Ah, my favorite kind of novel ... Shen Fever has wiped out most of the world's population. Somehow Candace Chen, a diligent office worker at a speciality Bible production firm, finds herself having escaped the scourge only to fall in with a group of survivors led by Bob, a drunk-with-power former IT manager. Part office satire, part millennial coming-of-age story, all wrapped up with a post-apocalyptic bow. Yes, please.

I’ll be honest: as soon as I saw King’s name on this novella I grabbed it, thinking it would be a work of horror. I was mistaken, but what a wonderful mistake it was! King has produced a masterfully engrossing piece of speculative fiction that perfectly responds to the current political climate, and makes you believe that maybe, just maybe, things can get better. This is a beautiful, heartfelt, and ultimately heartwarming story that had me smiling and crying as it came to a close.

Paul Tremblay has written some of my favorite books over the past few years. A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS + DISAPPEARANCE AT DEVIL's ROCK are both incredible. If you read the description on the back of the book and it sounds up your alley, you've gotta read this book! Tense, scary, warm, and tender, this book will get inside your head. Lock the doors and start reading!

Octavia Butler saw the future with this 1998 classic: "Jarret condems the burnings, but does so in such mild language that his people are free to hear what they want to hear. As for the beatings...he has a simple answer: Join us! Help us to make America great again."
