Brooke Bolander writes weird things of indeterminate genre. Her stories have been featured in Lightspeed, Strange Horizons, NightmareUncanny. She has been a finalist for the Nebula, the Hugo, the Locus, the Theodore Sturgeon, and the World Fantasy awards. Her debut book, The Only Harmless Great Thing, has been called "a goddamn joy" (Warren Ellis), “devastatingly powerful" (Helen Macdonald), "a brutal story beautifully told" (Chuck Wendig), "poetic and poignant" (Guardian), "tragic and triumphant" (Joe Scalzi), and "absorbing... a handcrafted arrow of a novella" (Kirkus), "A searing meditation on myth, history, and the persistence of poison in all its terrible forms. Bolander gives voice to the voiceless with such controlled and perfect fury the pages seem to char and burn as you read. I can’t stop thinking about it. Nor will you.” ―Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk

Josh Malerman is the internationally bestselling, Bram Stoker Award–nominated author of Bird Box (recently turned into a feature movie starring Sandra Bullock, John Malkovich, and Sarah Paulson,) as well as the lead singer/ songwriter for the rock band The High Strung, whose song "The Luck You Got" is the theme for Showtime's  "Shameless."  His most recent novel, Unbury Carol, has been called a "Poe story set in the weird West" (Stephen Graham Jones), "breathtaking and menacing . . . an intricately plotted, lyrical page-turner about love, betrayal, revenge, and the primal fear of being buried alive" (Booklist, starred review), and "bleakly lyrical à la Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor" (Library Journal, starred review). 

Location 510 George Street, Murray Hall 302
