Lung, Crown, and Star by Xuan Nguyen
Rate this book
Clear rating
Brief and enigmatic; utterly unique. There are moments where I wish the world and characters were more fleshed out and explored in greater depth, especially since I got the distinct sense that there was a lot more to this story in the author's head t ...more

Desmodus by Melanie Tem
Rate this book
Clear rating
More obviously flawed than WILDING (so far my favorite of Melanie Tem's novels), but also more ambitious and bizarre. I enjoyed the xenofiction elements-- Tem's vampires are a separate culture of matriarchal bat-people, a few of whom are just barely ...more

American Morons by Glen Hirshberg
American Morons
by Glen Hirshberg (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
The most effective moments in these horror stories are not the bursts of shocking violence or grotesque imagery, but the quietly hideous ways people betray and torment one another, and the ways in which we are powerless as time, illness, and other fo ...more

Kinship and Kindness by Kara Jorgensen
Rate this book
Clear rating
Romance novels are not really my preferred genre, but this was fun! The sex scenes were well-done, both in terms of being hot and in terms of how Jorgensen approached the body & gender dysphoria of her trans man character Bennett. The characterizatio ...more

Junji Ito's Dissolving Classroom by Junji Ito
Rate this book
Clear rating
It's not my favorite Junji Ito, but this is fun and delightfully disgusting! The last chapter goes completely, 100% off the rails, but in a peculiarly satisfying way. Good combination of real suspense/horror and campy ludicrousness.

Motel of the Mysteries by David Macaulay
Rate this book
Clear rating
In the far future, archaeologists investigate an ancient North American "burial complex" (actually a seedy roadside motel) dating from 1985, when the continent was suddenly buried under tons of debris. The archaeologists have no idea what the items i ...more

Dear Laura by Gemma Amor
Dear Laura
by Gemma Amor (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
The penultimate chapters were tremendous: gripping, eerie, and tragic. This was almost a 3-star (it's well-paced and consistently intriguing yet has some lapses into sentimentality, cliche, and clumsy prose)-- but holy shit, those scenes in the clear ...more

Ghost Days by Asher Elbein
Rate this book
Clear rating
A massively entertaining update on the "wandering hillbilly conjure (wo)man" subgenre of pulp fiction, these stories combine the action, gore, weird creatures, ghosts, and magic of your classics with a more diverse cast & thoughtful, sensitive explor ...more
Corrupted Vessels by Briar Ripley Page
"A beautiful, wrenching study of a few deeply unwell queers. There's an undercurrent of tenderness to it that keeps the story from feeling abjectly grim and exploitative (which I've seen other, more Bret Easton Ellis-y authors do). At the same time, t" Read more of this review »

Introducing Consciousness by David Papineau
Rate this book
Clear rating
A snappy, accessible introduction to the topic of consciousness in philosophy. Does what it says on the tin!
