Anthologies edited
Gemma Amor recommends
The Redemption of Morgan Bright (2024)
Chris Panatier
"The Redemption of Morgan Bright is a dizzying mix of epistolary recollections, sinister encounters and dark, velvety prose laid sumptuously upon the platter of Hollyhock Asylum. Important themes are tackled with Panatier's usual urgency and intelligence. A sharp thorn of a book."
A Light Most Hateful (2023)
Hailey Piper
"Piper's prose will leave you breathless in this stormy, jagged little pill of a novel about love and hate and acceptance in a world gone mad. A furiously compelling and propulsive read."
Everything the Darkness Eats (2023)
Eric LaRocca
"A colossal feat of imagination and moments of pure magic delivered with style and tenderness in a way that gives Gaiman a run for his money."
