Michael Moorcock recommends

Tiny Arrows (2022)
Rhys Hughes
"Rhys Hughes seems almost the sum of our planet's literature. He toys with convention. He makes the metaphysical political, the personal incredible and the comic hints at subtle pain. Few living fictioneers approach this chef's sardonic confections, certainly not in English."
thumb
Kagen the Damned (2022)
(Kagen the Damned, book 1)
Jonathan Maberry
"Mr. Maberry's first venture into Sword and Sorcery fiction employs powerful imagery to tell a classic tale of revenge and blood which fans of Howard, Moore and Wagner will relish! As his own story grows deeper and more complex, Kagen of Argentium discovers the bizarre answers to more than one mystery. He fights with magnificent skill and fury to restore an empire, unearth the secrets of unimaginably ancient peoples and discover the horrifying truth behind his family's betrayal. Maberry gradually expands his story until it flows beyond the borders of his chosen genre to create something rich and original. If you hunger for more George Martin, this novel will thoroughly satisfy you. And if you love Lovecraft, you're in for something very special!"

Jewish Noir 2 (2022)
(Jewish Noir, book 2)
Chantelle Aimee Osman and Kenneth Wishnia
"A little angst, some healthy cynicism, a touch of guilt, a few wisecracks and some very good stories. What else were you expecting?"
