“Mohamed takes a dive into the bottomless pit of cosmic horror with emotionally vibrant tales of uncanny dread.”
Gods and monsters … cast from stone, flesh, and vengeance.
From the icy abyss of space, from the dark ocean waters. They prowl strange cities, entering worlds of chaos where science and humanity are tested to the limit. The old offerings cannot appease these ancient Gods.
Life and death, love and hate, science and magic. Grinning monsters wearing human skin.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Premee Mohamed is one of the best fantasists writing today, dipping her toes into the worlds of horror, science fiction, and fantasy, often all at once. The author of And What Can We Offer You Tonight, The Void Trilogy, The Annual Migration of Clouds, The Apple-Tree Throne, and These Lifeless Things, her short fiction has been featuring in such publications and anthologies as Edify Magazine, Tales and Feathers, The Deadlands, Nightmare, and The Gollancz Book of South Asian Sci-Fi Volume 2 among others. Mohamed takes a dive into the bottomless pit of cosmic horror with emotionally vibrant tales of uncanny dread. Publishers Weekly says: “Dark, strange, and wonderfully wild … by turns brutal and tender, terrifying and sweet … Mohamed accomplishes the rare feat of maintaining a sense of human connection no matter how outlandish the stories’ premises. The result will both terrify and delight.”. John Langan (Corpsemouth and Other Biographies) says: “In Premee Mohamed’s elegant, arresting stories, flawed, fragile characters face entities and events vast and strange. The result is the best kind of fiction, moving and memorable.”, and Cassandra Khaw (The Salt Grows Heavy) says No One Will Come Back For Us is “Mesmeric, beautifully human, limned with a heart-broken tenderness even in its darkest moments.”
Forthcoming from Undertow Publications 16 May 2023, No One Will Come Back For Us by Premee Mohamed is available for pre-order now.
