The Only Good Indians
“I loved this book. Jones has a unique narrative voice, allowing ‘the entity’ to step in and take over unexpectedly, amping up the horror. Also, each character has a distinct voice that brings them to life. Jones combines the culture and traditions of the Blackfeet and Crow people with the social truths of their contemporary life. It is refreshingly different from any other horror novel I’ve read. This book is gruesome and honestly scary. I couldn’t put it down.”Kristine Jelstrom-Hamill, Buttonwood Books and Toys

Alice Isn't Dead
“Joseph Fink is my hero for making extreme anxiety a superpower and something from which a person can draw strength. Like the Welcome to Night Vale novels, Alice Isn’t Dead evinces a gentleness throughout the story, but as with Keisha, the protagonist, don’t mistake that for weakness. This novel is a road trip into the depths of human love even in the midst of experiencing inexplicable and weird horrors. It will linger with you long after you finish reading it.”Christine Havens, BookPeople

Narrated by: Zachary Quinto, Wil Wheaton, Kate Mulgrew, Neil Gaiman, Ashleigh Cummings, Joe Hill, Laysla De Oliveira, Nate Corddry, Connor Jessup, Stephen Lang & George Guidall
Length: 16 hours 12 minutes
“It's one thing to spin an entire novel's worth full of horror, but to capture it in just a few short pages is another art altogether. Joe Hill is a master. These stories range from conventionally creepy to unexpectedly unnerving. Several, like "You Are Released," I had encountered before, but they're no less haunting the second time around.”Caitlin, Brilliant Books Audio
A Spindle Splintered
“What if every version of every fairy tale existed, side by side, like parallel universes? What if you could travel between them? And... what if every heroine in every world were as different as the magic objects and villains and settings in each version? What if, for example, one Sleeping Beauty would much rather be awakened by a girl from our world who won't let domineering monarchs, inevitable curses, or guys with swords stand in her way? Bonus points for a very different Maleficent, clever pop culture references, and a fresh angle on what counts as a version of a fairy tale.”Nialle, The Haunted Bookshop

“This is an onion of a mystery, layers deep, each one - each story wrapped around the shocking event at the center - shaped carefully around details that push the reader's suspicions in every direction. The old, dense wood beside the never-prosperous village was bound to give rise to scary stories, and an event - was it real? - decades before gave the town a particularly creepy bogeyman, upon whom an inventive child fixates until he has drawn his friends into an escalating course of action. Twenty years later, one of those children returns to the village, but has no wish to reengage with the past. The bogeyman haunts everyone here in different ways, though, and when an old clue and a new disappearance coincide, Paul can't keep the indifferent distance he forces to protect himself from the memory nobody can escape. ...Capturing the foreboding of 1990's horror films and the wistfulness of a life frozen by calamity, this book won my affection with its depiction of an independent bookstore and the vibrant person at its core, but its many emotionally rich moments, like little dapples of sunlight across a forest floor, will provide every reader with that moment of love that makes the horror that much more disturbing!”Nialle, The Haunted Bookshop
The Cabin at the End of the World
“Wen and her dads are taking a break from everything by visiting a remote cabin for vacation. Wen is studying grasshoppers in their yard when a man comes up and warns her that she and her dads are going to have to make a decision. And that’s about all I can tell you without spoiling the story. This book was so creepy, in a very good way. I’d classify this as horror, but very realistic.”Jennifer Jones, Bookmiser
