Here are the books that came in last week.
From the Neck Up and Other Stories by Aliya Whiteley (Titan Books, 9/14/2021)
The new collection of beautiful, strange and disarming short stories from the award-winning author of Clarke Award nominee and Aliya Whiteley. In 16 stories Whiteley deftly unpeels the strangeness of everyday life through beguiling gardens, rebellious bodies and journeys across familiar worlds, with her trademark wit and compassion.
Witness the future of farming in a new Ice Age, or the artist bringing life to glass; the many-eyed monsters we carry and the secret cities inside our bodies; the alien invasion through our language to the Chantress and her twists on the fairy tale. Fascinating and always unexpected, Whiteley is unlike any other writer working today.
I absolutely loved Whiteley's Skyward Inn, it was one of my favourite books so far this year. So of course I can't wait to get back into more of her writing.
The Hood by Lavie Tidhar (Head of Zeus, 10/7/2021)
I've heard great things about Lavie Tidhar so I can't wait to get into The Hood.
Murder At The House on the Hill by Victoria Walters (Hera Books, 9/23/2021)
I've seen this book on other blogs and it sounds like the perfect cozy thriller for the stormy nights we've been having.
Mrs. Caliban by Laura Ingalls (Faber & Faber, 8/5/2021)
