Vajra Chandrasekera recommends
No One Will Come Back For Us (2023)
Premee Mohamed
"No One Will Come Back for Us does an incredible job showcasing Premee Mohamed's short fiction, vivid anatomical studies of anguished human hearts opened up so wide and vulnerable in worlds far too big, far too broken, too far gone. Stories of what people will do for each other, do to each other, out of love and pride and cruelty. This is contemporary cross-genre horror at its finest, having stolen organs from fantasy and science fiction alike to incorporate them, pulsating and alive, into its own body. It's alive, it's behind you, and it needs your eyeballs. Give them immediately."
