Some evils are so great that they transcend death. In Brandon Massey's The Patriarch, a young writer travels to the hushed backwoods of Mississippi, where dangerous secrets surface as a generations-old feud comes to bone-chilling new life. . .


The souls of the mistreated always find a way to be heard. In L.A. Banks's Ev'ry Shut Eye Ain't Sleep, violent visions haunt a man--until he's handed an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past and prevent unspeakable acts from occurring once again. . .


When horrors are covered up and lost, our ancestors must find a way--even in death--to tell their tales. In Tananarive Due's Ghost Summer, ancestors haunt the nights of two children. And when a grisly discovery is made, these ancestors will make their mark on both the dead and the living. . .

Massey ventures into areas unexplored by most other black novelists. The result is artful and stunning. --Chicago Tribune

Tananarive Due is creating classics. --Tina McElroy Ansa

Banks's writing is lush and detailed, fully bringing her characters to life (or unlife), weaving a complex world of Good vs. Evil with its own intricate hierarchy. --Fangoria Magazine
