Genre Friday: Horror (5/20/22)

Confronting the terrifying memories of a childhood spent in a cult + a meteor shower that leaves widespread destruction behind + a retelling of Edgar Allen Poe’s THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER = today’s horror spotlight!

JUST LIKE MOTHER BY ANNE HELTZEL

“Heltzel’s adult debut is a fast-paced, creepy, and unpredictable adventure that shines an unsettling light on motherhood and family ties. A page-turner from start to finish, JUST LIKE MOTHER smoothly blends horror and thriller elements while adding a sharp commentary on corrupted feminism.”–Booklist

BLACK TIDE BY KC JONES

“Jones’ debut novel unfolds like a movie, a terrifying nightmare come to life, an intense, realistic portrayal of an alien invasion… The action-oriented, blisteringly fast-paced plot is authentically rendered; but beware, not all make it out alive…”–Booklist

WHAT MOVES THE DEAD BY T. KINGFISHER

“Kingfisher adds wonderful dimension and tangibility to the classic Poe story, filling it in with standout character work and scenic descriptions that linger on the palate… It’s thoroughly creepy and utterly enjoyable.”–Publishers Weekly
