Lavie Tidhar recommends
I Am Providence (2016)
Nick Mamatas
"Dark and hilarious. . .I am Providence is that murder-mystery-in-a-writers-convention you didn't even know you wanted, but (like the human skin-bound book which propels the plot) you really must buy."
Under the Pendulum Sun (2017)
(Fae , book 1)
Jeannette Ng
"An enchanting literary debut - I couldn't put it down!"
Untamed Shore (2020)
Silvia Moreno-Garcia
"A sense of inevitable dread builds from seemingly innocuous events in this masterful crime debut from Silvia Moreno-Garcia. The period detail is fantastic, the Mexican setting vibrant and fresh, and the noir is as murky as seawater after a shark feeding frenzy. I loved it!"
The Album of Dr. Moreau (2021)
Daryl Gregory
"Daryl Gregory is terrific, and The Album of Dr Moreau continues his high-roller, high-stakes streak of awesome. I laughed on page one, was horrified by page thirteen, and was delighted till the very end."
Notes from the Burning Age (2021)
Claire North
"An impassioned, urgent and compelling new work that burns as bright as the fires of our own burning age. This is not to be missed."
