LaValle is one of the most interesting writers around, working recently in horror, here he directly confronts H.P. Lovecraft's racism and vastly improves the genre with his unique style.
Weird, wild, mysterious....I love Chris Abani's work.
I love everything Brubaker & Phillips come up with. Noir set in old Hollywood? Perfect.
VELVET >= JANE BOND = ASS KICKING LADY-LED COMIC SERIES
John Banville writing as Benjamin Black writing as Raymond Chandler in a phenomenal Phillip Marlowe mystery.
So cool, so inventive, the first book of my new favorite scifi series.
Roxane Gay has my full attention -- check out her excellent essay collection Bad Feminist too.
The most engaging book I've read in years. Top shelf true crime.
An unproduced screenplay about a lost blues legend makes this feel like a constant discovery.
My top shelf favorite. The unfilmable tome for cinephiles.
