Look Out For … The Job of the Wasp by Colin Winnette

The Job of the Wasp by Colin Winnette - cover

 “Winnette takes on the gothic ghost story, delivering ghastly chills with a literary flair. “

Newly arrived at an exclusive boys’ school for orphans, it doesn’t take long to realize something isn’t right. His classmates are extremely hostile, and the Headmaster is more than a little … extreme. And there’s the whispers he hears at night, and the strange messages from the Headmaster, telling him to confess. As each day in his new surroundings grows more tense and violent, he really doesn’t have anywhere else to turn. When the bodies start turning up, he realizes it’s much too late to run.

Why we’re excited about this book:

This time of the year is perfect for coming-of-age ghost stories, especially one that sounds as mysterious and intriguing as this. Winnette is no stranger to genre writing, tapping into Westerns with Haints Stay, and contemporary thrillers with Coyote. With publications in PlayboyLos Angeles Review of Books, and Lucky Peach, Winnette takes on the gothic ghost story, delivering  ghastly chills with a literary flair.

Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble, calls The Job of the Wasp “A witty and grisly gothic unlike anything I’ve ever read. You should absolutely read this.” Releasing 9 January 2018 from Soft Skull Press, The Job of the Wasp by Colin Winnette is available for pre-order over at Amazon.
