E K Johnston's picture

E K Johnston



E.K. Johnston is a forensic archaeologist by training, a bookseller and author by trade, and a grammarian by nature.

She spends a great deal of time on the internet, because it is less expensive than going to Scotland.

She can probably tell you, to the instant, when she fell in love with any particular song, but don't ask her, because then it will be stuck in both of your heads.

E K Johnston recommends

The Arsonist (2017)
Stephanie Oakes
"Layers of narrative, lies, and family legacy make for a compelling, exquisitely crafted story."
thumb
Beasts Made of Night (2017)
Tochi Onyebuchi
"Tochi Onyebuchi has built a world as dark as it is bright, and filled it with character and consequence. Taj's city is deep, vibrant, and terrifying. I don't think I'd survive there, but I really need to know what happens next."

The Queens of Innis Lear (2018)
Tessa Gratton
"Messy, beautiful, and dark, darker than Shakespeare could have dreamed."
thumb
Hullmetal Girls (2018)
Emily Skrutskie
"Hullmetal Girls has everything I love in a space opera: deep faith, high stakes, endless questions about humanity, and a cast that shows the best (and less-best) of what we might become."

Seafire (2018)
(Seafire Trilogy, book 1)
Natalie C Parker
"Mastering high seas, high stakes, and high emotions, Natalie Parker gives us a whole host of girls who get the job done and kicks off an adventure to remember."
