James Lovegrove recommends
thumb
Sherlock Holmes and Dorian Gray (2024)
(Classified Dossier)
Christian Klaver
"An exuberent reverent mashup."
thumb
You Let Me In (2020)
Camilla Bruce
"Lascivious and bloody."
thumb
Borne (2017)
(Borne, book 1)
Jeff VanderMeer
"As Borne grows and evolves, so develops a weird family dynamic in a novel that is as much of a fascinating hybrid as its title character, both an enthralling fantasy adventure and a bleak eco-dystopic admonition."
