Jeffrey Ford recommends

The Briar Book of the Dead (2024)
A G Slatter
"Angela Slatter's The Briar Book of the Dead will, with its wonderfully clear yet enchanted prose, cast a spell on readers."
thumb
Wild Spaces (2023)
S L Coney
"A coming-of-age story, but the change in store for the boy is wonderfully unpredictable and so originally weird. Pacing is key to this piece, and the author is brilliant at it."
thumb
The Splendid City (2022)
Karen Heuler
"Karen Heuler's The Splendid City is a wonderful fabulation, both humorous and contemplative, about the desperate state of US politics and society. In this world without a moral center, Eleanor, a witch, and her black cat familiar, Stan, who walks on two legs and packs a gun, much like Behemoth from Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, are called to solve a mystery. The writing is engaging and smooth, with excellent banter, as the communal power of women works to find a purpose in a crazy world."
