Daniel Kraus recommends
Womb City (2024)
Tlotlo Tsamaase
"A fierce, furious, and fearless debut that has its finger on the pulse - no, the gushing wound - of our world's most invasive cruelties."
The House of Last Resort (2024)
Christopher Golden
"An absolute ripper of a fire-and-brimstone, capital-H Horror novel. I tore through it so fast my fingertips bled. Which probably summoned the book's demons."
The Centre (2023)
Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi
"The most fascinating debut I've read in years - enigmatic, biting, absurd, and right when you think you've got it figured out, utterly horrifying."
