The Changeling - Joy Williams

Staff Pick

The night after finishing The Changeling, I had a nightmare so bad that I lashed out with my left foot while asleep and smashed my big toenail. Such is the degree that this book got under my skin. An inspiration for short story writers like Kelly Link and Karen Russell, The Changeling is essential reading on its own merits as a story about parenting, animals, the mundane and the starkly and horrifically transcendent.

Sisyphean - Dempow Torishima

Staff Pick

Dueling colonies of beetles convinced they are humans. The memories of a city encrusted within a jewel. Plainsmen ferrying their sluglike cattle across a desert of nanomachines that respond to your dreams. This is a book of four interconnected novellas detailing futures far removed from ours, tied together by strands of tendon, regret and bloody viscera. Reminiscent of Jeff Vandermeer, Michael Cisco and Toh Enjoe. Don't read this while you're eating!

"Oh, this? It's laced with drugs." So begins the infamous comic that inspired this year's popular anime Devilman Crybaby, assembled in English for the first time! Dated it may be, and riddled with scenes that range from horrifying to insensitive. But a beating heart pulses beneath the absurd surface of this story: Akira Fudo fights demons to keep his friends and family safe, but a greater evil still may lurk within the heart of man. Witness the tale that traumatized all your favorite artists when they were children.
