Jawbone was one of the most gripping and unsettling books I've read in while. The story revolves around a group of upper-class teenage girls and one of their teachers. It's about the horror of becoming a woman, mother-daughter relationships, as well as a sort of meta-commentary on horror itself. This is the first English language translation of celebrated Ecuadorian author Mónica Ojeda and I can't wait for more translations of her work. [Adrienne]

Dead Collections is a whirlwind romance between an archivist vampire and a widow on a journey of self-discovery. Not only is Sol navigating "life" as a vampire, but as a trans man whose transition slowed after his death. This book is sharp, funny, sexy, and full of so much heart. And, you do not need to like vampire stories generally to fall in love with this book, as I did! [Adrienne]

Structured as a series of interview excerpts with employees - some human, some humanoid - on a doomed spaceship. Eerie, foreboding, and darkly comedic, this slim novel tackles big questions on the nature of work and being human. One of the most thought-provoking pieces of fiction I've read in a long time.
