Even though it’s still Mystery Month over at Booklist, they’ve put together their Top 10 SF/Fantasy/Horror reading lists with several Macmillan titles:
Top 10 SF/Fantasy: 2015 (full list)
CALIFORNIA BONES by Greg Van Eekhout
This fantasy-adventure is structured like a caper novel, and fans of stories about heists will enjoy it, but it’s an absolute must for urban-fantasy readers.
Top 10 Horror: 2015 (full list)
FALL OF NIGHT by Jonathan Maberry
Picking up at the very moment DEAD OF NIGHT ended, this sequel throws the reader headlong into a zombie plague. Maberry, no slouch at action and suspense, does some of his most visceral and terrifying writing ever here.
THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS by Adam Neville
From the opening line’s echo of Manderley (“As if by a dream Catherine came to the Red House”), readers will find themselves in the sickly sweet, rotted-silk grip of a decaying gothic nightmare. A haunted-house tale like no other, this is one of those rare horror novels that’s upsetting enough to make the reader want to take the damn thing out back and bury it.
LOCK IN by John Scalzi
An August 2014 LibraryReads pick! This tightly plotted, highly imaginative tale takes place about 25 years after a virus called Haden’s syndrome left a small percentage of the world’s population locked inside their own bodies, conscious but unable to interact in any way. A genre-blending triumph that combines horror, mystery, and science fiction. readmoreremove
Happy #ThrillerThursday! We’ve got two terrific mysteries AND great news about CWA Dagger Award nominations!
FALL OF NIGHT by Jonathan Maberry
“Maberry does some of his best writing in this sequel to 2011’s DEAD OF NIGHT. Maberry, no slouch when it comes to action and suspense, seems to have found new energy here, as though he’s been jump-started by the story he’s telling. He still has a lot of books ahead of him, so calling this his masterpiece would be premature, but a case could be made that this is the best—and most terrifying—book he’s written so far.” — Booklist, starred review
DE POTTER’S GRAND TOUR by Joanna Scott
In 1905, a tourist agent and amateur antiques collector named Armand de Potter mysteriously disappeared off the coast of Greece. When his wife is left to piece together his life, she realizes that everything was not as it seemed. “Ardently researched and sporting historic de Potter photographs, this smart, brisk, witty, and provocative novel is alight with vivid descriptions of the de Potters’ travels, and electric with Agatha Christie–like suspense.” — Booklist
Two Macmillan mysteries were shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association Dagger awards!
