Horror Spotlight’s Readalong July 2023

Horror Spotlight’s Readalong July 2023

In July we will be reading Our Wives Under the Sea by Julia Armfield for the readalong in the Horror Spotlight discord. You can join the discord with this link.

Miri thinks she has got her wife back, when Leah finally returns after a deep-sea mission that ended in catastrophe. It soon becomes clear, though, that Leah is not the same. Whatever happened in that vessel, whatever it was they were supposed to be studying before they were stranded on the ocean floor, Leah has brought part of it back with her, onto dry land and into their home.

Moving through something that only resembles normal life, Miri comes to realize that the life that they had before might be gone. Though Leah is still there, Miri can feel the woman she loves slipping from her grasp.

The readalong begins July 1, and discussions will take place throughout the month of June on the Horror Spotlight discord server. Everyone is welcome to join. See you there!


Bonus Buddy Read

We are also doing a Buddy Read of The Merry Dredgers by Jeremy C. Shipp.  It is currently ongoing. 

Seraphina Ramon will stop at nothing to find out the truth about why her sister Eff is in a coma after a very suspicious "accident." Even if it means infiltrating the last place Seraphina knows Eff was alive: a once-abandoned amusement park now populated by a community of cultists.

Follow Seraphina through the mouth of the Goblin: To the left, a wolf-themed roller coaster rests on the blackened earth, curled up like a dead snake. To the right, an animatronic Humpty Dumpty falls off a concrete castle and shatters on the ground, only to reform itself moments later. Up ahead, cultists giggle as they meditate in a hall of mirrors. This is the last place in the world Seraphina
