Caitlin Starling recommends
A Season of Monstrous Conceptions (2023)
Lina Rather
"An entrancing and transformative queer tale of cosmic horror, unbelonging, and self-definition."
They Drown Our Daughters (2022)
Katrina Monroe
"A haunting, intimately heartbreaking legacy of trauma and horror, soaked in seaspray and endlessly compelling. Once you hear the ocean's song, you won't be able to leave Cape Disappointment behind!"
Bonds of Brass (2020)
(Bloodright Trilogy, book 1)
Emily Skrutskie
"Skrutskie's Bonds of Brass is a high-octane galactic adventure replete with heart, drama, and a keen edge of pain."
You Let Me In (2020)
Camilla Bruce
"You Let Me In is a bewitching, beguiling, and deeply unsettling tale of one woman's strange life. It will ensnare you from page one and keep you riveted until the end."
Salvaged (2019)
Madeleine Roux
"Roux's Salvaged is a tale of creeping horror and daring love, heavy with the weight of loss and trauma. Spooky fungus in space, devastatingly intimate hive minds, terrifying resource management, and shockingly sweet romance combine in this love letter to redemption and recovery (and mushrooms)."
The Library Of The Unwritten (2019)
(Hell's Library, book 1)
A J Hackwith
"A delightful romp through heaven, hell, and everything in between which reveals itself in layers."
Daughters of Forgotten Light (2018)
Sean Grigsby
"Rollicking pulp action around a deep, dark heart brimming with barely-contained rage. The book balances brutal deprivation and violence against moments of pride, joy, and sadness. Even pitted at deadly odds against one another, the women of Daughters of Forgotten Light form powerful relationships that shine against their bleak world. The book never apologizes and never pulls a punch, and neither do its characters."
