Click on the book title link to read the Goodreads description:
The Lesser Dead by Christopher Buehlman. I’m dying to read this vampire story set in the 1970s! This just came out, so I don’t even have a copy for myself yet. Here’s a blurb from Publishers Weekly:
“The sharply witty tone and graphic style mine the darker facets of vampirism, while Joey’s complex relationship with Margaret, and the poignant, prickly camaraderie he shares with Cvetko, an older vampire, add heft and humanity to Buehlman’s distinctive, twisty entry into a crowded genre.”—Publishers Weekly
Motherless Child by Glen Hirshberg. I have a copy of this book, although I haven’t had time to read it yet. It’s received some rave reviews, including this one from Horrorworld:
“A heartbreaking exploration of friendship, motherhood, love, loss, and loyalty. Motherless Child is a staggeringly good novel, and if I had any complaint, it’s that it ended too soon. Highly recommended.”—Horrorworld
Revival by Stephen King. King’s latest hits stores next month, so if this is your choice, it will be a preorder. Hopefully The Book Depository will have this lovely UK cover available, which I much prefer to the US cover. Publishers Weekly loved it!
“Spellbinding…King is a master at invoking the supernatural through the powerful emotions of his characters, and his depiction of Jacobs as a man unhinged by grief but driven by insatiable scientific curiosity is as believable as it is frightening. The novel’s ending – one of King’s best – stuns like lightning.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix. This is the only one of these four that I’ve read, and I loved it! Deceptively innocent looking on the outside, but filled with some terrifying and gruesome moments, I had a blast with this book. Here’s what Kirkus Reviews has to say about it:
“…a clever little horror story…the book starts as a Palahniuk-tinged satire about the things we own…turning the psychological manipulations and scripted experiences that are inherent to the retail experience into a sinister fight for survival. A treat for fans of The Evil Dead or Zombieland, complete with affordable solutions for better living.”—Kirkus Reviews
