Author of BENEATH THE RISING Premee Mohamed’s THESE LIFELESS THINGS, about a woman who survived the end of the world and the young anthropologist who discovers her journal years later, a discovery that could shed light on the Invasion and turn the unyielding mystery of the short war into a story of hope and defiance, to David Moore at Solaris Books, for publication in 2021, by Michael Curry.
Eva is a survivor. She’s not sure what she survived, exactly, only that They invaded without warning, killed nearly all of humanity, and relentlessly attack everyone who’s left. All she can do to stay sane, in the blockaded city that’s no longer home, is keep a journal about her struggle.
Fifty years later, Eva’s words are found by Emerson, a young anthropologist sent to the ruins to study what happened. The discovery could shed light on the Invasion, turning the unyielding mystery of the short war into a story of hope and defiance.
Author of BENEATH THE RISING Premee Mohamed’s AND WHAT CAN WE OFFER YOU TONIGHT, a story of murder and vengeance in a city where anyone without a valid employment wristband can legally be hunted and killed by the government, to Dave Ring at Neon Hemlock, for publication in summer 2021, by Michael Curry.
NPR: Elatsoe – Ellie to her friends – is an asexual Lipan Apache girl who can raise the ghosts of dead animals, in a world where fairies and vampires are acknowledged members of American society. When she’s visited in a dream by a cousin telling her he’s been murdered, she and her parents resolve to support his widow and child through their mourning – as well as solve the mystery of his murder and bring his killer to justice. Warm and spooky, charming and devastating by turns, Elatsoe brims over with love and deep grief, held in the stronger arms of family and community.
