Angela Slatter recommends
The Haunting of Velkwood (2024)
Gwendolyn Kiste
"Heartbreaking and hopeful. A perfect modern ghost story."
After the Forest (2023)
Kell Woods
"With one foot in history, the other in folklore, After the Forest is a love song to fairy tales. Replete with secrets, magic, witches and wolves, bears and whispering books, Greta's world is one where enchantment can become a curse on the turn of a tongue. At once sweet as gingerbread and bitterly dark as heart's blood, After the Forest is reminiscent of Juliet Marillier at her finest."
Linghun (2023)
Ai Jiang
"Ai Jiang's debut novella Linghun packs an absolute punch. A reflection on grief, the dangers of not letting go, on the terrible price of love-and why we're so willing to pay for it. Wonderful, strange, and heartbreaking. Highly recommended."
