Tim Major recommends
Eden (2020)
Tim Lebbon
"Eden is visceral, cinematic and utterly wild, with a disorienting tone like Tarkovsky’s Stalker but with a far higher body count. It’s another terrifying yet irresistible novel from the effortlessly talented Tim Lebbon."
The Golden Key (2020)
Marian Womack
"With hints of the brooding Gothic of Rawblood and Rebecca, this wonderfully creepy historical novel makes it absolutely clear that Marian Womack is a rising star."
Alpha Omega (2020)
Nicholas Bowling
"A relentlessly entertaining ride – memorably oddball characters, spot-on satire and smart, deadpan humour. I read it in a flurry."
Dark Lullaby (2021)
Polly Ho-Yen
"Dark Lullaby is hard-hitting, mournful and deeply affecting, reading like the offspring of Never Let Me Go and 1984, and it addresses universal fears about early parenthood without providing easy answers. I raced through it and when I’d finished, it made me hug my own children tight."
The Art of Space Travel and Other Stories (2021)
Nina Allan
"I'm in awe of Nina Allan's storytelling. Each richly detailed tale hints at a far wider world, and many contain stories with stories, realities within realities, warping genre boundaries yet retaining a focus on entirely believable characters and, often, the contemplation of loss. Put simply, these are some of the best modern short stories I've read."
