Oh gosh! <3 My first question on Goodreads and such a lovely one!

Yes, definitely. For now, I'm focused on penny dreadful-style adventures for John Persons, but there'll definitely be more of him to find. In fact, the second Persons Non Grata novella should be out sometime next November from Tor.com! (less)

Oh, gosh. <3 How flattering. Thank you for coming to say hello! (Wouldn't be Jonathan L. Howard, would it? *curious look*)

I'd say Hammers on Bone is probably your best bet, especially if you enjoy weird genre mash-ups. Although if you're hankering for more comedy + horror, I'd wait a tad longer to pick up Food of the Gods! (less)

Read this one for the love of language. Read this because you love language. Read this because it is a spill of poetry: a little choppy, a little staccato, all like the rattle of the train. Read it because it is a work of spontaneous poetry.

This is a sly book, in that its central mystery isn't all that difficult to unravel, but you also know precisely why it isn't hard to untangle: the book is winking at you, a grin on its lips, a teasing look in its eyes. In many ways, it feels like a ...more

I am so very, very late to the party but I finally read THE EMPRESS OF SALT AND FORTUNE. It is a quiet, perfect beauty, steeped in the terrible grace of women who will not be silenced but must wait until they can claim their due. It is the clenched-j ...more

A strange, beautiful book filled with the grief of a life that turned out not quite as expected. It's been years since I've read it, but it resonates in some part of me. I think of it every now and then, in dark flashes, at strange moments. There's a ...more

An astounding read. The prose is baroque and lush, practically festooned with velvet and dripping with magic. It is poetry that isn't afraid of going somewhere abyssal. It is a bathyal joy. My only real gripe with the book is that the ending came too ...more

“One of the most effective tricks in a gumshoe's playbook is the act of silence. Wait. Let the other guy pull the trigger first. It costs you nothing, and it gets you everything.”
Cassandra Khaw, Hammers on Bone

“The world is made up of rituals. From the way you brush your teeth to how you show obeisance during religious ceremonies, it’s an endless list of interlocking behaviours seared into your unconscious self, charms against the madness of reality.”
Cassandra Khaw, Food of the Gods

“Blues is about wanting and not having, about putting that need into someone else's hands for a little while so you can pause and breathe.”
