Josh Winning recommends
The Strange (2023)
Nathan Ballingrud
"Star Wars meets True Grit in this cinematic tale of a human girl fighting to keep hope alive on a Martian world. Nathan Ballingrud compellingly blends frontier western with rootin-tootin space opera, and the result is epic in scope, thematically rich, and gleefully spooky in places. This is an atmospheric, immersive delight, and so evocative that I kept expecting red sand to trickle out from between the pages."
The Nightmare Man (2023)
J H Markert
"Absolutely devoured The Nightmare Man by James Markert, a masterful, atmospheric horror novel that has delicious/terrifying shades of The Silence of the Lambs and The Exorcist. It's one of my favorite reads of the year."
Glitterati (2022)
Oliver K Langmead
"Fabulous! A sensory powder keg of a book that bursts with wit, poise and oh-so cutting-edge style. Literary but feather-light, this is the most elegant and charming thing you'll read all year. It had me grinning from ear to ear the whole way through."
