Grady Hendrix recommends
Ten Dead Comedians (2017)
Fred Van Lente
"Fred Van Lente delivers an Agatha Christie twisty mystery filled with all the cruel, horrible, and violent deaths that only stand-up comedians truly deserve."
Good Neighbours (2021)
Sarah Langan
"Where the hell has Sarah Langan been? Because she suddenly pops up again after being MIA for eleven years and shotguns everyone in the face with an all-American horror novel about friendships—deep, shallow, toxic, true—that's unpredictable enough to make every page-turn stomach-crampingly stressful."
Something More Than Night (2021)
Kim Newman
"Newman's noir teams Boris Karloff with Raymond Chandler to solve gothic crimes in a 1930s Hollywood full of man-made monsters, dodgy movie studios, and ice-cold gimlets. Written in a James Ellroy rat-a-tat it's the perfect book for a summer afternoon by the pool with plenty of cocktails. If more mysteries were written like this, I’d read more mysteries."
Hidden Pictures (2022)
Jason Rekulak
"Hidden Pictures isn't a ghost story, it's a scalpel that slices into our smug sense of self-satisfaction so deeply it hits bone. A perfect summer thriller complete with vengeful spirits, class warfare, and it even has pictures. What more could you want?"
Hokuloa Road (2022)
Elizabeth Hand
"Set in a Hawaii so vividly imagined I'm still shaking sand out of my shoes, Elizabeth Hand's perfectly crafted ghost story is exactly the comfort-destroying read you need on a long, lonely night."
The Pallbearers' Club (2022)
Paul Tremblay
"The most beautiful and heartbreaking funeral I've been to in a long time, THE PALLBEARERS CLUB is melancholy, funny, and very cruel, but you won't regret carrying this coffin."
Ghost Eaters (2022)
Clay McLeod Chapman
"Clay McLeod Chapman's guided tour of a shroom-and-gloom ghost world, where everyone is addicted to death, reads like a scared straight program that horrifies you into choosing life."
White Horse (2022)
Erika T Wurth
"Family ties are made from rusty barbed wire in White Horse, a book that feels as welcome as a dark bar on a hot afternoon, and whose story burns like a shot of rotgut whiskey."
