Sarah Gailey recommends
The Uploaded (2017)
"Steinmetz has crafted a brilliant, original world in this all-too-possible story of life, death, and legacy. The Uploaded is a wild ride from start to finish, and asks the reader to examine what exactly it is that they are leaving behind - and what they're headed toward."
The Hollow Girl (2017)
"The Hollow Girl is required reading: a tour de force of female power, craft, and emotion."
Sawkill Girls (2018)
"Reader, hang on for dear life. Sawkill Girls is a wild, gorgeous, and rich coming-of-age story about complicity, female camaraderie, and power."
Miranda in Milan (2019)
"With gorgeous prose and an unflinching understanding of the characters she's been given, Duckett has crafted a deeply satisfying finish to the story Shakespeare started telling."
The Luminous Dead (2019)
"A harrowing, merciless descent into the human psyche. Starling's prose is breathtakingly cinematic and left me without a molecule of spare oxygen. This book will catch you by the ankles and drag you backwards into a terrifying and inescapable reality. Read this one with all the lights on."
The Return (2020)
"The Return is a sharp, refreshing book about the mortifying ordeal of being known. This is a book that understands how terrifying a lasting friendship can truly be; Harrison brilliantly highlights the way friendships can tether a person to their worst memories, their worst selves, and their worst nightmares."
You Let Me In (2020)
"You Let Me In is a relentless, heartbreaking exploration of isolation, grooming, and the cycles of abuse that pursue the vulnerable. The Pepper Man is terrifying on levels that will stay with you long after you've put the book down, crawled into bed, closed your eyes, and told yourself that everything is going to be okay."
The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires (2020)
"Grady Hendrix has cemented his place as a literary luminary with The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires. Hendrix has taken his genuine affection for housewives and their work, and folded it seamlessly into a horrifying story of social decay and community betrayal. Cancel your plans and lock your doors -- you won't be able to stop reading this one until the very end."
Mexican Gothic (2020)
"A gorgeous piece of work . . . Absolutely terrifying, and it has stayed with me in a powerful way."
The Bright Lands (2020)
"I am stunnedI haven't been able to step away from this book since I started it. An earnest, thoughtful exploration of the monstrosity inherent in our American myths surrounding masculinity and sexuality, The Bright Lands is a kind of horror I've never seen before. Fram's done something exquisite here."
Savage Legion (2020)
(Savage Rebellion, book 1)
"Savage Legion is the epic fantasy the genre has been waiting for!"
Last Night at the Telegraph Club (2021)
"Lo has really outdone herself here. I don't think I can overstate how refreshing it is to read queer historical fiction that is so complex, nuanced, and tender. It's my opinion that this book will quickly become a new touchstone of the genre of queer literature. What an accomplishment."
