Paper Tigers by Damien Angelica Walters is available for pre-order, and you’ll want to go ahead and do that, because it looks fantastic:
In this haunting and hypnotizing novel, a young woman loses everything–half of her body, her fiancé, and possibly her unborn child–to a terrible apartment fire. While recovering from the trauma, she discovers a photo album inhabited by a predatory ghost who promises to make her whole again, all while slowly consuming her from the inside out.
Experimental Film by Gemma Files is available now:
A contemporary ghost story in which former Canadian film history teacher Lois Cairns – jobless and depressed in the wake of her son’s autism diagnosis – accidentally discovers the existence of lost early 20th century Ontario filmmaker Mrs. A. Macalla Whitcomb. By deciding to investigate how Mrs. Whitcomb’s obsessions might have led to her mysterious disappearance, Lois unwittingly invites the forces which literally haunt Mrs. Whitcomb’s films into her life, eventually putting her son, her husband and herself in danger. Experimental Film mixes painful character detail with a creeping aura of dread to produce a fictionalized “memoir” designed to play on its readers’ narrative expectations and pack an existentialist punch.
If you’re not aware of these two authors, give these books a try. I know you’ll be glad you did.
