John Linwood Grant recommends
The Occultists (2020)
Polly Schattel
"An Edwardian tapestry of ceaseless occult war and worldwide political struggle … Schattel surprises by skillfully reanimating old tropes as she explores dreadful personal loss, unexpected betrayal, and dogged persistence. With its memorable monstrosities—both human and other—its conflicted protagonist, and a plot full of twists, The Occultists is a fascinating tale of both the esoteric and the mundane."
The Ghost Finders (2021)
Adam McOmber
"More than the traditional occult detective fare, this intricate novel manages to intertwine period fascination with spiritualism/occultism and the question of those greater cosmic forces which might be lurking in the wings. This is a skilful blend of interesting characters, conflicting loyalties and betrayals which, with a wry-and purposeful-nod to Hope Hodgson's Carnacki the Ghost Finder, also questions the whole endeavour of investigating the supernatural. Clever and intriguing."
