Gabino Iglesias recommends
Sweet Thing (2023)
David Swinson
"Sweet Thing is fast, dark, and flat-out wonderful. The dialogue cuts like a scalpel and the action would outpace a greyhound. This thing smells like burnt coffee, cigarette smoke, and the pure, unfiltered authenticity only a retired detective who's seen it all could tattoo on the page. Don't miss it."
The Devil's Promise (2023)
(San Antonio Supernatural Detective Agency, book 2)
Celso Hurtado
"A wonderfully entertaining YA horror novel [that] inhabits the interstitial space between YA stories and full-blown adult literature about horrible things. A great reminder that one of the best things about horror fiction is its ability to twist our guts like a rollercoaster ride and make us ask for more."
Vertical (2023)
Cody Goodfellow
"Prose that moves forward at breakneck speed."
Black River Orchard (2023)
Chuck Wendig
"Dark. Visceral. Creepy. Smart. Deep. So red it's dark brown. Chuck Wendig's Black River Orchard slithers and shines, its dangerous belly full of dark magic and accusations. I've been a fan of Wendig for years, and this is his best novel yet."
Whalefall (2023)
Daniel Kraus
"Unexpectedly emotional and wildly entertaining, Whalefall is the tense revamp of Jonah's tale you didn't know you needed."
Those We Thought We Knew (2023)
David Joy
"Those We Thought We Knew is a screaming wound bleeding fiery poetry. This is a brilliant novel about racism, generational trauma, reckoning with the past, and the way awfulness tends to hide in the places you least expect it. A heartfelt, brutally honest portrait of the heart and roots of the North Carolina mountains that echoes the entire country. Powerful. Timely. Necessary. Read it."
