Rio Youers recommends
Burn the Negative (2023)
Josh Winning
"Burn the Negative knocked me sideways. It is both fresh and familiar - a dark, satirical, and unflinching observation of the movie industry and childhood celebrity, with a monster that will make even your nightmares wake up screaming."
All the White Spaces (2022)
Ally Wilkes
"ALL THE WHITE SPACES is a masterpiece. A journey of discovery that left me breathless and emotional for all the right reasons. With this powerful debut, Ally Wilkes has not arrived quietly on the horror scene; she has scaled a towering iceberg and roared."
Something More Than Night (2021)
Kim Newman
"An homage to a golden era of storytelling, with the chemistry between Karloff and Chandler rivalling any Hollywood double act. Intelligent, atmospheric, written with passion and wit, Something More Than Night is a must for fans of classic monsters and mysteries. A pure joy to read."
Come With Me (2021)
Ronald Malfi
"An exploration into grief, and into the dark secrets within a seemingly perfect marriage. Part mystery, part ghost story, Come with Me chimes with rare beauty and page-turning brilliance. I surrendered to it completely."
Red Hands (2020)
(Ben Walker, book 3)
Christopher Golden
"From page one, Red Hands grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. The pacing is perfect. The action is chaotic, vivid, and incredibly satisfying. Full of intrigue, governmental scheming, and biological terror, this is one dark thriller I’ll be talking about - and recommending - for years to come."
Eden (2020)
Tim Lebbon
"With Eden, Tim Lebbon is at the top of his game. Action-packed, thought-provoking, terrifying, this is the eco horror novel by which all others will be judged."
