The Vampire of Northanger

The Vampire of Northanger

I confess I haven't read Austen, but this modern re-imagining of her work—by translocating it into a world where vampires are real—makes me want to give her a try. My only fear is that her entirely vampireless exploits won't live up to the dark and nuanced ballet of inter-species manners that Anderson has fashioned from her more pallid offerings.

Rust: Season One

Rust: Season One

After being pushed in front of the subway, Kimberly Archer finds herself in an impossible town with a husband she's never seen before and a life she can't remember. The rain never stops, the phones don't work and the doctors think she's delusional. And that's on a good day.

Imagine Stephen King siring a love-beast upon the dead and moldering remains of HP Lovecraft. That's Rust. Right from the opening scene that leaves us questioning just what is real and what is not, Ruz plunges us full-screaming into the chaotic afterlife of one Kimberley Archer, who is either single and dead, or living in hell, unable to escape the devoted husband and child she has no memory of ever having met. This one will creep you out completely.

Catskinner’s Book

Catskinner’s Book

My most gripping reads are almost always the ones where the very premise itself grabs my attention in a choke hold, and such is the case here. Long-time loser James Ozwryck finally has a life: a small apartment, a regular job, and a steady income. There's even plenty of time for video games. It might not be much, but it's his. And to keep it, all he has to do is let a demon borrow his body from time to time. You know, to kill people. It's a pretty sweet deal.

Pilgrim of the Storm

Pilgrim of the Storm

Everyone loves an underdog story, but those usually involve human underdogs. This time however, our hero is a lowly insectoid boy named Sidge, born into a race of slaves but valiantly trying to make his way in the world of his human "betters." Instead of being lauded for his efforts to fit in though, his impurity has only made him a target of derision and abuse. Surely that will fade once he proves himself, right? All he has to do is to survive a dangerous cross-country journey at the mercy of the very people who seem to hate him most.
