Ram V$16.99 $15.80
"Despite appearances, this is not your run of the mill vampire horror novel. Ram V's "These Savage Shores" is an insightful historical drama that utilizes its vampiric themes to explore India's fraught history with colonialism. Twin themes of dehumanization and exploitation allow these seemingly disparate genres to pare like blood and wine."
Diana Wynne Jones$11.99 $11.15
Diana's books are as whimsical as they are witty, as fanciful as they are acerbic, which is what makes them perfect for all ages. Though I have reread this many times, Sophie and her odd assortment of magical company felt like old friends from the very first read.
Abby Howard$18.00 $16.74
Abby is something of a powerhouse in horror comics right now, and this new anthology has some of her greatest stories yet. Not for the faint of heart; if you want something so beautifully drawn that you can't look away, but so chilling that you wish you could, this is the book for you.
Kobi Yamada and Mae Besom$17.95 $16.69
My mother handed this to me the day I graduated high school. She told me to take it to college and to read it whenever I was unsure, frustrated, or out of ideas. It was my constant companion for four years, and it never failed to put a smile to my face or a lightbulb above my head.
