Acceptance - Jeff VanderMeer

An extremely worthy denouement to an eerie and moving series. Part scientific survey, part political drama, part literary, and part weird fiction, it's not a simple trilogy to describe. The inner reflections and turmoil of the characters are much more studied than is typical of a genre book, their conclusions far more philosophical, and yet the landscape and situation is too undeniably alien and fantastical to mistake it for your typical literary fiction either.

Horrorstor - Grady Hendrix

Set in a Scandinavian furniture superstore unsubtly modeled on Ikea, Horrorstör is a startlingly fresh and creatively designed approach to storytelling and social commentary. Grady Hendrix’s book creepily depicts both the supernatural and economic forces hounding Horrorstör’s characters without taking itself too seriously. Its excellent pacing and sharp wit make it a pleasure to read even as the updated haunted-house plot dissects classic horror tropes and several of the book’s characters. Horrorstör could be classified as “humor” or “social theory” as easily as “horror,” but no matter what shelf you find it on, this book is worth your time.

American Elsewhere - Robert Jackson Bennett

American Elsewhere is flawlessly paced, terrifying, and unsettling right from the first page (or perhaps even the title). This book might remind you of Bradbury, or Danielewski, or King. But while it has undertones of all these greats, it is all Robert Jackson Bennett, and he is very, very good. (Plus, there is an abandoned science laboratory!)
