an imperial force not massively dissimilar to the Roman Empire let s call them Rumans for the sake of argument is rubbing shoulders with men who could best be viewed as cowboys Also along for the ride are half men known as dvergar dwarves and savage tribal warriors called vaettirwho could be seen as a nod to both native American Indians and elves Elsewhere there are also demons imps and a host of other potential enemies including a race of humans that sounds suspiciously like the Japanese Shogunate Told you there was a lot going on didn t IAmidst all these various groups we find the slightly mis matched pairing of Fisk and Shoe The former is a taciturn pistolero with an enigmatic past your typical western gunslinger type The latter is a long lived half blood dvergar caught between the two different races of his birth They are both just trying to survive and do what needs doing to get their jobs done but it seems that they are beset on all sides Of the two Shoe is certainly personable ironic as he is only half human but both bring their own uniue abilities to the mix What Fisk lacks in communications skills he than makes up for in action I was pleased to discover later in the novel that some of Fisk s murky past does in fact get explained I m not a huge fan of characters remaining enigmatic for the entirety of a whole book I do suspect however that there are still some things that have not yet been revealed about them bothMost of action takes place in and around the aforementioned steamboat The Cornelian while it travels along the Big Rill a river in the middle of nowhere Jacobs is a sneaky old so and so Even though the plot occurs miles from anything resembling civilization he still manages to inject a whole host of tantalizing hints and tidbits regarding his world building My personal favourite being the idea that Ruman technology has evolved and is driven by the presence of demonic forces that are bound into servitude by engineers It s a nicely skewed vision of the traditional take on a wizard Hellfire bullets are also a very cool conceptIn a bold move the writing doesn t shy away from what some would consider controversial subjects Attitudes towards race are tackled head on and play an important part in almost every interaction The Rumans consider themselves superior to everyone so non Rumans harbour an ill hidden resentment toward them On top of that the human s attitudes towards non humans the dvergar and the vaettir in particular is also distinctly superior There is also an insightful exploration of how the different genders are treated and viewed out in the frontier lands One thread of the narrative follows a character called Livia Cornelius and tackles some of these issues specifically The further she moves away from the rules imposed by society and the controlling heart of the Ruman Empire the you see her real personality emergeAs I mentioned before The Incorruptibles isn t just a Western and it isn t just a fantasy novel either There are even a handful of moments where the plot gets close to being full blown bloody horror Just wait until you meet the Crimson Man Now don t panic I know what you re thinking you re concerned this is might just an excuse for genre bingo Don t worry it s not Jacobs know exactly what he is doing where the story is going and he blends all these seemingly disparate elements together with real skillI like fantasy a great deal but what I love is when an author takes traditional fantasy tropes picks them apart and then rebuilds them redefining them as they go I want to read fantasy fiction that messes with my preconceived notions and throws me the odd curve ball or two With The Incorruptibles it feels like John Hornor Jacobs has done just that I can only hope that there will be further books set in this world as it strikes me there is much left still to explore Hopefully GooseberryThe Incorruptibles is published by Gollancz and is available now This is definitely one of my favourite reads so far in 2014No I m not telling you why Go and read the book and you ll find out Nope I m not explaining this one either
