"Eden Royce is among the most vital and vibrant voices working in the horror and fantasy genres today. Now with her latest collection, Who Lost, I Found: Stories, she once again delves into the haunted lives of women and girls in ways that are by turns surprising, heartbreaking, horrifying, and utterly empowering. Needless to say, every tale in this table of contents is a knockout. Read this incredible book, and then be sure to recommend it to all your friends." (Gwendolyn Kiste, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Rust Maidens, Pretty Marys All in a Row, and Reluctant Immortals)

"In Who Lost, I Found, Eden Royce treats readers to a Southern Gothic literary feast. Prose that sings and stories that pluck on all the right heartstrings. This collection is a beautifully nuanced blend of Gothic horror and folklore, the kind of tales that will linger long after you've read the last line." (Veronica G. Henry, author of Bacchanal, The Quarter Storm, and The Foreign Exchange)

"Endlessly absorbing. A charismatic, ensnaring collection of haunted locales and legacies, with a magic both bloody and wondrous. I couldn't tear myself away. Royce deftly navigates her sea of stories to enchant your imagination, make your skin crawl, and even break your heart." (Hailey Piper, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Queen of Teeth)

"In Who Lost, I Found, Eden Royce's lyrical prose invites readers into the lives of Southern conjure women, haints, sentient houses, Mami Watas, and caterers of the dead. A house gets up and moves inland when it senses a hurricane brewing. A death row inmate makes an unusual request for her last meal from a BBQ joint that offers more than meets the eye. A graverobbing rootworker uses tea magic to bring home the lost bodies of lynching victims. A djinn braids hair and changes lives at a salon. And a weaver guards the veil between worlds. Skirting the lines between the surreal, horror, and fantasy, Who Lost, I Found is a triumph of a collection by a supremely gifted writer that deserves nothing but the highest praise." (Yvette Lisa Ndlovu, author of Drinking from Graveyard Wells)
