Jeff VanderMeer recommends
Trujillo (2004)
Lucius Shepard
"Lucius Shepard has been among the most respected and unclassifiable of American fiction writers. His prodigious output... may be unmatched for its sheer range and quality."
Trial of Flowers (2006)
(City Imperishable, book 1)
Jay Lake
"Modern decadence with an intent both sinister and sublime, Trial of Flowers is a strange and often beautiful novel. Jay Lake continues to expand the limits of his idiosyncratic talent."
The Reef (2008)
Mark Charan Newton
"A promising new writer whose prose is dynamic and whose imagination is often startling."
Gears of the City (2008)
Felix Gilman

Starve Better (2011)
Nick Mamatas
"Mamatas offers up a no-nonsense guide that should be required reading for all writers. Prepare to have some illusions shattered, because you need them shattered."
The Euonymist (2011)
Neil Williamson
"A rich and rewarding read from a stylish new talent."
Sterling City (2013)
Stephen Graham Jones
"Sterling City is mesmerizing, horrifying, strange, and you can’t put it down. It has a kind of stark poetry in the concision and clarity of its prose. Another great example of why you should be reading Stephen Graham Jones."
The Warren (2016)
Brian Evenson
"A creepy, mind-bending quest of identity and mystery, told with a master's skill. No one explores inner Landscapes quite like Brian Evenson."
The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington (2017)
Leonora Carrington
"This definitive collection of Carrington's fiction is a treasure and a gift to the world. A stunning achievement."
Amatka (2017)
Karin Tidbeck
"Karin Tidbeck’s Amatka is a stunning, truly original exploration of the mysteries of reality and what it means to be human. It’s brutally honest and uncompromising in its vision - a brilliant short story writer has been revealed as an even more brilliant novelist. One of my favorite reads of the past few years, an instant classic."
The Five Daughters of the Moon (2017)
(Waning Moon Duology, book 1)
Leena Likitalo
"By turns rambunctious, lively, strange, and at times melancholy in the best ways, Leena Likitalo's wonderful novel marks the debut of a major new talent."
The Rift (2017)
Nina Allan
"Unique and fascinating."
