Leading off the book is the Nebula Award-winning title story, in which a poor Honduran hunter is coerced into tracking the forbidden "Black Jaguar of Barrio Carolina. Futuristic war, menacing wind spirits, parallel worlds, a six-thousand-foot dragon: this collection proves that Shepard is neither genre fantasist not strict realist, but one of the most intriguing writers we have today.

Fourteen of Lucius Shepard's most memorable stories are combined with a previously unanthologized novella, Radiant Green Star, to form a stunning sci-fi collection. In the Nebula Award–winning title story, a poor Honduran hunter is coerced into tracking the forbidden black jaguar of Barrio Carolina.

Great!

An outstanding collection. Not an ordinary story to be found in this bunch.
In fact, so good, it almost average 4, coming in at 3.95, just a mere half a point shy which reading another story another day it quite possibly could get.

Anyway, great stuff. A mixture of SF and fantasy/horror, lots of which is set in locations most people won't get to, and is definitely part of the appeal of Shepard stories, from the hard-edge grim soldiering of R&R to the seacoast supernatural How the Wind Spoke at Madaket.

The Jaguar Hunter is still the best introduction to the frustratingly inconsistent work of Lucius Shephard. Shephard is at his best in short stories and some of those in this collection show a real mastery of the form, telling often quite simple moral tales in settings packed dense with strange underpinning imagery and meaning.
The collection divides into several different overlapping types: traveller's tales, New England horror, Latin American magic realism, those dealing with the ongoing shadow cast by Nazism, fantasy etc. It is really a matter of taste which you prefer: my own favourites are the title story, which tingles with atmosphere and magical possibility; the two treatments of the legacy of the Third Reich - the terrifying 'Mengele', and the bizarre, menacing 'A Spanish Lesson'; and the magnificent 'R&R'. I like the New England-set tales less, but even they far outdo Stephen King.
Shephard's writing has never been better than is these early stories (and also in the underrated novel 'Life During Wartime'); lush but never bloated and often ironic but always moral. I just wish he would find his form again and stop writing yet more vampire novels!

This book is introspective without being maudlin, and I find
myself struggling for a better word than "wistful", but alas,
no cross-referenced OED at my fingertips.
Therefore: I can promise you this, there's not a happy ending in the book, and I found myself at first very disappointed in this growing trend. At some point in the third short story, I realized that he would supply no easy answers, and the converse might prove true: nothing but hard questions from here on.
Stories wrapped up neatly, even with the bad guy winning, aren't a possibility for Shepard. Life is like that sometimes, and the choices that lead you to a place you wish you hadn't visited. But, since you're there, take in the scenery and try to pass on a warning to others...
This is my first formal introduction to Lucius Shepard; it won't be my last meeting with his work, for sure.

Lucius Shepard presents us with a wonderful collection of diverse short stories, featuring believable characters in exotic locales. The author's writing style is colorful and poetic,drawing the reader into the story. As is often true with the works of great authors, several of the stories leave their lurking remnants in the mind of the reader, for processing on a deeper level over time. If you are a fan of verse and fiction as well as short stories, you should not pass up this delightful box of chocolates !!

This was Lucius Shepard's first successful collection, and is still one of the best short story collections I own. The characters are always personal, human or not, often haunted by experience they don't understand. The title story is unabashedly romantic but ferocious in its heart. "The End of Life as We Know It", about a couple who need and get a shakeup, will be recognized by anyone who's ever been in a rut. Several stories take legendary creatures from Latin America and put them into settings that make them completely probable, if not inevitable. Great writing.

This book is a great collection of short stories. Each story has a mythical or magical aspect to it. The stories are all very good, although some are better than others. The entire book is worth reading, as each story is very entertaining. You're left thinking about each story as you finish them.
