I have the perfect book recommendation for Horror Matsuri – Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women, edited by Lee Murray and Geneve Flynn and just released on September 26, 2020. I picked this up yesterday and can’t wait to read it! And how awesome is this cover?
Almond-eyed celestial, the filial daughter, the perfect wife. Quiet, submissive, demure. In Black Cranes, Southeast Asian writers of horror both embrace and reject these traditional roles in a unique collection of stories which dissect their experiences of ‘otherness’, be it in the colour of their skin, the angle of their cheekbones, the things they dare to write, or the places they have made for themselves in the world.
Black Cranes is a dark and intimate exploration of what it is to be a perpetual outsider.
If you have any more good Asian horror/ dark fantasy book recommendations, please get in touch and I’ll share them here.
