bookshelves: horror, weird

Tremendous horror novel from T Kingfisher, beautifully written and profoundly disturbing. It's inspired by The Willows by Algernon Blackwood, which is insanely creepy in a hard to define way, with bonus taxidermy. And even though it's a combination of cosmic, existential and body horror, there is also enough of Kingfisher's deep warmth and kindness here to give you hope: cursing the darkness, but still lighting the candle.

Writing this on day 4129 of the US election and this is the only book I've managed to read in about a week, which is high praise.
