Kirsty Logan recommends
Beloved Poison (2016)
(Jem Flockhart, book 1)
E S Thomson
"ES Thompson's Jem Flockhart books are the best I've read in years. Jem is just my kind of heroine: scarred, smart, complex, and unapologetically queer."
The Lost Queen (2018)
(Lost Queen, book 1)
Signe Pike
"Outlander meets Camelot – but with the focus firmly on the lives and loves of women. A sweeping, magical tale of a rarely-told part of Scotland's history."
Oligarchy (2019)
Scarlett Thomas
"An intricate black jewel of a novel. Weeks later I'm still thinking about it."
You Let Me In (2020)
Camilla Bruce
"A glorious, pitch-black fairytale of a book."
Harrow Lake (2020)
Kat Ellis
"Scream meets The Babadook in small-town USA. This book made my retro-horror-loving heart sing."
The Dangers of Smoking in Bed (2021)
Mariana Enríquez
"Rotting little ghosts, heartbeat fetishes, curses and witches and meat: Each of these stories is a luscious, bewitching nightmare. Each one builds up a steady, thrilling dread—until the final lines, when the true horror is revealed. I adore this book."
Deep Wheel Orcadia (2021)
Harry Josephine Giles
"I can't remember the last time I was this beguiled, this engrossed and this inspired by a book. It's like nothing else I've ever read. It was a joy to feel so entranced by the possibilities and complexities of each and every word. Harry Josephine Giles is a true original and a vital voice - don't miss this."
Parallel Hells (2022)
Leon Craig
"Trust me: you want to read this. It's the queer horror book of your dreams."
Our Wives Under the Sea (2022)
Julia Armfield
"Reading this book is like diving into the deepest depths of the ocean and finding beautiful and disturbing wonders."
The Seawomen (2022)
Chloe Timms
"An unsettling and lushly-written reimagining of witch trials, exploring fertility, control and how what we believe can save us - or destroy us. The Handmaid's Tale meets The Shape of Water."
