Tananarive Due recommends
Ghostroots (2024)
'Pemi Aguda
"Ghostroots is a triumph. 'Pemi Aguda's strong storytelling skills give readers the gift of realistic characters and darkly imaginative stories that creep under your skin and stay buried there. . . . 'Pemi Aguda is now among my favorite authors."
The Devil Takes You Home (2022)
Gabino Iglesias
"The Devil Takes You Home is a wild ride through grief, faith, loss and monstrosity. Gabino Iglesias's sharp prose and visceral, haunting vision have birthed a riveting novel no reader will soon forget. Fresh and genuinely scary."
Creatures of Passage (2021)
Morowa Yejidé
"In this beautifully written and gloriously conceived novel, Morowa Yejidé reveals her mastery yet again. This book is both contemporary and ancient, frightening and stirring, playful and wise, an unforgettable blurring of reality and genres from its haunted Plymouth automobile to the mysteries in the fog in this alternate America and hidden Washington, DC. With its lyricism and bold imagination, Creatures of Passage is unlike anything you've ever read."
