"Green Fuse Burning is an impressively vigorous fiction debut from a truly dynamic storyteller. Tiffany Morris has laid out a concise and creepy tale that mesmerizes as it weaves through several realms, from the tangible to the spiritual. I was captivated by the looming mystery and the striking imagery that carried me like a current to the story's monumental resolution. This book is a must-read in new speculative fiction!" - Waubgeshig Rice, author of Moon of the Turning Leaves
"Morris quietly dazzles and disquiets in this weird horror novella ... Poetic and grotesque imagery drives the novella's horror, with fluid narration fostering a sense of disconnect and dread ... This is a subtle and refreshing twist on the cabin in the woods trope." - Publishers Weekly starred review
"A verdant alienation seeps through every page as Morris reimagines the possibilities of decay, a desperate isolation scouring the mind to reveal a torrid, seething strangeness beneath, the inevitable reckoning gathering its strength below the calm surface of the pond." - Andrew F. Sullivan, author of The Marigold and The Handyman Method
"In this Indigenous swampcore novella, Tiffany Morris ... masterfully reclaims cosmic horror from its white tradition, and that's so important because the genre has big problems(TM) with its philosophy, not just its heritage. I'm in such awe of her execution and the quietness and humbleness of the story, how she spins it all into something meaningful and new. Green Fuse Burning is an astonishing work that processes personal and planetary grief, and leads the reader through a viscerally healing experience." - Joe Koch, author of The Wingspan of Severed Hands
"Lush and innovative. You can tell from the start that you're in for something different. Green Fuse Burning digs its fingers through fertile layers of ecology, grief, and twin apocalypses to explore transformative death with a beauty both isolating and unsettling." - Hailey Piper, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Queen of Teeth"This book is strongly recommended for anyone looking for a layered narrative of dark fantasy, ecological awareness, queer and indigenous politics, in an inventive hybrid form." - Joshua Gage, for Cemetery Dance Magazine
