Erica Waters recommends
My Throat an Open Grave (2024)
Tori Bovalino
"I sat down to read a few pages, and before I knew it, I was ten chapters in. Propulsive, original, and deeply compelling, My Throat An Open Grave whisked me straight into the dark and mysterious realm of the Lord of the Wood, where nothing was quite what I expected. A fascinating blend of folk horror and fairytale, just as I've come to expect from the talented Bovalino."
A Place for Vanishing (2024)
Ann Fraistat
"As a seasoned fan of the haunted house genre, I thought I knew what I was in for when I started this book, but Fraistat surprised me at every turn. Every bug-riddled, mask-filled page of A Place for Vanishing is vivid, original, and absolutely compelling."
Unholy Terrors (2023)
Lyndall Clipstone
"Bloody and lovely at once, Unholy Terrors is a moody meditation on desire and duty, fate and free will, the bonds we are born to and the ones we choose for ourselves."
