Ally Wilkes recommends
Black Tide (2022)
KC Jones
"Black Tide is cinematic, fast-paced, pedal-to-the-metal storytelling: I found myself gasping!"
Glitterati (2022)
Oliver K Langmead
"Glitterati promises to be your new obsession... a world of fashion, backstabbing, baubles, and ice cream, in which compulsive, light-as-air storytelling hints and teases at the seriously dark dystopia behind it all. I absolutely loved this book."
Never the Wind (2022)
Francesco Dimitri
"Never the Wind is a tender and magical take on all the potential - and horrors - of adolescence. Dimitri's writing is full of wonder at the natural world, beautifully mediated through Luca's heart-rending personal circumstances, and a narrative voice full of pathos and wisdom. An utterly fresh take on the coming-of-age tale, with something deliciously awful and folkloric - in the darkest possible way - about the story's triumphant climax."
The Butcher (2022)
Laura Kat Young
"Readers will be swept away by the fresh take on dystopia found in this intelligent, immersive horror novel drawing on both The Lottery and The Hunger Games. In a poverty-ridden mountain town ruled by unfeeling overlords and their monstrous code of punishment and retribution, Lady Mae will - one day - take on her mother's role as the Butcher, delivering bloody eye-for-an-eye 'justice' to a resentful population. Her coming-of-age is brutal, and Laura Kat Young is unafraid to ask tough and necessary questions about corporal punishment, shared guilt, mob mentality, and who is served when the disadvantaged are pitted against each other."
Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke And Other Misfortunes (2022)
Eric LaRocca
"Eric LaRocca is, without doubt, one of the most exciting contemporary voices in queer horror. Pulling absolutely zero punches, his stories will leave you disturbed, and the viral sensation THGWSWLS is no exception: a visceral tale of obsession and depravity which holds a mirror up to our very darkest impulses. Paired in this edition with two fresh tales of grief and self-destruction, it might be the perfect "introduction" to LaRocca's brand of messy, dark horror... but reader beware: an encounter with these pages will leave you indelibly marked."
