More From ChiZine

Here’s the final batch of new books from ChiZine. I don’t know much about any of these, though they do all appear to fit with ChiZine’s usual preference for the darker end of fantasy and horror.

Every House is Haunted by Ian Rogers is a debut collection of horror novels with a rave recommendation from no less than Laird Barron.

Hair Side, Flesh Side by Helen Marshall is also a debut horror collection. I remember Alisa Krasnostein enthusing about this one on Galactic Suburbia. Alisa, of course, if known for publishing the likes of Kaaron Warren and Margo Lanagan (and a Kirstyn McDermott book just launched, I believe), so her opinions on such books should be highly respected.

Stories from the Plague Years by Michael Marano also appears to be a horror collection. I see from the blurb that one of the stories, “Displacement”, was a Shirley Jackson award nominee.

The odd book out is The Book of Thomas, Volume One: Heaven by Robert Boyczuk. It is a novel, and despite the creepy cover it appears to be more grim satire than horror. Boyczuk has a Big Idea post at John Scalzi’s blog explaining his concept for the books.
