Why we’re excited about this book:
Readers should be very familiar with the work of 5 time Stoker Award winning Lucy A. Snyder. She is the author of Spellbent, Shotgun Sorceress, and Switchblade Goddess, the nonfiction book Shooting Yourself in the Head for Fun and Profit: A Writer’s Survival Guide, and the short-story collections While the Black Stars Burn, Soft Apocalypses, Orchid Carousals, Chimeric Machines, and most recently, Halloween Season, and her short fiction has appeared in such publications as Asimov’s Science Fiction, Apex Magazine, Nightmare Magazine, Pseudopod, Strange Horizons, and Best Horror of the Year. Snyder’s latest novel, inspired by her Bram Stoker Award-winning story ‘Magdala Amygdala’, delivers a cosmic horror apocalypse of nightmarish proportions. Premee Mohamed (the Beneath the Rising series) calls Sister, Maiden, Monster: “Unflinchingly gory, fast-paced and full of disasters both expected and unexpected … you have never read another cosmic horror like this. It’s impossible to look away.”, and Gwendolyn Kiste (The Rust Maidens, Reluctant Immortals) says: “Unsettling and unexpectedly timely, Sister, Maiden, Monster is horror at its best. Snyder pulls out all the stops with this powerful and unflinching novel, dealing with the fallout of a pandemic and the omnipresent, creeping terror that can only come from your own body turning against you. Put this book at the top of your reading list immediately.”
