Meg Elison recommends
The Library Of The Unwritten (2019)
(Hell's Library, book 1)
A J Hackwith
"The Library of the Unwritten is a tiered dark chocolate cake of a book. The read is rich and robust, the prose has layers upon layers, and the characters melt like ganache upon the tongue."
All That's Bright and Gone (2019)
Eliza Nellums
"Triumphant . . . A gorgeously intimate work of art. Nellums has a grip like Virgil, and you won't want to let go."
Finna (2020)
(LitenVerse, book 1)
Nino Cipri
"Minimum wage and maximum weird."
Trashlands (2021)
Alison Stine
"A triumph. Trashlands is that rare piece of cli-fi that reminds us that the apocalypse will not be evenly distributed. Poor people on the edges of the world where the water will rise strive here in Stine's prescient imagination: harvesting plastic, doing sex work, tasting the future that should have been in the last few cans of Coke. This book is as biting and sweet and as dark as that bubbling old-world treat.... It's about time someone sang us the song of trailer parks and strip joints of the post-apocalyptic South, and Stine has the right voice to do it.... Readers who want more like Atwood's The Year of the Flood or Valente's The Future is Blue will be lucky to wash up on Trashland's littered shores."
Manhunt (2022)
Gretchen Felker-Martin
"Manhunt is a razor-sharp novel, and Felker-Martin is here to raise the bar for post-apocalyptic fiction. Prepare to take a bite that will stain your jaws red."
