Angela Slatter recommends
thumb
The Bureau of Them (2016)
Cate Gardner
"An assured example of the best horror can offer."
thumb
The Beast's Heart (2018)
Leife Shallcross
"Leife Shallcross weaves her words like a fairytale enchantment. The Beast's Heart is like nothing you've read. Welcome to a glorious darkness."
thumb
The Burning House (2018)
Neil Spring
"Masterfully mixing history with a damned fine ghost story, The Lost Village contains echoes of James Herbert at his spectral best. Neil Spring has produced another atmospheric read, and his Sarah Grey is a narrator who's hard to forget."
thumb
Strange Ink (2018)
(Harry Hendrick, book 1)
Gary Kemble
"With an intense and immediate sense of place, a cracking pace, and a great everyman hero, Gary Kemble's debut novel Strange Ink is by turns thrilling and haunting, and will keep readers glued to the page."
thumb
Unholy Land (2018)
Lavie Tidhar
"Extraordinary, confronting, intriguing. Unholy Land is a dream of a home that’s never existed, but is no less real for that: a dream that smells like blood and gunpowder. It’s precisely what we’ve come to expect of Tidhar, a writer who just keeps getting better."
thumb
Snow White Learns Witchcraft (2019)
Theodora Goss
"In Snow White Learns Witchcraft, Theodora Goss weaves words that look disturbingly like snow and feathers into new stories that are familiar but uniquely remade. A Goss heroine breathes life into silent castles, imprints her own image in darkling mirrors, and plucks enchanted apples from the hands of peddlers; she is a bear’s bride, a newly minted queen, a thunderstorm of a woman and so much more. Dr. Goss cements her position as one of our foremost re-interpreters of fairy tales."
