The Barrow Will Send What It May

Margaret Killjoy. Tor.com, $3.99 e-book (112p) ISBN 978-0-7653-9737-9
This punk anarchist postapocalyptic fantasy novella, sequel to The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion, sees series heroine Danielle Cain and her crew on the run. Stopping in a secluded town turned anarchist stronghold, Danielle and her cohort are welcomed by several of the town’s undead residents and soon enmeshed in a war between the living and the dead. They confront a powerful necromancer who summons an otherworldly entity, wielding enough power to break down the barriers between this world and the next. Writing with superb energy, Killjoy captures both the human drama and the supernatural suspense in the breakdown of the known world. Killjoy creates a multifaceted magic without burdening the text with needless exposition, intertwining the human and magical elements in a tale that captures the depth of humankind’s endless grappling with the everpresent specter of death. Fans will be very entertained and look forward to the next installment in the series. Agent: Connor Goldsmith, Fuse Literary. (Apr.)
