Clay McLeod Chapman recommends
Nestlings (2023)
Nat Cassidy
"Couldn't put it down."
A Light Most Hateful (2023)
Hailey Piper
"What has sprouted out from Hailey Piper's head is a fully-formed goddess of a novel, equal parts terrifying, awe-inspiring, and downright worshipful. I'm still scorched by A Light Most Hateful, even after closing its pages, blinded by its brilliance."
Knock Knock, Open Wide (2023)
Neil Sharpson
"Celtic creepypasta Knock Knock, Open Wide is a dark miracle and Neil Sharpson is an infernal bard belched straight out from Hell itself. Your next nightmare has just arrived."
Edenville (2023)
Sam Rebelein
"Sam Rebelein's Edenville is pure cosmic gonzo...This jaw-dropping -- apologies, jaw-ripping -- novel earns its place amongst contemporary classics The Library at Mount Char and The Book of Accidents. You won't read anything quite like it... not in our universe, anyway."
The September House (2023)
Carissa Orlando
"Peel back The Yellow Wallpaper, check out of The Overlook, and say farewell to Hill House... There's a new haunted house on the market and Carissa Orlando is the realtor of our nightmares. You'll never want to leave once you start reading."
Schrader's Chord (2023)
Scott Leeds
"Scott Leeds truly has an ear for fear. Any reader who cracks this cursed book open is doomed to devour it in one sitting like I did. Now I hear ghosts wherever I go."
