Rio Youers recommends
thumb
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."
thumb
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."
thumb
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."
